Does Alloy Gutter Provide Gutter Estimates?

A quick call is all it takes to get a price on gutters. During the initial phone call, we will gather your general information and ask you a few questions about the scope of work needed. Of course, Alloy Gutter offers free estimates and you don’t even need to be at home when we come out! Your initial paperwork will be turned over to an estimator who will visit the job site. At this time, he will take measurements and photos. The estimator will return to our office and put together your quote. He will email or fax you a copy of the quote and give you a call to see if you have any questions or are ready to schedule the job. If needed, any revisions to the proposal can be done at this time. A common question we hear is, “How soon can you install my new gutters?”  In many cases, Alloy Gutter Company can quote and do your job the same day or next day. We will need to know your color choice and have the scope of work approved before starting your job.  Once we confirm the details of the job, we are able to get you scheduled fast.  Give Alloy Gutter Company a call and you will be amazed how quickly we can provide a quote and install your new gutters!

Sealing up the Crocks

If you own an older home, you may notice small circular concrete things sticking up a few inches above ground level. They are close to the home’s foundation.  What are these mystery things?  What was their purpose? Why don’t we see them on newer houses?

These mystery things are called crocks. They did serve a purpose many years ago. Rainwater from homes used to drain into the community sewer system. The water from your roof would end up at the water treatment plant. As cities grew, the cost became prohibitive. For this reason, many communities have outlawed draining roof water in the storm sewers.

Today, downspouts discharge rain water away from the house and directly onto the lawn.  At Alloy Gutter Company we occasionally get requests to seal up obsolete crocks. Alloy will cement over the opening where the downspout used to discharge; this is done at a very nominal charge. As a bonus, sealing up the crocks will bring your gutter system up to city code. Give us a call because Alloy Gutter Company can take care of ALL your gutter needs, including the crocks.

Alloy Gutter Is Open In The Winter!

Many callers seem surprised when they are told that we are open all year long. However, we are here to take care of all your gutter needs throughout the winter. We are able to install gutters and leaf protection and we can take care of any needed repair work.  When the temperatures are above freezing we can clean gutters. Frequently we hear from callers who are concerned about icicles forming on their gutters. Many assume that the gutters are the cause of the problem.  However, our website has an excellent article explaining how icicles and ice dams form. In most cases, it’s best to wait for a winter thaw and the problem will resolve itself. Give us a call during the cold weather months. We can help you get an early start on your spring to do list. Even when the snow flies, Alloy Gutter is here to serve you.
