Englert…Where Ideas Materialize:
When it comes to rainware, seamless gutters and gutter protection systems, nobody does it better. The first to sell seamless gutter machines, painted coil stock and other gutter accessories to independent contractors, Englert has been the dominant name in seamless gutters for almost 40 years.
Aluminum, Galvalume® and galvanized coils are available in a wide array of colors with both sides painted in different colors to reduce a gutter contractor’s inventory. Englert offers a full service/single source opportunity to our gutter contractors, including gutter machine technicians, parts, technical support and on-site repairs.
The Purpose of Guttering Systems…
The purpose of guttering systems is to collect water (rain) from the roofing area and disperse the water away from your home. Properly configured downspouts (leaders, drain pipes) are very essential.
A faulty guttering system can contribute to damage to Soffit & Fascia, Shingles, Building Foundations, Driveways, Walkways, Landscaping.
Guttering systems require maintenance to insure protection for your home. Make sure your gutters are free from debris, leaves, granules from shingles, birds nest. The extreme exposure to nature can also cause sealant failures. Snow & Ice can loosen fasteners and should be repaired immediately to prevent costly repairs.
(We always recommend a professional for maintaining your Guttering System)
Types of Seamless Gutters…
There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl, copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10’ lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings, each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. Another alternative well worth considering is the installation of seamless aluminum gutters. Seamless gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional contractor.
The term seamless gutters can be confusing because there are seams in the system. The seams are only at the corners and downspout outlets.These joints are fastened more securely and sealed for stability and leak resistance. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous which makes them both strong and visually more appealing.
