FAQs

Which type of gutters are best?

Aluminum gutters are rust-proof, durable, and maintain their color for longer than other gutter options on the market. These gutters are more accessible than other more decorative options like copper, however they come in a wide variety of colors to match your home. Functionally, aluminum gutters can last for many years with proper yearly maintenance.

Are roof gutters necessary?

Not always, but in wet climates like South Louisiana that are prone to flooding they can help to protect your home by moving water away from the foundation. This decreases the rate of erosion in your yard near the foundation of your home. If left untreated, this erosion can slowly cause your foundation to sink, crack, and eventually fail.

How do you clean gutters?

Cleaning gutters is a simple way to ensure that they are functioning properly and should be performed at least once a year for regular maintenance. Our professionals use a pressure washer to remove debris that prevents the flow of water. By preventing clogs, you can also extend the life of your gutters!

What is the difference between an eavestrough and a gutter?

The term gutter can refer to a wide variety of things, including an eavestrough! The terms can be interchangeable, but an eavestrough is what is generally thought of when referring to a gutter. The eavestrough is installed onto the eave of a home to collect rainwater and divert it away from the home. A gutter can also refer to a drainage canal or ditch.

How do I know if my house needs gutters?

If you notice that there’s an eroded trough where the eaves of your house hang over the lawn or garden, you probably need gutters! This erosion can cause all kinds of foundation problems, and by diverting the water away from the foundation you can save yourself from costly repairs.

What are the pros and cons of gutters?

Having gutters installed on your home has plenty of benefits, including the mitigation of erosion near the foundation of your home. This is the single most important reason for gutters! Unfortunately, gutters can affect your exterior aesthetic, get clogged, and break. Improper installation can even lead to water intrusion! With the proper installation and high-quality materials, we recommend installing a gutter system on almost every home to prevent major issues down the road.

Cost Factors

Old Gutter Removal

Removing and disposing of old gutters usually cost $2.00 to $3.00 per linear foot.

Choice of Materials: Our seamless gutters are made from aluminum. Copper is another option for a long-lasting gutter but is the costliest material used for gutters.

Upper-Story Installation: Installing gutters above the first level is more difficult, so the cost is typically $1.00 to $1.50 more per linear foot.

Number of Downspouts: Installing downspouts is the most time-consuming aspect of the work, so homes with more corners will take more labor to install.

Premium Colors: Deep, rich colors can cost more than lighter colors for aluminum gutters.

Fascia Repair: Rotted fascia must be replaced before new gutters are installed and will be an additional charge for labor and material.

Extras: Additional costs include adding gutter guards, splash blocks, rain diverters and downspout extenders.
