Gutter Warranties 101 – Everything You Need to Know

Most exterior remodeling companies – exterior contractors – offer a warranty of some sort when installing new gutters. 

While the terms and specifics vary between companies and locations, it is important as a consumer to always make sure that you first ask the question, “What is your new gutter warranty?”

Typically, a new gutter installation provides homeowners with some sort of labor guarantee along with a material warranty as well. The length, terms, and conditions are up to each individual contractor. 

That being said, here at Gutter Gurus, our gutter warranty is very straight forward and hassle-free:

  1. We offer a lifetime material warranty
  2. We offer a lifetime labor warranty

Let’s look at the details and conditions of what each of the above include. 

Gutter Material Warranty: 

When it comes to installing new gutters at your home, the preferred choice for most homeowners is aluminum gutters. 

Vinyl/sectional gutters are cheap, but they also don’t perform and copper/steel gutters are super expensive. However, new aluminum gutters are not only affordable, but they’re also durable, custom, and can come in a wide variety of colors. 

Oh, and aluminum gutters also have SUPERIOR performance reviews when installed correctly by a professional. Just price them out right here for free and see for yourself:

ORDER YOUR NEW GUTTERS!

With that being said, here at Gutter Gurus, we offer a lifetime material warranty for any new aluminum gutters we install. 

This means that if a section of gutters breaks, falls off your house (aside from weather impact), is not draining properly, or isn’t performing – we will come to fix it or replace it per the warranty. 

Typically, most companies over a limited material warranty. But here at Gutter Gurus – our new gutter warranties are important to us, so we take them seriously! 

Which leads us to our next part, the gutter labor warranty! 

Note: A tree branch falling on your gutters, a windstorm ripping them off your home, and gutters that are breached due to not being properly cared for (aka gutters must have annual cleaning or gutter guards we installed) are not included in the material warranty. Specific limitations to warranties are included in contracts with homeowners. 

Gutter Labor Warranty (What it includes):

A labor warranty of any kind is simply a warranty that guarantees that quality workmanship will be performed, back by the terms upholding that workmanship. 

In the case of gutters, most companies might offer a 6, 12, or 18-month labor warranty all the way up to 120 months. However, here are Gutter Gurus, we back out labor with a lifetime guarantee. 

This means that any aluminum gutters we install are guaranteed to be installed correctly, drain correctly, and perform the right way – or we will come fix them! 

Since all of our new gutters are customized to fit accordingly and we use the hidden screw-in hangers, our install process is seamless (like the gutters). All jokes aside, our install teams are top-notch, which is why we are confident in guaranteeing a lifetime labor warranty. 

What isn’t included in the warranty?

If we installed them, the labor warranty is guaranteed. However, in the event of a tree branch damaging gutters or clogging because gutters are not properly cleaned, thus causing the gutters to pull away from the house – we do not guarantee our labor warranty. Regularly maintained gutters are key to increasing the life of your gutters. 

Now if you read that and you’re a little worried about cleaning your gutters each November, don’t worry. We offer the ultimate gutter warranty below in our gutter guard package: 

No-clog Warranty with Raindrop Gutter Guard:

So if we install brand new gutters and you maintain them you’re all set for life, right?

That is correct. However, what if you’re someone who doesn’t want to pay to have them cleaned or you don’t think you can clean them, then what?

The simple answer to that question is to install gutter guards, but not just any gutter guards. Raindrop gutter guards to be specific, and here is why:

  • Raindrop Gutter guards are SELF-CLEANING (meaning you don’t have to clean them they wash themselves out)
  • They are a surface tension guard made from highly durable polypropylene
  • Great for helping melt snow and ice in winter (eases weight on gutters) 
  • Can easily be added to new gutters for just around $10 per foot
  • Lifetime NO CLOG warranty with all Raindrop products we install

In 4 years of exclusively using Raindrop, we have only had to help clean gutter guards less than a handful of times and it was because of highly dense pine needles (aka it was very random). 

Not to mention, new gutter guards cost less than a 3-4 year gutter cleaning average. This means in what you would pay to have your gutters cleaned over the next three or four years, you would have new guards that last a lifetime, literally – we guarantee it! 

The only exclusions that MAY apply are if gutter guards are installed on existing old gutters that we did no install. In this case, we almost always recommend new gutters first! However, this is a case by case basis. 

Final Word on Gutter Warranties: 

gutter problems

Most companies are simply not willing to guarantee their work not because it’s poor work, but they don’t want to deal with the hassle. But we look at another way. 

We wanted our customers to be as informed and as confident as possible when making a purchasing decision. That is why we offer such amazing gutter product warranties. 

To recap, here are OUR gutter warranties again:

  • Lifetime labor and material warranty on new seamless gutters
  • Lifetime no-clog warranty on new Raindrop gutter guards
