95% of our gutter installation projects take no longer than a day, with most taking just ¾ of a working day. However, larger homes could take 2-3 days depending on their size.
It's common for roofing companies to offer gutter installation as part of their collective services. However, gutters are actually more related to your foundation than your roof. At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we offer gutter installation to homeowners because we take a holistic approach to foundation repair and protection. If we provide foundation repair along with basement waterproofing repair, we provide the services that will identify your issue at its root cause.
Absolutely. In fact, the number one cause of foundation damage is inadequate drainage. Gutter installation is crucial for your home's water management system.
The cost of your gutter installation can be affected by many variables, including gutter material, gutter type, house size, number of downspouts, and number of corners. At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we install a complete, covered gutter system called GutterShutter™. This system includes the gutter system itself, gutter protection, and gutter drainage to properly divert water away from your home's foundation, keeping your home and family safe for years to come.
Technically, gutters should be installed at ¼ in. per foot of slope, but it can vary because homes settle. When installing gutters, we take two things into account - aesthetics and functionality. We want your gutter system to both look good and work properly, so we may suggest adding an additional downspout to achieve this.
Our GutterShutter™ system is a six-inch gutter system. The larger the gutter, the more volume of water it can handle - especially in short bursts. Narrower gutters will work fine for light, steady rain. The downside of having a larger gutter is there is a higher chance of catching debris, which is why it's so important to have a full gutter protection system.
Installing gutters can be extremely difficult, especially for two-story homes. We care about your health and safety - because of this, we advise all of our clients to opt for professional gutter installation.
Seamless gutters are simply another attempt at making gutter systems as durable and efficient as possible. And they do tend to last longer and leak less than traditional gutters. However, when considering whether or not seamless gutters are worth it, it's necessary to take into consideration the other features of the gutter system.
