Mind In The Gutter? We Can Help!
Let’s talk gutters for a moment. Everyone has some idea of what gutters are, but few people understand what they mean. What do gutters mean to your home?
Essentially, gutters or eavestroughs are water displacement systems for your home…
That’s just a fancy way of saying “moving water away from where it doesn’t need to be.”
Water may be essential for life, but it does some pretty terrible things to buildings. That’s what a gutter pro protects you from. By adding and maintaining quality gutters and downspouts on a building, you can literally add decades to its lifespan.
What you do with all this water is up to you. Some use a collection system such as a rain barrel to store the water, while others simply direct the flow away from the foundation to a safe place.
There are many types of gutters or eavestroughs, and they have been made from many different materials. The early eavestrough was made of stone, and built right into the masonry of a building. Today, aluminum has become the basic eavestrough of choice, though there are many other material options available.
If you have concerns about the water displacement on a building in your care, speak to someone that knows gutters.
You’ll never regret it.
TYPES OF GUTTERS
Dynamic Gutters has installed gutter systems in a number of styles for clients all over the Greater Vancouver area.
So what can we do for you? In general, we work with three materials: aluminum, copper, and zinc. The quality of these materials allows us to build superior gutter systems that last a long time.
Though copper and zinc are unpainted products, aluminum gives a number of a painted options, allowing you to select the gutter colour that’s just right for you.
The continuous shape of the eavestrough is defined by the gutter profile. There are several profiles to choose from, and you can see examples of each of those profiles here.
You may wonder why Dynamic does not list galvanized steel, cast iron, or PVC as a potential gutter material. Frankly, these materials are obsolete.
Steel and cast iron are heavy materials that rust and decay much quicker than the non-ferrous (zero iron) alternatives.
PVC vinyl gutter systems share the same problems with quality, but for separate reasons. Vinyl will sag with age, and gets very brittle from its exposure to the elements.
If we couldn’t trust our materials, how could you be expected to trust us?
A lot of thought goes into the colour palette for your home. Gutters can be excellent accents to the finest homes.
Thankfully, these days gutters aren’t just functional, they can have great form too! In addition to the Copper and Zinc Gutters there is a wide variety of gutter colours available:
The above is just a small selection of colours that our gutters come in.
