If you are planning new home construction or live in a home that needs gutter replacement you’re probably asking yourself where to begin. Gutters may seem inconspicuous and simple but finding the right gutters for your home is very important for the maintenance and aesthetic look of the home. With poorly installed and cheap gutters you run the risk of sever water damage and costly repairs that can be avoided by shopping smart when it comes to gutters.
Here are a few tips to get you headed in the right direction:
Pay for Quality – Some things in life can be compromised. Gutters aren’t in that category. Look for gutters that have a good reputation and are made from durable materials including aluminum, zinc and copper. Going cheap with gutters is a very risky move that could lead to ceiling leaks, soaked siding and flooded basements.
Match the Home – When shopping for new gutters keep in mind the look of your home. You want gutters that will either seamlessly fit in and be almost invisible or provide a decorative contrast. Also be aware of the different shapes of gutters including half-round, K-style and box style since you will want a gutter system that fits with the roof and exterior look of your home.
Find a Qualified Installer – Unless you have experience installing gutters you will certainly want to contact a professional installation company. Gutters aren’t DIY handyman projects and if you skimp on the installation costs you may be experiencing water problems real quick. Look for installers that have legitimate reviews and testimonials so you know you are getting a qualified contractor.
