- Gutters are clogged with debris; OR
- The gutter system isn't sufficient to handle the amount of rain
Gutters that are too small or are improperly installed can result in water moving off the roof in amounts the gutters just can't handle. You may need gutters that are larger, and you may need more downspout openings.
Gutters come in several different sizes, the most common being 5". But if you've got a roof with an overhang, those 5" gutters may be insufficient. A steep roof pitch or a larger roof area may also require larger gutters. We've also got something else than can help: larger downspouts. Standard downspouts are either 2-inch round or 1.75 by 2.25 -inch rectangular. We don't believe that either of those is sufficient for our heavy Minnesota rains, and so on our seamless steel gutter systems we use the revolutionary SuperSpout. These 3-inch downspouts and elbows are about 50% stronger than comparable products, and they can improve the rain handling capacity of your gutters by at least a third.
If you're questioning whether your rain handling system can effectively deal with the heavy rains that are in the forecast, give us a call for a no-obligation consultation in your home. We'd love to share more of the benefits of our seamless steel gutters with you and give you an installation quote.Quarve Contracting, Inc. is a licensed Minnesota home remodeling contractor specializing in exterior services, including seamless steel gutters.
