Ready Roofing’s Skilled Team Provides Professional Service to Install or Renew Your Gutter System
Ready Roofing custom makes 5” and 6” seamless gutters on site of high-quality national brand aluminum which will protect your investment and increase the value and appearance of your property.
The principal reason aluminum is the material of choice for most seamless applications is that it is the most cost effective will not rust and comes in a wide variety of colors. We have over 20 colors to choose from.
How can you tell if your gutters need repaired or replaced?
Aside from doing some water flow math, here’s what we look for:
• Leaks in corners, staining, or water overflows form water, or rust in steel gutters.
• Gutters should hang level, so if your gutters are turning down more towards the front, water can spill over and cause damage.
• Galvanized steel gutters will rust at some point. Then, they’ll start sagging if they aren’t secured well.
• Joints can also pull apart over time, causing leaking.
• If it’s raining, you can check for overflow issues. If water is coming from behind the gutter board, we may also need to look at your roof and other potential causes.
Gutter Replacement and Installation
5 Inch Gutters
The most common gutter found on residential homes is 5 inch K style gutter. The most common downspout used with 5 inch seamless gutter is a 2″x3″ rectangle downspout. Sometimes a 3″x4″ downspout can be installed to accommodate for higher volumes of water.
Through the years most of the advances in technology have been in the way the 5 inch gutters are attached to the home. Most new and retro installations are completed using hidden screw hangers. Gone are the large 5 inch gutters spikes or nails that work there way loose over time. We finish the 5 inch gutter installation with color matched stainless steel screws to prevent rust streaks ensuring that you new gutters will look great for many years.
6 Inch Gutters
6 inch K style gutter is mostly common on large homes and medium to mid-sized commercial buildings. The capacity of a one foot section of 6 inch gutter is 2 gallons of water; almost twice that of a 5″ gutter.
The most common size of downspout installed with 6 inch gutters is 3″x4″ rectangle although a 4″x5″ rectangle can be installed. Our 6 inch gutters are made with heavy duty .032 gage aluminum gutter coil. As with our 5″ gutter installation we use only the best material available including premium screw hangers.
Our seamless gutters are made directly onsite and can give your home a better look. Because they are seamless, they won’t have leaks through main stretches while your gutters are clean. This can help protect your home by keeping water away from your foundation, which leads to mold in your basements or crawl spaces. Our gutters come in over 20 colors and can easily match your home. If you need any repair to your current existing gutter system, contact us and we can give you a free estimate.
