Quality installations, built to last

Water may be necessary for life, but water in the wrong places around your home can cause serious problems. A faulty guttering system can contribute to the damage to your shingles, foundation, driveway, walkways, and landscaping.

Properly configured downspouts are essential to collect rainwater from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home.

Elite Roof and Solar will remove your old gutter system and then fabricate your gutters onsite. Our primary product is a seamless gutter system and is nationally recognized as the most popular form of guttering because it eliminates unsightly seams, reduces the possibility of leaks, rarely needs painting, and has many color options to choose from to match your home’s design.

Gutter Installation FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I install gutters, gutter guards, and downspouts myself?

    While DIY installation is possible for some, it’s generally best to hire a professional. Improper installation can lead to ineffective water drainage and potential damage to your home. Professional installers like Elite Roof and Solar have the experience and tools to ensure your gutters, gutter guards, and downspouts are properly fitted and functioning.

  • If I have gutter guards then I don’t need to clean my gutters, correct?

    While gutter guards significantly reduce the amount of debris that enters your gutters, they are not entirely maintenance-free. Small particles such as dirt, pine needles, and roof shingle granules can still accumulate over time and may eventually cause clogs. Additionally, gutter guards themselves can become clogged or damaged and may need to be cleaned or repaired periodically. To ensure optimal performance and longevity of your gutter system, it’s important to inspect and clean your gutters and gutter guards at least once a year (oftentimes just simply using a leaf blower to blow off any dried debris can do the trick). Regular maintenance helps prevent potential issues and ensures that your gutters effectively channel water away from your home.

  • How often should I clean my gutters and downspouts?

    It’s recommended to clean your gutters and downspouts at least twice a year, in the spring and fall. However, if you have overhanging trees or experience frequent storms, more frequent cleanings may be necessary. Installing gutter guards can significantly reduce the need for frequent cleaning.

  • Are gutter guards worth the investment?

    Yes, gutter guards can be a worthwhile investment as they reduce the frequency of gutter cleaning, prevent clogs, and extend the lifespan of your gutters. While the initial cost may be higher, the long-term savings on maintenance and potential water damage repairs make them a smart choice for many homeowners. Make sure to get multiple quotes for gutter guards, especially if you are thinking of using a “national brand” of gutter guards or one that heavily advertises. There are much more affordable options available from Elite Roof and Solar and the products are essentially identical.

  • What types of specialty gutters are available?

    Specialty gutters include a variety of materials and styles designed to meet specific needs. Common options are copper gutters, which are durable and aesthetically pleasing, and half-round gutters, which are often used in historic homes for their classic look. Custom designs are also available to match your home’s architecture – ask your Elite Roof and Solar salesperson for further details

  • How do I know if I need new gutters or downspouts?

    Signs that you may need new gutters or downspouts include visible cracks or splits, rust or peeling paint, sagging or pulling away from the house, frequent clogs, and water damage around your home’s foundation. If you notice any of these issues, it’s time to consider replacing your gutters and downspouts.

  • What are gutter guards and how do they work?

    Gutter guards are protective covers that prevent debris like leaves, twigs, and dirt from clogging your gutters. They allow water to flow freely while blocking larger particles, reducing the need for frequent gutter cleaning and maintenance. Gutter guards come in various styles, including mesh and screens.

  • Why are gutters and downspouts important for my home?

    Gutters and downspouts are crucial for channeling rainwater away from your home’s foundation, preventing water damage, soil erosion, and basement flooding. Properly functioning gutters and downspouts protect your roof, walls, and landscaping, ensuring the structural integrity and longevity of your home.
