What is the primary job of a ‘Leaf Guard System’?
The primary job of a Leaf Guard System is to keep debris out of your gutters and keep the water free flowing. There are a variety of names, some brand specific such as Gutter Guard™ and Gutter Helmet™ that are used when talking about these products. However, don’t be misled by names or marketing slogans. Alcoa’s Leaf Relief™ product gives you durable solid aluminum construction and fits most existing gutters and gutter systems. Installation of your home’s leaf protection system is quick and the benefits are immediate.
What is the difference between seamless gutters and what I can buy at Home Depot?
Seamless gutters are custom fitted, one-piece gutters manufactured at your home. They are far superior to sectional plastic or aluminum gutters bought at home improvement stores. Seamless gutters do not have in-line seams, which always fail. Seamless gutters are made of aluminum or copper that will last for years. Our material is also made of .032 inch aluminum, which is far thicker than anything that these stores sell.
Do seamless gutters cause ice dams?
No, seamless gutters do not cause ice dams. Ice dams are caused by heat loss & weather patterns. Many homes without gutters encounter ice dam problems worse than homes with gutters. See our section on Ice Dams for further information.
Do seamless gutters help with wet basements?
Yes. They direct all the rainwater from the roof away from your foundation reducing the amount of water that may collect around & leak into the foundation.
How are seamless gutters supported?
Gutters are supported by two key components: the screw & the hanger. This combination makes up the most important component that insures the longevity of your gutter system. Because they’re a blind item to the buyer, most overlook its importance. A vast majority of gutter companies use inferior hangers and screws. Even more appalling is the amount of companies who use drywall screws, or deck screws to secure their gutters. Superior Gutters uses Hangfast hangers. This combination is the secret to our warranty. Ask to see a comparison – customers can compare and see the difference for themselves.
How do I maintain my seamless rain gutter system?
The only maintenance required is cleaning. Rain gutters should be properly cleaned & flushed regularly (twice per year for the majority of homes). This cleaning maintenance allows rain gutters to flow properly without obstruction.
How long will the project take, and do I have to be there?
Most homes only take a few hours on average, and it is the customer’s choice if they can be there or not.
Will gutters detract from the appearance of my home?
