WHAT IS A SEAMLESS GUTTER?
Protect your home and your business with J-Tech 5 & 6-inch aluminum and steel gutters. Seamless gutter installation is prevalent in just about every modern residential or commercial building to direct water flow and help maintain the foundation of your structure. When water drips directly from the roof to the foundation, your home may experience erosion or basement leakage. We also offer leaf guards to keep your gutters free from debris that can cause gutters to back up, leak, and overflow.
Before Seamless gutters had begun to grow in popularity, traditional seamed gutters are what you would find on almost every home. These gutter systems consisted of pieces that had to be assembled together with joints and hinges. This caused many problems for homeowners because having multiple gutter parts put together would leave room for corrosion and leaks to develop over time. If a gutter becomes clogged, it’s easy enough to clean them with a ladder and a pair of gloves. However, if your gutters become cracked or damaged in any way, you’ll need to start looking into a gutter replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you install gutter guards?
Even for those without much experience, installing gutter guards will usually take less than a day. Gutter guards are attached to the gutter via a locking mechanism that usually snap into place along the sides of the gutter. If you work with J-Tech, gutter guards can be added while you are installing new gutters.
Can I install gutters myself?
Oftentimes, gutters are installed by professionals, but if you’d like to learn, they can be installed by any homeowner in a couple of days. After cutting your gutters to length, start by installing fascia brackets along the installation area. Next, it’s time to start screwing in the gutters. We recommend attaching the end caps before the actual gutters, but be sure to connect the downspout last, once everything else is in place.
What size gutter do I need for gutter installation?
5 inch seamless gutters are the most popular size of gutters, but they aren’t one size fits all. Depending on the size of your roof, you may need to install 6 inch or even 7 gutters, which will accommodate more water at once. For more complex roofs, installing gutters in a combination of sizes is a great solution.
