TOP 5 GUTTER TIPS: By Ty Lewis, Owner of Easy Estimates LLC.

Having gutters installed on your home is not as easy as having gutters installed on your home. They are formed and installed quickly but can be detrimental if certain items are not accounted for during installation and selection of materials.
Choosing the correct size of gutter is the first step. Options are typically 5-inch, 6-inch, or 7-inch size. Most often, 6-inch aluminum gutters are installed on standard shingle roofs with slopes 6/12 or less.
Roofs with metal or tile installed will often consider a 7-inch gutter. This allows the faster flowing water being discharged off of the roof to be properly captured and disposed of at the nearest downspout.
The gutter contractor is to form the seamless aluminum gutters on site and when installing on the eave of the home, they are to install the gutter with a slight downward slope to the nearest downspout. If the gutters are not slopped properly, you can experience water retention and fascia board rot on the eave of your roof over time.
Once the gutters and downspouts have been installed properly, it is important to have the gutter contractor install concrete slabs under each downspout that is in the grass, soil, or other non-erosion resistant surfaces. This will prevent erosion around the downspout and around the foundation of your home.
Top 5 things to consider when having gutters installed on your home:
■ The size of gutter is proportionate to the roof material and slope of your roof
■ Seamless gutters made to fit your house on site
■ Appropriately placed drains and downspouts with concrete slabs under them
■ Stainless steel brackets & screws used to secure the gutters to your home
■ Gutters are pitched to allow flow of water towards the downspouts
Receiving a couple of estimates from reputable companies is a great way to compare pricing, and wait times, and ensure you are getting the best value for your investment.
