5″ & 6" SEAMLESS GUTTERS
Seamless/Continuous gutters have been the standard gutter used in Alberta for decades. They come in several colors to match the soffit and fascia on your home. We would love to hear from you and become your Peace of Mind gutter company.
What sets our gutter installs apart from others?
Heavy-duty hangers - The hangers we use are the strongest hangers we have found. They have a wide front, helping grab more surface area on the front of the gutter, giving the gutter more strength. We always mount our hangers underneath the drip edge to prevent any water from wicking behind the gutter.
Better sealants - We use Shell Tixophalte. This is a bitumen-based sealant. The sealant does not harden over time and allows for movement. It is non-toxic and can be applied in wet conditions or underwater, allowing us to install in any weather.
Better corner installs - We pride ourselves on installing the highest quality corner that we can. We fold the flaps to the inside of the gutter to create a strong, beautiful corner.
Incorporation of "GUTTER CORNER FIX" product - Our "Gutter corner fix" product is an optional flexible PVC corner insert we can include with our 5" aluminum and steel jobs. Our inlay is a permanent fix and will prevent your corners from leaking and stop the reoccurring sealant maintenance, which would otherwise be required. The corner insert allows for thermal movement and is sealed to your gutter with special double-sided tape and sealant. See our Gutter Corner Fix page in the menu to learn more about the ingenuity of our burgeoning product.
Proper slope and install - We don't cut corners when it comes to installs. We do site surveys, consult with the customer, and take our time on the job. Getting your slopes and outlet locations right the first time is pivotal to proper long-term rainwater protection for your home.
Colors - We generally have no problem finding the color you love. Our manufacturers have a wide assortment of aluminum and steel colors to choose from.
Leaf Screens - We offer optional leaf screens that prevent leaves and debris from falling into the gutter.
6" Commerical Steel
Large roofs with large rain loads require our 6" commercial steel gutter and 3" x 4" downpipe. The 26" gauge steel gutter is designed for years of durability and large water movement efficiency. These commercial seamless/continuous gutters have been standard gutter used in Alberta for decades. They come in several colors to match the soffit and fascia on your building. We would love to hear from you and become your Peace of Mind gutter company.
