And Learn Why Our Gutters Can’t Be Beat!

How Much Do New Gutters Cost?

While we can’t claim to owning the lowest bid you’ll see, our quotes always offer the most value for your hard-earned dollars. Between the quality of our custom-made gutters to the carefully vetted materials we use, and the unequaled quality of our installation, our gutters can’t be beat at any price. Top all that with our 10-year Workmanship Warranty, and you just can’t lose.

What’s So Special About Seamless Gutters?

Seams are always the weak point in any gutter system. No matter what you do, there will always be some movement at the seams, even if the motion is too slight for you to see. That movement weakens the seals, allowing rainwater to leak through and make the seal even weaker. As the process continues over the years, the structural integrity of your gutter system gets worse and worse until it fails completely. With seamless gutters, each length is customized to fit your roof edge perfectly. The rigidity of a single extruded length of gutter is far superior to one consisting of multiple lengths pieced together. And without all those seams, there’s nowhere else for the water to go except to fall neatly down the spout. Also, seamless gutters simply look better on your home. Their straight, unbroken lines make for a cleaner look than traditional gutters.

Do You Offer Different Styles?

We offer a variety of K-style shapes in both 5” and 6” depths, as well as the custom older style half-round shape in our seamless gutters. We can produce seamless gutters made from aluminum or copper, extruded on-site in our specialized work trucks. You can also select the modern look of box gutters, which we custom fabricate in our metal shop and then have our crews install on the job site.

It’s when you get to the downspouts that things get truly interesting with options, such as:

  • Rounded Downspouts
  • Custom box Downspouts
  • Scupper Boxes
  • Rain Chains

With your imagination and our skills, you can turn your gutters from a dull necessity to a vibrant exterior feature that makes your home stand out from the crowd.

Can I Get Different Colors?

You can select from a wide array of colors from our manufacturer color deck. Whether it’s a simple black or white gutter, or a unique red or green, we have a color that is right for you. Plus, our durable manufactured powder coated products carry a 20 year finish warranty. With our available options, you’ll never have to worry about painting your gutters again.

Are Your Home Consultations Free?

Of course they’re free! Why in the world would we charge you to discuss your options? Not only are they free, but our visits are notably shorter than those of most other Wasatch Front exterior home solutions companies. But that isn’t to say we’re less thorough than the rest. In fact, the majority of the time we spend in your home is spent taking measurements and inspecting your gutters. We just don’t waste time on silly sales tactics. We show up, we listen, we inspect, then we offer a fair proposal for the work that needs to be done. And then we leave. We know decisions on large investments shouldn’t be arrived at in a hurry, so our quotes are always good for 30 days.

Do You Offer Financing?

We work with a select group of financing companies that specialize in home improvement loans. The loan process is quick and easy, with payments that can fit into almost any household budget. We offer everything from 5-year low-interest loans to 6, 12, or 18-months same-as-cash arrangements. Whatever your situation, it’s likely that we can help you to afford to replace your gutters before they cause damage to other parts of your home.

What Makes RGS Exteriors My Best Choice?

We’ve been in the gutter replacement business since the 1950s and have our process down to a science. We teach every installer from the ground up, experienced or not. With an extensive apprenticeship process, all new installers go through a training protocol to ensure they have the skills required to work for RGS Exteriors. From in house monthly training meetings to onsite hands on 1-on-1 instruction, we teach newbies the right way to do things and show the experienced new hires why some of the habits they picked up working for our competitors need to be discarded. All this training and careful material selection are why we can offer our 10-year Workmanship Warranty. A warranty that no other company in Utah is willing to come close to matching.

How Do I Prepare For Installation Day?

While we teach our installers to take all necessary precautions to protect your home, things can still happen that are out of our control. No matter how careful you are, a sudden gust of wind can change things in a hurry.

So, the day before installation day, we recommend that you do the following:

  • Clear the perimeter of your home of all debris, equipment, and tripping hazards like bikes or toys.
  • Prepare a spot where the supplies can be placed without harming your property
  • If loud noises disturb your pets, find them a place to stay for the duration of the project.

On the morning of and throughout installation day, you should:

  • Move any vehicles in your driveway to the street or into your garage. (remember those wind gusts?)
  • Remind your children not to stray into the work area. (Keeping them inside is always best)
  • Secure any remaining pets, keeping them inside your home while installers are present.

This handful of precautions, plus the added precautions our installers take before they start installing the product, will make for a smooth and uneventful installation process.

What Kind Of Warranty Do You Offer?

Each gutter product will come with its own level of warranty, which we will discuss with you once you’ve chosen your gutter type and material. We also offer every homeowner we partner with to complete a project our 10-year Workmanship Warranty. We will make it right if any part of our installation process causes a problem in the first ten years after project completion.
