Gutter, or also called eavestrough, is a shallow trough fixed beneath the edge of a roof. It is a feature of our homes that is vital for the health of our houses. They divert the water away from your home, prevents erosion, protect your landscaping, and prevent your basement from flooding.
Our services are not limited to installing and maintaining gutter, but also the features that come along with it.
Popular Types of Eavestrough at Peaks & Valleys Construction:
Four types of Eavestrough is popular with our clients:
This type of gutter is economically efficient than buying or using a regular trough. The elements are mostly aluminum, copper, painted steel, or zinc. These seamless gutters are a roll-formed off the truck-mounted machine and are being custom-made to fit your home. The term seamless doesn’t mean it doesn’t have seams. It has seams, but it has lesser seams. Lesser seams mean it is less likely to corrode.
Seamless gutters come in 6-inch and 5-inch design. The difference is not an inch, but the 6-inch is 15 inches wide sheet while a 5-inch is 11 inches wide sheet.
Aluminum is a lightweight material commonly used for gutters. They are durable and long-lasting, plus they resist thinning over time. We cannot deny that aluminum could rust, but it will take some time to do so. Water exposure can lead to rust and water accumulation in the roof, but this material is best in the market for an eavestrough.
There are different styles of gutter for residential purposes. It could be a fascia, half-round, and K-style gutter. But, we highly recommend a K-style gutter because it holds more volume of water than the other types of drain. The k-style design is known to be stronger than most and is less likely to bend or protrude even with impacted force.
There are two types of k-style gutter, and they are the 6-inch and the 5-inch. A 6-inch could carry more volume of water, especially if you have a metal roof. If there is too much volume of water, it will fly right off the edge with a 5-inch gutter.
With an angled trough, it is more likely to rust than a half-round gutter. An angled gutter is harder to clean, and water builds to the edge and could lead the metal to corrode.
Aluminum Gutter Guards
Most people would say that an aluminum gutter guard is a bad investment. We at Peaks & Valleys Construction see it differently. Correctly installing the aluminum gutter guard maximizes its use in keeping the leaves and branches to clog the drain and the downspout. Even if you are a non-believer of the aluminum gutter guards, you might change your mind if you get a chance of having an eavestrough services from Peaks & Valleys Construction.
