Gutters and Downpouts
A gutter system, when properly designed and installed, will:
- Prevent leaks in basements & crawlspaces
- Avert damages to siding, landscape and foundation
- Help subdue erosion
- Keep doorways and windows dry during the rainy season
By far the most popular gutter profile is the “K-style” (or “ogee”) gutter, which is used on 95% of homes today, though other styles include “box” and “half-round”. K-style gutters are designed to mimic the look of crown molding on an interior ceiling, and are also self-reinforcing (stronger) due to the multiple bends in the face of the gutter. We recommend using K-style gutters for your home.
Downspouts are the vertical piece of aluminum that funnel water from the gutter to the ground. They come in a rectangular form, and are either 2″x3″ or 3″x4″ in size, depending on the length and size of the gutter used.
Our seamless aluminum gutters and are extruded by a machine using Alsco Gutter-Tuff gutter coil on site during the day of installation, to provide a custom fit for your home. The process of removing the existing gutters, and installing your new gutters usually takes less than a day, with minimal disturbance to your schedule and landscaping.
