The performance and longevity of a gutter system depends on the workmanship of the people who installed it. That’s why it’s important to hire a reputable gutter company. In today’s article, ABC Seamless, the top Gutter Helmet® installer in our local area, discusses gutter installation best practices that we always follow.

Calculate the Correct Slope

Your gutters may look like they run parallel to the ground, but they’re actually installed at a slight incline to ensure the smooth flow of water into the downspouts. In general, there should be a ¼” of slope for every 10 feet of gutters. Calculating the slope must be done carefully and precisely or else the gutters won’t function properly.

Apply Sealant Properly

Sectional gutters are vulnerable to leaks if they are not installed correctly. That’s why we always make sure to apply sealant properly. We make sure that the gutters are completely dry and then we apply a liberal amount of sealant inside the gutters. This will prevent gutter leaks when it rains.

Clean Up After the Job

A professional gutter company always makes sure to clean up after the gutter installation project. We do our best to leave your property as clean as it was when we first arrived. We’ll take our leftover materials and supplies when we go and we’ll also properly dispose of waste materials. If you have any questions or concerns about your new gutters, then we’ll make sure to address them before we leave. Our goal is to leave you completely satisfied with your new gutters.

Installing Gutter Helmet can greatly improve your gutters’ performance by protecting them from leaves and other debris. Gutter Helmet completely covers your gutters and has no vertical openings. It only has a tiny horizontal slit for rain to enter. Our gutter protection system uses the principle of surface tension to make sure that water is the only thing that will enter your gutters.
