Looking for a seamless gutter contractor.
« on: June 11, 2017, 10:58:27 AM »

This is for a commercial building so it needs the wider (I think it's 5 or even 6") and heavier material than a residential grade.

I'm doing my absolute best to use a 'local' contractor but I've struck out so far trying to find one.  Even the place recommended by the roofing contractor doesn't answer their phone. 

I can find several in Toledo or DownRiver but finding disconnected phones for the ones here in town.  I know they used to make the machines that actually made the gutters down in Temperance but they're gone from there now.

I even asked my daughter and she couldn't come up with a local business...

hopefully I'm just overlooking someone.  If you have any suggestions please either post them here or private message me. 

Note:  if you're private messaging me it may be a few days before I can reply.  I have to go in and get some minor surgery but not sure how long I may be 'offline'.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Yep, Guttermaker sold out to company down south a number of years ago.  His family bought 50 acres across the road from me and built 4 big houses and all retired.
A friend at the gym has a relative in the business.  i'll ask if he does commercial.

Give Monroe Aluminum a call as they may be able to direct you to someone.

That's a good idea...   sure not being overwhelmed with names here.

Making me think maybe I should buy one of those machines ;) ;) ;)

If there's something I really want I usually find a way...

not really looking to buy one for a one shot use though.

Do you happen to know if Brown and Sons goes as far as Monroe to do work?

Do you think aluminum will be sufficient for a gutter 6" wide that is exceptionally long?

I don't know which is one of the reasons that we're having a contractor do the job.  The longest run will be just short of 90 feet.  I'll take a magnet and check to see what the original ones are made of.  I've been up there and added screws where the nails had pulled out over the years and it looks like aluminum but I never did really check.  I have all vinyl at home but I don't think that would work on that long a run.

If supported properly it could be 1000 ft long. Thats the benefit of continuous gutters. No seems

The 'Jack' isn't all mine but copper would not look that good on this building without a lot of other work.

I like copper gutters and fascia that are left untreated and eventually 'corrode' to a few shades of green.  Doesn't sound that great but it is very distinctive looking.  The bear is when you have to go in and do a repair at some point and they wait for the repaired section to 'corrode in'.

Our church in Toledo has copper gutters.  Also had huge copper downspouts until a few years ago.
Someone came in one night and ripped them off.  They walked off with more than 200' of them.

I'm sure there is a special corner of Hell for these people ;) ;) ;)
