“My gutters are driving me nuts! I hate my gutters.”
Great working, good-looking gutters are possible with a planned fit system. The right size gutters and downspouts will work harmoniously to get all the water off your roof and into the drains.
Portland homeowners living about and beneath Oregon’s famous evergreen trees claim they have an added stress of constantly plugged gutters and drains. Others, not under trees or near trees, say that it’s the green Oregon gutter slime that builds up and blocks the downspouts causing their gutter grief. Most don’t know what to think because their gutters look normal but the water just keeps coming off the roof and traveling everywhere except flowing freely down the gutters and downspouts (spilling onto your siding, windows, walkways, and entries). Of course, then there are those gutters that look old and worn out, and you know it’s time to replace them.
I would like to help you with your gutter frustration, so I offer a short history lesson and an explanation.
“My gutters only bother me when it’s raining, and unfortunately, it rains in Portland, Oregon eight months out of the year!”
As a general rule, new home gutters are installed by the lowest bid in town. The production builder hires companies to put up a generic type gutter that may or may not fit the house style or roof size and because it was all part of the purchase of the home, it was considered good enough. It’s only after living there a few seasons that you become knowledgeable and frustrated. I have observed this frustration for 25 years and I believe I have found a solution. Allow me to explain.
