Gutters and Gutter Guards

Your homes gutters protect the foundation of your home, prevent erosion, protect your landscaping, and prevent basement flooding. They will prevent staining to the exterior of your home, mitigate paint damage, and stop mold and mildew growth.

The most common problem we see with gutters is clogging. When gutters become clogged, they cannot drain properly and can start to overflow during rainstorms. When the water cannot pass through properly, it can start to cause problems with your foundation, as well as your fascia.

There are many different gutter styles and types, including galvanized, commercial, half-round, K-style, and others. When you picture gutters on a house, you are probably visualizing K-style because it is the single most popular variation installed. The typical size of K-style gutters installed is 5-inch or 6-inch. 

When making a choice on size it will depend on the amount of water the gutters need to handle. The square footage of your roof will determine whether you need to go with 5-inch or 6-inch. Another key factor will be the pitch of your roof. 6-inch gutters can handle almost 50% more water than 5-inch gutters. They are installed with bigger 3”x4” downspouts for better water management. 6-inch gutters are less likely to get clogged up because they can handle more water flow, and they come with a bigger outlet. 

Gutters are for water not debris, so it is important to have gutter guards installed. We recommend Gutter Rx. Gutter Rx is a technically advanced product, built to solve many gutter problems in one go. The surface of Gutter Rx is made up of hundreds of small holes that act as an opening into the gutter. Depending on the location on the surface, the holes vary in order to drain the most rainwater possible. The wavy surface also slows the forward progression of water. Gutter Rx installs within the gutter. If it is installed flat, it is completely invisible. If it is installed at an angle, you may see a portion of the gutter guard depending on how high your gutters are. 

Since it is virtually invisible, Gutter Rx is available in white and dark bronze which will work on any application. Gutter Rx is made of heavy gauge aluminum and includes a 20 year no clog manufacturer’s warranty. Unlike plastic, aluminum will not warp or distort over time, so it will provide better overall performance and maintain its attractive appearance.
