When it is time to put gutters on your home or business there are a few things to consider. Your price range will be reflective of the material thickness, size, shape and add-on features of the gutters. The value you receive from an experienced seamless gutter installation crew is unmatched. Gutters are commonly installed incorrectly and the results can cause major damage to your home. Most companies will not accept responsibility damage, so be sure to have it in writing that any damage, flooding, or gutter overload is the responsibility of the gutter contractor. Let Giuffre Contracting 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, installers use a specifioc machine on-site to form the 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 another factor to consider when 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 overall 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.
