  • Apartment Building Gutter Repair

    Gutters repaired like new in apartment building.Gutters repaired like new on apartment building. Click photo to view at larger size.As a landlord or building manager, we know it can be frustrating when a tenant causes damage to your property.  Here's an example where a tenant inadvertently backed into the gutters on a rental unit with a moving van when they were moving in.  We were able to remove the damaged parts of the gutter system and replace with them with new components.  As you can see from the "after" image, the result is just like new -- you can't even tell there was a repair done.  We were able to handle the repairs without the landlord being on site, saving him time during his busy workday.

    These are gutters that we installed previously, but we can also repair gutters that other companies have installed.  We offer gutter repair services throughout South Puget Sound, including the greater Olympia and Tacoma area.

    Whether it's a broken downspout or a gutter that isn't draining properly, we can fix it for you.

  • How Do Gutters Affect Your Home Value?

    Gutters add a finished look and value to your home.When people think of ways to improve the market value of their home, usually the first things they consider are the "sexy" projects, like kitchen remodels, jetted bathroom tubs and new decks.

    But as it turns out, a clean, working set of gutters can have a big impact on the value of your home as well.

    Undeniably, your home's "curb appeal" has a big effect how people perceive its value. You might have the most beautiful kitchen cabinets and fancy stainless steel appliances in your kitchen, but if the outside of your house looks unkept, a prospective buyer may never bother to look inside.

    A clean, maintained gutter system adds a finished look to your home. This also shows prospective buyers that you take the time to maintain your property and do preventive maintenance. Even if you're not on the market right now to sell your home, you are contributing to the overall value of homes in your neighborhood by keeping your gutters and the rest of the exterior of your home maintained and in good repair.

    Just as important is the effect gutters have on critical components of your home, like windows, exterior paint and the foundation. In a wet climate like ours, lack of a working gutter system can cause unnecessary wear on paint. Rain can also compromise the joints in your siding. And

  • Inspect Your Gutter System for Leaks and Overflow

    Ed Steffen, Owner of Capitol GutterThis weekend, we are getting our first significant rain for the coming winter season. It's really something how it can be 75 degrees and sunny for weeks, and the weather just turns on a dime and it becomes the rainy season here in the Pacific Northwest.

    Now that the rainy season has started, your home gutter system is getting its first test for the fall. Make sure to take a few minutes to visually inspect your gutter system and check for the following:

    Leaks - Are there areas that are dripping down against the foundation of your house? Make sure to pay particular attention to joints and corners. They are sealed with caulk and this caulking can fail over time.

    • Overflowing - Water should not be accumulating in your gutters. It should flow freely. If you see water overflowing anywhere in your gutter system, there is a blockage somewhere that needs to be removed.
    • Downspouts - If it's raining and your downspouts aren't releasing any water, there is blockage or leaking somewhere in your gutter system.

    If you suspect something is wrong with your gutter system, give Capitol Gutter a call. We are happy to make a free inspection and evaluation of your gutter system and give you a free estimate for repairs.

    Don't let the winter go by with a failing gutter system.
