 Gutter Covers Madison Wisconsin In this picture you can see a home with some of the cheap plastic gutter covers that you can buy at Home Depot or Menards.  They don't screw into place and so often come loose or get blown out.  There are sections missing.  When a section is missing then the debris not only gets into the gutter but also gets trapped under the existing gutter covers.  The pieces often sag and debris gets in where two pieces of gutter cover meet.

Sometimes we see the plastic screen separate from the plastic frame and then debris gets in there.

Here is a job we did in the Monona area of Madison.  The gutters are galvanized steel.  They are half round with smooth round four inch downspouts.  They are starp hung with box mitres.  That give the house that cool industrial look.  The house had other industrial accents like the lights and the metal on the gables.  The gutters really pulled it all together.  We can do galvanized steel gutters like this or aluminum half round gutters.  The downspouts can be smooth like this or corrugated.  Both styles of downspouts give the classic look to a home.

Here you can see a solid gutter cover.  Where the 2 pieces of gutter come together there is always going to be a lot of extra water at the valley.  Some companies put in a cheap and easy solution like the one in the picture.  This isn't going to catch much water.  

 

At Capital Seamless Gutters we use a manufactured High Flow Inside Mitre Panel.  This actually extends past the gutter giving the panel a lot of surface area to slow the water down and push it into the gutter.  The panel is screwed to the gutter and secured tightly under the shingles giving it a lot of strength.

Some homeowners choose to upgrade to a Six inch gutter.  This gutter will handle about twice the amount of water that a Five inch gutter will. This homeowner went with a six inch gutter and a 4x5 downspout and Leaf Solution gutter guards.  The 4x5 downspouts are rarely used on residential homes.  They are usually used only on commercial gutter jobs.  Most homeowners don't like the look of the extra large downspouts but sometimes a homeowner want the largest they can get for extra extra insurance.  However, if the gutters are kept free of any debris with a micro mesh gutter guard like Leaf Solution then the 3x4 downspouts are plenty big enough.

The six inch gutters do provide a lot more rain carrying capacity for those torrential downpours or for heavy volume areas.  Sometimes we install them when there is a large roof area coming to a small area of gutter.  It is also important to consider whether you would like the appearance of them.

Rhino Gutter Guards in Madison Wisconsin Area We install several types of gutter guards to fit each homeowners specific needs and budget.  One of those products is Rhino Gutter Guard.  It  has a micromesh that keeps all debris including shingle grit out.  It attaches to the fascia and does not touch the shingles.  Attaching to the fascia and the front lip of the gutter adds strength to the gutter and effectively creates a box.  It comes with a 20 Year No Clog Guarantee.  Here is a house we did in McFarland.

You can see there is some snow and ice on the guards.  Even the heavies ice loads are not a problem for Rhino and it keeps it shape and continues to work in the spring.

These are the old gutters.  Because of this big gap between the drip edge and the gutters the water was able to run behind the gutters and onto the soffit and possibly into the house.  This would have caused rotting and mold if left like this.  We removed these gutters and replaced them with new seamless aluminum gutters.  We installed the new ones up behind the drip edge.  Because there was no fascia board we strapped them to the roof and took extra time to put the straps and screws under the shingles.  Putting the straps under the shingles means no holes in the shingles and no unsightly straps on the shingles.

Homeowners often find that after getting a new roof they have problems with the gutters.  Roofers often rehang the gutters but do not do it correctly.  It is a good idea to get the gutters inspected after a new roof to make sure...

Here is a picture of a house in Middleton Wisconsin where we installed Gutterscreens.  You can sense the amount of trees they had to deal with.  The trees are bare at the time of the installation but have a ton of leaves and debris fall from them at certain times of the year.  From this roof shot you can see that the gutterscreen provides a finished look to the gutter from above and a complete barrier on the gutters.   From the ground the screens are almost invisible-you can't seem them in most locations.  

 

 

Gutter Screens Madison Area

 

The screens do a good job of keeping out all but the smaller debris and are less expensive than most gutter guards.  The screen screws to the front of the gutter and then slides under the shingle which gives it a forward pitch and helps to shed debris that falls on it or on the roof.  The screen comes in...

Madison Gutter Guards keep Pine Needles, Hornet Nests, and Leaves out of the gutters. These gutters had gutter guards but they didn't keep everything out.  The homeowner requested an estimate for gutter guards that would replace his solid cover gutter covers.  Solid covers don't do a good job of keeping Pine Needles out.  Here you can see that the gutter covers had gotten clogged with debris at the opening into the gutter.  As the water tried to flow into the gutter, it hit the debris and flowed down the front of the gutter.  This made a mess of the front of the gutter.

You can see that the debris has collected along the front edge of the gutter cover.

Gutter screens Madison Area.

Here is a job we did in Verona Wisconsin.  We cleaned all the debris out of the gutters - it can be a lot when you get all the shingle grit that has gotten into the the gutter and turned to sludge-as it mixes with decomposing tree debris.  We bagged the debris and hauled it away. Some contractors just drop it into the bushes below.  This house had recently had a reroof so there was leftover nails and roofing debris in the gutters too.  We also checked to make sure the downspouts were not clogged but were free flowing.

Then we installed the Ultra flow gutter screen.  It comes in 4 foot sections that overlap one another.  We installed it underneath the shingles and then put 3 screws into the front edge of each piece, securing...

Gutter Guards Madison Area.   Here is a house we put 6" gutters and 3x4 downspouts and Micro Mesh gutter guards on.  Here you can see the front deck with 3 inside valleys and an outside mitre.  The larger gutters and downspouts blend in very nicely with the look of the house.

Here's the rest of the house.  In the first one you can see the front entryway with my telescoping ladder.
