Fiberglass Gutter Installation
GutterPro now offers 4×5 and 4×6 FiberGutter brand fiberglass gutter installed on new and existing homes in all of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Fiberglass gutter systems were originally conceived for residential installation in the late 1990’s and have proven to be a great alternative to high maintenance wood gutter systems. The advantages of fiberglass gutter include longevity, corrosion resistance, less maintenance and aesthetics. After many years of research and development, FiberGutter brand fiberglass gutters are now more cost effective and stronger than earlier counterparts and should last a lifetime.
Why are Fiberglass Gutters Better?
They are resistant to rot and moisture damage which makes them an ideal choice for salt air environments or for use on homes with copper drip edge or other copper details that would cause pre-mature corrosion of typical metal and aluminum gutter systems.
Fiberglass gutters are also significantly more impact resistant than any other type of gutter such as plastic, aluminum and copper.
Fiberglass Gutters were created to be a replacement product for wood gutters. In order to acheive that goal, it needs to look like just like wood gutter. Fibergutter is a direct representation of 4×5 wood gutter without the maintenance issues.
Minimal Expansion and Contraction
The proprietary formula for fiberglass gutter does not have the thermal expansion and contraction issues of other composite products. The consistency of the product also allows the seaming between pieces and at mitered corners to form on a molecular level.
Technology Meets Tradition
FiberGutter is manufactured in the United States through a process called pultrusion . Pultrusion is a continuous process whereby reinforcing fibers are first pulled through a resin bath, then into a shaping and forming guide system and finally into a die where the product is generally heated and cured to its nominal dimensions. The result in this case is a consistent, uniform and structural piece of rain gutter.
Structural stainless screws have proven to be the best, long lasting fastener to use when hanging FiberGutter brand fiberglass gutter. The self drilling point before the threads allows our gutter to be installed without pre-drilling and resists cracking during installation.
