5″ Aluminum or steel GUTTERS
Seamless/Continuous gutters has been standard gutter used in Alberta for decades. They come in a number of colors to match the soffit and fascia on your home. We would love to hear from you and become your Peace of Mind gutter company.
What sets our gutter install apart from others?
Heavy duty hangers - The hangers we use are the strongest hangers we have found. They have a wide front which helps grab more surface area on the front of the gutter which gives the gutter more strength. We always mount our hangers underneath the drip edge to prevent any water from wicking behind the gutter.
Better sealants - We use Shell Tixophalte. This is a bitumen based sealant. The sealant does not harden over time and allows for movement. It is non toxic and can be applied in wet conditions or underwater which allows us to install in any weather.
Better Corner installs - We pride ourselves in installing the nicest, strongest corner that we can. We fold the flaps to the inside of the gutter to create a strong, beautiful corner.
Incorporation of "GUTTER CORNER FIX" product - Our "Gutter corner fix" product is an optional flexible PVC corner insert we can include with our 5" aluminum and steel jobs. This is a permanent fix and will prevent your corners from leaking and stop the reoccurring sealant maintenance which would otherwise be required. The corner insert allows for thermal movement and is sealed down with special double sided tape and sealant. See our Gutter Corner Fix page in the menu to learn more about this great product.
Proper slope and install - We don't cut corners when it comes to installs. We do site surveys, consult with the customer, and take our time on the job. Getting your slopes and outlet locations right the first time is pivotal to proper long term rain water protection for your home.
Colors - We generally have no problem finding the color you love. Our manufacturers have a wide assortment of aluminum and steel colors to choose from.
Leaf Screens - We offer optional leaf screens that are used to prevent leaves and debris from falling into the gutter.
5" Residential Gutter
The 5” residential gutter is the most common gutter in the Alberta market. It is economical and available in steel or aluminum.
The above picture show you two different styles of hangers that are out on the market. At Westeco gutters we prefer to use the top hanger shown which is a screw in style that will gave a lot more strength/durability long term.
