In the long line of home exterior improvements, gutters and downspouts are not usually considered an exciting purchase. However, they serve one of the most important functions for your home—and in this regard remember that quality materials, design and expert installation are important.
Properly working gutters and downspouts direct rainwater away from your home’s foundation (think damp or flooded basements and crawlspaces). They keep moisture away from your home’s above grade walls (think rot). They also help prevent soil erosion around your home’s perimeter.
At PA Home Improvements, we also use only top quality gutters, made with premium-grade aluminum alloy and from proven manufacturers. Our gutters are hand rolled by experienced craftsmen from a heavy-duty .032 thickness to add value and long life to your installation. High performance and permanent sealants are also used on all miters, outlet cups and end caps. Functional benefits aside, gutters can also lend architectural detail to your home. In addition to traditional white, a wide-ranging palette of colors allows you to accent your exterior in new and appealing ways. It’s one more little detail PA Home Improvements helps you discover to bring out your home’s true personality!
