Our Gutter Products
It is a misconception that Fall is the time homeowners should seriously consider the condition of their gutter system because of the number of leaves shed by surrounding trees and onto the gutter system; however, the appropriate time is during the Spring. After winter and the continuous cycle of snow, rain, freeze, melt, this is the season that we can determine just how the homeowner’s gutter system performed over the cold winter.
We know that those Springtime storms often reveal the weakness in guttering systems as those weaknesses present themselves with water damage to foundations, windows, structural wood, and the like. None of these problems are cheap and easy to remedy. However, we can help prevent these things by installing the products on your home, which will keep it watertight and safe.
When a professional from Maple Leaf Gutter Systems meets with you to find out your concerns and needs, we promise you that you will feel confident and knowledgeable about the system you have chosen when we leave your home. There is no pressure selling. Just an old-fashioned conversation about your concerns, needs, expectations, and then we will tell you how we can accomplish those things.
We realize that your home is the most significant investment you have, and it holds all your hopes, dreams, and memories. It also contains your loved ones. Together, we can help give you a sense of relief and satisfaction, knowing that you have chosen the right product and the right company.
We use the industry standard for professionally installed aluminum gutters, which is a .027 gauge. This is a medium-weight aluminum compared to the .025 gutter systems that are sold in home supply stores. The gutters are milled on-site and immediately installed.
Your gutters are available in a wide array of colors. Please make sure to ask for the color samples. We can create your gutters to blend in with your fascia and soffit color, or we can assist you in choosing a bold and beautiful color to give your home detail and a wow-factor that will leave your neighbors envious.

A frieze board is essentially a horizontal board between 2 inches and 6 inches wide, but this can vary for specific applications.
A brick box is a type of house-made mostly of brick. Frieze boards are placed on brick box houses near the top, where they cover the gap between the soffit and the wall or the gap between the soffit and the brick. In most cases, one solid board is used for this purpose, but if you don’t have the right size width board, one can be built to your exact specification.
While having recently surged in popularity here in North America, rain chains have been used for centuries in Asia. They originated in Japan, where they are called kusari-doi. Today, they are still used to keep water runoff away from the roofs of both homes and religious temples. Like many items that hail from Japan, rain chains are a perfect mix of functionality and beauty. Direct and straightforward, rain chains offer curb appeal— even if they’re just for show. Many homeowners will cover the drain below a rain chain with assorted pebbles and stones in keeping with the Japanese tradition.
We all know that old muddied leaves wreak havoc on gutters. Did you know rain chains, by design, are much less likely to clog? There is simply no space for leaves and other debris to pass through these chains. Only water can move freely through them. And that’s one less thing to worry about. Gutter downspouts are industrial by default. It should be no surprise, then, that they can sound clunky and unnatural when rain is rushing down them.
On the other hand, rain chains were explicitly designed to create beautiful sounds during rainfalls. During showers and storms, water will cascade down rain chains, creating an almost waterfall-like sound effect. Psychologists consider moving water to be a form of white noise— a calming alternative to silence that famously soothes and relaxes fussy babies and overextended adults!

Next time it rains, think about how much water you could be collecting in a rain barrel. For every inch of rain that falls on a 1,000-square-foot roof, you can gather about 600 gallons of water, and by utilizing rain barrels for non-potable water needs like landscaping, you can help reduce the strain on municipal water supplies while lowering your water bill.
Water treatment facilities use a considerable amount of energy delivering clean water to your tap and treating your wastewater, and they pass on the costs to you. According to the EPA, every year, the average household spends up to $500 on water and sewer bills. Using rainwater rather than city water for plant irrigation can save you money. During the peak months of summer, watering plants with collected rainwater will allow most homeowners to conserve about 1,300 gallons of water.
Most of the water we use to irrigate our plants is drinking water. Did you know that 40 percent of a household’s total water use is dedicated to watering plants and lawns? Rainwater is nature’s free source of water that contains no chlorine, calcium, or lime. In this way, rainwater is better for most plants than chemically-treated water— it’s softer and lower in acidity. It can also be used to top off the swimming pool or wash the car. Note, however, that roofing materials may contain hazardous chemicals; therefore, the National Resources Defense Council recommends you avoid using rain barrel water on edible plants.
Urban runoff is a significant cause of water pollution. Much of the rainfall hits roads, sidewalks, and rooftops in urban areas, where it picks up contaminants like oil, animal feces, and trash and carries it into storm sewers. Rain barrels can help preserve the water quality by catching some of the runoff from rooftops before it runs into the storm sewers and storing it for later usage to water lawns, trees, and shrubs.
