Sunshine Contracting installs seamless gutters meaning that there are no breaks in the guttering system and one continuous gutter is created to prevent leaks. Our gutters are made on site by our installers and can be installed as soon as the next day! The most common form of gutter installed by Sunshine Contracting are made of aluminum and referred to as the K-style, due to its shape resembling ogee molding when viewed from one end. This type of gutter is attached to the eaves of the house.
Downspouts Carry Water Away from Foundation
An integral part of a gutter system is the downspout through which water travels from the gutter to the ground. In some installations Sunshine Contracting performs, the downspouts are connected to the storm water system while in others the downspouts end at ground level where the water is diverted away from the building. Some homeowners, especially in a country setting, will collect the water and use it for outdoor watering, saving it for dry periods. Our installers will properly install your downspouts to eliminate at potential water damage to your home.
Homes with several nearby trees can collect leaves and other debris in the gutters, clogging them to the point where water cannot flow to the downspouts. This water build-up can allow the water to overflow the gutter and seep into the foundation or leak over the back of the gutter and into the homes’ eaves. Additionally, debris can clog the downspout and not allow the water to reach its intended destination.
