Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
Does Advanced Seamless Gutters Have an Office?
Who is going to show up at my house to install my gutters?
Advanced Seamless Gutters has the most talented and skilled installers of seamless gutters in Southwest Florida. Our installers will arrive in a professional lettered box truck. All installers wear uniforms and can answer most questions you might have during installation.
How Do I know What Size And Style Of Seamless Gutters I Should Have Installed On My Home?
We will suggest the correct size and style for your home or building. This is based on a number of factors including roof volume, slope and downspouts to name a few. One of our skilled estimators will take measurements and photos in order to design your new seamless gutters.
Do You Install Seamless Vinyl Gutters?
No. Vinyl gutter systems do not stand up well to the constant sun and high temperatures of southwest Florida. Therefore, it is not a product we recommend or offer. Seamless gutters (aluminum, copper etc.) hold up better to extreme weather conditions and keep their color for years.
What Is Meant By "Seamless" Gutters And How Is This Possible?
The term seamless gutters means there will be no seams in your gutters except at corners. We custom bend and fabricate gutters on each job site specifically to fit your building. For example, if the back of your house is 90 feet long, that piece of gutter can be installed continuous with no joints or seams. The corners must be joined on site. We use a one-seam custom installation to provide the most durable joint possible, not a “strip miter or box miter”. The seamless rain gutter will last longer and doesn’t leak like its sectional counterpart. It is also much easier to maintain.
How Do I Know If My House Needs Gutters?
All houses need gutters. There are a number of problems which can be avoided by having gutters on your house that are engineered and installed properly. The amount of rain collected by your roof is greater than you probably think. 1 inch of rain landing on a 1,000 sqft roof is approximately 600 gallons of water. This water, if not properly directed away from your home, will eat away at your foundation, cause mold and mildew as well as possible rot damage to your roof. The last thing you need in a warm climate like Florida is moisture in or around your house. If you have gutters on your house and you notice they are leaking or constantly overflowing even though they are free of debris, your gutters may need to be replaced. Give us a call and one of our skilled estimators will visit your property and give you a free proposal for getting your gutters either replaced or working properly.
What Is A Strip Miter Or Box Miter, And Why Don't You Use These?
This is a method of joining two gutters at a corner by using a third piece. Most companies use this method as there is little skill involved. This creates three seams at each corner, increasing the chances of leaks. At Advanced Seamless Gutters, our skilled and highly trained installers create one custom joint on site. This not only is the best method, but it also leaves you with the cleanest look possible.
What Color Gutters And Downspouts Do You Offer?
We currently offer seamless gutters and downspouts in over 25 different colors. As the largest installer of gutters in Southwest Florida, chances are good that we have installed gutters in your neighborhood. In many cases we have colors and styles on file that have been used or approved by many HOA’s.
What Forms Of Payment Do You Accept?
Payment in full is required when the job is complete. Each seamless gutter system we install is custom made to match and fit your home perfectly. Therefore we require a 30% deposit prior to scheduling your installation.You can make your deposit payment and your final payment by Credit Card, Check, Wire Transfer or Cash. If you are out of town during the scheduled installation, we will hold your credit card payment information and will not charge you until the job is complete.
How Long Does It Take To Install Seamless Gutters On A Home?
Seamless Gutters can be started and completed on most homes the same day. If for some reason we do not finish your home on the day we started, we will let you know and come back to finish the next day we are able.
Do I Need To Be Home When My Gutters Are Installed?
No. You are not required to be home, however you are welcome to be there and watch any or all of the installation process. If you are not at home, you only need to have made payment arrangements prior to the install. Many of our customers that live out of the area have us do installs when they are not in Florida. We will complete the work and send pictures of the job to you upon completion if you would like. We will then charge a credit card that you have provided us for payment of final balance when we are finished the installation.

What Should I Do If I Notice My Gutters Are Leaking Or Overflowing
Seamless gutters are designed to last a lifetime. However, in order to keep them functioning properly they do need routine maintenance.

If we installed your gutters and they are under warranty we will come out and take a look at your gutters to determine the problem.

Please call our office to discuss service calls and costs.

The Gutter Between My House And Screen Enclosure Is Leaking, Can You Fix It?
All gutters are not the same. Gutters between your house and screen enclosures are actually structural gutters, often times called “Super Gutters”. These gutters are part of the support system and the way your screen enclosure is supported and attached to your house. We do not work on these types of gutters or replace them. You would need to contact a company licensed to work on these types of gutters.
