(Q). Why do I need gutters?

(A). A rain gutter is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof. The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. They also help to reduce erosion, prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provide a means to collect rainwater for later use.

(Q).Aren’t all rain gutters the same?

(A). 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).

(Q).What is the best Gutter Guard?

(A). This is one of the most often asked, and most controversial questions in our industry. I’ll state “there is no best leaf screen, only the best one for your job, budget, and appeal”. There are three ways to keep leaves, debris, and other objects from clogging gutters. These are leave strainers, leaf screens, and solid gutter covers.

Leaf Strainers are screens or devices put over the hole to the downspout. If you can keep the hole from being blocked, the gutter will not overflow. However, this is not a substitute for frequent gutter cleaning.

Leaf Screens do just that, they screen out leaves. They are made of heavy wire mesh and when placed on the gutter, will let water in and block the leaves. However, they will let in dirt and smaller debris. Therefore, gutters still have to be cleaned, but not as often as gutters without leaf screens.

Gutter Covers are solid metal covers that fit over the gutter in such a way that they actually separate the debris from the roof water. They work on the principal of surface adhesion. That’s to say that water will stay attached to metal even when the surface changes angles. That’s where the debris separates from the roof water. It’s fascinating to watch, and it’s very effective in preventing debris from entering the gutter.
(Q).When should I replace my gutter?

(A).You should replace your gutters at the first signs of rust. Rust will often show up as little orange speckles that show through the paint, rusty colored stains at the end of the downspouts, or at gutter seams that are separated and leaking. Gutters rust from the inside out. When they begin to show rusting on the outside, the inside is rusting through. Often, however, because of standing water, the gutter may need to be repaired in just one or two areas.
