Dark Bronze Gutters And Leaders
Dark Bronze Gutters And Leaders, custom installed in Bernardsville, NJ. At this home, the previous contractor had not taken into consideration where the bulk of the water flow would fall in the event of rain or snow. This resulted in an uneven distribution of water flowing down the house and because of this, caused enormous amounts of overflow. Our main job was to go in and fix the entire system by balancing the water distribution. We did this in a few ways. We first upgraded the existing 3″x 4″ leaders that had an outlet size of 2″x 3″. We replaced them with 3″x 4″ leaders with outlets of 3″x 4″, making a slight oval shape. This helped increase the rate of water that could be safely transported to the ground. We also changed the location of the leaders to shift the bulk of the water flow. Even a slight adjustment can make an enormous difference on the water distribution.
Thinking about the distribution of water on a rainy day is a simple thought that the previous installers didn’t care enough to consider. With over 25 years of experience, we know exactly how to set up your gutter system to perfectly fit the needs of your home.
This color was chosen by the homeowner in order to match the dark bronze standing seam roof. The bronze gutters and leaders compliment the roof well. We removed the Gutter Helmet at the customer’s request due to overflow, as she had no luck with this product.
These six inch seamless K style bronze gutters and leaders were a great choice for this home. The 6″ K style can hold a large volume of water that is perfect for areas with heavier rain or snowfall. Ask us if this choice of gutter is right for you!
