Why are gutters important?

An effective gutter system is critical to your home's longevity and ability to manage water.  Without proper water management around your home, it becomes susceptible to premature damage. Here are some specifics:

  • Water Damage Prevention: Gutters play a vital role in directing rainwater away from your home's foundation, walls, and landscaping, preventing erosion, basement flooding, and structural damage.

  • Roof Protection: By efficiently channeling water off the roof, gutters also prevent water accumulation that can lead to roof damage and leaks.

Complete Gutter Buying Guide

Gutter Terminology

  • K-Style gutters: Probably the most common style of gutter you will see.  They are called K-style gutters because the side profile of the gutter resembles the letter K. They can be made from a variety of materials.

  • Half round gutters: These are exactly what they sound like.  Half round gutters are half of a tube.  They are more common on older homes that want that historic look.  They can be made from any of the materials mentioned below.

  • Box gutters: Box gutters are built into the bottom of the roof, and are "boxed" in, therefore they aren't visible from the ground. Box gutters are more common in commercial applications.

  • Fascia gutters: These are custom-made gutter systems that are specific to each house.  These are much less common as they are typically used for houses that don't have a fascia board installed across rafters.

  • Seamless gutters: Seamless gutters are just as they sound - they have no seam, which reduces the chance of leaks and breaks.  They are custom fit for each project and made from a single piece of metal.

  • 5" vs 6" vs 7" gutters: This simply refers to the size of the gutter.  Bigger gutters are better for heavy rain fall areas, or large sections of roof where more water can accumulate in the gutter.  Bigger gutters also allow for bigger downspouts.

Gutter Materials

  • Vinyl: Vinyl is always a great choice.  It's lightweight, easy to install, and affordable.  They are resistant to rot, rust, chipping and flaking. In extreme temperatures however, they can sometimes crack.

  • Aluminum: Aluminum gutters are also a great option.  They have a lot of the same benefits as vinyl - they are lightweight, resistant to rust and rot, and can be purchased in a variety of colors and styles.  They are also affordable.  They can be dent or bent more easily though.

  • Copper: Copper gutters are higher end and typically used on more luxury homes.  They have a beautiful, distinctive look that ages well over time.  They are super durable and last for a long time.  

  • Galvanized steel: Steel gutters are strong and durable, but can rust over time when not properly maintained.  They are also heavier, making them more challenging to install, and more hardware to hold them.

  • Zinc: Zinc gutters are very durable, long lasting and corrosion resistant.  They to age well, and like copper, develop a distinctive patina over time. They are more expensive like copper, too.

Homeowners want options and convenience.  Too many contractors still rely on paper and handshake promises. At D&G, we use technology whenever we can because it creates a much better experience for our customers.


Answering the phone.  Responding to your questions. Showing up on time.  Communication.  These should be industry standards, but they aren't.  We do our best to show up as professionals.
