Gutter Installation FAQ
What are the benefits of seamless gutters over standard gutters?
The short answer is “no leaks.” Having one long run of gutters means one long and smooth path for the water to flow – versus standard gutters that are installed in shorter sections. Those shorter sections are bound together by seams, and water has the potential to leak into those seams, and then onto the ground around your home foundation, which can cause water damage unknown to you. Plus our seamless design means that the gutter is stronger as one solid piece than it would as smaller, pieced-together sections. With that integrity, our gutter systems are far more resistant to the expansion and contraction that happens with our Minnesota freezing and warming cycles, and strong winds have very little impact with the superior design of seamless gutters in Minneapolis and Twin Cities climates.
Will the gutters match my house?
Yes – in fact, the appearance is amazing. Storm Group Gutters will measure the exact length you need for precisely tailored custom lengths, AND will match the exact color scheme of your home’s fascia and soffit. A lot of lesser quality gutters are simply slapped up in a “close enough” fashion, without matching color, but Storm Group Gutters prides ourselves on precision designs and with hundreds of styles and colors that complement your home’s appearance to greatly enhance its’ curb appeal and home value.
What are Storm Group's seamless rain gutters made from?
We use durable aluminum gutter materials. Aluminum is the most popular type of gutter on the market today, since it combines strength with affordability. We have found that it can withstand the Minnesota elements better than vinyl, and won’t rust over time like traditional steel gutters in Minneapolis and the Twin Cities often-wet environment.
Can I buy gutters at a local hardware store?
While hardware stores may sell residential gutters, most are cheaper vinyl lengths that you’d need to cut to exact lengths yourself with specialty tools, set aside a block of time to climb a ladder and adhere your hand-cut gutters to your roof, hope that the seams don’t leak, and that they can withstand the often harsh Minnesota conditions or years to come. And in most cases, only a few colors are available. We’ve had customers that tried attempting gutter installation on their own, and confessed that they wish they’d have invested just a little more for higher quality, and to have it professionally installed, color-matched, and custom fit.
What colors are available for your seamless rain gutters?
Since we offer hundreds of styles and colors, there’s a very high probability that we have the color that perfectly blends with the rest of your home. And, since we also happen to be experts in siding and roofing, we can also install a custom-matched soffit and fascia to coordinate perfectly with the gutters. This visual “facelift” can really make your home the envy of the whole block.
How much does gutter installation cost?
Gutter cost depends on the custom lengths needed for your home. We do provide a no-obligation estimate site visit, so call us to arrange an easy appointment to give you an exact figure.
Is there a warranty for your gutters?
Yes – we believe that your gutter system should provide years of stress-free protection, and we offer a 20-year warranty on all Storm Group Gutters.
