OLD MEANS MOLD!
If it’s not SnapLock, It’s Not Permanent
Traditional rain gutters have changed little during the past 100 years. Today, their designs employ spikes, screws, or nails for attachment to your home, just as they did at the turn of the century when Teddy Roosevelt was President. And while this outmoded gutter technology offers satisfactory benefits in the short-term, results over many seasons remain the same: Structural failure because of rot, mold and gutter separation.
The SnapLock Gutter System®… Water Run-Off Management Evolved
The SnapLock Gutter System® eliminates failures due to water damage typically associated with conventional gutter installations. SnapLock’s innovative “No-hole” technology uses no spikes or nails for attachment to your roofline. There is not need to penetrate the front or back of the gutter. The result is a watertight mating of the gutter at the edge of your roof – a seal that prevents seepage, rust, rot and mold. Further, because the integrity of your gutter channel is not riddled with holes, the SnapLock Gutter System dramatically outlasts traditional rain gutters while protecting your home against the hazards associated with bacterial mold and fungus.
If your home is ready for more than merely “conventional and temporary”, you’ll appreciate the structurally sound and techno-logically advanced SnapLock Gutter System®
Home Owners Facts
Q. Why is SnapLock far superior to conventional gutter installations?
A. 3 Critical Reasons:
– There are NO Holes in your gutter which creates a water tight seal.
– The gutters are allowed to move freely which is critical when affixing any type of metal to a structure.
– SnapLock allows for ventilation behind your gutter therefore eliminating condensation so your fascia will stay dry.
Q. How strong is SnapLock?
A. See test results below!
Q. Can I install SnapLock?
A. No, SnapLock must be installed by a authorized dealer, such as The Gutter People of WNY.
Q. Do spike ferrel and hidden hanger installation really cause water damage resulting in rot, mold and falling gutters?
A. Yes, don’t take our word for it, pick a state, look in the yellow pages under gutters and see how many “gutter contractors” are advertising that they will replace rotted fascia boards! Also ask the contractor why they guarantee the material for 30 years but the installation-labor for 1,2 3 years?
Current Maximum Load/ Weight Capacity is as follows:
1-Gallon of Water Weighs 8.3 Ibs.
5″ Gutters –.6234 gal. per ft. = 5.21Ibs. per foot of gutter
6″ Gutters – .92 gal. per ft. = 7.6 lbs. per running ft. of gutter.
Product Testing Inc. performed an independent test of the SnapLock Gutter System® and found that the load capacity when using the SnapLock Gutter System® was 11.3 times or 1130% greater than that of 5″ gutters at full capacity and 7.6 times or 760% greater than that of 6″ gutters at full capacity. These tests prove that the SnapLock system will not only handle the weight of a gutter full of water, but it can also take on heavy gutter loads caused by ice and snow.
