Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Many gutters can be re-pitched, reattached or resealed. However, after extended use deteriorating gutters can continue to cause foundation and staining problems. It’s usually more economical and attractive to replace them.
Your gutters are manufactured in one continuous length and installed to your specifications on site. Even though they are called seamless, there are seams on the ends where a cap is used and on corners using a miter.
- Aluminum – Will not rust and is the least expensive product. Aluminum gutters come with a 25 year warrantee against cracking, peeling or chipping of the factory finish.
- Galvanized Steel – Steel gutters are slightly thicker, more expensive and have a limited color selection.
- Copper – Considered the most dramatic aesthetically, copper gutters will not rust, require no paint and are considered the longest lasting material currently for gutters.
In Houston, aluminum is the most commonly used material for gutters. Most homeowners choose aluminum because it is inexpensive, lightweight, rust free, and available in 24 colors. Although more expensive, seamless copper gutters carry a certain prestige and durability and can last for decades.
Drip flashing is the metal edge that is installed up and under shingles at the fascia. This metal strip allows the back side of the gutter to be installed so water will flow off the roof and easily into the gutter
Our experience has found the best way to attach gutters is with a 2 inch neoprene washer wood grip screw lined up with the rafter tails.
There are several gutter protection systems available. Covers keep the smallest debris, like seed pods and pine needles from clogging the gutter. Gutter screens are more economical and work well against larger debris such as twigs and broad leaves. www.leaf-relief.com
