Gutter Installation

Are you adding new gutters and gutter covers to your home this year?

Are you considering new gutter installation for your home? If your gutters are old, warped, and sagging, you need new gutters. If your gutters are often clogged, corroded, and have a hard time draining, you’ll need to look at your gutter installation options. When you’re considering gutter installation, what types of installation are there?

Do It Yourself Gutter Installation

If you pride yourself on your ability to repair your home, you may consider DIY gutter installation. While DIY gutter installation looks simple, it’s actually quite complex. With the DIY approach, you’ll need to

  • measure your home and ensure that you get gutters that are the right size to fit your home.
  • ensure that you have the right size of gutters for your home so that you ensure that all of the water drains off your roof.
  • confirm that you install the gutters at the right pitch so that water drains easily from the gutter into the downspout.
  • make sure that your gutters attach neatly to your home, without the potential for leaks behind the gutters or gaps between the different pieces of gutter material.

If you do it yourself, be sure to pay attention to the details, since they’ll make or break your gutter project. Poor gutter installation can be problematic for your home and your landscaping.

Traditional or Sectional Gutters

Historically, putting together gutters has been a puzzle. With specific lengths of gutter on hand, your gutter installer works to piece them together until they are the right size for your home or building. Sectional gutters have seams where they meet, often at the junction of 20-foot sections. Since they’re an off the shelf product, they’re easy to buy and less expensive than other gutter products. However, each seam is a weak points in your gutter system because they’re prone to warping, sagging, leaks, and corrosion.

Seamless Gutter Installation

Seamless gutters are designed and fabricated specifically for your home. They have no seams or areas of weakness that sag or corrode. Since seamless gutters are not a DIY product, they require professional gutter installation. They are more expensive than other gutter products, but the initial investment pays off since these gutters have fewer problems over time.

Types of Gutters

When you’re organizing for gutter installation, you’ll need to choose from a variety of gutter products. If you’re working with an installer, ask for a professional opinion regarding which gutters will work best for your home and budget. You’ll need to consider:

  • The material you’ll use, such as aluminum, copper, steel, vinyl, and zinc. Each material looks different, costs a different amount, and is more or less easy to clean. For example, aluminum is light and rust-proof and steel is incredibly strong.
  • The gutter style that works for your building. K-style gutters have flat bottoms and backs and look like crown molding. Half-round gutters are rounded and often found on historic buildings.
  • The size of gutter you need. In most areas, a 5-inch gutter has enough capacity and a 6 inch is too large and could lead to ice build-up in the winter. However, if you experience heavy rainfalls, you may need that 6-inch gutter since it has almost twice the capacity of the 5 inch.
  • The number and size of your downspouts. Common downspout sizes are 2×3 and 3×4. The size and number of your downspouts influence the amount of water that actually leaves your drainage system at any given moment.

Do gutter installation right the first time.

Don’t Pay Twice For Your Gutter Installation

Avoid gutter cleaning fees or gutter maintenance emergencies. When you’re planning your gutter installation, do it right the first time.

  • Determine what size or gauge of gutters your home requires so that you have the right capacity for your area.
  • Make sure that your gutters are installed correctly so that there are no leaks in the gutter system.
  • Get gutter covers so that your gutters won’t get clogged with leaves and sticks.
  • Add a gutter heating system so that your gutters flow well even when the winter gets cold.

When you add the right gutter system to your home in the right way, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your home is well-protected.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
