Residential & Commercial
Rain gutters are long, hollow devices attached to the roof edge or fascia. Their primary purpose is to catch rainwater and direct it away from the foundation. For a home or commercial structure to be complete, it needs a rainwater system to function properly.
These most common profiles are half-round, k-style, and box (which comes in several styles). There are different size options within each profile, and they can be made in most colors to match your home or business.
Let’s look at your options!
Custom Gutter Profiles
Box gutters are common in commercial projects like restaurants. They’re also popular in modern homes because of their unique appearance. We can produce box gutters these styles:
In the competitive world of housing and property markets, unique gutters (box, half-round, etc.) are an amazing way to stand out against the others.
We also refer to half-round gutters as half-moon or circle. They are absolutely beautiful on the right house! Their inside surface is smooth, which allows water to move extremely fast with more resistance towards the outlet. They come in 6″ and 8″ options.
They attach with a bracket (hanger) that’s mounted to the fascia. The half-round gutter sits down inside the brackets and lock in place. There are also external brackets that give a more classic appearance. I typically recommend these for farmhouse-style homes.
K-Style is the most common profile in the United States. They resemble crown molding, a clean aesthetic that most residential homes prefer. They come in 5-9″ sizes.
Residential homes most commonly use 5″ and 6″ k-style gutters.
The 7″ and 8″ sizes are common in commercial projects. They’re also common in residential homes in the south because they see high torrential rainfalls.
The 9″ size is all commercial. Only serious projects with the great watershed and large roof square footages use the 9″ size.
More About Your Gutter Options
Aluminum, steel, zinc, Galvalume, and copper are the most common materials.
For aluminum and steel, we seal them from the inside, while we solder the copper, zinc, and other style metals.
We create outlets so water can escape and flow down through the downspout. Outlets consist of 2×3” or 3×4” oval or rectangular shapes. Some companies punch an “X” in the metal which gives it 4 flanges to attach to.
Gutter Cleaning & Maintenance
Gutters will need seasonal cleaning, especially as fall comes around and the leaves begin to drop. It doesn’t matter which profile, size, or material you have, they will clog in the right environment with leaf debris, sticks, branches, or plant nuts/fruit.
During heavy rains, rainwater can clog your gutters, causing water to pour over the sides. This adds a lot of weight which could damage your system, house, or yourself. Going up a ladder or onto your roof is dangerous and avoidable, especially while it’s raining.
We commonly add leaf guards to gutter systems to prevent natural debris from collecting, blocking the flow of water, or clogging the downspouts.
