HEAVY DUTY .027 SEAMLESS ALUMINUM
Another valuable reason for gutters is to extend your roof's lifespan, and the gutter's drip edge will help prevent water from wicking back onto the the home's woodwork and framing areas. Gutters will channel the water into the downspouts to be moved away from the home's fascia, soffit and foundation areas.
This water becomes stagnate if left standing in the gutters. Proper water management and disposal of rainwater is extremely valuable in preventing foundational issues, cracked sidewalks, flooded basements, rotted fascia and water damaged soffit are only a few reasons rain gutters are so important.
Gutters also protect the home's siding, especially wood or stone-based sidings. Water is pervasive and overflowing roof edges with no gutters to channel the water, will cause water to stream down the home's siding and cause major water damage.

HelloGutters uses heavy-duty .027mm gauge thick solid aluminum seamless five inch or six inch gutters and 3"x4" oversized aluminum downspouts with big mouth downspout sleeves.
These gutters have an additional 20-year manufacture's warranty and also includes a no-fade 50-year double baked-on paint warranty. HelloGutters installs our exclusive hidden hanger system providing additional strength and includes our inclusive lifetime transferable warranty if LeafSolution Extreme gutter guards are included.
Gutters are manufactured in three thicknesses; .024mm thick; .027mm thick; and .032mm thick.
.032 commercial grade is recommended for roof platforms with 10,000 square feet or more. Prices range from $24 to $35 per foot installed, depending on the level (height) of the building. .032mm has a 20-year warranty.
.027 residential grade is recommended for roof platforms with 10,000 square feet or less. Prices range from $16 to $28 per foot installed. Roof platforms of more than 6000 square feet should consider six inch gutters, however, five inch will work if gutter protection (such as, LeafSolution) is installed. .027mm has a 20-year warranty.
.024 is very flimsy and will dent fairly easy and prices range from $6 to $12 per foot installed. A falling pinecone or wayward bird will dent the .024mm aluminum gutters. Most gutter companies will not tell you what gauge aluminum will be installed on your home unless the you (the homeowner) ask. Some will charge .027 prices but install .024 aluminum. Always ask and if getting multiple estimates, ensure the quotes are for the same materials. Always read what your neighbors have to say in reviews left by past experiences. Reviews tell a company's true story! .024mm has an one-year warranty.
Most gutter companies will only put enough reinforcement brackets as needed to hold up the gutters. Hidden hangers have a hefty price tag and it takes added crew time to install 100 brackets than it does to install only 50 brackets, however, the gutters become seven times stronger by adding twice as many reinforcement brackets; and as such the gutter have a much longer performance period.
Always request the additional support brackets, even if the cost is a little more, because it will pay off in the long-run with less gutter repair issues. Water is heavy and during rainfall, the gutter will be worked to their limit, and over a few years, the weather abuse is sever enough to cause minor damage to the gutter system, and eventually experience complete or partial failure due to a lack of reinforcements.
