Roof Gutter Installation
Gutters may not be the most glamorous feature of a home, but they play an important role in preserving its value over time. By directing rainwater away from your home's foundation, gutters prevent erosion and help maintain the house's structural integrity. Clogged gutters can cause rainwater to back up and seep into your home, leading to intense water damage. Schedule an inspection before the next storm season to ensure your gutters are in good working condition.
Keep dirt out of your gutters
Gutter covers are great for three reasons: They make it easier to keep your gutters clean, they protect your foundation and walls from water damage, and they reduce the risk of pests—especially mosquitoes and rodents, which tend to breed in clogged gutters.
- Low maintenance
- Prevent water damage
- Reduce pests
The basic design is a mesh or perforated screen placed over the top of the gutter. This lets water flow through while blocking leaves, twigs, and other debris. Some also have a solid cover with small holes or slits.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some general guidelines for how long gutters are expected to last based on different materials in average conditions:
- Aluminum: Aluminum gutters are popular because they are lightweight, durable, and rust-resistant. With proper maintenance, they can last for 20-30 years or more.
- Steel: Steel gutters are more prone to rusting than aluminum gutters. Depending on the quality, they can last between 15-20 years.
- Copper: Copper gutters are highly resistant to rust and corrosion. They can last for 50 years or more.
- Vinyl: Vinyl gutters are more affordable but less durable, typically 10-20 years.
