Your rain gutters have an important job to do – keeping water out of your home. If yours are broken, sagging or split, call Victory Improvement Professionals for durable replacements.
If you have a lot of trees on your property, you know the mess they can cause. Leaves, acorns, twigs and more can quickly fill up the rain gutters around your roof. When they’re filled, water won’t be channeled away as effectively. It will create a sodden mess that holds moisture against roof edges and causes ponding around your foundation. The weight of ice dams can also cause cracks and sagging.
We have over two decades of experience installing new rain gutters and downspouts. Let us show you the many choices of materials and profiles that will help prevent clogs and blend perfectly with your home’s exterior.
How Rain Gutters Protect
Typically made of treated metal or vinyl, these channels can prevent water from damaging your property in many ways. Here are the most common problems:
Roof damage – Clogged rain gutters don’t allow tree debris to escape. If clogs are allowed to build up, they can cause rot to the roof shingles, decking and rafters. Water that gets under your roof edges can also leak behind walls.
Basement leaks – Downspouts that are too close to the foundation allow water to pool. This can leak into the basement or erode the foundation. Structural damage is very expensive to fix. We can extend and angle yours to the proper extent.
Mold and mildew – Moisture that gets into building materials creates the perfect breeding environment for mold. This not only creates damage and bad odors; the spores can spread through your ductwork, potentially causing breathing problems.
Termites – Any damp building materials are a gourmet feast for wood-damaging insects.
The Right SolutionMany people don’t realize that rain gutters can be undersized. The minimum today is 5 inches. Six inches give even better performance, and that is what we typically recommend. The right width will depend on your roof slope, the number of trees that overhang and your budget. When you work with us, you can expect competitive prices, a written estimate, perfect cleanup and on-time performance.
Whether you need them installed alone or as part of a roof replacement, we’ll work within your cost allowance to install quality replacements. They will be hung correctly for maximum strength without any damage to your roof.
What Type is Right for You?Conventional gutters – These are the most affordable solution. They come in pre-cut segments of aluminum, rust-resistant steel or vinyl that are quickly joined together on-site.
Seamless – This relatively new type is made of aluminum and custom-fabricated on-site using special machinery. While more expensive, they prevent the problem of debris catching on seams. No joints also gives water fewer places to collect.
Leaf-guards – Rain gutters are designed to channel water down and away from the home. Various guards and screens reduce the amount of debris that gets in. Some types have a bull-nose shape that keeps out almost all solid matter.

An Important InvestmentWe know your home is very important to you. We also know that problems you don’t think about can be causing structural problems right now. Rain gutters is one of them. Most of us hate to clean them. Wider, seamless and leaf-guard styles will help with this task tremendously or eliminate it altogether. If you are going to invest in asphalt roofing, siding or other exterior home improvements, make a new gutter system part of the plan. This is usually a cost-effective project that is quick to do and yields huge benefits.
