Products Installed: White Seamless Gutters & Downspouts with Black Gutter Topper
As seamless gutter contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan the homeowners wanted to install a new gutter system as their current system was clogged in several areas including their underground drainage areas. Extensive travel takes the homeowners away from their home so as responsible homeowners they knew that they had to have a gutter protection system installed that would give them peace of mind in knowing that their home would not be susceptible to the potential damage clogged gutters can cause.
We met with the one of the homeowners to discuss their existing concerns and determine what remedies were necessary while discussing the particulars of Dennison Exterior Solutions custom made on-site seamless gutter system as well as how the Gutter Topper system was engineered to be customized at their property as well.
We removed almost all the existing gutters and downspouts on the home with the exception of one area on the front of the home, cleaned up the debris and hauled them away to a recycler. We then brought our gutter machine to their home and ran out the seamless gutters to match the homes specifications. We also installed factory made outside and inside corners and sealed those seams with clear sealant with a twenty year warranty.
As gutter guard contractors in Saint Joseph Michigan Gutter Toppers number one rating based on independent testing is engineered to be installed over most existing gutter systems even though this homeowner chose to replace theirs as it included the older spike and ferrule fastening system. Gutter Topper was designed to be custom bent on-site to match the pitch of your roof and be attached every foot to the entire front lip of the seamless gutters with ¼” stainless steel zip screws and then fastened under the second course of shingles every foot with stainless steel deck screws. The Gutter Toppers fastening system greatly strengthens your entire gutter system as it now it not only fastened every foot to the roof but at least every two feet to through the facia boards and into the rafter tails of the roofs truss system. The custom bend to match the pitch of your roof gives the Gutter Topper system a low-profile that blends in with the roof-line and to top it off Gutter Topper is available in 13 standard colors designed to match the many different shingle colors on the market today as well as 16 ounce genuine copper. Gutter Topper also has it writing from GAF and CertainTeed that the Gutter Toppers unique installation method does not harm or comprise the shingles warranty.
