What You Need to Know When Buying Rain Gutters for Your House

What Are Gutters?

You don’t often hear too much about people praising gutters, but we personally think that they are heaven-sent. You might be asking why, and we’ll tell you the simple reason: water ruins everything. Unfortunately, you often only come to realize this fact once the water has damaged something and left its mark. 

As it rains, water collects on your roof and begins to make its way to the edge. If there is no guttering there to stop the water, streams will run off the roof in every direction possible. If this water is not localized and directed into a drainage system, it can damage the earth beneath your house. 

If the land on which your property resides is damaged, you could be faced with some daunting structural problems that will cost a lot of money to repair and fix. See – water truly ruins everything. 

A high-quality gutter will either be made from strong plastic or metal and it runs around the edge of the roof to collect water. This water travels around the gutters until it meets a downspout that makes sure that it finds its way to a drainage system. 

Thanks to the gutters, the water ends up exactly where it’s supposed to be without compromising the structural integrity of your house. Other issues that can arise from faulty or missing gutters are moisture within the windows, roof deterioration, and incessant mold growth

How Much Do Gutters Cost? 

As you can see, gutters are incredibly important in keeping your house, and the people living inside of it, safe. But how much is this all going to cost you? This depends on a number of factors. For example, if you’re only fixing a missing portion of guttering you’re going to be left with a smaller bill than if you were to be guttering an entire house. 

This is because gutters are priced for every meter. A small house with a roof measuring around 26 meters might only cost around $50 to $670 to gutter. However, a large detached house with a 46-meter circumference could cost anywhere from $90 to $1,000. 

These numbers are just estimates. The material that you opt for will also affect the price. The majority of gutters come in either plastic or aluminum. Plastic is the more inexpensive alternative between the two, but aluminum is more durable and reliable. 

There are benefits to both plastic and aluminum gutters, so you should decide what you think is best for your home regarding your current situation. You also need to consider the additional costs of downspouts, gutter protection systems, and the installation process.

These three factors will increase your bill, so make sure that you take them into account. GH Clark offers three payment options in case you’d prefer to spread out the cost rather than pay it all at once. Don’t be put off of guttering your house just because of the estimated costs – structural damage will cost you much more in the long run. 

What Gutters Does GH Clark Provide?

GH Clark offers a number of different gutters and gutter accessories for you to choose from. When guttering your house it is generally advised that you’ll need downspouts and a protection system as well. Why shop elsewhere for these when GH Clark offers you everything that you could possibly need to get started? 

Let’s begin by looking at the gutters that we provide. We specialize in both residential and commercial gutters, so don’t fear about the width of your gutters. We offer both regular gutters for residential buildings and wider gutters for commercial properties.

Our gutters are made from Seamless Aluminum and come in either 5 or 6-inch widths. The latter is best for Commercial guttering due to the larger roofs collecting more rainwater at a faster rate. We also offer gutter cleaning if you don’t fancy getting up there and raking out all of the old leaves and debris. 

The Downspouts that we offer come in the same material and color options as the gutters. We have chosen to do so to avoid you from having to face a mismatched guttering system that can make your house look incomplete. There are plenty of colors to choose from so you can find one that is perfectly matched to your house and style. 

Finally, we offer Gutter Protection Systems that are used to prevent the gutters from being clogged with leaves or dirt. Once a gutter has been blocked the water cannot trickle around as easily and therefore can overflow and cause damage to your roof or land. 

We offer three gutter protection systems, all of which are highly regarded and trusted by all of our past clients. If you’re concerned about them; however, rest assured that we do cover your investment with a materials and labor warranty.

Feel free to get in touch with us at (410) 414-7060, Monday through Friday, to discuss all of your guttering needs and concerns. Our helpful professionals are educated thoroughly in the matter and can answer any questions that you may have.

Rain Gutters collect water from the roof and with the help of down spouts divert water away from your home or building. Seamless gutter installation is an essential piece of every building. A building with improperly functioning gutters is just as bad as not having gutters in the first place. Without gutters your building may be at an increased risk of water damage.

G.H. Clark provides gutters and installation for all types of structures. We also have many different applications to meet your exact needs. See more about downspouts, seamless aluminum gutters, gutter protection systems, gutter cleaning, or commercial gutter systems.
