After 30 years mastering this trade, we know what works! Our clients tell us we have the highest standards in the industry. We care as much about the aesthetics, symmetry, and longevity of our gutters on your home, as you do. We are so confident in our product, that we guaranty there will be virtually no leaks for the lifetime of the gutters and that your hanger straps will not come loose. Should either of these occur, we will gladly repair them free. Listed here are but a few of the details that make all the difference when it comes to quality gutter installation and workmanship.
The seamless gutter material is a 26 gauge steel; that has a D or E grade Tensile strength. Steel gutters are the strongest and most durable rain gutters as apposed to aluminum or plastic. All pre-painted gutters are composed of a baked on enamel finish that comes with a forty (40) year warranty against peeling, cracks and /or flaking.
The type of gutter hanger and its spacing will largely determine the longevity of any gutter system. Hangers are the brackets that give the gutter its strength and support. They keep the gutter securely fastened to the eaves along the roofline, while also providing support to the front of the gutter to keep it from “Bowing Out’ from the weight of rain and snow.
We nail our hangers under the roof shingles through the top lip of the gutter. This method provides optimal support and ensures no holes or damage to the inner gutters that could result in gutter leakage. Gutters attached to a new roofline also have the added benefit of providing deeper, longer reinforced hanger brackets. As a result, we are confident that your gutter straps will never come loose or we will gladly repair them for free.
Time saving methods throughout the industry may involve pop riveting hanger straps into the lip of the gutter (see picture) as apposed to the roof eaves. The gutter itself is then nailed through the back of the gutter and directly onto the fascia board. Unfortunately, this method often involves using a claw hammer to “Gash” a 1-inch slit in the back of the gutter in order to allow the nail to penetrate into the eave. We believe this procedure only weakens the back of the gutter around the nail, provides limited attachment to the eaves, and worse, creates a gutter gash in which water will eventually seep its way into the fascia boards leading to possible dry rot.
Unlike many gutter companies, we seal both the inside and the outside of our miters and joints. We also use the best sealants on the market; Vulkem for the inside of the miters and end caps, and Ruscoe self-leveling sealant on the inside and outside of the outlets and the outside of the miters. These combined sealants ensure a beautiful, clean, and finished look. We guaranty there will be virtually no leaks for the lifetime of the gutters, or we will gladly repair them for free.
Straps are adjusted along the roofline to maintain a straight line of sight. This ensures that your Seamless Gutters add a beautiful, clean, and classic look to your home. All gutter ends are pinch nailed so that they don’t fall away from house or come loose. We provide a greater pitch to our downspouts to allow a more efficient drainage system.
We take care to make sure we respect the homeowner’s delicate plants and landscaping. We also make sure no unsightly debris is left behind. Lastly, we perform a white glove inspection, checking all gutters and downspouts for any dirt or smudges that may have occurred during the installation process.
And finally, no job is complete until we take one final walk through with the homeowner to make sure you-our customers are 110% satisfied with your beautiful new rain gutters!
