Seattle Gutter Shutter Installation

Gutter Shutter Install

Ask Seattle homeowners if there’s one job they hate more than the rest, and they’ll often say, without a doubt—gutter cleaning. This yard keeping task is so cumbersome that many homeowners will put it off much longer than they should. So long in fact that their troughs end up getting clogged. With Gutter Shutter installation done by the Seattle gutter service professionals at Pacific Gutter, you can decrease your need for gutter cleaning without worrying about clogs or damage.

Due to Seattle’s impressive number of rainy days per year, debris like pine needles, deciduous leaves, twigs, and general dirt and grime can quickly collect in troughs. Once a clog develops, the troughs will no longer be able to properly divert water flow. This can lead to extensive water damage to your fascia boards, attic, and foundation.

In an ideal world, you would be able to keep your gutters clean without having to do any maintenance. With the help of our friendly team at Pacific Gutter, this isn’t just a pipe dream—there really is a solution that eliminates the need for regular cleaning, and that solution is the Gutter Shutter.

Gutter Shutter is one of the best guards on the market today. For installation in Seattle, WA, our friendly, professional, and knowledgeable team at Pacific Gutter is here to help. We’re proud to offer the innovative design of the Gutter Shutter system to residents of Seattle, Bellevue, Tukwila, Tacoma, Kent, and other nearby areas.

Our Seattle Gutter Shutter Installation Service

Gutter installation is one handyman job that you should leave to a professional. To effectively carry water away from your home, your system needs to be precisely angled for optimal drainage. It also must be measured and cut according to the dimensions of your property, thereby requiring a significant degree of carpentry know-how.

Our experts at Pacific Gutter have this knowledge and expertise. We’re partnered with Gutter Shutter because we want our customers to have the best system on the market. Benefits of Gutter Shutter installation include:

  • Durable Material: Gutter Shutter is made from premium grade, 0.032 gauge aluminum, making it the strongest system out of all guards on the market today.
  • Lifetime No-Clog Guarantee: Featuring a rolled hood design, the system is fully enclosed, making clogs impossible.
  • Lifetime No-Pull Guarantee: Heavy rainfall and clogs can cause channels to sag and bend. Overtime, this can cause them to pull away from the side of the roof, exposing the fascia and attic to runoff. Thanks to the premium grade aluminum used to build it, Gutter Shutter is the strongest system on the market. Not only does it not sag and pull, but it also carries 20 percent more water than other systems.
  • A Wide Range of Color Options: Boost your curb appeal by choosing from one of 18 colors that blend in with your siding and roof, or make a statement with an accent color. If none of these colors satisfy your needs, custom colors are also available.
  • No Roof Slope Requirements. Flat roofs, shallow roofs, and steep roofs will all work optimally with the Gutter Shutter.
  • No Roof Damage. Some guards are installed by attaching them to the roof itself. This can violate some roof warranties. Gutter Shutter attaches directly to your fascia, keeping your warranty intact. Fascia-only attachment also means that you won’t have to reinstall your gutters if you get your roof redone.

Gutter Shutter eliminates clogs for good, but you may be wondering if the expense is really necessary. Do clogs really cause issues major enough to warrant Seattle Gutter Shutter installation?

Common Causes and Effects of Damaged Gutters

Seattle has a reputation for being one of the rainiest cities in the United States, but is this reputation warranted?

Yes and no. Seattle has an average of 152 days of rain per year, more than most cities in the country. However, the quantity of rain on each of those days is pretty minimal. In total, Seattle receives about 37 inches of rain across those 152 days.

While a lack of heavy rain means that your system won’t often be in danger of overflowing, it does mean your system is more susceptible to a slow buildup of debris over time. Getting installation done for Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA can protect your home from costly damage and repairs.

Common Causes of Gutter Problems

  • Clogs: The more trees you have on your property, the more likely you are to develop clogs. Clogs can occur in the channels themselves, or in the downspout. If you notice your roof tends to have a lot of leaves on it, your system is more likely to develop clogs.
  • Rust and Corrosion: When metal gutters are damaged through scraping and denting, the coating can become damaged and leave it susceptible to rust.
  • Improper Installation: Gutters need to be properly angled to work. If not, they’ll develop standing water, and the water won’t be able to flow away from your home.

Common Effects of Gutter Problems

  • Leaks and Holes: When corrosion spreads, leaks and holes can spring up, leading to water runoff on fascia boards. Eventually, fascia boards will incur water damage and require replacement.
  • Sagging and Pulling: Heavy loads of water flow and debris can result in warping and allow water flow to drip down the side of your gutters. This can cause water damage in your attic space.
  • Overflow: Improper drainage also leads to overflow along the sides of the troughs.
  • Underground Flooding Issues: Once enough gallons of water escape, your basement may begin to flood.
  • Structural Damage: Without proper drainage, the roof, foundation, fascia boards, and siding of your home can become damaged and require immediate repair or replacement.

Getting installation done for Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA will protect your home much better than a traditional gutter system ever could.

Preventing Clogs with Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA

The main gutter problem for residents of Seattle, WA, is clogs. To prevent clogs from happening, you need to keep your system clean through, at a minimum, semi-annual maintenance. Alternatively, you can hire a gutter cleaning company to come clean them for you.

If you elect to maintain your gutters yourself, we recommend taking the following steps:

  • Get up on a ladder and inspect your gutters once every month. It’s also recommended that you check them the day after strong winds. With such consistent rain in Seattle, a clog can develop suddenly. Checking your system regularly will ensure efficient drainage at all times.
  • Cut down or trim big trees and shrubs in your yard. With the help of a little wind and rain, your rain gutter will become clogged in no time. Trimming these back will reduce the amount of leaves and vegetation that can enter the system.

If you choose to hire a professional cleaning service to save yourself time and avoid having to get onto a ladder, you’ll want to factor this into your budget. Gutter cleaning services aren’t unreasonably priced, but getting the service done at least twice per year will add up.

By replacing your current system with Seattle Gutter Shutter installation, you’ll save your valuable time for activities that are more meaningful to you, as well as your money. If you calculate the cost of semi-annual maintenance services compared to the cost of upfront installation for Gutter Shutter, you’ll likely find that you’ll save money in the long run. The lifetime no-clog guarantee makes the choice to switch easy!

Seattle Gutter Shutter FAQs

What Other Types of Gutter Guards Are There?

The Seattle Gutter Shutter system is one of several types of guards. There are five main categories of guards:

  • Screen: Made from either metal or plastic, screen guards are attached simply by lifting up the edge of the shingles and tucking them between the shingles and roof edge.
  • Brush: With an appearance of a water bottle cleaning brush, this guard type sits within the trough and blocks large leaves from entering the system.
  • Foam: Like the brush guard, foam guards sit directly in the trough. They are permeable enough to allow water to flow through, but the foam blocks debris.
  • Micro Mesh: Similar to screens, but have a much finer weave that prevents even the smallest particles from passing through.
  • Reverse Curve: This is the category that the Seattle Gutter Shutter system falls into.

All options are worth looking into, but nothing on the market completely eliminates clogs like getting installation for Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA does.

Why Should I Choose the Gutter Shutter Over Other Gutter Guards?

Although Seattle Gutter Shutter installation will come with initial installation costs, it will also help reduce your costs over time because it doesn’t come with any of the drawbacks that other systems have.

Disadvantages of other guards include:

  • Short Lifespans: The best guards won’t normally last you more than 15 years. Foam guards typically only last about 3 years, while brush guards begin needing replacement after 5 years. By choosing Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA, you won’t ever need early replacement.
  • Roof Attachment: Some guards attach directly to the roof, which can then void your roof warranty. Gutter Shutter attaches directly to your fascia boards and doesn’t depend on the roof at all.
  • Not Foolproof. All guards—even other reverse curve brands—do not eliminate clogs 100 percent of the time, but Seattle Gutter Shutter installation does.

How Much Does Installation Cost?

Though we’d like to provide you with a quote right on this page, it’s difficult to give a range, let alone an exact number, for the installation cost of Gutter Shutter in Seattle, WA. The cost will depend on the size of your home, the length of time required to complete the installation, and the customization options you choose.

Deciding to replace your entire system is a big commitment, and we want you to have all the facts first. For this reason, we provide no cost, obligation-free quotes.

How Long Does Installation Take?

Like cost, it’s hard to say exactly how long installation will take without knowing the size of your home. For some homes, we can get the job done in a day, while for very large homes, we may have to come back the next day.

Regardless of how long it takes, we will ensure that we arrive on time and complete the job according to the time estimate we give you at the beginning. We’ll also clean up after ourselves so well that you won’t even be able to tell we were there.
