Gutters

 
Unlike companies that simply install gutters, CJS Aluminum takes your whole house into consideration.

We determine the best placement for gutters and downspouts so they won't interfere with your architectural design. We factor in the topography and site conditions for proper water discharge. Our installation designs ensure that downspouts follow the contours of the house so that they blend with your house and visually disappear! With our unique job setup techniques, we know before installation exactly how the system will look on your home. So we can adjust the system design for absolutely the best possible look.

 

Outstanding Material Quality

  • We use our own truck-mounted extruders to custom manufacture your gutter to your home.
  • We use a hidden hanger system to install your gutters. This system is very strong and durable -- designed to withstand the rigors of the harsh elements found with Florida's weather.
  • Unlike installers who use unsightly and ultimately leaky box miters, we use strip miters at gutter corners. This adds strength, ensures water integrity and enhances the visual appeal of the system.
  • The sealant we use on end-caps, outlets & miters is the best material available.
  • We also offer a wide range of colors.

Seamless

Seamless gutters are the most popular type today. Seventy-five percent of all gutters installed throughout the nation are Seamless Gutters. The biggest selling point is that they don't have any seams which could potentially leak.

The sections join only at inside and outside corners. Seamless gutters are usually formed from aluminum that has a baked-on finish, but they may be made from copper also. They are made with a special machine that's brought to your home. To ensure proper installation, check references, and drive by finished jobs. They are made with a special machine that's brought to your home and extruded onsite to custom fit your home.

Make Comparisons

Next you want to compare the price, the durability, maintenance requirements and warranties when buying gutters. The price of gutters range from about $2.25 to $30 per linear foot depending on the type, style and material you choose.

  • Aluminum gutters never rust, they are easy to paint, come in a variety of colors and are more affordable, which makes them more common. Aluminum gutters run $2.25 to $9 per linear foot.
  • Copper doesn't require any finish, doesn't rust and last longer. Copper is a high end product that provides a very prestigious design element. The price ranges from $16 to $30 per linear foot.
 

Gutter Protection Systems

 
 
A clogged gutter is like having no gutter at all. Gutters should be kept free of leaves and other debris so they don’t clog, overflow and cause damage to the exterior of your home as well as to the foundation. To avoid these problems a homeowner must make sure to clean gutters and downspouts at least twice a year. Installing a gutter protection system that filters leaves and debris from the water is a great solution for the homeowner who wants a break from the tedious job of cleaning.

THERE ARE SEVERAL TYPES OF GUTTER PROTECTION SYSTEMS SUCH AS:

Leaf screens or mesh
These metal coverings fit inside against the back of the gutter and across the top. They act like a strainer and filter out the leaves and debris, allowing only water to run through your gutters and out the downspout. They still may require a periodic cleaning because debris can build up on top of the screens.
Solid cover with side slots
This type of gutter guard relies on the principle of "water adhesion". The water enters the gutter through slots or small holes located underneath a lip or on the vertical side. The leaves and other large debris fall over the edge to the ground. Any tiny debris that remains in the water just flows through the gutter and out the downspout. The natural surface tension of water causes it to cling to the guard edge and flow into the slots.
 
 
Finally, check the warranty. For gutters and accessories, look for a warranty that runs at least a 20 year manufacturer warranty. For labor, some companies may offer as little as a one-year warranty. CJS offers 5 year labor warranty on gutter installation. Also be sure the contractor has license and insurance.
