Gutters

Seamless Guttering

The best gutter installations last for decades. Gutters serve an important function for your home—and in this regard remember that quality materials, design and expert installation are very important.

Water flows downhill and will seek any and all entry points in the building envelope. The first line of defense against unwanted gravity driven water is to design for water to drain away from the building. Properly working gutters and downspouts will help direct rainwater away from your home’s foundation (think damp or flooded basements and crawlspaces). Gutters also help direct moisture away from your home’s foundation, exterior trim, landscaping and erosion prone areas.

We will provide you with a careful assessment based on the topography of your lot, the structure of your home and its roofline, and drainage needs.

We also use only top quality gutter materials, made with premium-grade aluminum alloy from proven manufacturers. Our gutter is custom measured and cut precisely by trained and experienced craftsmen from a standard .027 thickness to add value and long life to your installation. We also offer heavy duty .032 thickness for commercial installations or for areas that need additional strength. Geocel 2320 Construction Tripolymer Gutter Sealant is used on all miters, outlet cups and end caps. Functional benefits aside, gutters can also lend architectural detail to your home. In addition to traditional white, a wide-ranging palette of colors allows you to accent your exterior in new and appealing ways.

Copper Gutters

Copper guttering has long been considered the ultimate in guttering and for good reason. There are several reasons to use copper gutters on a home, beyond the aesthetic and elegant look it adds. Copper is very corrosion-resistant. It is not uncommon for copper gutters to have a lifespan of 60 to 90 years or triple that of aluminum. Copper guttering are mostly utilized in their natural, unfinished state allowing the copper to develop its own distinctive, protective patina throughout many years.. Copper’s protective patina gives it the ability to ward off corrosion, durability and very long life. Copper patina varies by climate but generally copper starts out a bright salmon copper and gradually turns brown, then shades of reddish brown, grayish brown, greenish brown then finally a variegated light pastel green after 25 some years. The rich changing earth tone color palette is one of the prized features of copper.

Underground Drainage Systems

Clemens Home Solutions can custom design and install underground drain pipe systems for your down spouts to move water away from your foundation or from high traffic areas.  We use 4” PVC pipe with pop-up emitters

Maintenance Program

This service can help prevent water damage to your home. An improperly installed or maintained gutter system can cause serious and expensive damage. Gutters are designed to handle their own weight and the weight of the water as it is draining. When leaves and debris clog your gutters, water can no longer drain properly and your gutter system will begin to fail. If left unattended the mix of water and leaves will begin to decompose leaving very fertile soil. In the winter this water and debris mixture will freeze and expand, causing extra pressure on the lip of the gutter and hangers leading to ultimate failure. It’s this process that will weaken your gutter system causing it to pull away from your house and cause damage to fascia and soffit systems.  All gutters should be inspected periodically to ensure optimal performance.

Clemens Home Solutions has a 7-point maintenance program that will help you protect your home from damaged cause by clogged gutters.
