Gutters are an incredibly important component of a home’s structure because they keep water draining well away from your house, which protects the foundation, roof, and exterior walls. Correctly installing gutters means taking several elements into account, including the pitch of the roof, the locations of downspouts, the spacing of hangers, and the slope of the gutter. A competent gutter company should have a history of successful gutter installations as well as expertise in working with your type of roof. The company should also be able to guide you to the best type of gutter for your needs and budget.
Gutters come in a variety of materials, reflecting different price points and different pros and cons. Aluminum gutters are very common, and though very cost effective, lower-gauge aluminum gutters are susceptible to dents, such as those from a ladder. Copper gutters are desirable for their elegant look and durability, but their up-front cost may be prohibitive for many homeowners. Galvanized steel gutters were popular years ago, and though they are still manufactured, they have fallen out of favor; this type of gutter is strong and very durable, but it can be prone to rust in spite of its protective coating.
Before replacing your gutters, also consider the state of your roof. If you were thinking of having your roof replaced within the next few years, replacing the gutters and the roof at the same time will avoid potential damage done to gutters during a roof replacement down the road. Or, maybe you already have gutters and instead need maintenance or gutter covers installed. Many Boston gutter installation companies can perform repairs to keep your gutters in top shape, and they can install covers to obviate the drudgery of gutter cleaning.
