Are your gutters “seamless”?
Gutters are considered “seamless” when they are installed in a continuous manner from corner to corner. Seams should only occur at the corners. At American Choice Exteriors all of our gutter replacements are seamless.
What color guttters are there to choose from?
You name the gutter color – we got it! In all all seriousness, gutters come in a wide variety of colors and we have over 16 seamless aluminum gutters to choose from.
Most of the time the gutter colors are simple; either white or eggshell. However, black gutters are very popular too. Just remember, if you live in a neighborhood with an HOA, color changes have to be cleared according to most HOA by-laws.
What sizes do gutters come in?
The seamless sections of gutters are custom made in two sizes:
- 5 inch gutters
- 6 inch gutters
The downspouts are subsequently matched, with 2×3 inch downspouts connecting to the 5 inch gutters and 3×4 inch downspouts connecting to the 6 inch downspouts.
We always recommend the bigger gutters – 6 inches – because they come with the larger downspouts, thus they can displace more water and do it faster during storms! In fact, the extra inch on the downspouts leads to 400% more water volume, thus preventing gutter issues!
Do I need gutter guards?
We are biased, but we always say YES to gutter guards, and here is why:
- Gutter guards that work are worth every penny
- Gutter Guards are self-cleaning meaning you don’t have to clean them
- You can do away with cleaning but also having to clean the cheap gutter guards others will install
- They’re durable
- They come with a lifetime no-clog warranty!
