Here in South Florida we get on average 1.93 inches of rain per month, which does not seem that much. But when it falls on an average-size roof, it adds up to a 3667-gallons pouring over the eaves each month. That much of water can cause an awful lot of damage if your gutters aren't maintained and flowing unrestricted. Most homeowners barely give gutters a second thought until they're hit with the high cost of replacing rotted facers, window sills and undermined foundations.
We offer 3 types of gutters for the homeowner as well to our commercial clients.
Aluminum Gutters Of all the types of gutters to choose from, there is a very good reason why aluminum dominates the gutter market. The metal is corrosion-resistant, lightweight, easy to work with, available in wide range of colors, and less expensive than the other alternatives. Aluminum Gutters can be in sections or installed seamless.
Galvanized Steel Gutters Galvanized gutters are steel gutters coated with a layer of zinc. This type of gutter is strong but is also prone to rust. Proper gutter installation is very important to ensure proper drainage and avoid standing water in your gutters. Leaf protectors will reduce the amount of leaves that will settle in your gutters. It is strongly recommended that you inspect and clean galvanized gutters often to prevent clogging and premature rusting. The addition of gutter guards will help a lot.
Vinyl gutters are a low budget alternative to aluminum rain gutters. There is no argument that plastic gutters are the easiest type of gutters to install but as they say, you get what you pay for. They come in pre-cut sections and are light weight which helps with installation.
