How to you exactly select the best gutter replacement profile for your home?
With over 10 different profiles and products, picking out the appropriate gutter profile for your home has never been more confusing in a sense. Gutters come in a variety of profiles, aluminum grade thickness, and material composite
Types of Gutters
Fascia Gutter: Fascia gutter is a modern gutter that is offered in a variety of profiles and sizes ranging between 5″ and 6″ which are the two most common fascia gutter sizes. The downside of fascia gutter is its lack of durability – known to dent and sag easily with minimal weight load. For that reason we only recommend fascia gutters
5″ K Style Crown Mold: The 5″ K Style Gutter in Crown mold profile is a very durable product that comes in its one standard profile. The benefit of the 5″ crown mold is its durability and aluminum grade – the width of the aluminum sheet is less then of the fascia gutter which gives it that extra edge of strength over the fascia gutter. ArmourGrade Seamless Eavestroughing Services offers this gutter with a 15 year warranty so you can have complete peace of mind when going with this gutter profile.
Half Round Gutters: Half round gutters come in 3 different material options: Aluminum, Steal, and the most expensive option of all – Copper. Half round gutters size up at 6″ in width and are held up with brackets which provides a luxurious curb appeal to your home. Copper Half Round Gutters are offered in both 16 ounce and 20 ounce depending on how fancy you want to get with your roof gutter system. Aluminum Half Round Gutters last upwards of 30 years while Copper Half round gutters will last 50 + years.
Gutter Guards: One option to consider as an add-on would be the alu-rex leaf guards. Leaf guards are installed either on existing gutters or new gutters. With new gutters, the leaf guards act as a continues gutter hanger providing a higher weight load capacity on the gutters which increases the durability of your gutters specifically if you have an aluminum or metal roof and would like to protect your gutters from ripping off during snow and ice damp melts. Leaf guards also prevent any debris from entering your gutters which helps reduce the maintenance required to keep your gutters clean.
