Gutter Outlets | Precision Gutters and Exteriors | Surrey BC
Types of Gutter Outlets
Basic vinyl gutter outlets can fail shortly after installation. Available in a 1-7/8” size for 2” downpipes and 2-3/8” for 2×3 downpipes they are often undersized restricting flow volumes. Basic gutter outlets are easily plugged creating overflow issues that will cause water damage to the home and landscaping.
U.V. degradation and age will break down the vinyl, causing it to fail and leak outside of the downpipe and in some cases causing the pipe to separate from the gutter.
On average, vinyl outlets will need to be replaced two or three times over the lifespan of the gutters.
Flush mount aluminum gutter outlets will last as long as your gutters! The standard size is 2 ¾ inches, offering double the drainage volume of a small vinyl outlet and installed with removable strainers for easy cleaning.
Aluminum will not break down from sun exposure and the pipe will remain attached to the gutter.
Precision’s K-funnel and Fascia-funnel gutter outlets allow high volume drainage flushing small debris through the pipe system. Downpipes that terminate into drain tile will require a leaf catcher. These outlets are very effective in minimizing maintenance when your system is overwhelmed with fir needles.
The K-Funnel, also designed by our maintenance team, is a low-profile funnel that allows for larger debris to flow into the downpipes without restriction. The debris will then be caught in the Leaf Catcher down below. Precision Gutters can customize your rain gutters with K-Funnel outlets and keep your gutters flowing smoothly.
