Q: What’s the turnaround time for a project?
A: "It depends on the type of project. Appointments can usually be set up in one business day. A regular gutter job on a house can typically be completed within a day or two."
Q: What kinds of gutters can I choose from?
A: "Aluminum and steel are the most popular, and we have many standard and custom styles to choose from on our website."
Q: Is aluminum or steel better for gutters?
A: "Both are good products. Steel is a harder material and is more durable, while aluminum is softer and won’t rust. Both materials have the same paint system, which has a warranty for approximately 20 percent fade over 20 years."
Q: What colors are available?
A: "We have more than 20 standard colors available, and you can always request a custom color. We have all the materials to match most existing residential gutter systems."
Q: What’s the general life span of gutter?
A: "A painted gutter has a 20-year warranty on fade. Many last for 40 years, but that’s not guaranteed. Unpainted gutters (bonderized or galvanized) can be expected to last 15 to 25 years. Copper and stainless steel systems should last a lifetime."
Q: How often do I need to maintain my gutters?
A: "Gutters should be checked yearly, and under certain trees, you should get leaf protection to save money on regular gutter cleaning or other problems."
Q: Do you do repairs and maintenance?
A: "Yes. We have a variety of maintenance plans available."
