Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why install gutters on my home?
A. Without gutters, rain that runs off of your roof will collect in places around your home, causing rot damage to exterior doors and windows, and other wood which can result in extensive damage and expensive repair work. This run-off water can also damage landscaping, erode your lawn, and will eventually compromise your foundation.

 

Q. What can water damage do to my home?
A. Moisture, in all its physical forms, is commonly regarded as the single greatest threat to the durability and long-term performance of residential homes. Over time, excessive exposure to moisture can cause significant damage to many types of building components and materials, namely corrosion, insect habitation and wood rot. By controlling exposure to moisture, many other durability problems such as mold and indoor air quality, which can lead to unhealthy indoor living environments, can also be solved. There is wide agreement that successful management of moisture in its various forms is essential for houses to be safe, durable, and energy efficient. Foundation drainage is an important determinant of overall exposure to moisture. It is essential that rainwater and roof drainage be diverted away from the building perimeter to prevent leaks into basements or crawl spaces, or saturation of the ground around slab-on-grade construction.
Q. What is meant by the term “seamless”?
A. Your gutters are produced in one continuous length, on the job, to any length needed to fit your home’s specifications.

 

Q. What are the advantages of aluminum material offered for your Gutter System?
A. Aluminum is one of the least expensive products available and does not rust. Aluminum gutters are manufactured on the job to the precise measurements of your home and are pre-finished in 26 colors. They have a 50-year warranty against chipping, cracking and peeling of the factory finish.

 

Q. What is the best kind of rain gutter?
A. Aluminum is, by far, the most commonly used material for gutters. Inexpensive, relatively maintenance free (but it is recommended to clean all gutters once per year), lightweight and rust free. They are available in various colors. Although there are alternatives to aluminum (such as galvanized steel and copper), its low cost and fewer drawbacks make it the most popular choice.
