Residential Rain Gutters Austin
Your home in Austin is an investment no matter how you look at it. Your home will either appreciate or depreciate depending on many factors which include how well the home was maintained and this includes your gutter system.
Oftentimes, homeowner’s tend to kick the can down the road when it comes to their Residential Rain Gutters in Austin because they think they will get to it before something bad happens. Sadly, that is often a costly gamble. Water damage can cost you ten of thousands in damages if left untreated.
Adding seamless gutters to your home can not only help with the aesthetic curb appeal, it can help to prevent water damage as well. As small investment today can payoff big down the line.
Also when properly maintained they can last for many years to come so you only need to do this once every few decades depending on the type you select.
So as you can see, not only will you be able to prevent possible damage, much of your investment can be recouped in the form of increased home values.
Again it goes back to a properly maintained home. A home with seamless, a.k.a. contiguous, rain gutters installed and operational is a much better maintained home than one without gutters.
Therefore it has a higher perceived value to many buyers. They also look at it as one less thing they will have to take care of themselves should they invest in purchasing your home.

Metal Types of Residential Gutters – Aluminum, Steel, Galvanized Steel, Galvanized Aluminum (Galvalume) and Copper Rain Gutters
Although there are other types of rain gutters available for the home such as vinyl and even wood, we will focus on the most popular and cost efficient gutters that we offer to our residential customers in Austin Texas. The type of metal you choose will have a bearing on the cost to put gutters on the house.
Aluminum Seamless Rain Gutters
Aluminum Rain Gutters
The most popular and cost efficient residential gutters that we offer for the home are the Aluminum Seamless Rain Gutters. Seamless aluminum gutters are made on site at your home from a large spool of metal that is then formed into the aluminium guttering.
Seamless gutters have helped to avoid the costly repairs and maintenance required for the old style of gutters that were done in small sections. These sections had a tendency to leak at the seams of your aluminum gutter installation causing them to need to be repaired or replaced.
As far as cost efficiency goes, the Aluminum Rain Gutters are very cost effective and can last upwards of 20 years when properly maintained so they are the best choice for many Texas homeowners.

Galvalume Seamless Rain Gutters
What are Galvalume Rain Gutters? Well, they are simply steel gutters that have a coating of 55% aluminum, 43% zinc and 1.6% silicon. It is applied to a steel sheet by a hot-dipping process which is then formed into seamless gutters by a professional rain gutter installation company.
This design results in a strong and durable metal rain gutter that has a proven track record of long-term resistance to corrosion. The added resistance helps to extend the lifespan of these types of rain gutters so that they can last for 40-80 years on average as long as they are properly maintained.
The unique Galvalume metal type finish gives the resulting rain gutters a matte, gun-metal look that doesn’t fade in the weather elements like many of the other material types. This is another thing that help to make these gutters a very appealing choice for many Austin homeowners.

Gutter Style Types: K-Style and Half Round Style
As you can see below there are two main style types of gutters that change the look and layout of the gutters quite a bit between the two different styles. We’ll cover the differences between the two below so you can make an informed decision.
Although most older and many new homes have K-Style gutters installed, the Half round style of gutters are increasing in popularity especially among the more modern styled homes and businesses of today.
If after reading the differences you still aren’t sure which is right for you, don’t worry just call us for help. We offer FREE estimates and can help you get the right style of gutter for your home in Austin or surrounding areas.
K-Style Seamless Gutter
K-Style Seamless Rain Gutters

K-style gutters are flat on one side so they mount easily to the fascia of even modern styled homes with sharp inclined roofs and other sharp angles which have to be worked around when installing your gutters.
Furthermore this allows for these types of gutters to be installed without as many brackets and other accessories as is required by the half round style of gutters.
Also let’s not forget the vast number of options available for these types of rain gutters. Between traditional and seamless gutters and all the metal and color options, there is a huge amount of variety allowing you to easily find the right one for your home.

Half Round Style Gutters
Half Round Style Gutters
Although there was a time when k-style gutters ruled the roost and were the most desired type of gutter by most home and business owners but times are changing. Enter the Half Round Style Gutter.
Rather than homeowners almost exclusively choosing K-style, many home and business owners are now getting Half Round Style Gutters installed and this number is increasing with no signs of slowing at this time.
There are a few reasons for this upswing in the popularity of the half round gutter that we’ll go over.
First we have appearance. These types of gutters have really clean lines so they look fantastic on luxury high end homes as well as a home with unusual architecture. These types of gutters also blend well with most commercial businesses because of their clean lines.
Second is functionality. Because of the clean and smooth design, half round rain gutters tend to have less issues with water collecting in any of the sharp angles of the other style which can lead to corrosion and other issues.
Third is less maintenance. Those sharp angles can also lead to debris build-up which is much less likely to occur with the Half Round Gutters. This allows for less clogs which means less cleanings being needed so there is less maintenance.
As a result of these benefits more people are finding that the half round style of rain gutter is really going to be the best choice for their home or business.

What is the Difference Between Gutters and Downspouts?
Downspouts are designed to do one thing alone and that is to convey all of the water collected by the metal guttering system away from the home into the designated drain area. Downspouts come in a few different styles but they all have the same one and only function as mentioned above.
You can decide to go with rectangular downspouts, plain round downspouts or round corrugated downspouts. Some systems also come with built-in downspouts.
