Gutter Maintenance Tips #4 – Rusted Gutters

Post Image

Rusted Gutters Rusted Gutters can lead to some serious gutter repairs,such as leaks and pieces falling off, if not taken care of in a timely manner. You should consider aluminum gutters, but if you’re going to stay with the old gutters until your budget allows you will need to get the rust off the old ones. To do this you will have to get off of the rust off, sand them down, and paint them with a good primer and then with a good quality RUST-INHIBITING paint. The reason we suggest aluminum gutters is not only because they will not rust over time, but they are inexpensive, durable, easy to work with, and are available in a wide range of colors. We offer seamless gutters which protects your gutter system from springing a leak. Other types of gutter materials that are out there are galvanized steel gutter systems. But this type of system will start to rust after 20-25 years but are worth it if you live in an area where extreme weather(heavy rains and snow) happen. For most of the area that we cover in Central Virginia, aluminum will do just fine. We do offer galvanized steel gutters. Another materials is copper, this type is the most expensive and can bring a certain aesthetic to a home, they will change color and do not go with any style of home. The last material that we do not offer is vinyl. It is the least expensive but compared to its metal counterparts is not as sturdy or durable. It also tends to become brittle and break in the winter time. This could end up costing you more in the long run due to repairs.

5 Reasons Aluminum Gutter Guards Are A Better Product Gutter leaf guards should be an investment on your home.  They not only help you save money & time by cutting down on the amount of time and money you spend on cleaning them out; They protect your home from gutter clogs and can expand the lifetime of your gutters if you take care of them properly. This is why we believe that aluminum gutter guards are better for your home. Just take a minute and think about it. Plastic does not fair well when it comes to extreme weather. It gets too cold your plastic gutter guards will crack, and if it gets too warm your gutter guards will expand. Both will distort your guards and affect how they perform.  If this isn’t enough to help you stray from plastic guards these 5 reasons should help. Durable Aluminum gutter guards are durable. Your gutters the shouldn’t crack or break, yes they can bend but only if there is enough force put upon them. Please DO NOT set your ladder against your gutters. A ladder should be set against your fascia, not your siding or gutters. Prevent damages from occurring and because fascia is flat. All of our gutter guards are made out of strong aluminum and stainless steel. This makes them a bit more indestructible than plastic or vinyl guards. Inexpensive Aluminum gutters guards are not as expensive as you may think. Yes they’ll cost more than plastic but we’re looking at the quality and longevity here. The warranties of the gutter guards we carry have 10 – lifetime warranties that come with them. They also range in price so no matter what your budget is you’ll be getting a quality product. Longer Lifetime As we stated above these gutter guards are meant to last a longer time than plastic gutter guards. All of the gutter guards we carry are made out of aluminum metal. The screen mesh gutter guards have stainless steel for the mesh and an aluminum frame to keep it strong and working great. Harder For Pests To Penetrate Our gutter guards cut down the problem of pests by being completely enclosed. Our screen mesh gutter guards have a filter to not only keep debris out but they keep pests out as well and our curved gutter guards are completely enclosed to ensure no birds or small pests can get in. Color Match This is the best part. Most of the plastic and vinyl gutter guards do not have more than a couple of options. Our gutter guards can be color matched to ensure that you won’t have an eye sore when it comes to owning a gutter guard system. Mastershield offers many colors ( view here ) where as Leafproof offers more than vinyl but less than mastershield.

Copper Gutters

Post Image

We just recently finished a pretty big copper gutters job in Appomattox. Since we don’t get the chance to do too many we jumped on this opportunity to take many pictures. Here are a few photos of the job. Before .   After     The customer was so happy that he wrote us a lovely testimonial(which is featured on the testimonial page)but below is the full testimonial.   Greetings from a dark Beijing! Many thanks for the nice work on the Pugh house and White House. Working with a vendor from China is a bit cumbersome – but your customer service and transparency made the process much easier.  You instilled confidence in me from Day 1 when we met and this is critical as customers decide between different vendors.  Confidence is a form of trust – created by competency and consistency.  You did this by showing me examples of your work, you stressed that you were a gutter company only (focused on a single quality product) and you did what you said you would do (returned calls, showed up for appointments and answered questions).  Your bid was competitive.  The material (as promised) excellent — I examined it closely when I arrived at the Pugh house from China. You are a valuable asset to your field and your company. Importantly you worked well with my agent in the US (Mr Firth) and he is a tough cookie!  He was pleased with your work and your attitude. In the end – your work is exemplary.  I smiled broadly when I came around the corner and saw it shining in the sun! Many thanks and kind regards from Beijing, Dan” Connect with us for daily inspiration, updates and information: Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram
