Gutter Services in Ooltewah, TN



Get the Right Gutters

Gutters are often overlooked as a key piece of protection for your property. Their job is to prevent water from gathering around the base of your home, which can lead to all kinds of future repairs or home issues that will likely cost you money.

The good news is that you have a lot of choices when it comes to getting new gutters, like the style or what they’re made of. However, many homeowners don’t know that when it gets time to replace them so they don’t choose the best ones. Part of our gutter services in Ooltewah, TN is to make sure that you get the best gutters available and install them properly for maximum protection.


Two Types of Gutters

Something that can make a difference in the level of protection your gutters will bring is which type of gutters you want. A popular choice by homeowners is the sectional gutters because of their affordability. The downside is that, because they’re pieced together in 10-foot sections, they tend to leak after enough time has passed. The main choice for these usually comes down to staying in your budget.

On the other hand, you also have the option of seamless gutters if your budget allows. They come with an increase in the cost, but they also give you increased value through protection and structural integrity. Like the name suggests, seamless gutters don’t need to be put together so there’s less risk of leaks and they’re stronger. This allows them to withstand more weathering and hold more weight before problems start.

Common Material Choices for Gutter Installation in Ooltewah, TN

You might think that hiring a contractor can be more expensive, but we’ll help you find the best gutters for your home and hopefully save you money long-term.


A popular option among homeowners is vinyl because they’re generally easier to install, which translates to less labor costs. The vinyl material never rusts and they come in multiple colors. Some homeowners want to install vinyl gutters themselves, but incorrect installation can cause your gutters to leak, break, or sag and collapse, so we always recommend a professional.

Copper and Steel

Copper is one of the most expensive materials out there when it comes to gutters, but they bring a great aesthetic to your home and don’t get damaged easily. Unfortunately, the price is a hard argument to rationalize for many. 

Steel, on the other hand, has a few more choices to make because there are different styles of the material. Galvanized steel, for example, is hardened to resist damage and hold up against damage from tree branches. You have a choice of color and style for steel gutters and they’re surprisingly easy to install, but the material’s prone to rusting. Especially if you live in a rainy area, replacement costs can add up.


Another material for gutters that’s pretty easy to install is aluminum, which can be painted to be any color you want. Aluminum gutters come in seamless or sectional and hold up well. Seamless is even easier to put in and won’t crack due to harsh weather, so they could be worth your consideration. However, aluminum is a softer metal so it can dent easier than some.


A couple of the most-common woods used to make wood gutters are cedar and redwood, but they’re usually chosen for their aesthetic. They bring an older look to your home, but they’ll definitely cost you.

Stainless Steel

A preferable option to steel for many homeowners, stainless steel is still really strong without the rust issue. The bad news there is that they cost more than most of the gutter materials available so the cost can be higher.

VLR Homes, LLC



We have engaged Francisco and VLR Homes 3 times now. From painting the house, remodeling a master bath and constructing a screened in porch area they have responded with quality work at a fair price. When things came up like they always do, VLR had a solution (some panels of 50 year old siding replaced with Tyvek and up to code replacement). Again, at a fair price and done right the first time. Francisco is responsive with the good and the bad news â  straight up and always with a plan. We intend to use VLR in the future for projects large or small.
