Common Gutter Problems

A gutter system is essential for protecting your foundation from roof runoff during heavy rains.

However, not all gutter systems are the same — many are susceptible to clogging, making them ineffective when you need them the most. If rainwater is not able to flow through the gutter and be diverted away from your home, it will fall to the soil surrounding your foundation, often leading to basement leaks and structural foundation damage.

The expertly designed Gutter Protection System Available for Your Home

If you have trees in your neighborhood, chances are you need gutter guards!  The system that Thrasher Foundation Repair uses is GutterShutter™ system, a clog free, seamless replacement gutter system guaranteed to never pull away from the home. It eliminates the need to climb a dangerous ladder to clean out clogged gutters.  The GutterShutter design provides a water-tight seal from the roofline down using the  High-Back gutter trough — and there is nothing to void your roof and shingle warranty.

Poorly designed gutter systems are prone to other issues, such as pulling away from fascia boards, overflowing, leaking, and deteriorating over time.

The GutterShutter Gutter Protection System

GutterShutter System is not a typical gutter guard — it’s a two-piece system that is completely covered and sealed with no vertical openings, filters, or screens.

The system consists of two parts: the bottom (trough) and the top (gutter protection). The two-piece design allows both the top and the bottom to be supported by the brackets, making it the most secure and durable gutter system on the market.

No more clogged downspouts and underground drainage issues! The GutterShutter gutter protection system is a beautiful addition to any home, with a variety of color options. Add curb appeal and value to your property with GutterShutter’s crown molding look and feel, quality materials and performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 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.
