At Studio Aluminum, we take pride in installing high-quality A+ Seamless Gutters on every one of our installations. A seamless gutter is a straight piece of gutter without seams, with heavy-duty brackets installed. A straight piece of gutter can be made any length and is extruded from a special forming machine which is mounted inside our trucks.
There are several factors that go into the pricing of an eavestrough installation. These include the materials being used (with PVC and vinyl being at the bottom end to aluminum at the top end), the amount of labour involved, and the cost for removal of old eaves and clean-up. Add-ons such as downspout screens will also increase the cost.

There are a variety of causes for eavestrough leaks. Gutter alignment and improper downspout placement can cause severe leaks. When roof shingles are short, water may leak between the gutter and the fascia, making it appear that the gutter is leaking the answer is drip edge. If a corner leaks, it’s the most serious leak, and its best to invest in a new seamless system with larger downspouts and put to rest the leaky old gutters.
Typically aluminum eavestroughs will last 20 to 25 years with correct professional installation.

Are the existing downpipes falling off, leaking showing signs of corrosion? Or are the straps not properly secured? Are pipes small 2-inch downspouts? If any of these symptoms are noticed, we strongly recommend a new downspout installation or repair.
While it is safe to pressure wash soffits and fascia, there are a few things that you should be aware of before doing so. Avoid using too high a pressure around your attic as water could seep through and cause damage. You should also be careful when using a ladder and watch for any falling debris.
Because aluminum soffits are non-porous, they are not very good at holding paint. If you do wish to paint them, you should first treat them with an acidic primer formulated for metal surfaces.
Fascia boards can rot when water compromises their integrity. This can happen when the drip edge and gutters have not been properly installed or when water accumulates within other areas of the house.
While they are more expensive than traditional gutters, many homeowners find the additional cost of seamless gutters to be well worth it. Not only are they easier for homeowners to maintain, but they can also help increase the value of a home and help protect the roof from rot and damage to the shingles.
Aluminum and vinyl siding both have their pros and cons. Some people like the appearance of vinyl siding better than the appearance of aluminum. Vinyl siding is also less prone to denting and making “pinging” sounds in the wind or when it expands in the hot sun.
Aluminum, on other hand, is better suited toward cold climates. Vinyl can become brittle and crack in very cold weather and when this happens water can get through and cause damage to the home. Aluminum siding is also a much better insulator than vinyl and can help homeowners save significantly on their utility bills.
Although it is technically possible to put vinyl siding over aluminum siding, it is not always a good idea. Removing siding before you put on new siding allows the contractor to inspect for and repair any damage to the underlying wall before adding new siding.
If you do decide to add vinyl siding over aluminum siding, make sure you choose a contractor with the expertise to make the home look uniform.
Vinyl siding is made to last for a very long time. Warrantees range anywhere from 20-40 years.
