Why are high-quality gutters important?
What's the difference?
6-inch gutters have a larger cross-sectional area compared to standard 5-inch gutters. This increased capacity allows them to handle a higher volume of water at 2 gallons/linear ft, making them more effective in areas with heavy rainfall or large roof areas. This reduces the likelihood of overflow during heavy rain or clogging caused by debris. It also helps to prevent water from pooling on the roof or overflowing and causing water damage to the home's exterior.
5-Inch or less
5-inch gutters have a smaller water capacity compared to larger gutter sizes, such as 6-inch gutters. In areas with heavy rainfall or large roof areas, 5-inch gutters may not be able to handle the volume of water efficiently, leading to overflow and potential water damage. Due to their narrower width, 5-inch gutters are more prone to clogging from leaves, twigs, and debris. Regular maintenance and cleaning are crucial to preventing clogs and ensuring proper water flow.
Make your gutters maintenance-free
Homeowners choose our gutter protection for one simple reason — it works. We wouldn’t have installed so much of it if it didn’t. In fact, our gutter guard systems have protected over 100 million feet of gutter over the last decade — longer than a gutter stretching from LA to NY and back three times. The patented design keeps leaves and other debris out of gutters while allowing water to drain freely. All it takes is a normal breeze to lift debris away.
Our gutters are not simply painted; they are expertly finished with a water-resistant acrylic emulsion in a two-step process that incorporates a primer and a topcoat, ensuring maximum curb appeal for a lifetime.
