Who makes Standard Gutter Guards?

Standard Gutter Guard is a fourth generation product designed and manufactured in Washington State. Through years of development tested, the design until it became one of the most easily installed, functional, and affordable stainless steel gutter guards on the market today. This process involved the gathering of information from hundreds of customers that have used our earlier products and then allowed us to apply some of those ideas to help make this new product the best on the market.

This product is versatile and looks good on so many different styles and sizes of gutters and roofs.

This almost invisible, non intrusive design allows it to function in even the hardest of rain storms.

Standard Gutter Guard is a stainless steel mesh combined with a coated aluminum substrate. The coated aluminum is louvered for maximum water flow, then formed around the stainless in a continuous roll forming process. The proven reliability of the roll forming process allows us to manufacture Standard Gutter Guard at a higher quality and quantity with few discrepancies.

Our deep understanding of these processes, we are able to manufacture our products so efficiently that our overhead is substantially lower than our competition.

The base of Standard Gutter Guard is comprised of .019” aluminum supplied from Alsco Metals Corporation and is made of 92.08% recycled aluminum. It is made from the same material as downspouts and has the same manufacturer material warranty.

The stainless steel screen is purchased from McNichols Company in Washington State. The steel mesh is comprised of a 304 alloy, square weave, 30 mesh, .012” wire, and with .0213” openings. Essentially, this screen was specifically chosen because the holes are small enough to keep out roof granules, pine needles, and any larger debris from entering the gutters. However, the holes are large enough to allow pollen and bio-organic material to pass through and flush out the gutter system.

Material Construction:

Standard Gutter Guard is produced using the roll forming method. Roll forming is ideal for producing constant profile parts with long lengths and a consistent outcome. The stainless steel screen is held in place to the solid aluminum substrate using Pittsburgh seams. There is no glue, pins, or caulking used in the production of Standard Gutter.

Gutter Repair in Citrus Hieghts

To do gutter repairs right sometimes you’ll have to remove the gutter completely to fix the problem. In the photo below we have taken the gutter off the house. The gutter company who install the gutter originally, didn’t do a good job. They installed the gutter without any pitch, so the rain water would not drain properly. The seams were not pop riveted on all three sides, so the weight of the standing water caused the gutter to break its seam. They also forgot to crimp the ends caps of the gutters, so they leaked.
The worst part about this whole gutter repair project was that the gutters had only been installed a year ago, a the owner was over charged by $1,500. He paid $2,500 for the installation of 100 feet that’s $25 dollars a foot, and they didn’t install gutter guards.
Folks if a Gutter Company charges you more than ten dollars a foot to install any type of gutter THEY ARE RIPPING YOU OFF!

Pop riveting the inside of an inside mitered corner is important. Firstly it provides strength to the corner and the gutter system in general. Secondly, it will keep seams from leaking longer, after a few seasons of weather the cocking becomes dry and brittle.This is normal and will not cause any problems in your gutter system, if it was install correctly (like mitering on all sides of gutter), but if it was not you will want to check for leaks and bad seams on a yearly basis.

In this picture of a Sacramento home you can see that the fascia board has start to curl or buckle. This is usually because rain water is getting behind the gutters, and on the fascia board. There are many possible reason for this. At this Sacramento home it is because no flashing was installed. The rain water lands on the roof runs down the shingles and over on to the fascia and then into the gutter system.
