Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Gutters

The industry standard

How common are seamless gutters in the USA?
85% of all guttering installed throughout the nation is seamless. It is the industry standard across the USA! 

What seamless gutters do

What is the primary purpose of gutters?
Pooling rainwater that collects around building foundations can cause structural damage over time. Gutter and downspout systems prevent rain from pouring down the sides of your house or business. 

Maintenance

How often should gutters be cleaned?
You should have your gutters cleaned and checked at least once a year. If your home is surrounded by trees, you may want to clean out your gutters twice a year. 

Gutter clogging

How do gutters get clogged?
Tree debris such as leaves, acorns, tree bark, pine cones, tree flowers, seedlings and branches are a primary cause of gutter clogging. Other causes include roof dirt, bird dirt, animal dirt, and even dead birds. Let's not forget toys such as GI Joes, cars, balls and anything else the neighborhood kids manage to get up there! This is what we call "Schlumpka".

What happens when gutters get clogged?
Water can wash over clogged gutters and drip down the sides of your house. Over time this can cause siding damage, discoloration, staining, and window and door damage.

How much does a new gutter system cost?
The cost of a new gutter system will vary depending on a number of factors:

  • The type of gutter material used - aluminum, steel, or copper
  • Total linear footage
  • The amount and length of down spouts
  • The number of mitered corners
  • Fascia board replacement (if necessary)
  • Pitch and height of your roof
