OUR GUTTERING SYSTEMS
The purpose of guttering systems is to collect water (rain) from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home. Properly configured downspouts (leaders, drain pipes) are very essential. A faulty guttering system can contribute to damage to soffit & fascia, shingles, building foundations, driveways, walkways and landscaping.
Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles and birds' nest. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures.
Gutters & Downspouts There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl and copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10’ lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings, each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. Another alternative well worth considering is the installation of seamless aluminum gutters. Seamless gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional contractor.
The term seamless gutters can be confusing because there are seams in the system. The seams are only at the corners and downspout outlets. These joints are fastened more securely and sealed for stability and leak resistance. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous which makes them both strong and visually more appealing.
The most commonly used gutter is the 6" Seamless Gutter with 3x4 downspouts for the torrential rain we get here in South Florida.
