Let Us Help Moisture-Proof Your Home with Quality Gutter Systems
If you already know that you’re in need of a new gutter system, it’s helpful to understand some of the basics of this component, such as the types of gutter installations you should consider. The reason gutters are important, particularly for St. Louis homes, is they make sure all excess water is guided and carried away from the foundation. If water doesn’t have anywhere to go, it might pool around the home and cause issues with everything from siding to flooring.
Exterior Building Solutions can help familiarize yourself with the ideal gutter systems for your home. With nearly a decade of professional experience, we’re able to install a wide range of gutter types to different home styles, making us among your most reliable sources of gutters in the region.
How much rain can your gutter handle? Here’s a bit of trivia: St. Louis, MO, gets as much as 43 inches of rain annually—that’s a few inches greater than the average inches of rain in the entire United States, which is 39. While occasional rain showers can actually be quite nice, they can also create problems to local homes that have inefficient gutters or don’t have gutters at all.
We Offer Different Gutter Types for Your Home
Rain gutters come in various types, sizes, and shapes. It’s important that you consider your home’s profile and requirements to know which option best suits your needs. Here at Exterior Building Solutions, we offer two the most efficient types of gutter installations, such as:
- Half-Round Gutters – More often found on older homes, this type is rounded on the bottom and has a smooth surface. They can be seamless and constructed on site. Half-round gutters are available mostly in 5” and 6” sizes.
- K-style Gutters – Instead of having a rounded shape, K-style gutters are more box-like. They have flat backs and bottoms, with the front side usually having a decorative shape that mimics crown molding. They can be made of either steel, aluminum, zinc, copper, or vinyl. K-style gutters also come in regular 5” and 6” sizes.
If you’re not sure which gutter type or material suits your home, our experts can recommend your best options. We’ve been helping local homeowners protect their homes from water damage since 2008, and we’ll be glad to do the same for your own structure. You can count on us to install your new gutters with the same attention to detail and quality workmanship that has made us a customer favorite and leader in the industry.
