Although Portland doesn’t get the heavy rains that our more southerly neighbors get, light showers happen a lot. For about three-quarters of the year, residents can expect damp, drizzly, and windy days more often than not. Portland gutter installation isn’t optional here—rain gutters are all that stand between homeowners and severe residential property damage.
Constant gutter use also means constant maintenance. The combination of winds and consistent water runoff from the roof results in the frequent buildup of debris in the troughs. Failing to regularly clean these troughs out results in clogs and—you guessed it—the potential for water damage.
Luckily, your local Portland gutter company is here to help. Unclogging your current gutter is a time-consuming menial task that most Portland homeowners wish they simply never had to do again. Having to get up on the ladder to do the job also makes it a risky one. You could hire a professional cleaning company to clear out clogs every four to six months, or you could save money with Pacific Gutter’s Gutter Shutter system.
Our experienced and customer-focused team has been working with gutters since 2008. Once we install this 100 percent clog-free guaranteed system, you’ll never have to worry about water damage or maintenance again.

Portland homeowners who have dealt with gutter repair know it too well. Constant rain means residents have more wear and tear on their drainage system than residents in many other American cities and states do. Most damage that results in the need for gutter replacement and repairs results from the build up of pine needles, leaves, and other types of debris in the troughs. If left untreated, clogs can become an attractive home for rodents and insects, resulting in a pest problem. They can also block the flow of water, leading to various types of water damage.
Troughs are attached to fascia boards, which provide a layer of moisture protection between the roof’s edge and attic. There are several different fascia styles, but most boards are made out of wood. As an organic material prone to rot, wood and water don’t mix well. A clogged trough will cause water to spill over the side and onto your fascia boards, causing them to rot. This will result in the necessity of fascia repair or even full replacement. Spillage can also leak into your attic, causing ceiling water damage, and pool on the ground near the side of the home, leading to basement flooding and structural damage.
Some Portland residents try using gutter guards to prevent or minimize the need for periodic Portland gutter installation. Different types of guards vary in effectiveness and durability, but the best ones provide some level of protection against clogs. However, they only reduce the frequency of maintenance rather than eliminate it entirely. Some guards also need to be attached to the roof itself to work properly. If you need a roof repair down the line, this could void your warranty.
Over time, troughs with clogs will begin to pull away from your house and no longer effectively redirect water flow. A fair share of Portland residents finds that they need to replace their gutters multiple times over the years. This can be very costly, but it doesn’t need to be.

By installing gutters on your own, you’ll certainly save on labor costs. However, unless you have experience in the industry yourself, there are a lot of associated extra costs that will likely result in you spending more money than you would if you just hired a professional company to do the installation in the first place. Some of these costs include:
Absolutely. Because sectional gutters come in pieces between ten and 20 feet in length, they have several points of connection called joints. Over time, these joints can weaken and lead to leaks. Seamless joints are only cut and attached at corners, so they have much fewer points of weakness.
Sectional systems also have to be fully installed on-site, which requires more time and will drive up the cost of labor. Part of the assembly for seamless gutter installations takes place off-site, so your service technician can get them up and installed in less time.
Seamless types cost more upfront, but a sectional system often ends up costing homeowners more in the long run. The cost savings and durability of the seamless design make it unquestionably worth it for most homeowners.
There are many different types of materials used for gutters, but the most common are vinyl and aluminum. Vinyl is a plastic material and is a common material for sectional systems. Those who wish to do a DIY Portland gutter installation tend to choose vinyl systems that snap together. Unfortunately, this system has a very short lifespan. Plastic is susceptible to cracking under weight and due to continued UV exposure, thereby causing lots of leaks and clogs.
Aluminum is nearly as lightweight as vinyl but much more durable. Most seamless designs are made from aluminum. Though an aluminum gutter system is susceptible to rust, most are covered in a protective coating and paint to protect them. They’re also much more eco-friendly.
