Protective Investment in Your Structure
Part of protecting a structure against outside elements is directing precipitation away from areas susceptible to water damage. Well-installed gutters can prevent structural issues and even add significant curb appeal. From minor repair to full installation, PI can take care of your gutter needs.
Seamless rain gutters make up almost 80% of all rain gutters installed in the U.S. This popular type of rain gutter is made at your home for a perfectly fit to your eaves. Using seamless prevents breaks in conventional gutters of every 10 ft and, more important, prevents leaks. Our “Factory on Wheels” comes right to your home.
Our experienced gutter technicians measure your home and manufacture each rain gutter to perfectly fit each piece needed. For example, if the back of your home is 80 ft across, we will make one 80 ft piece of pre-painted aluminum gutter.
Seamless Aluminum Rain Gutters come in different sizes, weights and colors. In areas that get a lot of snow, a heavy weight (.032″) aluminum is used. This prevents warping by snow and ice.
Across those regions of our country where snow and ice is not a factor, lighter weight (.027″) aluminum is used. Lighter weights also represent a cost savings to you.
Gutter Guards – Gutter Guards for your rain gutters will protect your home from the worries of clogged gutters and water damage. Gutter protection keeps leaves and debris out of your gutters. Doing so not only improves the functionality of your gutters, but also keep you safe off the ladder.
Gutter protection protects more than just rain gutters; it protects you, your home, and your loved ones. Cleaning out rain gutters is the most dangerous job around the home, and also one of the dirtiest. What truly is nastiest job around the house?
Most people agree gutter cleaning is either number 1 or 2 or the list of things they wish they never had to do again. In fact every year hundreds of homeowners are killed from falls while cleaning out their gutters. Hundreds more are paralyzed. While still thousands more are injured… and the gutters still need to be cleaned year after year.
Clogged gutters overflow and can damage your home’s foundation and ruin your lawn and landscape. Clogged gutters can lead to:
- Damaged wood fascia board
- Roof damage
- Cracked, leaking and deteriorating foundation walls
- Soil erosion
- Interior water seepage
- Plant kill
- Damp areas that promote insect infestation on the exterior and interior of your home
A clogged gutter also serves as a breeding ground for insects including the West Nile Virus carrying mosquito. Clean gutters are the obvious solution, but keeping them clean year after year can be messy, costly and dangerous.

Why do I need gutters?
- Clogged or leaky gutters are one of the biggest causes of basement leaks, mold and other foundation problems, standing water in gutters is one of the common places mosquitos breed.
- Damaged fascia, soffit, or outside wall. Leaky gutters can cause damage to a house’s structural integrity by allowing water to damage the fascia, soffit, or wood framing of the house.
- Landscape washout. Many homeowners have experienced damaged landscaping caused by gutter problems.
- Undermined driveways, patios, and walkways. Excess water flowing into the ground near the house can erode the dirt directly beneath driveways, patios, and walkways. As the dirt is washed away, the driveway, patio, or walkway is no longer fully supported and can settle, crack, or even collapse. If you have already experienced this type of damage, fix the gutter or downspout problem before replacing or repairing the driveway, patio, or walkway.
When should I replace my gutters?
If you have steel or vinyl gutters, you will need to replace them eventually. How you tolerate maintenance on you home will determine when you should replace the gutter.
If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want to be bothered with the time and money repairs demand, you should replace your gutters at the first signs of rust. Rust will often show up as little orange speckles that show through the paint, rusty colored stains at the end of the downspouts, or at gutter seams that are separated and leaking. Gutters rust from the inside out. When they begin to show rusting on the outside, the inside is rusting through. Often, however, because of standing water, the gutter may need to be repaired in just one or two areas.
What type of gutters should I get?
First of all, you must ensure that the gutters you are purchasing will be durable and that they come with a warranty that proves it. We recommend seamless aluminum gutters and downspouts, these are thick enough to be durable in the event of being hit by tree branches; seamless gutters is the keyword here, seams often begin to leak over time. With a seamless gutter manufactured on site with our gutter truck, you’ll get continuous runs of gutter so that there won’t be glued or caulked seams in the middle.
