Green Roofing and Construction offers full gutter replacement, gutter cleaning, and installation of gutter guards. Our professional installers custom design your gutters to provide the most effective drainage system. We offer a variety of gutter options including vinyl, aluminum, galvanized steel, copper, or stainless steel.
Aluminum gutters are lightweight, powder coated to match any exterior, and rust resistant. Unlike vinyl gutters, they are weather-resistant and maintain their strength in cold climates. Aluminum gutters are the most commonly installed for residential application.
Copper gutters are popular as they have a favorable design, are very durable, and save you money in the long run. There are many different designs/looks for copper gutters. There are rectangle and rounded styles and also an option for an older rustic look over time. Copper gutters will continue to remain strong all year long no matter the climate. These gutters can also save you money in the long run as they do not need to be replaced as often as traditional gutters. You could possibly change your traditional gutters multiple times before ever changing your copper gutters.
Galvanized steel gutters are very competitive cost-wise and are sturdier than aluminum. Although galvanized steel can rust over time, with proper maintenance they have enduring longevity.
Stainless steel gutters are virtually indestructible, shine for years, won’t rust, and are one of the strongest materials in the industry. Although stainless steel gutters are significantly more expensive than their counterparts, they add beauty and durability to any exterior.
Vinyl gutters are a popular choice for the budget conscious homeowner. They come in a variety of colors to match any exterior and resist rust and corrosion.
Gutter guards are an important component to any gutter system allowing your gutters to remain free of debris and flowing correctly. There are different types of gutter guards available including reverse curve, foam, screen/mesh, and brush.
Screen or mesh gutter guards are usually attached under the roofing shingle, and over the gutter. It is usually made of stainless steel and is powder coated to prevent rust. It allows rainwater through and blocks the debris. Green Roofing and Construction’s most popular gutter guard system is the screen/mesh type. Throughout Dallas Fort-Worth and Austin, Texas there are homes with a lot of tree coverage and you will find debris build up in the gutters. With the screen/mesh gutter guards debris stays out of the gutter system allowing for water to flow freely. The guard creates a dome like shape, which catches all debris.
The reverse curve gutter protectors also known as “gutter helmets” are attached to the roof of your house, and slopes over your gutters. While extending over your gutters, it curves down and back under itself, into the gutter. This allows the rainwater to run into the actual gutter. The debris flows off the roof because it does not stick like water does. Also, the curving back of the helmet has only a small opening, which guards against debris accumulation.
The foam gutter guard is made from porous polyurethane substance that fits perfectly into the gutter. It allows rainwater thorough and blocks the debris.
The gutter guard brush is inserted in the gutter. It catches the debris on the topside, and allows the water to flow though. The debris on the top of the brush either blows away or starts to decompose and wash through the brush during rainstorms.
