How do I know if I need gutters?

Rain gutters should be an integral part of every home.  The small amount you spend on gutters could save you thousands of dollars in damage that can be caused by the water that runs off your roof.  Hundreds of gallons of water run from your roof and gutters and downspouts sends all that water away from your foundation and guards from splashing on windows and exterior walls.  If you have a home…you can benefit from having a great gutter system.

How much will it cost?

Pricing varies determined by difficulty of installation e.g. pitch of roof, ground conditions surrounding the home, and if the home has more than one story. The best and most accurate quote will be one done at your home with a free estimate.

Aren’t all rain gutters the same?

The answer is NO. All rain gutters do the same job. They catch the rain water that falls from your roof, then contain and control this water to the ground.

However, rain gutters come in all shapes, sizes, materials, colors and quality. Some are pre-formed and joined together with connectors (such as the gutters you buy at your local lumber yard), and some are custom made specifically for your home (seamless).

Because the seamless type of rain gutter is custom made, the material used, the various component parts, the layout plan, the installation, and the quality of workmanship will not be consistent from company to company.

If I have leaf protection installed, will I still have to clean my roof and how often?

Roofs need to be cleaned if you have standing debris. We recommend blowing off your roof twice a year or as needed to keep the roof clean.  The gutter guards will need to be maintained with a yearly cleaning or blowing to remove the dirt and debris from the screen.

You carry leaf screens, but do I really need them if I don’t have trees in my yard?

Even if you don’t have trees in your yard, we strongly recommend having leaf screens installed on your new rain gutters. Any object on your roof will eventually end up in your gutter and may clog the downspout. The last thing you need to be doing is trying to unclog a downspout in a rain storm. Adding leaf screen to your new rain gutters will assure you of year round protection from overflowing gutters and clogged downspouts.
