Commonly asked Questions
What's Better, Aluminum or Steel Gutters?
We strongly believe aluminum gutters are the best way to go. they last on average 10 years longer than steel as they are rust-resistant and are less prone to leaks. In fact, we only install steel products if we are doing Lindab Half-Round European Gutters or Customer Faux Copper Gutters.
How do I Know What Size of Eavestroughs I Need?
The vast majority of residential homes only need 5″ eavestroughing. Unless you have a steep pitch (9/12 or higher), a metal roof, or an exceptionably large roof then 6″ is recommended.
Does Leaf Guard Really Work?
Yes, leaf guard does work as long as you choose the right product. That is why we use Alu-Rex for all of our leaf guard installations. Their products are tested, offer a great warranty, and are Canadian made.
Is Drip Edge Really That Important?
Yes, drip edge is important. It helps direct the water coming off of your shingles into the gutter, preventing it from getting behind and possibly rotting your fascia board. We recommend having it installed whenever your shingles are less then an 1″ past your fascia board, or if they are curling.
What is the Cheapest Siding Option
Vinyl Lap siding is the cheapest siding option available. Then followed by James Hardie, Can-Excel, and metal siding options.
