There are many things to consider when installing a new rain gutter system, including: gutter size, spacing of hangers during install, correct pitch, correct placement, minimizing seams, downspout location, materials, and safety protocols.
Selecting Gutter Size
Gutter systems are not one size fits all. Choosing the right size rain gutter system for your home is a crucial first step. A gutter needs to be large enough to drain all rain water away from your home. A gutter system that is too small will become overloaded during heavy rain and put your home at risk of water damage. We determine the correct size of the rain gutter based on the size and pitch of your roof.
Correct Spacing of Hangers
Gutter hangers are used to mount your entire system and attach it to your home. In order for the gutter to remain secure, hangers need to be spaced correctly. Correct spacing is another reason you should always hire a professional. You can have the best quality materials, but if they are not installed correctly your home will be susceptible to water damage. Too much space between hangers causes sagging. This invites water to become stagnant and pool in these areas. Overtime, this added pressure and weight can cause your gutter system to detach from your home. Living in Utah means dealing with snow and ice. That is why we space hangers about every 2 feet apart. Investing in extra hangers will prevent you from having to replace your entire system.
Correct Pitch of Rain Gutter
We understand the important details that can make or break your rain gutter system. The pitch, also known as angle, of your rain gutter plays a crucial role in effective installation. The angle directly affects the rate and speed water flows through the gutters. We make sure the angle is correct in order to best control the flow of water when it rains.
Rain Gutter Placement
Although it may be obvious that a rain gutter should be placed on the edge of your roof, the exact area they are installed needs to be correct. Our technicians know that gutters need to be installed a few inches below your roofline to be the most effective when it comes to preventing water damage to your siding and fascia.
Minimizing Gutter Seams
We offer gutter options with minimal to no seams. Limiting the amount of seams in your rain gutter systems minimizes that amount of weak points that can lead to breaks and leaks. All of our systems are measured and cut based on the specific build of your home. To find out about all of your options and what is best for your home, call and speak with one of our technicians today.
Depending on the size of your home, you may need several downspouts to support your rain gutter system. These need to be placed in strategic areas in order to best protect your home. We take the time to consider how your house is placed and where water would need to be rerouted.
We know how important it is to provide you with the highest quality materials at a price you can afford. Our products differ in price, but never in quality. You can count on a durable and reliable rain gutter system when you choose our technicians to install on your home.
One of the biggest benefits to hiring a professional for rain gutter installation is safety. We follow strict safety protocols and keep you from having to climb up to your roof. We also recommend that you have a gutter guard installed over your entire system. This prevents it from being exposed and filling with debris. It also means the maintenance on cleaning your gutters is reduced significantly.
