Gutter Repair and Cleaning
Guttering is an often overlooked, but very essential building product. Degraded or missing guttering can cause serious damage to landscaping, allow rainwater to get into basements and crawlspaces, and ruin fascia boards and siding. Guttering repair and/or installation is fairly easy, however, it usually requires ladder work, which many folks just don’t like. Ladder work can be dangerous if you don’t work carefully and safely.
Guttering is available in several materials, types and sizes. Aluminum is the most common gutter material and aluminum gutters are available in continuous or seamless designs, or in sections that are joined together. Aluminum seamless guttering is commonly installed by dealers, using a machine to extrude the guttering on the jobsite. We have specialized in seamless aluminum gutters for 30 years, offering more than 20 available colors.
Sectional gutters, available at building supply dealers and home construction stores are 10-feet in length. Longer lengths are available for custom orders, but will need some means of transporting them to the jobsite. Aluminum sectional guttering can be installed by do-it-yourselfers. However, Sectional gutters have seams at every connection, resulting in more areas for leaks. Our seamless gutters are crafted on the job site using a single piece of metal, fitted from corner to corner, allowing no seams for leakage.

Gutters that are neglected will carry heavy debris which has built up over time, in addition to standing water. That debris and water can become a heavy weight and destroy a gutter’s pitch. The pitch is the angle of the gutter which uses gravity to direct the water to the downspout. If that pitch is destroyed due to excess weight, the water will not flow to the downspout, and will instead sit still in the gutter. At that point the standing water can back up into the home or cause an infestation of insects.
