Understanding Your Gutter Needs
At Valentine Roofing, we know that every home is unique, so we offer different options to suit your specific needs. Most homes in the Pacific Northwest feature 5-inch gutter systems as standard. Some homeowners have started upgrading to a 6-inch system because it can handle up to 40% more water flow than its smaller counterpart, specifically for their metal roofs. An additional benefit to a 6-inch rain gutter system is the oversized downspout which allows for more debris to pass through without causing clogs. Whether you prefer our sleek 5-inch or 6-inch systems, we have the perfect solution. 

Signs You Might Need New Gutters
A few signs that you might need new gutters include rotting fascia boards or soffit, rust on your gutters, sagging gutters, cracked or peeling paint, breaking at different seams, pulling away at the roofline, or fallen nails or fasteners. Gutters can last from 20 - 50 years, so you may be due for new gutters if you are past the gutters’ lifespan.

Factoring in Roof Pitch
The pitch of your roof plays a crucial role in determining the size and capacity of your gutters. Steeper roofs collect more rainwater, necessitating larger troughs to manage runoff without overflowing. Fortunately, our team of experts is well-versed in assessing roof pitch and recommending the ideal gutter size for optimal performance. 

Precision Installation Every Time
At Valentine Roofing, we take pride in our attention to detail. From custom-punching holes in the spout of our gutters to providing specific end caps and specialized metal sealants, we ensure that every aspect of your gutter installation is tailored to perfection. Our ability to custom-make miters for corners and bend various sides ensures a seamless fit, enhancing your home's aesthetics and functionality.

Beauty That Lasts
With Valentine Roofing, you can choose from a wide range of colors to complement your home's exterior. Our gutters feature an enamel finish that protects against corrosion from copper, zinc, and other chemicals, ensuring that they retain their beauty for years to come. Baked-on enamel finishes on your new gutters will add the perfect accent to your beautiful home and are available in various color choices. Whether you prefer classic white, sleek black, warm musket brown, serene blue, or off-white/almond tones, we have the perfect hue to elevate your curb appeal.

Built to Last
Our commitment to quality doesn't end with installation. Our gutters are equipped with internal hangers that clip securely to the gutters without being visible from the ground for a seamless and secure fastening system, providing a fastening system that withstands the test of time. Hidden fasteners, also called hidden hangers, are the most popular way to install gutters. With this system, the gutter is fastened directly to the fascia. Hidden fasteners are used every 16 to 24 inches on average and give the gutter its strength and support. Aptly named, hidden fasteners are concealed inside the gutters and are not visible from the ground. Seamless gutters are also easier to maintain, last longer, and return as much as 83% to a homeowner in added home value. With Valentine Roofing, you can rest assured knowing that your investment is protected by industry-leading durability and craftsmanship. 

Gutter Cost Factors
The cost of new gutters varies greatly depending on the size of the house, linear feet, configuration, gutter style, and the number of stories, corners, and downspouts. There also may be accessories added like a clean-out box with a mesh basket or screens that may be added to the materials. Average gutter prices in 2024 are $1169 - $3495 and may vary depending on the above factors.

When To Upgrade Gutters
Gutters are best installed during a new roof installation. This ensures the right flashings are in place before a gutter installation, improving the effectiveness of the roof system as a whole. Old gutters with new roofs may not be able to keep up with the increased water runoff. Most gutters only last 10-20 years depending on the type of gutter, material, and workmanship. If you are replacing your roof or have not gotten new gutters within the last 20 years, it is probably time to replace your rain gutters.

Why Avoid Gutter Guards
In the Pacific Northwest, we recommend not installing gutter guards because of pine needles, leaves, dirt, dust, and debris that may build up and clog your gutters. Algae may also grow and build up, causing water to overflow on your home’s foundation.
