Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why do I need rain gutters?

There are three main reasons you need gutters: They can help prevent foundation problems, maintain your masonry and siding, and prevent damage to your landscape.

  Foundation: The No. 1 reason for slab failure is the expansion and contraction of the soil around your home. After rainy weather, the soil around your home expands as it becomes saturated with water. A dry, hot summer following the rain can cause the soil around your foundation to contract and pull away. As this cycle repeats, support to the foundation can be compromised, and nobody wants hefty foundation-repair bills. A properly designed and installed gutter system keeps the soil around your home at a consistent moisture level by directing runoff from your roof away from your house.
  Masonry and Siding: When rainwater cascades off a roof with no gutters, it hits the ground with enough force to send water, dirt, and mud splashing up onto your home. This looks sloppy in the short term, and over the long term can stain your siding or masonry. These stains can be difficult to remove or hide - a big problem when it comes to resale.
  Landscaping: Rain pounding your flowerbeds or landscaping not only makes it look bad - it also causes larger problems. Too much water in your beds for too long can result in the development of harmful fungus. And the mere force of the rain from a good Texas thunderstorm can significantly erode your soil and scatter mulch all of the yard.

2. Are all gutter companies the same?

Absolutely not. There are a lot of companies out there that focus only on volume. They are trying to rack up so many jobs in so little time that they cut corners and use inferior products. They forget about quality and service. At 1st Class Gutters, quality, and service are our top priorities. We never cut corners. We use the best materials. And we're never done until the customer is satisfied.
