St. Louis’ Gutter Installation and Repair Experts

Gutter systems are essential for the success of any roofing system.

If your gutter system is clogged with outdoor debris or broken in any way, it can cause water to create a sagging roof. Over time, this leads to water damage inside your home.

When functioning properly, though, gutter systems drain water away from your roof and away from your foundation.

Preserve the integrity of your St. Louis gutter and siding with regular gutter cleanings every spring and fall. These cleaning appointments are also an excellent time to have your trusted roofing contractor to inspect your gutters, downspouts, soffits, and fascias.

At Wildwood Roofing, we provide expert gutter repair services. We can assist cleaning your gutters, installing gutter guards, or completing a full gutter replacement. Whatever your roof needs, we’re the perfect home improvement company for the job.

Material Selection for Gutter Installations

One of the first decisions you’ll need to make for your new roof gutter is selecting the type of materials you want.

We carry and install the following materials for your home:

  • Aluminum
  • Vinyl
  • Copper

These three are common gutters in St. Louis because they are effective and low maintenance.

The type of material you select will depend on a few factors unique to your home. For instance, a vinyl gutter system might make sense if the color selections match your roof’s shingles.

Continuous gutter systems – or gutter installations with no seams – are slightly more expensive, but remove the risk of leaks around the seams.

Gutter Installations with Wildwood Roofing

Once your material is chosen, we get to work with your rain gutter installation.

Our professionals install new gutters below the drip edge of your roofing system. This system collects water from your roof and guides the precipitation away from the building.

Installers ensure the gutter is slightly sloped toward the downspout so water flow is efficient. We typically recommend that St. Louis gutters have a pitch, expressed as a ratio of width to height, of 1:40. This will force water to flow toward one of the downspouts.

If you have a large roof, it is usually suggested that, if your facility has a large roof, there are multiple downspouts, with a stretch of gutter leading to each one—usually, downspouts are installed every 20-30 feet.

As with most roofing applications, a licensed commercial or residential roofing contractor will be best equipped to properly install your gutter system. They know all about gutter installation and gutter repair in St. Louis, and the sporadic weather characteristic of Missouri.
