The standard gutter, more than enough to handle basic drainage needs.
Heavy duty gutters for a large roof that needs a lot of drainage.
Add a touch of elegance to your forever home with copper gutters. Copper can last around 50 years, or even up to a century if well cared for, as compared to the standard 20 years.
Your gutters collect the rain that falls on your roof, and guide it safely away from your roof, siding, and foundation. They are a small but essential component for a safe and healthy home.
Damaged gutters can cause:
• Foundation cracking
• Basement flooding
• Dry rot on the home's exterior
• Mold damage
• Siding damage
• And more
Standard gutters will last around 20 years; if you're replacing your roof due to age, it's probably a good time to look at replacing the gutters with it.
Copper gutters, on the other hand, last around 50 years or longer. It's less likely that you'll need to replace these unless they've been damaged.
For most homeowners, a residential gutter system is the best option. You may also choose to add gutter guards or screens to improve the lifespan of your new gutters.
For classical restorations, or for your forever home, copper may be a better option. Copper gutters add a bit of elegance to the home, functioning as decor while still fulfilling its practical purpose. Furthermore, they last more than twice as long as the standard gutter system.
If you're looking to replace gutters on a commercial building, rather than a home, talk to your Horner's contractor about commercial gutter systems to handle the larger drainage needs that often come with these buildings.
Most gutters are open gutter style, meaning they'll collect all sorts of random debris over time. Leaves, acorns, pine needles, these things can clog your gutter and also are a fire hazard in dry weather.
But don't worry! If you really dislike cleaning the gutters, gutter screens and gutter guards are one option to prevent the accumulation of debris in the first place. With less maintenance and a longer lifespan, they are a worthwhile investment to look into if you're planning to replace your gutters.
Technically yes, but we don't recommend it. It can shorten the lifespan of your gutters, and potentially void some warranties that came with it. On top of that, the paint is very likely to chip away over time.
If you're concerned about your new gutters matching your home's aesthetic, we highly recommend discussing it with your Horner's contractor first!
