Gutter Protection, Installation, Cleaning & Repair in Renton WA
Gutters are a critical component of the building envelope, and gutter installation should be done by experienced professionals. Guttering helps divert rainwater away from your property, which can help prevent damage to your home or business. If you’re in need of the best gutter installation services in Renton, WA, contact Guardian Home today!
In Renton, gutters are important for directing roof rainwater runoff away from vulnerable areas. They keep foundation plants intact and protect decks and railings from soaking and pooling water that can lead to rot or mildew. Gutters prevent runoff from falling onto sidewalks and people, and they also direct water to safe drainage areas, lessening the chance of flooding in your home or building.
Gutters are installed on the eaves of a building to prevent water from accumulating near the foundation slab. The gutter directs runoff away from the structure and prevents erosion, damage, or leaks to the foundations’ walls or slab. Water that pools around the base of exterior walls can seep into basements and cause flooding. Water that penetrates slab cracks can work its way up through the slab and sit underneath flooring materials, causing rot and stains.
Poor grading of soil around foundation walls creates areas where water pools or collects. A lack of gutters plus poor grading can spell disaster for Renton slabs and basements.
About Different Gutter Sizes
You may have never noticed that gutters come in different sizes. But when you think about it, it makes sense.
A giant roof with tons of water coming off it needs an appropriately sized gutter to accommodate the runoff. If the gutter can’t hold all the water coming off the roof, the water will spill over and fall onto the surfaces below and around the foundation.
The best gutter size for your Renton roof will depend on your particular structure, which is why we recommend calling Guardian Home Services to determine the size you need. Typically, you can expect us to install 5″-6″ gutters on average homes and buildings, oversized 7″ gutters on very large roofs with steep pitches, and 4″ gutters on small homes with low-pitched roofs.
About Seamless Gutters
Traditional gutters are installed in prefabricated sections that are made from metal or vinyl. Seamless gutters, on the other hand, are made to order in custom lengths. Instead of comprising multiple sections joined together, seamless gutters extend down the full length of the roof. Fewer joints of course mean fewer places where water can leak through.
Guardian Home is proud to provide the best seamless gutter installation on Renton homes and commercial buildings.
Types of Gutters
K-line is the most popular type of gutter that we install. Other types of gutters include the half-round, low-profile (sometimes called Barbie), and fascia-style. Some Renton homeowners and property managers opt for vinyl or copper gutters instead of metal. Our Guardian Home gutter experts will help you make the best decision for the type and style of gutter for your building.
Gutter Repair and Maintenance Renton WA
Like other building envelope systems, gutters must be maintained to perform their best over the long haul. Sometimes maintenance requires repairs or section replacement.
Over time, your Renton gutters may get damaged by the force of falling objects like tree branches; dented or cracked by ladders leaned against them; or compromised when spikes pull out of fascia and cause sagging.
Call Guardian Home for periodic inspections of your gutters. We’ll flag the areas that need attention and carry out repairs or replacements efficiently.
We Recommend Gutter Guards in Renton
The number of trees in Renton mean lots of leaves that fall throughout the year onto Renton roofs, washing down into gutters. Not only do leaves end up in gutters, but so do all other kinds of debris—twigs, softballs, asphalt shingle granules, and even bug colonies. It would be nice if all that debris washed its way down your gutters and spouts, but it doesn’t. Instead, it builds up and clogs gutters.
Is there a way to prevent debris accumulations? Yes. Installing gutter guards keeps gutters empty and clog-free.
Gutter guards are mesh panels that we attach over the tops of clean and empty gutters. The mesh allows water into gutters but keeps everything else out—even shingle granules.

Renton Gutter Cleaning
Don’t have gutter guards? Then you have debris in your gutters, and if it’s not causing blockages now, it will soon. Clogs obstruct the flow of water, causing roof runoff to overflow gutters and land on all those vulnerable surfaces underneath.
You can get up on a ladder and clean out those gutters yourself, or you can call Guardian Home for our Renton gutter cleaning services. We’ve got the expertise and equipment to get the job done safely and thoroughly.
While we’re at it, may we recommend you have us install gutter guards? Just think—you won’t have to call anyone for gutter cleaning ever again.
