How long will it take to get a free estimate? Ordinarily, only one to two days, but we will call you much sooner!
I work during the day, do I have to be home for an estimate? No, you don't have to be home. Naturally, we would prefer that you be home so we can answer any questions you might have. Many of our customers, however, have purchased rain gutter systems from us and have never seen our estimators or installation people!
How long will it take for the work to be completed? Unless you have a very large or complex house, we will have your work completed in one or two days.
Why do I need gutters? A rain gutter (also known as eaves trough, eaves channel guttering or simply as a 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.
Aren't all rain gutters the same? 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).
Because the seamless type of rain gutter is custom made, the material used, the various component parts, the layout plan, the installation, and the quality of workmanship will not be consistent from company to company.
What is the best kind of rain gutter? There is no "best gutter". There is the best gutter for the job. As with most products, there are strong points and weak points in the various rain gutter systems. Putting up a rain gutter in an environment that it's not well suited for, is a waste of time and money.
For most homeowners, seamless aluminum (continuous aluminum) rain gutter will give you the most bang for the buck. It's available in about 20 colors and Aluminum coil usually comes painted from the factory.
How do I maintain my aluminum gutters? Aluminum gutters are mostly maintenance free, however you may want to clean them every couple of years for appearance purpose.
When should I replace my gutter? If you have steel or vinyl gutters, you will need to replace them eventually. How you tolerate maintenance on you home will determine when you should replace the gutter.
If you're the kind of person who doesn't want to be bothered with the time and money repairs demand, 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.
If you're handy and don't mind a few hours working on a ladder, you can repair the gutter yourself, and avoid replacing it for years. Keep in mind that just like a worn suit, you can't keep patching it forever. You may want to repair them for the rainy season, and plan on having them professionally replaced during the off season, when gutters are usually on sale.
