The Purpose Of 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, Landscaping.

Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles, birds nest. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Snow & Ice can loosen fasteners and should be repaired immediately to prevent costly repairs.

There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including...

  • steel
  • aluminum
  • vinyl
  • 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.

* We always recommend a professional for maintaining your Guttering System.


Seamless Gutters

What are seamless gutters?
Continuous Rain Guttering, Also known as Seamless Guttering "Seamless Gutters" is nationally recognized as the most popular form of guttering. Seventy-five % of all guttering installed throughout the nation is continuous. Its popularity is easily understood because...
  • Continuous Rain Guttering, Seamless Guttering, eliminates unsightly seams
  • Reduces the possibility of leaks
  • Baked on enamel finish never needs painting
  • Protects the beauty of your home and landscaping
  • Formed on the job site for exact measurements
  • Most jobs are completed in one day
  • Many colors from which to choose from

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.
