Gutters And Downspouts
There are two main functions that the gutters and downspouts serve. First, they help capture and direct the roof run-off water away from the house. Second, they help protect the exterior surface and perimeter grading of the home from water damage that can result from water stains on the walls or soil erosion around the home.
Gutters and downspouts come in different sizes and should be selected based on particular conditions of your home, roof pitch and complexity of roof design. Also, it’s important to consider the local weather conditions.
V & D Professional Roofing installs predominantly aluminum gutters in standard and oversize sizes, in addition, we also install copper per request. Your standard size is 5″ inch gutter with 2′ X 3′ inch downspouts. For the oversized version those specs are 6″ inch gutter with 3′ X 4′ inch downspouts . (90% of our customers select these).
We also install (2) versions of gutter screens as well. Simple version is metal mesh screen and our advanced version is called “Leaf Blaster”. These will eliminate any leaf debris that tends to infiltrate the gutter runs and clog up downspouts.
