Other Gutter Replacement Systems
Straight Face Gutters
Straight faced gutter is a custom 6″ seamless profile. Over the last few years a lot of our customers have made requests for something “different” than the traditional OGEE gutter profile. Many of the requests consisted of wanting a profile without curves and only straight lines. We bought this machine in January of 2011 due to this demand and have been very pleased with the response from our customers. It is typically chosen for more modern homes with straight lines, but looks great on just about any home. The only difference between this profile and the OGEE profile is the “look”. This profile can be done in any of the aluminum color choices, copper, galvalume, or galvanized. Read More…
OGEE gutters represent the Standard in seamless rain gutters.
Ever hear people in the gutter industry refer to gutters as ‘K-style’ or ‘OGEE’ gutters and wondered what that meant? Well, OGEE is simply a term that refers to any architectural design that incorporates a double curve with the shape of an elongated ‘S’. Viewed from the side, ‘OGEE’ gutters have an elongated ‘S’ incorporated into the front face design. K-style gutters are simply ogee gutters. In the U.S., the most common gutters are five-inch or six-inch (measured front to back at the widest point) K-style gutters.
Half Round Gutters
Whether your project is to renovate a historical property, or to build a new structure with a classic feel, half round gutters are probably what your project calls for. The half round profile is a 6″ gutter from front to back and is 3″ deep. It can be installed with internal hangers or external hangers that the gutter sits inside of. When it comes to half round the options are endless due to the many different hangers and components available. It comes in 20′ sections and can be done in any of the color selections or materials available just like OGEE and Straight Face.
E-Z-Step Down, small hole steel powder coated screens spring action allows it to be easily installed into the gutter and not disturb the shingles. E-Z-Step Down installs quickly and easily. It’s small hole design keeps 99% of debris out of the gutter while the other 1% is small enough to wash through the downspouts. Designed with a “dogleg” back edge so when installed, the screen contacts the shingles and closes the void under the shingles so debris can’t collect there. E-Z-Step Down is designed with three 90 degree “steps” at the front for great strength and to snap under the gutter hem forcing the water to track into the gutter helping eliminate water streaks across the gutter.

A downspout, downpipe or leader is a vertical pipe for carrying rainwater from a rain gutter to ground level. There the water is directed away from the building’s foundation and to a sewer, rainwater harvesting, or let into the ground through seepage.
We typically use the standard rectangular 3″x4″ downspouts or 4″ round downspouts. There are other options such as 5″ round, 4″x5″, or custom commercial box downspout available when the situation should arise. The other option is to install a Rain Chain in the place of a downspout. Read More…
