Proper maintenance is integral to the health and longevity of your roofing system. Keeping your gutters working at top performance can help with keeping repairs at bay. If the gutters fail, then water will overflow or build up creating damage to walls, siding, foundation, and roofing materials. Water must be able to flow through the gutter system, to the downspouts, and away from the home in an effective and efficient manner.

When it is time to replace or upgrade your gutter system, there are various options to choose from. Here is a breakdown of the types of gutters we install. (Why having gutter guards is important?)
Seamless gutters are one long continuous piece of material, custom cut on site. The material is typically aluminum, copper, painted steel, or zinc. This system is supreme as there are limited joints, allowing the water to flow freely. Considering this type of system does not have joints, the chance of leakage is minimal. Debris buildup is also minimal. These characteristics make this a wise choice!
This is a popular choice for Dallas-Fort Worth residents. They are shaped as a “k,” hence the name. The flat area of the gutter is what is nailed into the fascia board and, therefore, no brackets are needed. An attractive quality of this gutter is the amount of water it can hold. Their k-style offers an attractive, stylish appearance to the modern home.
This type of gutter resembles a tube that has been cut in half. The name “half-round” is taken from the U-shape that compliments older, historical homes. Half-round gutters have a smooth interior, offering the water to flow freely. The chance of leaf, pine needles, or debris buildup is minimal. The water can push the clutter through the system with ease. Unfortunately, it can get cluttered near the downspouts. So, determine to inspect the gutters regularly to keep them clean and clear.
Box Style Gutters
A rain gutter cut in a rectangular shape is commonly called a “box-style gutter.” A great advantage to this style of gutter is the fastening to the foundation of the home. The gutter will not warp or bend as it moves with the aging, settling home. This style is typically seen in older homes however, they are becoming popular due to the sharp lines they offer.
Regardless of the type of gutter you choose for your home, it is wise to consider gutter guards. These guards are made of mesh or thin screens limiting the number of leaves, branches, or large debris collected in the system. Small particles can still make their way through however, the water can easily wash them away. Installing gutter guards is an excellent way to extend the life of your gutters.
