Sudbury Seamless Gutters is a family-owned and operated business in the Boston Metrowest area. Our reputation has been built upon over 33 years of superior service and craftsmanship in custom gutter installation. We use "K" style 5'' and 6'' seamless aluminum and copper. Half round SEAMLESS 5" and 6".
Our downspout outlets are 2 3/4". The standard size is 2 3/8"! All downspouts are screwed together using stainless steel, non-rusting hex-head screws. We then secure downspouts to the house using a hidden cleat. We do not use unsightly straps over the front of the downspouts. This type of installation prevents joints from coming apart in the years to come.
Half-round gutters were the traditional gutter style on homes built before 1950 and remain a popular choice in historic renovation projects, traditional renovations, and new upscale custom housing.
The simple lines of half-round gutters compliment heavily textured materials such as slate, shakes, and tiles.
The gutter pitch will be set with a chalk line and level. All roof rafter ends are located and marked. Heavy-duty hidden bar hangers are positioned over each rafter end. The gutter is secured using the Raytec Hangfast hanger. Our entire installation method is designed to withstand the ice and snow build-up typical of New England winters.
Downspouts are located and marked using lasers as needed.
After carefully removing old gutters, we will make sure the fascia is in good condition. If fascia replacement is needed we do it. The position of the new gutters may need to be different fom the original. You may have to do some minor paint touch-up of your fascia boards. Next we clean the entire work area and properly remove and dispose of the old gutters
If fascia replacement is needed we offer pre-primed pine or PVC. We paint the new fascia to match your existing.

Gutters themselves do not cause ice dams and the resulting water back-up. Rather, ice dams occur when snow builds up and remains on the roof during a cold snap. The snow under the pile melts, travels down the roof a ways, then re-freezes, forming an acumulative wall of ice. Later, when more snow melts, the water running down the roof is stopped by the ice and backs up under the shingles. This can cause leaking into the attic and utlimately through the ceilings and walls.If the attic, vaulted ceiling, or knee-walls are properly insulated and ventilated then this problem should not occur.
We have a sister business called Marlborough Gutter Cleaning.
Gutters should be cleaned at least once a year. For those of you who have trees located close to your house or pine trees on your property you should consider cleaning twice a year (spring and fall).
Even though our outlets are 60% larger than the standard, the proper operation of the gutter system may require a yearly cleaning.
