Gutter Installation in Dallas/Fort Worth: 3 Factors to Consider


  • Gutters come in several different styles.
  • Gutter materials can make a big difference in price and have other benefits as well.
  • Gutter extensions and add-ons can add a lot of value and should be considered.

Often, it’s only when you need to have gutters installed that you find out just how many factors are involved in good working gutters. If you need working gutters, it’s important to consider all of the factors involved before you start making decisions about installation. Take a look at some of the most important factors so that you’ll have an idea of what needs to be discussed with your gutter installer.

The Style of The Gutter

Gutter models.
Gutters can look very different, and each style and material has its own pros and cons.

Gutters don’t all look alike. There are different styles that you can choose for your gutters. They not only differ aesthetically, but they also have some additional pros and cons. 

One popular type is the K-style gutter. They offer the kind of drainage that most US homes need. They tend to have flat bottoms and backs, and the front will have a decorative side that blends with the home. 

Fascia gutters are also good choices in the US. They have smooth faces designed to hide the edges of the rafter tails. 

Half-round gutters – called so because they are half-round tubes – and European style gutters, which are half-rounds made of naturally weathering material like copper, are available in the US but are much less popular. They tend to become clogged and overflow faster than the other styles.

The Material of the Gutter

Gutters come in a variety of materials, which also keeps them from all looking alike. Some of the more common gutter materials include copper, aluminum, vinyl, and stainless steel. 

Aluminum tends to be less expensive and comes in a variety of colors, as does vinyl. On the other hand, copper and stainless steel are long-lasting and may be used to give the home an elegant, high-class look. 

Extensions and Add-ons

Multiple downspout models.
Downspouts and other add-ons can make your gutter systems more productive and keep them safer.

There’s more to the gutter system than the gutters themselves. You’ll need downspouts and perhaps downspout extenders as well. You may also want to add extra value to your gutter system with something like a gutter system heater that helps melt snow and prevents ice dams in the winter or with a gutter guard that prevents clogs from building up and keeps you from having to clean your gutters constantly. 

A gutter installer should be open to talking to you about all of these different features. You may not be sure what is best for your property, but the installer should help you figure it out.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
