Most competitors in the exterior business use a gutter of .027 thickness, unlike Krumwiede who refuses to install anything under .032. The reason this thickness is vital in our service areas of Arlington Heights, Palatine, Barrington, Hoffman Estates and other Northwest Suburbs in the Chicagoland area, is because of our harsh and extreme climates throughout the year. The climate and weather can easily damage gutters with thickness .027 because of its thin quality and inability to combat ice dams in the gutter.
Another aspect of our gutter installation that sets us apart is the mechanisms in which we hang them to your fascia boards and eaves. All, if not most of our competitiors install their gutters using framing nails which is an improper practice because nails can rust and also expand and contract with the elements. Once this happens, the gutters are pulled away from the fascia boards and their original, functioning position. Krumwiede uses Raytec Hangtite Gutter Hangers and are fastned using barn screws which furthers and strengthens the sealing process to weather the elements of our changing Chicagoland climate. We use this process exclusively in our service area of Barrington, Arlington Heights, Palatine, Hoffman Estates and other Northwest Suburbs in the Chicagoland area.
The very most important aspect of our entire gutter process are the installers behind our great products. Our gutters installers are in-house workers, who are trained and are continually learning about how to serve the homeowner in the best way, even after their 30 years of experience!
