K-Style Gutter Installation Jacksonville, FL
Rain Gutter Installation Jacksonville is critical to the protection of your home and the most common style of rain gutter is the k-style seamless aluminum gutter. It is designed to complement the exterior of modern homes by resembling crown molding. K-style seamless gutters perform better than half-round gutters in every way. K-style seamless gutters are stronger and more durable. They can handle more water than the half-round style. Because they are stronger and more effective, they are the industry standard.
Gutter Installation Jacksonville, with Gutter Guards
Golden Hammer Gutters recommends and installs Perforated Aluminum Gutter Guard, aka Leaf Guards, because they are the most cost-effective way to keep your gutter systems from clogging up internally. Perforated Aluminum Gutter Guards, aka Leaf Guards, are moderately priced compared to other gutter guards such as solid gutter covers, aka Gutter Helmets. These solid gutter covers may do a great job at keeping debris out of the gutter systems however they are terribly expensive, and they perform very poorly during moderate to heavy rains.
During moderate to heavy rains, you will often see the water cascading over the solid gutter covers like a waterfall effect which contradicts the entire purpose of having gutters in the first place.
The surface of the Perforated Aluminum Gutter Guards is smooth so you can expect debris that roll down the roof and rest on top of the gutter guards to easily blow off during a light breeze. Unlike micro-mesh screens the smooth surface of the Perforated Aluminum Gutter Guards can be easily broomed off if an accumulation does occur on top of the gutter guards.

Aluminum Downspout Installation
Golden Hammer Gutters can replace your existing downspouts with larger sized downspouts. When it comes to clogs in your downspouts, the obstructions always begin at the elbow juncture. Having larger downspouts with wider elbows makes it less likely for debris to become stuck inside.
Adding additional downspouts to your existing gutters is also an option. Perhaps you have a long run of gutter that doesn’t seem to handle the heavy volumes of water. Most of the time you can simply add an additional downspout to solve this problem. An additional downspout would serve to relieve the pressure and spread the water to separate drainage points. Depending on the pitch or slope of the existing gutter, this solution may include re-pitching the gutter to ensure that the water drains towards the new downspout.
Aluminum Splash Guard Installation
Aluminum Splash Guards can be installed to problem areas where water seems to travel right over the gutters. The most common areas where splash guards are needed is below roofing valleys. These valley’s carry higher volumes of water and this can overwhelm the corner of a gutter system especially during moderate to heavy rains. If you have an upper gutter system that drains onto a lower roofing surface this can also cause heavy flows of water to be directed at a single point of a lower gutter system. This can cause water to splash over top of the rim of the lower gutter. We typically recommend having that upper downspout be connected directly into the lower gutter system using a downspout extension pipe, however a splash guard can also be used in these situations to prevent the splash over effect.
Aluminum Drip-Edge Extender Installation
One of the most important components of your roofing and gutter systems is the drip edge. It is tucked under the roofing surface on the eve of your roof and bridges the gap between the roofing deck and the gutter. Drip-edge prevents water from traveling behind the gutter system where it could potentially damage the interior walls, exterior wood trim, and/or siding components of the home. Sometimes the existing drip-edge needs to be extended slightly to force water to drip into the gutter and to prevent it from traveling behind the gutter.
Aluminum Downspout Extensions
Depending on the layout of your landscape, sometimes it is necessary to extend the downspout further out into the flower bed, yard, or possibly around a corner or an air-conditioner unit perhaps. Whatever the case may be, our experts can prevent this from being a problem. Maybe you need to extend your upper-level downspout directly into your lower-level gutter system so that the water does not overwhelm the lower gutter system. We understand how to avoid and/or fix these common drainage issues. If you are experiencing some of these types of drainage concerns, send us a picture today because we can diagnose many of these problems right over the phone.
Fascia Board or Rake Board Installation
The trim board that your gutters are mounted to are called “Fascia Boards”. This wood will often need to be replaced every 20-30 years depending on how well your gutters are maintained and how much water gets behind the gutters. There is typically no repair for damaged or rotted fascia board. If it is damaged, it needs to be replaced so that the gutters remain secured to the home and are strong enough to handle the weight of heavy rainwater. Rotten fascia board is often not noticed until the gutters are removed from the home. When we discover damaged fascia board, we will always bring this to the homeowner’s attention because it is never a good idea to attach new gutters to rotten wood. In most cases, we can get the necessary wood on the same day and then replace the damaged fascia board so that we can complete the gutter installation process without delay.
Aluminum Miter Installation
Gutter Miters are aluminum sleeves used to bridge the gap between two seamless sections of gutter which allows for gutter systems to go around corners. These corner sleeves are sealed using a commercial grade waterproof sealant which prevents the gutter corners from leaking.
