Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We offer two types of gutters, in High-Quality Aluminium or High-Grade Copper gutters. We offer K-Style Seamless Gutters or Seamless 5in & 6in Half Round Style.

We recommend 3×4” downspouts because they have twice that inside area of 2×3” which makes them much less likely to clog. 3×4” downspouts also can handle twice the water volume which is very helpful in the heavy rains that we have in the summer. Whenever we install our Gorilla Guard gutter covers, we require 3×4” downspouts for these reasons.

We recommend that rain gutter installation should drop from the highest point to the lowest point at a rate of a quarter inch every 10’. This ensures that water fully drains out of the gutters after each rain and helps keep small bits of debris from lingering in the gutters.

Yes, we do. We do not sell any particular brand of rain barrels but we are more than happy to connect your rain gutter system to any rain barrel that you choose.

There are two primary types of hangers in use today. The first type of hangers are called “spike and ferrule” hangers and involve a large nail or spike that is driven through the front of the gutter and into the house. While very strong, these hangers often lead to fascia rot and are also very hard to remove to adjust the gutter in any way.

The second type of hangers are called “hidden hangers.” These are brackets that clip into the gutter and then are attached to the house with a screw. The advantage of these hangers is that they can be easily installed and adjusted. One downside of these hangers is that they are often not as strong as “nail and ferrule” hangers. In order to address this, we use Raytec Hangfast gutter hangers capable of holding and impressive 260lbs per hanger.

On most homes, we recommend that you have one downspout for every 20’ – 30’ of gutter. In some situations, you can drain 40’ of installed rain gutter to one downspout, but we try to avoid this as much as possible in order to maintain optimal performance and functioning of your gutter system.

No. While less expensive, vinyl gutters are also much less durable and often crack and break. We only install rain gutters made from heavy gauge aluminum, copper, and galvalume.

The gutter materials we use have a twenty-year warranty, however, we can’t guarantee the performance of the gutters because they will clog without a gutter cover or gutter guard like Gorilla Guard.

Not at all! In fact, most people find that Gorilla Gutter Guard covers enhance the appearance of the house! Because of its low profile, it is much less visible than similar products. By blending the color with that of the shingle, Gorilla Guard covers can become nearly invisible to the casual observer. Another advantage to having Gorilla Guard covers installed is that it is a capital improvement that increases the value of the home while making the gutters maintenance free.

The Well Hung Gutter…

We get a lot of questions about what we mean by “A Well Hung Gutter” so here are a few pointers. This geographic region is uniquely in need of working gutters because of the trees debris, our squishy clay soil and despite annual cries of drought it generally rains a lot here in North Carolina.

Features of a Well Hung Gutter in the North Carolina Piedmont:

  1. Does not hold water – The rain gutter must be pitched toward the downspouts. This sounds ridiculously obvious but some major building companies specify minimally that no more than 1 inch of water is allowed to stand in the gutter. Standing water means leaky joints, drips, and rotting fascia boards.
  2. Has a full sized downspout outlet and downspouts. – Believe it or not, you can have a nice gutter but if the downspout is too small water will sit in the gutters unable to drain away. Downspouts and outlets should be 3×4 inches.
  3. Heavy duty hangers – If by some freak occurrence your gutters do clog and fill with water weak hangers can break, nails can pull loose and then gutters pull away from the house. Even a little bit of pulling away can mean trouble for your home.
  4. Has enough downspouts to handle the water runoff – The bigger the roof area directing water into your gutters the more downspout capacity you need. Other factors like roof pitch will affect the number of downspouts you need as well.
  5. Quality Miter joints – Whether it’s around a bay window or around the corner of your house, the more metal seams you have the more leaks you will have. “Box-miter” joints found on most homes are leaks just waiting to happen.

Maybe you never wonder about how your gutters are doing. Who wants to stand outside while it’s pouring rain to inspect them and if its not raining, who worries about their gutters? Don’t ignore some tall tale signs, they could lead to costly damage to your home.

Here are some things to look for:

  • Dripping joints and stains
  • Fascia boards with dark streaks or other discoloration
  • Saplings and debris in your gutters
  • Rotted or soft wood around windows and door sills
