Roofing World Gutter Fundamentals:

Materials:

Wood, vinyl, aluminum, steel and copper are some of the materials that gutters and down-spouts are made
of. Wood is the least popular because of it’s high maintenance. Vinyl is great and can be installed by
Roofing World. Aluminum gutters are the most common. Primary aluminum is the thickest and most
consistent kind. Avoid secondary aluminum, a recycled product that's often plagued by inconsistent
thickness. Metal gutters are made in sheet metal shops and require
Roofing World Gutter Specialists to
install them.

Shapes & Sizes: U- and K-Shape:

Gutters
come in several sizes and shapes. The most common are the U shape and the K shape. The more
important choice is the sizing of the gutters and the downspout.
Roofing World offers these choices
to the Homeowner ,including 2x3-in or 3x4-in. rectangular style, as well as 3- or 4-in. round pipes.
Metal
gutters
are also available in different sizes. The most popular is 5" gutter which is typically paired with a
downspout. 4" gutter is more popular in areas where there is less rainfall. Occasionally you will see 6" gutter
in markets where rainfall is particularly heavy.

Color:
So as to allow you to match house color or trim, there are more than 25 different colors to choose from
when you have your sectional aluminum and steel gutters professionally installed by
Roofing World. Vinyl
gutters usually only come in brown or white. Copper has a natural color and comes unfinished















                         K-Shape                                                              U-Shape

TYPES OF GUTTERS:

Sectional:

Sectional type gutters are made of vinyl, painted aluminum or pre-painted steel. Gutter sections are joined
together by Snap in place connectors. All sectional systems have end caps, corner pieces and drop outlets
for connecting to down-spouts. One negative they could potentially leak. One positive is that they can be
installed by
Roofing World, to help prevent that from occuring.

Seamless Gutters:

Seamless gutters are the most popular type today. The biggest selling point is that they don’t have any
seams which could potentially leak. The sections join only at inside and outside corners and at downspout
outlets. Seamless gutters are usually formed from aluminum that has a baked-on finish, but they may be
made from copper or factory-painted steel. They are made with a special machine that's brought to your
home and professionally installed by
Roofing World.

GUTTER PROTECTION SYSTEMS:

A clogged gutter is like having no gutter at all. Gutters should be kept free of leaves and other debris so
they don’t clog and overflow and cause damage to the exterior of your home as well as to the foundation.

To avoid these problems a homeowner must make sure to clean gutters and down-spouts at least twice a
year. Installing a gutter protection system that filters leaves and debris from the water is a great solution for
the homeowner who wants a break from the tedious job of cleaning.

There are several types of
Gutter protection systems such as:

Leaf screens or mesh
These metal coverings fit inside against the back of the gutter and/or across the top. They are like a
strainer and filter out the leaves and debris, allowing only water to run through your gutters and out the
downspout. They still may require a periodic cleaning because debris can build up on top of the screens.

Solid cover with side slots
This type of gutter guard relies on the principle of "water adhesion". The water enters the gutter through
slots or small holes located underneath a lip or on the vertical side. The leaves and other large debris fall
over the edge to the ground. Any tiny debris that remains in the water just flows through the gutter and out
the downspout. The natural surface tension of water cause it to cling to the guard edge and flow into the
slots.
