There's 3 main options when shopping for new gutters. Some gutter services may offer half round or larger commercial size gutters but that is much less common.
The smaller of the k style rain gutters. While still common, most people decide to upgrade to the larger 6k style gutters during the installation of a new gutter system.
Our favorite type of new gutters to install when replacing existing gutters in Vancouver, WA and Clark County on an installation project because they are the largest you find on a residential home and are the least likely to be clogged. They allow for a larger downspout opening making it difficult to back up. 6k style gutters are large so they stand out and appear as bold pieces of trim giving a better look to a home for a quick update.
Most commonly found on new construction because it eliminates the need for drip metal flashing on a new roof because of a lip on the new gutters. While they are still good quality, they do not provide enough flashing under the roofing and can cause issues from wicking. Call us for your next project with gutter installation services needed.
We offer a wide variety of color options from several manufacturers. Most people choose white, sometimes black, and rarely copper penny. Real copper gutters in Vancouver, WA and Clark County are rare and extremely expensive but still an option for those who ask. We may have a color that already matches the color of the trim for your home. It's better to have powder-coated gutters because the finish will last longer than traditional exterior paint. Let us know you'd like to see some color swatches during your free estimate.
Gutter guards or covers come in many different shapes and sizes. Best installed when trees cover the home to prevent them from filling up with moss and debris. Gutter covers aren't perfect and will still require standard maintenance including cleaning which will still require you to hire a quality professional. Gutter covers with small holes often do not work on a high slope roof because the steep roofing causes the water to speed up and shoot over the gutters, downspouts, and cover.
We recommend homeowners stay away from name brand companies that offer installation of gutter covers or filters in Vancouver, WA or Portland, Oregon because they often cost more than 3 times the amount and do not function as promised. These are high pressure sales and marketing companies hoping you trust their sales pitch but we think their theories "don't hold any water."
Another failed method to prevent gutters from filling up is to use mesh or a screen. These materials are the least effective as they are the perfect breeding grounds for moss. This causes more work than if you had never installed the covers in the first place.
When replacing the downspouts on your home in Vancouver, WA and Clark County there are two main sizes to consider. The most common being 2x3 downspouts but most people are upgrading to the larger 3x4 downspouts because they are less likely to clog.
These are boxes meant to be your last line of defense before the water enters the underground pipe that leads to the street, storm drain, or French drain. These can be very difficult to unclog and will require you to rent equipment or hire a quality professional to unclog the drain properly. Cleaning the filter is easy because it's at ground level. Less of a project than cleaning with a ladder.
On any street, Vancouver, WA has different types of rain gutters installed. The most common and best looking are seamless gutters. These are made on site with a coil of aluminum and a gutter machine. Each piece is made to custom size. If you're looking for a contractor than can offer seamless gutters, Vancouver, WA residents won't have to look far.
Sometimes after a gutter cleaning you can still find small leaks that we can repair with gutter sealant. A gutter repair can also consist of replacing one section of gutter by removing the damaged piece at the miter. As long as the size and the type of materials match it should be an easy replacement. Aluminum cannot be attached to a different steel gutter. Because steel is less common today, we recommend you replace those gutters with new gutters rather than repair. Most of the time it makes more sense to replace your gutters rather than repair but still keep the existing downspouts. Let us know what is happening with your gutters in Vancouver, WA, Clark County, Battle Ground, and Portland.
