Frequently asked questions

Needing to replace your gutters can happen for a variety of reasons. Leaky gutters or gutters that hold water can be an issue. Gutters that look or or worn out can make your house look less
appealing. Old gutters may not drain properly or may be tearing away from the home. Some old gutters are bent and cannot be repaired, causing clogs and other draining issues. You may
desire a new set of gutters to match a style or house color you’re looking for.

To protect your home and keep it safe from water penetration, we recommend homeowners clean their gutters on a regular basis. In March to clear out the branches, dirt and other winter
debris so that they are ready for the “April Showers”; in June to clean out all the oak tassels, ragweed, seed pods, “helicopters”, and other debris; in August to remove wind-blown debris caused by Summer thunderstorms; and then in the Fall: (October, November, or December) to remove all the clogs caused by leaves that come down throughout the Fall season, before the
winter freeze.

The amount of times per year you should clean your gutters depends on what kind of trees are in your area. If the trees shed while hanging over your gutters you can expect to clean your
gutters up to 4 times per year. Pine trees are often the biggest culprits in causing regular gutter cleaning. If you have few trees around your property, cleaning twice a year is sufficient.

 

The size of your home, the amount of rain your property receives per year, the trees around your home, the materials needed for great performance, the gutter style and gutter color are all factors when choosing which gutter product to use. Myers Gutter Services can help determine which gutters you should install, and estimates are always free.

Seamless Gutters have fewer seams and joints in the gutters and downspouts, which leads to less chance of leaking. The product is stronger than a standard gutter system because it’s not made of multiple parts. This allows it to withstand heavy loads and strong winds.

Seamless Gutters reduce the amount of leaks, are custom fit to your home, can withstand heavy winds and reduce the chance of blockages. Aesthetically, they come in a variety of colors and look great!

K-Style Gutters have a double curved design that looks very similar to crown molding. These gutters come in a variety of sizes, and can be build in a seamless way if desired. The shape of
these gutters allows for an increased volume of water flow. They are strong and the shape protects them from dents. The majority of buildings use this style of gutter on the edge of their
roofs due to affordability and ease of installation.

Most gutter cleaning companies do not require you to be home for your gutter cleaning services.
Since the gutters are all outside of your home, they do not need access to the inside of your
home. Here at Red Hat Gutter Company we send out automated notifications when we are on the way
to the home, and when we are done the job. We also provide pictures of the cleaned gutters
once the job is complete. That way if you’re not home, you still have proof that we completed
the job.

Rain gutters without downspouts will not move water away from the roof or foundation of a building properly. A downspout is attached to the corners of a building and used to transfer the water from the gutter to the street or other drainage location. The directional curve can be
unique to each installation, but the downspouts are required to create a tight fitting system with no leaks.

Gutters become useless when they are clogged with debris. They become unable to channel
water properly into your drainage or rainwater collection system. The resulting buildup of water
can then become a breeding ground for insects, overflow into and damage your landscaping, or
seep into your roof, siding, basement and foundation.
