10919 S. W. Aventine Ave., Portland, Oregon

This was a simple house structure hidden from the street, so it was hard to get a photo of the whole house. This client opted for custom trays, instead of normal downspouts for added headroom. We also covered the fascia, rake boards and made a ridge cap for moss control with 20oz copper. We also designed and built a copper/stainless steel chimney cap to replace the aluminum cap he had. He wanted something very simple and plain.

This was a house on the ridge with a nice view of NW Portland. This was one of the only copper gutter clients who opted out of the larger No-clog outlets on all but 3 out of 14.

The Drummond House - 20oz Copper Gutters & DS Replacement (11/13) $6,778.20
3637 N. E. Shaver, Portland, Oregon

This was a cute little house with an unusual arch in front. The rain management next to the front door was especially tricky with about half the front roof draining at the base of this valley. The back gutters had just the one downspout, and I was able to eliminate the elbows on the short lower gutter by wrapping around the back door roof cover.

She had a Contractor called Lifetime Exteriors replace her siding, but the roof flashing on the dormers was not done right, so I called for her to compel them to replace it right with some copper flashing I provided.

The Church House - 20oz Copper Gutter, DS, & Fascia Metal Installation (8/13) $34,346.55
7100 Dear Trail Rd., Canton, Ohio

This was an unusual project, where we were paid an extra $4k to drive cross Country on a long 5k mile round trip to Canton, Ohio for a Client named Mark & Cathy Church for their copper gutter job. It was quite the adventure, given I had never traveled East of the Rockies before this. Can you imagine what we must have looked like to the other drivers along the freeway? We were able to stop in to visit our Sisters in Utah and Colorado along the way. We also got to see Mount Rushmore on the way back, but the Pioneer Auto Show was more interesting.

A few months earlier Mark had contracted us provided copper and aluminum flashing parts for his reroofing project, so we had shipped those prior to this trip. He was diligent to get us careful measurements and photos for us to spend a month before the trip getting the gutter parts prepared ready to install, as you see here above.

 We brought fascia and rake edge covers with us to install before the gutter went on, but the local Contractor had reported to us they were to cover 1X6 boards, yet in fact they were 2X6, so we had to wait for them to replace all the fascia boards, so these covers would fit and not wasted material. The rake edge were too difficult to remove, so they are going to have to replace those covers we made and install later on, so we did not get shots of this all finished up nice.

I also made them a weathervane roof mount you see in front of the chimney with this Golfer style weathervane. Just click on this photo to see a larger full screen copy.

$6,825.25 - aluminum & copper roof flashing
$5,298.43 - long distance delivery fee and crates

The Hepper House - 20oz Copper Gutters & DS Replacement (1-2/13) $14,056.66
1507 S. E. Lexington, Portland, Oregon

 Pam & Rick Hepper knew us through their Daughter-inlaw who also is a Midwife. This was an old house that was not well maintained, so we had to replace the fascia boards as well. They wanted the front gutters to drain into a pair of rain barrels.

.

The Bingham House - 20oz Copper Gutters & DS Replacement (8/12) $16,500.64
11775 S. W. Lynnfield, Beaverton, Oregon

Barbara & Kurt Bingham contacted me to replace their gutters with copper, redo the DS on the guest house and add screens. I also helped them out with a problem they had with the daylight dining room that had, so I offered them a less costly solution to seal up their 16 larger skylight windows that were leaking.

I heard they had gotten bids for around $27k from other Contractors to repair their sunroom, but for about $2k I was able to add more insulation, dampen the intensity of the sunlight, add impact resistance, and the condensation between the glass is less noticeable. They may still decide to have this room rebuilt some day, but this reasonable cost solution can buy them several years to decide what they want to do with it.

Tom contacted me for a bid to solve an issue that he was told was very complicated to replace their gutters. I brought my big ladder out with me to see them up close and found out it would not be very complicated at all. There were regular K-5 gutters up there that looked like built in gutters with wood trim under them. I added some flashing under the gutter just over the wood trim to help keep it dry.

Paul Hart had searched to find my web site after he was fed up with his crappy steel gutters he hire another Contractor to put up less than 5 years prior. He contacted me 6/10 about replacing those new gutters on their house with copper. He liked that ideas I had for several improvement. He was impressed to see how spent over 3 weeks to carefully do what the last Gutter Contractor did in just a couple days.

I noticed problems with how the glass panes are secured and sealed over their green house that's built off the end of their house. I suggested resealing them and covering the braces with copper caps to help minimize the mildew growth, so their having us do that as soon as we can fit it into our schedule.

Geoff Henderson moved his family up here from San Francisco. He found my web site and contacted me through e-mail about replacing the gutter on their new house with copper. They've been remodeling this house and landscaping the yard that had been let go for some time. This house had a rather unusual roofline where the gutters had to be mounted at a slope to catch the rain from the roof, so instead of just a small outlet I suggested a pair of corner scuppers to drain the rush of rain water into. He liked that idea and chose this style for us to make. It was a little tricky to navigate the elbows over onto the wall mounted downspout.

They have been remodeling this house over the last year or so, and copper gutters  was last on the list.

The Wolfgang House - 20oz Copper Gutter installation (2/09) $8,851.65
 7200 S. W. Sylvan Ct., Portland, Oregon

Ken and Jana Wolfgang found my web site and contacted me 10/08 to get a bid for copper gutters. They had all the old plastic gutter removed and the fascia boards replaced, so there were no gutters to remove. Later they had me make copper ridge cap for a hidden vented roof and other flashing for the reroofing they had done. I also made them this custom vent cap on the right.

This was a fairly simple gutter installation that only took 2 days, after spending a couple days in my shop processing these gutters and Leaf-catchers. I made a suggestion to connect the 2 front gutters with this short gutter you see above the small step ladder. That will act as an overflow in case the outlet on the other end were to clog. They plan to have me add copper ridge caps for moss control.

South East Portland, Oregon (address by request only)

I was really jazzed to be working on this house restoration. He found me doing a search for this web site and first contacted me back in December of 2007 to get a bid for copper gutter. After presenting him with my formal quote for $15k he disclosed to me how the other gutter contractor had wanted $29k, so my bid was about half of their bid.

The Lenio House - 20oz Copper Gutter Job + + (9/08) $6,383.85
6124 S. E. 20th, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by a very nice couple: Michael and Meri Lenio in the Sellwood area. Their house had recently installed aluminum gutters that were pulling loose already. They had me replace the fascia boards mounted with 3.5" screws and covered up the water damaged soffit, so I had something solid to mount the new copper gutters to.

I happen to notice how the rear 4x10 beam of the car port was extremely rotten and the carport was at great risk of falling over, so they had me work on that as well. They were so happy with my work they gave me over $50 above the final invoice. They were so pleased with my work they called me back to cover the side and front rake edge boards as well with copper. They are thinking about having me rebuild their back deck as well.

$     50.00 - worked to clear out the back storm drain
$   563.50 - 72.25 ln' of 2x4 primed and painted fascia boards replaced
$   725.25 - 115.5 sq' of hardwood plywood soffit w/12 intake roof vents

The Blanchard House - 16oz Copper Gutter Job + (7-8/08) $9,703.50
9625 N. W. Skyline Blvd., Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by Debra Blanchard.  This is a very unusual house with a very rustic charm tucked up off the road where you cannot see it from the street with forested land and privacy.

This house had built-in gutters installed, but dud not work well. She needed me to trim down the angled fascia boards and outer face of the steel gutters to cover them with a 9" wide super drip edge flashing and mount copper gutters on the outside.

I had to build a wedge piece to go the length of the gutter that mounted to the back of the gutters to hold it level on this angles fascia board. She opted for the black steel screens over the copper screens, since for half the cost they are likely to last just as well.

She was partial to the rain chains she had, but these fancy copper rain-cups look and work a lot better

$1,748.25 - 155.4 ln' of 20oz copper 9" wide supper drip-edge flashing

The Holbrook House - 20oz Copper Gutter Job + (6-7/08) $9,395.29
5406 S. E. 39th, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by Ned & Sarah Holbrook.  This is a very unusual house with a very rustic charm tucked up where you cannot see from the street. I was amazed to find a house in this area of Town that had so much land and privacy. This house never had gutters installed and they needed me to trim back these extended rafter tails to mount sturdy copper gutters to.

I wound up having to build some extensive scaffolding just to access the roof on the side and rear of the house because of the heights and thick foliage around the house. I also needed to add a good 95' of 3" ABS storm drain piping to get the run-off away from the foundation.

$   700.00 - 133 rater tails cut back

The Wright House - 20oz Copper Gutter Job (4/08) $6,531.90
5135 S. W. Nebraska, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by James & Mary Wright.  This is an interesting house that has one of the neatest enclosed porches I have seen. They wanted me to replace their old steel fascia gutters with nice sturdy copper gutters that work.

I needed to mount the gutters lower to allow for possible snow loads to slide off without thrashing the gutters. They later asked me to make them some custom copper flashing to cover the exposed fascia boards over the gutters.

This also gave the screens a good sturdy surface to rest on, since they cannot set over the metal roofing like I do with most installations. I bent all the edges of the metal roof panels down to be a proper drip edge, so the rain is much less likely to shoot over the top of the gutter in a heavy down pour. I was called in later to replace these flimsy copper screens with the black steel screens I now use on copper gutter jobs, as they had gotten bent terribly out of shape from snow loads we got in the Winter of 09.

Below shows how I was able to eliminate the diagonal DS pipe over the window by making the gutter wrap around the corner to the DS 7' back

$3,760.90 - 252.04 ln' of 20oz copper gutters & DS w/removal

1565 S. E. Miller, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by Jim & Sherry Burles.  This is an cute old house they restored. They wanted to replace the plastic gutters (shown in this first photo) with nice sturdy copper gutters that work.

They later asked me to make them some custom scuppers to dress up the front columns of their house and cover some of the rake edge boards with copper instead of working to strip them for repainting.

1536 S. E. Division, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by Eric Skinner and his partner.  This is an interesting old brick house with a clay tile roof. They wanted to replace the old half round rusty steel gutters with nice sturdy copper gutters that work. The client did the gutter removal so he could replace some of the fascia boards that were ruined by the old half round gutters.

They needed some minor flashing work as well to replace some rusty steel flashing that was missed by the roofer who installed the tile roof. You can see the mildew stains down the bricks from the old gutters here in the right photo.

The Gerber Project - 20oz Copper Gutter Job & Entry Roof Cover (11/07) $1,891.80
265 N. W. Royal Blvd., Portland, Oregon
This was for a general contractor working on this home doing a lot of remodel work and he had built this entry roof. He had gotten a bid from Monavilla Sheetmetal of $5k for just this roof cover in a thinner 16oz copper sheet metal. I was able to provide all this and the gutters in a thicker 20oz copper for less than half the cost, along with assistance installing it as well. It only has this one seam under the upper gutter that has a 6" overlap.

The Stevenson Home - 20oz Copper Gutter Job (4 & 10-11/07) $7,531.05
2397 S. W. Montgomery, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by Jean Stevenson.  This is a grand old house up in the West Hills area.

They had several different contractors attempt to fix her gutter problems in the past and I was amazed with some of the crazy ideas they had that did not work. It was a collection of the worst repairs I have ever seen. They had me replace her gutter system and built-in scuppers with nice sturdy copper and aluminum gutters that work.

They had me replace 6 custom scuppers in aluminum and copper for the 2 built-in scuppers, so they would last. The last repairman had covered her rusty steel with aluminum foil as a fix to keep it from leaking into the house walls. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it! The rust holes were large enough to pass my fist through (as you can see). The next photo shows the temporary repair with aluminum I did just to get them by a few months, until I could fit their job in my schedule and fix this properly with copper.

Believe it or not the previous front gutter repair was even more ridiculous.

3565 N.E. 25th, Portland, Oregon
This house is owned by an Attorney David Lesh (http://www.davidlesh.net/).  Around 10 years earlier I had replaced the gutters on his house on the corner of 17th and Fremont in white pre-painted aluminum to match the house trim paint. I had featured the special work of his house on our web site since it's beginning.

The funny thing was how the General Contractor rebuilding this house was having the roofing replaced. They had me cover it the with the 20oz copper sheet metal. The gutters were gone, so I asked about having me install the gutters in aluminum or perhaps a matching copper, but he said he already had a gutter contractor lined up to do it. Then a year later I am contacted By Mr. Lesh to replace the cheap steel gutters that were just put up with our copper gutter system and add some gutters on the sides. The steel gutters were already failing.

The Buck House - 20oz Copper Gutter Job (9/06) $3,924.72
28009 S. E. Sweetbriar Rd., Troutdale, Oregon

I removed the old steel fascia gutters to install our new 20oz copper gutters for Cam Buck. The original bid on 3-23-06 was for $3,753.50, just 5 days before we found out that copper prices were sky-rocketing. We were stuck at that price, since Cam had agree to the terms and put the 1/3 down deposit just within the 30 days. The cost of copper had over double by the time we got a chance to do this work. We still recalculated the cost to reflect only the materials used. A savings of $305.18.

The original bid on 11-19-05 was for $7,955.96, but they waited until 3-28-06 to agree to the terms and put the 1/3 down deposit. The cost of copper had risen considerably, so we had to charge more, but with only half the screens it raised the cost to only $8,152.40. Then later with more changes of adding some drip-edge flashing and screens all around; the final cost was only $8,164.30 for everything after we had recalculated the cost to reflect only the materials used and a 25% discount on all the screens, which was a savings of $457.07.

The Masood Mansion - 20oz Copper Gutter Job (11/05) $2,645.31
just off Peets Mountain Rd., West Linn, Oregon

There is a small section of a 20oz copper gutters we contracted to replace on the opposite corner of this house for Mr. Masood.  It is a high security gated house, so you would not be able to get close enough to get a look at the back gutter work we did unless you are strolling the golf coarse behind them.  These copper gutters are to replace the steel concave fascia gutters that had clogged even though they have no tall trees near the house. He had us replace just that back corner of the house that was giving them the most grief for now, and wanted me to do the whole house later. We ran into conflicts that could not be resolved, so I refunded his deposit for the rest of the work.

The Stakely House - 16oz Copper Gutter Job (6/05) $2,119.16
S. E. Portland, Oregon
Here is a small copper gutter job we did for Stakely.  They wanted copper gutters. Being a small house, this is not so costly at only $1.5k for everything but leaf screens over the gutters.  They plan to get screens from us later, but I had pointed out to them with digital photos how they needed to have the chimneys re-flashed. They even put off the fence work for now to get that work done first.

We also re-flashed the back chimney at the cost of $625

The Scott & Cynthia Kistler Home - 16oz Copper Gutter Job (12/04) $8,063.10
2325 A St., Forest Grove, Oregon
Here is a copper gutter job I did for a nice couple in Forest Grove.  They have been working hard to personally remodel the inside, but got help to do the outside work. This is listed on the Historical Registry, so they needed to make sure the remodeling would be done right.

The aluminum gutters they had were hung from thin aluminum straps nailed on the roof, and some had fallen off after a few years, so they had the painters tear off the rest of the gutters and downspouts.  They had paid $23k just to have their house paint removed.  And another $13k to have it primed and a 4 tone paint job done.  Their house is on the Historical registry, so they were perplexed to figure out how to solve their gutter problems.

They had spent a few years trying to find a gutter contractor to even give them a bid for the work they needed, but were unsuccessful.  They were thrilled to finally find our web site and see how we have already done this kind of work on houses that were originally designed not to be able to mount gutters onto. 

In our original bid to add the drip edge that the roofers neglected to install, and to build out the eaves of the roof in order to mount the 175' of new aluminum gutters onto, the downspouts, and the No-clog options had come to $4,600 total.

After seeing our bid, the Kistlers then asked us for a price on 16oz copper gutters with the mitered endcapping.  This added only $3,200 more to the cost, for a total of $7,800.  They put down $3,900 to have us schedule it in, even though we were booked 3 months out.  They latter added the heavy gauge 20oz copper gutters to our bid.  The final cost was $8,063.10 for everything after we recalculated the cost to reflect only the materials used.  So the heavy-duty copper only added $263.10 to the original bid

Click on the photos above to see more clarity and detail.  I had taken over 300 photos, so I spaced out this project over 8 separate web pages, with the most detailed info on this web site for gutter fabrication. There is also photos from several years after installation.

The Barry Hill Home - 20oz Copper Gutter Job (10/04) $5,609.80
17315 S. Bradley, Oregon City, Oregon
Here is a copper gutter job I did for the Hill family.  The original bid for aluminum gutters was $1,100 and the no-clog options came to another $943, so the total was a little over $2k. They put $1k down as a deposit that same night we did the bid, but was not sure if they wanted to go with the copper gutters instead.

They later decided to go with the copper gutters at $4.8k. Then just before doing the work, they decided to go the extra cost for the heavy gauge 20oz copper for the gutters.  This was our first copper gutter job we got for the heavy gauge copper.  It was noticeable stronger and heavier.

That cost them $5,609.80 to install the 191.5' of heavy gauge 20oz copper gutters plus the downspouts, along with the No-clog options and all the advanced features we offer, short of the embossed gutters shown at the bottom of this page, since we have not yet had a taker on that feature.

The Dale Yocum House - 16oz Copper Gutter Job (8/02 & 3/05) $14,211
4343 S. W. Fairview Blvd., Portland, Oregon

This a large 16oz copper gutter job I did back for a client that lives just above the Metro Zoo.  I did $14,211 worth of work in copper, wood, aluminum, plastic, and brick for them.

We later were called back to make a small custom gutter to go around the balcony, so the railing can be attached outside that.

We were called back to fabricate a custom white painted aluminum cover for two window sills.  One that had developed such dry-rot that it was growing mushrooms out of the wood.  We also cleaned the debris off the roof while there.  They report to have not needed to service the gutters at all since they were installed.

The Bradshaw House - Larger K-6 Copper Gutter Job (8/00 & 5/04) $14,921
9852 N. W. Kaiser Rd., Portland, Oregon
Here is a huge copper gutter job I did with over 850' of larger K-6" gutters for a client just North of Beaverton.  It cost them about $13k for us to rent a K-6" gutter machine and run the 3" wider metal through it to make those larger copper gutters.

They latter had us return to install aluminum gutters on their 85' long barn.  Then a few years latter to do roof cleaning and moss treatment.  I trust that this repeat business is a good indication of customer satisfaction.  See our 'Referral' web page for our written referrals.

These photos are several years after we installed the gutters on the house, so it shows how they look dark brown after about 4 years of tarnishing.  It actually takes several decades to get that chalky green tarnish look.
