For the average house, installation will be done in one day. AA RainTex will arrive with a truck or trailer-mounted seamless gutter machine with the color you've selected.
Each piece is measured individually, and fabricated on-site with our seamless gutter machine to create a continuous piece of gutter that is custom sized. Our Englert 650E is state-of-the-art and will form 5" and 6" "K" style gutters. All end caps and outlets are sealed with professional-grade self leveling sealant. We use color-matched screws and touch up with matching paint. Each section is attached to the fascia using a level to ensure proper drainage.

Some companies use different methods of securing your new gutters. One is the spike and ferrule - a hollow tube is placed inside the gutter to keep it from bending, then a long spike is driven through the face of the gutter at the top, through the ferrule and into the wood fascia board. Unfortunately, a 50 ft. section of gutter will expand over 1" in length on a hot summer day. The expansion and contraction will work the spikes loose over time. It is not uncommon to see spikes that have pulled out over an inch away from the gutter face on an older home.

A better option is the inside bracket or hidden bracket which interlocks into the gutter for a cleaner look and is then attached to the roof every 30" under the shingles with screws for superior strength.
AA RainTex
uses only this method.

The last step is the installation of the downspouts, which will be located as needed according to the amount of roof runoff each section of gutter has to handle, as well as the where the best location is for directing the runoff away from the house.
