Half-Round Gutter Installations

Possibly one of the most commonly overlooked, but critical components of a building is its gutter system. Once a roof does its job of shedding water, that water needs to be collected and conducted to the ground. While some instances call for a celebration of this vital part of the building others call for a inconspicuous means of serving the function. Century Slate has solutions to getting water to the ground that meet virtually any need.

K-Style Gutter Installations

Ogee style gutters can be found on many of today’s new buildings. Half-round gutters are reminiscent of old-world architecture yet lend themselves to incorporation with some of the most modern designs. Custom designs to match any conceivable profile can be created for a truly one of a kind look. Gutters can even be built into a structure to eliminate their appearance.

Custom Gutter Installations

Century Slate chooses works with the best materials to provide long lasting function of the gutter systems we build. Hangers and brackets can be made out of bar stock for example, a much stronger design and composition than that of the standard gutter systems available. Hangers are properly spaced to ensure that when a gutter contains its maximum volume of water, it stays fixed in its intended position. Instead of using sealant that will only offer at best a few years of service, Century Slate hand solders the seams, outlets, miters, and end caps. This provides for a whole system that will provide decades of service without required maintenance.
