There are a few things to consider when purchasing gutters for your home or business. The price will be reflective of the material thickness, size, shape and add-on features. The value of an experienced seamless gutter installer cannot be overlooked. Gutters are installed wrong good percentage of the time and the results of this can cause major damage to your home. Most companies will not accept responsibility for the damage, so be sure to have it in writing that any damage is the responsibility of the gutter contractor. Let Campbell Exteriors be your trusted local seamless gutter installers.
Gutter Thickness is rated differently, depending on the material used. A thicker gutter system will be sturdier, more durable, and more expensive. Aluminum systems range from .019 to .032 inches in thickness.
Seamless Gutter systems are most popular but require professional installers. In a seamless system, an installer will use a special machine on-site to form long stretches of gutter that will run the length of the roof-line without a seam. No seams means less places for gutters to leak and malfunction.
Gutter Size is an important factor in choosing gutters. A homeowner will have to choose from gutter size (the measurement of the top opening), downspout size (length and width or diameter), and thickness. The most common gutter sizes are 5 inches and 6 inches. Downspouts are commonly 2 x 3 inches and 3 x 4 inches in size.
