Traditional rain gutters have evolved little during the past century. Their designs continue to use spikes, screws, or nails for attachment to your home, which we refer to as a conventional installation. The average house with gutters has 70+ holes punctured in the back wall of the gutter, and holes cause leaks. Water exposure over many seasons can cause structural failure because of rot, mold and gutter separation. Not to mention, breaking down gutters will begin to sag and detract from the appearance of a home.
If it’s not SnapLock, it’s not permanent. At Guild Collective our professionals install the SnapLock Gutter System®, which was created to provide a run-off system for homes that won’t, over time, cause damage itself. SnapLock gutters are a smart and affordable choice for the quality-minded homeowner and will stand the test of time.
SnapLock Gutter Installation eliminates failures due to water damage typically associated with conventional gutter installations. SnapLock Gutter Installation’s innovative “no-hole” technology uses no spikes or nails for attachment to your roof line. Instead, we use a track system. An aluminum trust is attached to the house, and then a special clip that goes on the back wall of the gutter is used to snap into that trust. There is no need to penetrate the front or back of the gutter. The result is a watertight mating of the gutter at the edge of your roof, a seal that prevents seepage, rust, rot and mold.
Further, because the integrity of your gutter channel is not riddled with holes, the SnapLock Gutter Installation dramatically outlasts all traditional rain gutters while protecting your home against the hazards associated with bacterial mold and fungus. Another major benefit of the SnapLock Gutter System® is that it allows the gutters to move freely. This can be crucial when attaching metal to any structure, due to the different rates of expansion from temperature change.
The SnapLock Gutter System can be installed on nearly any home. It can fit almost every fascia-roofline configuration, and it is designed to work with the most common gutter sizes. The price of new gutters is more easily justified when you know that you chose the best: the long-lasting, high-quality, cost-effective SnapLock Gutter System® that will save homeowners an incredible amount of money over time and eliminate worry. Another benefit, we can offer you a lifetime transferable warranty.
Homeowners often question if they even need gutters. In short, roofs displace a large amount of water and that water is destructive if it is not channeled to the ground properly through a downspout. Here are a few common problems that you could encounter if you do not have a gutter system:
Our experts can protect your house from rain damage by professionally installing a gutter system. Compared to the cost of your home, this is a small investment to safeguard your largest investment.
There are several signs that you can look for around your house to confirm that you need gutters.

You may already have gutters but are experiencing some of the above symptoms. If so, it is likely that there is a blockage in your system and so the gutters are not functioning correctly. Our professionals can help you with that.
You may be asking how to keep gutters clean.
Leaves are the main culprit and the hardest debris on gutters. They fall, get into the gutter, and then clog it. Once debris builds up, water will overflow and damage the siding of the home. A gutter that isn’t performing properly will actually cause more harm than if you didn’t have gutters at all. Keeping your gutters clear is a priority.
We like to use two different products to keep gutters clean depending on your needs. If you have a lot of trees and pollen we prefer to use our finer product option, which is a stainless steel micro-mesh. It does a great job filtering out small particles and therefore requires less upkeep. If you have large trees or not a lot of coverage from the trees and leaves, you could use our more basic screen. However, this option will require more maintenance because it has larger holes, allowing more things to pass through and get clogged or get caught on top of it.
Both options are good products and we would love to show you which could work best on your gutter system.
