  1. The size of your gutters. Depending on where you live, you might need bigger gutters. Living in Culpeper, Virginia it’s hard to tell because we get the four seasons, but when it rains it RAINS. So you might need gutters that hold more rain.
  2. The type of gutter. You have to choose the color, style, and material. We provide a wide variety of colors so that your gutters can match the look of your home. You can also choose from Aluminum and Copper!
  3. How big is the replacement? Are you replacing the whole system or just some parts?
  4. The condition of your fascia board. If your gutters are attached to your fascia board, you have to check its condition. If it’s damaged (peeling, warping, crumbling wood) you have to replace it before having your gutters installed.
  5. The roof. Since you are already up there, how is your roof looking? A damaged roof will need to be replaced and when that is done, the gutters need to come down. So it’s better to know that you need to have a roof replacement before replacing your gutters.

    Thanks for your comment about how you should make sure that your gutters are the right size for the amount of rain that you will be receiving. I like how you said that the material and style of it should match the look fo your home as well. My husband and I are considering professionals to install a better gutter to match the style of our house and that is a little bit larger for when it rains a lot.
