What’s The Best Company For Replacement Gutters?
Gutter Cover KC is known for Advantage Gutter Guard ®. But what if you are just looking to replace gutters? Is Gutter Cover Kansas City any different than other guttering companies? Does it matter who installs your gutters?
Notice what the experts at HGTV say in their blog article Maximum Value Home Exterior Projects: Gutters:
“‘One of the worst things you can do,’ according to appraisal expert Leslie Sellers, president of the Appraisal Institute, ‘is a poor job on gutter installation.’ An improperly functioning gutter system will risk leaks that can cause a huge amount of permanent water damage to your home’s exterior and foundation.”
We agree! Gutters are one of the most important systems on a home. If it is not working properly expensive problems arise. Water not channeled away from your home can cause wood rot, mold, water in the basement, damaged siding and stucco and the most costly – cracks and settling in your foundation. You need an expert to install your replacement gutters!

Gutter Replacement FAQ
How big do my replacement gutters need to be?
Whether you need 5 inch or 6 inch gutters is determined by the amount of water volume produced by your roof and how far you need to move that volume of water to the nearest downspout.
Some homes only need a 5 inch gutter system. If you have a very large house with a steep roof and many valleys dumping rainwater into short runs of gutters you will need 6 inch gutters. Since its better safe than sorry, and the price difference is minimal, we often recommend 6 inch gutters when doing a full home gutter replacement.
How many downspouts do I need?
A good rule of thumb is for every 35-50 feet of gutter you need one downspout. Larger downspouts will increase the water volume capacity of each downspout. One square inch of outlet for every 100 square feet of roof is the industry recommendation.
Where should downspouts be placed?
The water needs to have a positive flow away from your house to protect the foundation and keep water infiltration out of your basement. This can be accomplished by extensions on your downspouts – splash blocks – underground or French drains.
When do I know it is time to replace my gutters?
Inspect your gutters yearly for: Rust – Leaks – Loose Downspouts – Proper Drainage. If your gutters are pulled loose and rusty it may be time to replace them. If no rust is evident they just may need to be repaired.
Are seamless gutters the best?
Seamless gutters are the best solution. Gutters with seams typically leak at every seam creating the need to put sealant in them every couple of years. It is almost impossible to get them to drain completely.
