Fairfax Contractors Gutter Installation Process

Seamless gutters are installed in the following manner. After you have contracted to have your gutter system replaced, including the color, size, and options through Fairfax Contractor we will remove your old gutters, and recycle the aluminum. We will carefully inspect the fasia board for any rotting wood. If we find the woods behind your gutters to be rotting we would probably recommend replacing the facia boards before any gutter installation. Most often we recommend utilizing PVC material such as Azek to replace the bad bad wood before moving forward with your gutter installation. Azek facia boards are designed never to be painted, and will not rot due to the constant rain water associated to this part of your home. Another option is for us to cap your existing fascia boards with aluminum coil stock that will match your new gutter color. Once we are certain that the patient boards on your home are in good repair we will start the gutter installation process. Most homes in northern Virginia utilizes called a K-  stylealuminum seamless gutter. Our mobile trucks are equipped with the state-of-the-art KWM Gutterman eextrusion machine.

Utilizing a drill and a hole saw wwe will install the exit point for the water, with a special metal attachment that will be tied in your downspouts. Carefully leveling the gutters is oh so important. Many contractors feel that the gutter should be installed level so that they appear symmetrical to the house. Fairfax contractor installs their gutters with a slight grade of approximately 2 inches for a 40 foot run. there are many schools of thought when it comes to how to properly install the grade of your gutters, you may talk to some companies, and they say that they install their gutters level. As the water bills up into the gutter. It will find the path of least resistance and flow down to the downspouts. This train of thinking, cannot only cause serious ice damage, but also can flood your basement, potentially. A 5 inch gutter holds approximately 1.25 gallons of water per foot, whereas a 6 inch gutter holds approximately 2 gallons of water. adding too much slope to the gutter installation will put too much pressure on to the downspouts, so in the opinion of Fairfax Contractor we believe the best course of action is to put a gentle slope on your gutter installation. No longer do we utilize the old spike in farrell system for attachment of the gutter to your facia boards. We prefer utilizing screwed hidden fasteners, which we try to install into your roofing trusses if at all possible. When all of your gutters have been installed with the correct pitch on dear facia boards, we will then install down spout systems. They are basically 2 sizes of downspouts 2″ x 3″, and 3″ x 4″  sometime for as Turbo turbo downspouts. It’s important calculating the size of your downspout based upon the square footage of the roof area that you are trying to drain. Anything over 600 ft.² should require 6 inch shutters and 3. Inch by 4 inch downspouts. These downspouts are attached to your gutter outlets utilizing screws and straps to properly attach the downspouts to your home.
