Your gutter system guides rainwater away from your house to prevent it from settling around the foundation and seeping into your interior walls and basement. A properly functioning gutter system is an important investment for your home, but one that’s easy to overlook. Clogged gutters can lead to costly water damage to your soffits, fascia, and exterior paint. It can also cause damage to landscaping and even corrosion and erosion of your home’s foundation.
Unlike traditional gutters, seamless or “continuous” gutter systems are custom built on-site in precise lengths for your home. The lack of seams means no chance of leaks.
Another advantage of seamless gutter systems is their strength. Rain, snow, and ice place much strain on your gutter system, causing seams to flex and eventually leak.
At Exterior Solutions, we use only the most up-to-date installation methods and materials. This includes using top-of-the-line gutter hangers with a pull strength of 255 pounds. These gutter hangers are mounted using zinc-coated screws to avoid corrosion. All our endcaps and miters are sealed with self-leveling gutter sealant, which has excellent bonding properties and flattens as it dries to help prevent damming on inside and outside corner miters.
We attach downspouts to the gutter system using an aluminum drop-in cup. These cups allow water to flow while also helping to support the downspout and gutter if the spout ever comes loose from the house. This prevents the swinging of the spout from ripping the gutter run itself.
Finally, all the screws used in miters, downspouts, elbows, and the straps that attach the gutter system to the house are color-matched to the system and installed in proper locations to prevent flow leaks from the spouts and to enhance the aesthetic effect.
The gutters we install will provide years of faithful service and prevent costly repairs to your home’s foundation. Guards will protect your home from debris such as leaves, twigs, and even shingle grit and help prevent damage to siding and other exterior features on your home.
