The Best Gutter Systems For Pittsburgh Residents


Pittsburgh Gutter system

People often underestimate the importance of gutters in your home. It’s easy to understand why, when there’s not much rain there’s really no use for them. However, when the rain comes pouring down you want to be sure that your gutters are in excellent working condition.

The importance of quality, professionally installed gutters cannot be overstated. They are vital for enhancing smooth water run-off, thereby preventing any accumulation of moisture and debris on the roof’s surface, which is often the beginning of more serious roofing problems.

Using a variety of materials from premier manufacturers in the industry, Home Genius installs gutters that fit your home’s needs. Our installation process is a quick and seamless gutter, while the products we   provide weather protection and incredible durability – which is essential in a place like Pittsburgh.

Best Gutter Types for Pittsburgh Residents

Pittsburgh experiences hot and humid weather during the city’s summer months. Everything is green and the city is beautiful. December to February is Pittsburgh’s snowy and colder months. While locals and tourists alike revel in the beautiful, white snow, the roofs and gutters of Pittsburgh residents can take quite the pounding by the downpour.

When it comes to dealing with snow and the gutter issues related to snow, you want a strong and sturdy gutter than can survive the onslaught of the weather. The best gutter material during this type of weather is aluminum, steel and zinc.

Aluminum Gutters

Aluminum gutters are easily one of the most popular gutter types in Pittsburgh and across the US. It is definitely one of the most requested types with Pittsburgh clients. This is due to its strength and durability when it comes to holding large volumes and withstanding heavy snow loads.

Steel Gutters

Equally as durable as aluminum, steel gutters are also a great option for your home’s gutter system. They are better at resisting dents caused by hail and falling objects and are super resistant to rust. For these extra benefits though, they will come at a higher cost than most other gutter types.

Zinc Gutters

Zinc gutters are made up of 99% zinc with minor amounts of copper and titanium. Much like the aluminum and steel gutters, zinc gutters are incredibly strong and durable. But what makes zinc gutters great is that as the gutter weathers down, a protective layer of patina forms over the structure. The patina has anti-corrosive properties that protect the gutter from further damage. The zinc gutter has a much longer lifespan than other gutter systems and requires minimal maintenance.

Half-Round Gutter

Half-round gutters, as the name suggests, is a semi-circular gutter design. The design allows snow to move to the middle of the gutter, channeling it down the gutter system for disposal. The half-round gutter design used with zinc further assists the movement of the snow through the gutter system.

K-Style 30 Degree Gutter

The K-style gutter has a flat bottom and curved sides. This design prevents runoff from occurring and ruining the walls of your home. Made from aluminum, the K-Style is about 5 inches wide which allows a decent flow of snow through your gutter system.

“I’m very impressed with Home Genius Exteriors. From the sales opportunity, to ordering, and finally execution everything was smooth sailing. Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”
