Gutter Guards Installed by Trusted Experts permalink
Gutter guards offer the ideal weather protection for your PA home permalink
Clogged gutters can be a problem for any homeowner, and overflow from the gutters can cause attic leaks and basement flooding as well as damage to siding, fascia boards, decks, and patios. Clogged gutters will also cause wood siding, sheathing, and trim to rot and require repairs.
Summit Roofing and Siding Contractors can help you eliminate these problems with gutter guard installation. Gutter guards are a protective covering placed over the gutter that allows water to enter but blocks leaves, twigs, and other debris. Installing gutter guards is a "once-and-done" upgrade that will protect your home from all kinds of moisture damage.
If you're interested in gutter guard installation for your home, call us today at 1-844-385-9661 or contact us online to get started with an inspection and estimate. We offer free estimates on all our services in Lansdale, Chalfont, Doylestown, and the nearby areas.
What's important when choosing a gutter guard? permalink
Gutter guards, which are also known as gutter covers, gutter screens, leaf filters, etc., are designed to prevent leaves, twigs, and other debris from accumulating in your gutters and impeding water flow. There are a number of options available, which is why it's important to ask these key questions about the gutter guard.
- Will the gutter guard filter out all kinds of materials? Generally, gutter guards will keep all but the smallest debris out of your gutter, though some screen or mesh-type gutter covers won't prevent small particles like plant seeds & granules from your roof shingles from accumulating in your gutters. The type of trees around your house should be considered when choosing gutter guards.
- Will roof shingles be damaged when the gutter guard is installed? Many gutter covers require lower courses of roof shingles to be pried up in order to install the gutter screen or cover. Our professional installers will ensure that this is done properly to avoid damage to the shingles.
- Can leaves accumulate on top of the gutter cover and block water drainage into the gutter? This can be a problem with many screen-type gutter covers, which is why we'll work with you to determine the best type of gutter guard for your home's location to give you ideal performance and limit maintenance and cleaning.
- Can the gutter cover come loose or be damaged easily? Like any other exterior part of your house, there is always the chance your gutters can be damaged by Mother Nature. However, we use high-quality products that will be durable and long-lasting under normal weather patterns.
- Will the leaf filter look good on my gutters? Gutter guards come in a wide variety of colors, meaning that we can match the guard to your existing gutter to give your home a seamless appearance.

Gutter Cleaning permalink
Keep your gutters working correctly with quality gutter cleaning permalink
While clogged gutters may seem like nothing more than a nuisance, they can actually have a serious impact on your home. Overflowing gutters can cause water damage to your roof and siding, and water will eventually pool next to your foundation and could cause leaks.
Heavy rain can cause clogged gutters to quickly fill with water and overflow, dumping water next to your foundation and possibly leading to a flooded basement or crawl space.

Seamless Aluminum Gutter Installation permalink
Aluminum gutters offer the perfect balance of affordability and performance permalink
If you're looking for new gutters for your home, you know how many options are available. Materials such as aluminum, steel, copper, and wood are all choices, along with various brands, styles, and attachments such as gutter guards.
Aluminum gutters are the most popular option on the market due to their blend of affordability, style, and durability. Summit Roofing and Siding Contractors installs quality seamless aluminum gutters that will give you the look you want for your home and the performance you need.
Seamless gutters provide a clean finished appearance while ensuring your home is protected from water damage.
The benefits of seamless aluminum gutters permalink
There are a number of reasons why many homeowners choose seamless aluminum gutters over other types of gutters. Consider the following advantages:
- Seamless lengths: Seamless gutters are custom cut to the length required, eliminating the need for seams that weaken the gutter and can lead to leaks.
- Durable, factory-applied finish: Aluminum gutters come with a factory-applied finish that is available in a wide variety of colors to match your home and/or roof. The finish won't wear off or require maintenance unless you have to touch up scratched areas. If you want something truly unique, they're easily painted any color.
- No rust or corrosion: Aluminum won't rust or corrode, making it truly a no-maintenance material.
- Speedy installation: Our crews can usually complete a seamless gutter installation on an average house in a single day, as long as the fascia boards along the eaves are in good condition.
- Affordability: Seamless aluminum gutters cost less than other types of gutters while providing equal performance and a great finished appearance.
Installing seamless aluminum gutters & downspouts permalink
1. From flat to formed: This K-profile gutter starts out as a flat sheet of aluminum. The gutter machine forms the profile, enabling the crew to create seamless gutters of any length. After the machine trims the gutter to the required length, workers attach end caps, then crimp and seal the caps to make the gutter watertight.
2. Brackets add strength: These cross braces are installed every 36 inches or so to stiffen the gutter. The brackets also provide attachment points for screwing the gutter to the fascia board during the gutter installation.
3. Fastened to the fascia: Driving a screw through each gutter bracket and into the fascia board anchors the gutter in place. Each gutter section is pitched so that water can drain toward the drop outlet for the downspout.
4. Down the drain: Downspouts are assembled from elbows and straight sections then screwed to the gutter drop outlets and to the wall of the house.
Copper Gutter and Downspout Installation permalink
Improve the look of your home with copper gutters & downspouts permalink
If you're looking for a unique finishing touch for your home, copper gutters are a great choice. Copper gutters will make your home stand out and provide you with a custom appearance while still offering the durability and performance you need from your gutters.
Copper gutters provide a unique look for your home that adds character and curb appeal.
Reasons to choose copper gutters for your home permalink
- No corrosion: Copper gutters and downspouts won't ever rust or corrode, providing excellent durability. Copper gutters naturally weather to a blue-green patina, but they can be cleaned to their original color or treated for a different color patina.
- Soldered joints: With other gutters, joints are sealed with special sealants that sometimes need to be renewed to prevent leaks. However, the joints in copper gutters are soldered together just like copper plumbing connections, so you never need to worry about leaks.
- Craftsmanship and quality: Copper gutters and downspouts definitely make a statement about craftsmanship and quality. Instead of blending into the roof structure like seamless aluminum gutters, copper gutters stand out, showing off their supports and their unique patina.
Installing copper gutters and downspouts permalink
1. Brackets: A technician screws gutter brackets to the fascia board, allowing for proper pitch.
2. End caps: After the gutter has been cut to length, end caps are soldered to create a watertight seal.
3. Seams: Long gutter runs are created by soldering separate sections at the seams.
4. Holes: Workers drill a hole in the gutter at each downspout location.
5. Downspouts: Wall brackets secure each downspout to the sidewall.
