Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions we’re frequently asked about our products, our services and our process.
Gutters are essential in the protection of the exterior of your home. They help maintain the integrity of your foundation and protect the overall structure. They prevent water intrusion and keep crawlspaces and basements dry. Gutters are capable of channeling hundreds of potentially damaging gallons of water away from your home. They help prevent wood rot and the formation of molds and fungi. A properly constructed eavestroughing system protects your siding and paint and can prevent costly repairs to your exterior.
Gutters are actually more affordable than most people think. The cost of a new guttering system will have some variables that affect the overall cost. These include: total linear footage, the amount of downspouts and their length, the number of mitered corners, the height of project, and the particular material chosen. For a project that generally costs 1% or less of the value of your home, gutters are extremely economical even given the variables that affect each particular project. Small price, big dividends on protection.
WeatherTek offers a variety of materials for your eavestroughing needs. We currently produce gutters using aluminum, steel, galvanized plus, Ternecoat stainless steel and the king of guttering materials, copper. The material that we use to produce our gutters is of the highest grade. We opt to use .027” thick material, as it is stronger, resists damage, and will last much longer and stay attractive longer than inferior metals.
We install 6” gutters for residential and commercial applications. 5” gutters are rapidly becoming obsolete, as they channel 50% less water than a 6” system. This is especially important in areas that receive heavy downpours and frequent rainfall. WeatherTek also employs 3”×4” downspouts which are much less prone to clogging and direct a larger amount of water away from your home. We are confident that our guttering systems are the absolute best solution for our region and afford you and your home the utmost in quality protection.
We offer 20+ colors, including copper, that can coordinate with virtually any home color or style. Our consultants can assist you in making the perfect choice. You are sure to find the color that best suits you, beautifies your living space, and protects your biggest investment!
