Different Types of Gutter Materials and Products: An Interview with Brad Haendel of A.B. Seamless

By Brad Haendel

Tell us a little bit about your company and its foundation.

A.B. Seamless was started in 2001 as a small family-run business. It was a part-time job that quickly grew into a full-time year-round business. We have learned a lot in the last fourteen years, and we're still improving the process to go above and beyond your expectations. Seamless gutters are usually the last thing to go on a house ? the final piece of trim. We take pride in the functionality and look of our seamless gutters. We would be happy to help you complete or update your biggest investment.

Please provide a list of the different types of gutters that exist on the market with a short explanation/list of benefits for each: (From typically most expensive to least).

We have 5" or 6" K-style gutters available in aluminum or copper. What's more, we have 5" and 6" half-round gutters available in aluminum, copper or galvanized steel. Half-round gutters are not used as much because their price and the flat fascia installed on houses today is intended for K-style gutters because of their flat backing.

Out of these types, which is the most common and why?

Five-inch K-style is the most popular form of gutter we install, because 6" is usually only used to; catch a large volume of water from extremely large amount of roof, very long runs of gutter, or use on commercial buildings.

Please explain what a gutter guard is for our viewers.

A cover made of aluminum designed to allow water through while keeping other things such as pine needles, leaves, and branches out. Such as our very own product: A.B. Worryfree Gutter Protection.

What gutter installation method do you prefer to use and why?

Nails are your enemy, they have a very high chance to rust or become lose. We prefer to use pole barn screws with neoprene washers to reduce the risk of them loosening, and the washer seals the hole to ensure that no water enters and rots out your fascia boards.

What is the best way for people to reach you and or your company?

The best way to reach us is to call (920)-946-4686 or access our website www.abseamlessgutters.com and fill out our estimate form.
