Seamless aluminum gutters are the most popular and affordable residential gutter systems in Canada. Typically installed as a 5-inch K-Style system, low-maintenance aluminum seamless gutters are less expensive than other types of gutter systems. And because each home is different, seamless aluminum gutters are custom-fabricated on site to fit the shape and contours of your home perfectly. A wide variety of different sizes, styles, and colors are available to compliment any home.
Without an effective gutter system to handle roof runoff, rainwater and melting snow will land right next to your home’s foundation. This water runoff can not only damage decks, patios and erode the area around your foundation, it can get inside your house and flood your basement.
Due to their prominent role in the exterior appearance of your house, gutters also need to look good and compliment the exterior of your home. Because of the affordability of aluminium seamless gutters, many homeowners elect to install new gutters when they have their home re-roofed.

The seasonal weather conditions in British Columbia can be brutal, especially on gutters and eavestrough systems. Occasional ice build-up, and snow can cause strain and destructive force on all your gutter seams, corners, and joints. Some of the most common gutter repair services we perform include:
Often it is surprisingly affordable and well-advised to repair your eavestroughs rather than replace them. Generally, the vast majority of the aluminium gutter and eavestrough systems have an expected lifetime of 15 to 25 years. If your gutter system is only 15 years old and has a number of seams that are leaking or failing, it may make more sense to repair them rather than replace them. Similarly, if you have an old gutter system and you solely want to prevent further damage for a few more seasons, temporary repairs can go a long way to helping you realise your goal.
The most popular gutters used today are aluminium. They’re very durable also cost effective. They don’t rust or corrode and they are lightweight and able to carry plenty of water weight. On the other hand, you can find gutters made of other more prestige materials as well, including copper, which is much more expensive but can last much longer than standard aluminium.

Not all gutters are the exact same though there are certainly standard shapes and sizes. At ORMA Gutter Solutions, we specialize in K-Style gutters. This is the most popular style and you can choose from a variety of sizes to fit your needs. You’ll also want to consider things like the number of trees around your property. When there are more trees, it is very common for the gutters to clog up, which means you often have to opt for larger gutters to avoid that. On the other hand, you can install leaf guards as well.
Gutters are available in a variety of colours so it should be easy to find one that complements your home’s colour scheme and decor. Ask your dealer what they recommend for a house like yours. Typically white and black are the most popular as they are timeless colours.
Often times homeowners want to save money by installing their own gutters, especially if they are replacing existing gutters. However, you’ll need a ton of tools and equipment, a tall ladder, and much more time and effort. It isn’t an easy job for just any one! Instead, hiring a professional makes more sense and it prevents small mistakes that can be costly later on.
