Sunshine is delicious, rain is re-freshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
This time of year we can make sure our gutters are ready for the glorious Oregon rain and luckily Long Bros has sold them for years! A debris-clogged gutter can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home. Gutters are an important part of your home’s well being. They serve to control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation and landscape. First, lets discuss what you sort of project you are tackling – Gutters? Downspouts? Accessories for a new project or repair?
What you will need:
Choose which Plastmo Vinyl Gutter style you prefer Available in two styles in white: Classic (half round) and K-Snap.Visit Plastmo Website at: http://www.plastmo.com/products/
Gutters Option A.
We’ve sold this Classic for years. We have the gutter, downpipe and accessories to complete the whole job. The Heavy duty brackets can support the weight of heavy ice and snow. Plastmo rainware costs far less per year than competitive gutter systems as it is easy to install and requires little maintenance.
Gutters Option B.
K-Style gutters come in both Galvanized and White. These scratch-resistant and very low-maintenance gutters are easy to install because they snap together. These durable downspouts are easily removed for cleaning and house painting. The smooth joints, round shape and reduced friction insure fast water flow keeping debris to a minimum which is most important when making a buying decision. The reinforced rim insures a straight attractive profile and prevents the gutter from bowing, warping or sagging.

Now what? Bring in a drawing of your home with the dimensions and we can help you configure the materials to fit your needs. Although cleaning gutters is a task most homeowners do themselves, it can be dangerous so take precautions.
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, falls from ladders send more than 240,000 Americans to hospital emergency rooms. Climb the first two steps to determine if the ground is level. For soft soil, place plywood under the legs of the ladder. You should also make sure not to rest the ladder on the gutters themselves because the additional weight and pressure can cause them to collapse. Protect your home and get those gutters in check and ready for winter with Long Bros.
