Your home is your biggest and most important investment, and your roof is designed to protect it. To prevent water damage and mold, you need gutters that redirect rain promptly and effectively away from your home. Our professionals at Weather Tight specialize in gutter systems for water removal—let us recommend and install one that’s tailored to your home.
Why Gutters Make a World of Difference
Gutters are your first line of defense against rainy Wisconsin springs and snowy Wisconsin winters. They collect rain water, direct it to downspouts, and safely drain it to a designated place or sewer. A properly sloped roof and seamless gutters remove water before it can harm your home and yard.
One of the more common complaints we hear about rain water runoff is pooling at the home’s foundation, which suggests an improper installation or a clogged or damaged system. Standing water will soak into the ground and flood your basement, or cause serious foundation damage—both of which require costly repairs. A better and more affordable approach is to prevent these issues and protect your home with gutters that look great and rarely need cleaning.
Leave the Installation to the Pros at Weather Tight
Before any gutter installation, our professionals inspect your home’s exterior, measure its square footage, and select the correct gutter system. We bring equipment on-site—for every installation—that allows us to create custom seamless gutter systems, instead of just connecting pieces every five or 10 feet. This means almost no chance of leaks and a lifetime of reliable performance.
With a Weather Tight installation, your gutters will be leak-free, angled for optimal water flow, and professionally secured to your home with brackets designed for strength and durability, without damaging your siding or roof. Once installed, gutters will go to work:
- Moving water to sewers or a selected area, away from your home
- Preventing water from damaging your home’s roof and siding
- Protecting your home’s foundation and basement against flooding
Better still, when you pair our well-designed gutter system with our gutter protection, you’ll eliminate clogging. Forget about messy, dangerous gutter cleaning because leaves, branches, and other debris won’t get in. Even shingle grit and dirt will be easily washed away with each rain, rather than building up and blocking water.
If your gutters are causing problems, choose the Weather Tight experience—call our experts at 414-459-3874 or contact us online. We offer a free consultation and are happy to share our professional recommendations for repairs and replacements. In some cases, we may recommend a soffit and fascia replacement at the same time, so all your concerns are taken care of at once. Your home’s safety and comfort are important to us.

How much does it cost to replace gutters?
Gutter replacement costs can vary based on the size of your home, the features of your roof, and many other factors. Your Weather Tight representative will be happy to give you a no-hassle quote to help you discover how affordable new gutters can be.
Do I need to get gutter protection WITH new gutters?
Gutter protection is optional but highly recommended. If you’re investing in new gutters, protection will make them maintenance-free and keep them running smoothly for years to come.
What type of gutters are best?
Seamless aluminum gutters last for years with little maintenance required. With gutter protection, you won’t need to get on a ladder as many times to clean out the gutters, and maintaining them is much easier.
How often do you need to replace your gutters?
If you make the right choice in gutter replacement, you will only need to replace them once. Seamless gutters from Weather Tight can last a lifetime.
How do you clean your gutters?
You can clean gutters without gutter protection with a leaf blower by running a hose through the gutter or by hand. Clean your gutters in the spring and fall (and any time you notice improper draining).
How can you prevent gutters from getting clogged? Are my gutters draining correctly?
Gutters should drain out of the bottom. You should never see water coming over the top of the gutter or leaking. Properly draining gutters will protect your home from damage. The best way to keep your gutters clear is by installing gutter protection over the top of the gutter.
What materials are gutters made of?
Gutters are made from aluminum, specially coated to match your trim, and blend flawlessly with your home’s exterior. No one wants their gutters the main focus of their home, but they should complement the surrounding components like the soffit and fascia.
Can you replace gutters yourself?
Gutters are not a DIY home project. Improper installation can block your home’s ventilation, damage the exterior trim, soffit, and fascia, and lead to many issues down the road. Gutters should be installed by a professional.
Should you replace your gutters with your new roof?
If you’re getting a new roof installed, it’s a great time also to replace your gutters. When your Weather Tight representative assesses your roof, they will examine the condition of your gutters at your request and let you know if you should consider replacement.
