Rain gutters are troughs placed at the bottom edge of your roof to collect and channel rain run-off. This will protect your foundation from becoming flooded by the water that would otherwise pool on the ground beneath the roof, potentially causing foundation problems. Gutters also protect windows and walls from excessive moisture pooling.

Most residential rain gutters come in two sizes, 5 inches or 6 inches, and are typically made of aluminum but also available in galvalume or copper.

One foot of 5-inch K-Style gutter holds 1.2 gallons of water. One foot of 6-inch K-Style gutter holds 2.0 gallons of water. The most popular residential gutter type is seamless aluminum in either 5″ or 6″ depending on the size of the home.
Aluminum gutters come in several different colors and are enamel baked at the factory to give long-lasting quality and durability. Another benefit of aluminum is that the metal is lighter and won’t rust. This means less weight on your home’s fascia and a much longer-lasting investment.
