RAIN GUTTER FAQ

Below are some of the most frequently asked question to rain gutters

Why do I need rain gutters?

What are the different rain gutter options?

We install K style gutters that are custom fabricated to your unique roof and house design. There are multiple options from colors, down spout sizes, and accessories to accommodate most situations.

I read there is a 5 inch and 6 inch size option available. How do I know which one I need?

If you have a shingle roof the 5” will work on most homes, but if you have a tile roof you need to install 6” to catch all the water coming off the roof. If you have 5” install on a tile roof the water most likely will shoot over the gutter rather then going into it.

If you have a flat roof or another roofing system not listed, a qualified estimator will be able to tell you what size you will need.
