Don't let the rain ruin your home. Properly-installed gutters and gutter protection provide protection against erosion, plant damage, and basement flooding.
At Storm Shield, we know what separates adequate gutters and gutter guards from a gutter protection system that provides fail-safe performance and exceptional value. That’s why we only install the best products available.
We tend to not think much about our gutters until there's a problem. Clogs and leaks can put your home at risk for moisture damage and wood rot. Additionally, well-functioning gutters and downspouts help direct roof runoff away from the foundation of your house and prevent water damage inside your basement or crawl space.

Gutters are available in various sizes and styles, each with its own benefits. Contact Storm Shield to learn more about the types of gutters we install and which style is best for your home.
K-style gutters look like a K when viewed from the side. These gutters are also known as "ogee" or "double curve" gutters. This style is available in different sizes, but the most common sizes are 5 and 6 inches.
K-style gutters hold more water and are less likely to bend than rounded gutters - but they can also be hard to clean.
Half-round gutters are on many turn of the century homes. Although, many homeowners still use them. Half-round gutters come in a variety of materials and can also be seamless. These gutters are also favored for their smoothness, resistance to corrosion, and clogging. Plus, they are easier to clean.
Half-round gutters aren't able to hold a lot of water, which can cause them to overflow in areas with a lot of rainfall.
Seamless gutters are effective and affordable, making them a top choice among homeowners. Seamless aluminum gutters are custom-fit to the exact length needed and have no joints or seams to let in water or debris. Aluminum gutters also offer many advantages - they won't crack or split like vinyl or rust like steel. Seamless aluminum gutters are a long-lasting, inexpensive solution that can be installed hassle-free.
Copper gutters are the perfect option if you are looking to add character and craftsmanship to your home. Copper gutters naturally patina with age and will vary in color depending on climate. Copper gutters are also durable and long-lasting and will never rust or need to be painted. This type of gutter system should be installed by a professional because joints and seams must be soldered. A major disadvantage of copper gutters is the cost and installation - copper gutters are much harder to install and are more expensive than aluminum or steel options.
If you’re installing new gutters, it makes sense to think about installing gutter guards (aka leaf filters, gutter covers, etc.) as well. This adds a little expense to the job, but eliminates a lot of headaches over clogged, overflowing gutters that can damage your home. Besides, if you’re investing in new gutters and downspouts, why is the risk of having them become filled with rotting leaves, twigs, and other debris?
