When a homeowner notices loose, damaged leaking gutters, it is usually time to replace those old gutters with new gutters. Purchasing new gutters can be made easier by considering the following:
What are the requirements of your home?
- What's the style of your home?
- How many feet of gutter will your home require?
- What is the slope of your roof?
- Do you have large trees near your home, or overhanging your roof?
- What size gutters will your home require?
- What color will look best on your home?
- How many levels do you have on your home?
- Do you have dormers or gables?
- How many areas would be considered “valleys” where greater volumes of water would run off?
- Does the style of your home require copper or other specialty gutters?
Can and should you install gutters yourself or have it done by a professional?
- Sectional vinyl or aluminum gutters can be installed by a do-it-yourselfer. However, we emphasize that climbing ladders to install them is dangerour work.
- Seamless gutters must be manufactured on site and installed by a professional.
