Gutters & Gutter Protection

New Jersey Gutter Protection & Rain Gutters

What do you need to know about New Jersey gutter protection and rain gutters? The most common gutter type for residential use is called the K gutter. It is available in 5″ and 6″ sizes. The 5″ size is generally used on residential applications while the 6″ size is more frequently for commercial use. Gutters come in different gauges:
  • Lightweight .025 gauge is used by the most budget minded contractors. Lightweight gutters often wrinkle and bow.
  • Medium weight .027 gauge is used mostly by builders and some remodeler’s to keep costs down but can be damaged easily by ladders and trees.
  • Heavy duty .032 gauge is used when you want maximum strength and durability.

Gutter attachment methods:

  • Spike and ferrule hangers tend to pull out of the wood fascia over time which can cause the gutters to sag and fall off during storms with heavy wind.
  • Outside hangers are used usually on older homes where there is no fascia board. The hangers wrap around the gutters and are nailed under the roof shingles.
  • Hidden hangers are the best; they interlock into the center of the gutter and are screwed, not nailed, into the fascia board.

At Markey Windows, Doors, & More, we only use hidden hangers for our gutter installations. Heavy duty .032 gauge gutters are used in all of our white gutter installations. When colors other than white are specified, medium gauge .027 gutters are used since the heavy duty gutters are only available in white.
