A Long-Lasting Gutter Installation System for Homes in Ann Arbor and Cities Across Michigan

Gutter Installation Ann Arbor MI

Many gutters simply fall off the house due to the weight of ice and snow – but there’s more to the story.

Atlas Home Improvement is proud to offer homeowners in Ann Arbor and throughout Michigan the SnapLock Gutter System® – a gutter installation system that is superior to traditional methods in every way. Before SnapLock, every gutter in the United States was attached to the fascia using either nails, spikes, or screws. When holes are made into the back of the gutter system using these fasteners, water can seep into the fascia board. This water will then flow into the holes in the wood fascia, which, over time, begins to rot. Eventually, the strength of each fastener becomes weakened due to the combination of rot and weight (of ice and snow in the gutter). Many homeowners will often see spikes hanging out an inch or so from their gutters. This is an indication that the fascia has been damaged and can no longer hold the hanger or nail.

Prevent Gutter Failures with the SnapLock Gutter System

SnapLock is a revolutionary gutter attachment system available to homeowners only through authorized Gutter Helmet dealers. The system consists of a specially designed SnapLock bracket that allows gutters to be “snapped” into the SnapLock truss receiver mounted on the fascia. A hidden gutter hanger is used for additional support and to ensure proper spacing, but is NOT attached to the fascia. By eliminating an attachment system that penetrates the gutter, SnapLock protects the fascia from water damage. Also, SnapLock gutters are actually stronger and can handle more weight than traditional hangers, yet they literally “float” in place. This allows for the necessary expansion and contraction and keeps the gutter system properly pitched. To learn more, see How It Works.

Above: Traditional attachment systems such as this gutter attached with spike and ferrule often fail during the harsh winter months because the fascia board is rotten and can no longer support the weight of ice and snow. Top Right: “Proud” spikes indicate that the fascia board may be compromised and no longer solid wood. Bottom Right:  Over time this trapped moisture from spikes causes wood rot to the fascia and rafters.

Additional Benefits of the SnapLock Gutter Installation System

Another problem long associated with standard gutter installation methods is that the gutters tend to be placed right up against the fascia board. This can lead to moisture accumulating behind the gutter, which contributes to fascia rot as well as the growth of mold behind or under the gutters. The SnapLock Bracket is designed to push the gutter away from the fascia about 1/4-inch and allows air to get behind the gutter. This ventilation will keep the fascia dry and eliminate mold and mildew, which needs moisture to survive. The SnapLock bracket system is stronger than traditional attachment methods and will help prevent the typical sagging that happens when ice and snow build up tries to pull the gutters off the home. In addition to creating a healthier environment for your family, it looks 100% better than the alternative. The SnapLock bracket system is stronger than traditional attachment methods and will help prevent the typical sagging that happens when ice and snow build up tries to pull the gutters off the home.

Nails or spikes coming loose is a sign the wood may be damaged.

"This was our second experience with Atlas. The shower in our last home was truly a primary selling feature. We returned to Atlas because of the quality of the job and the professionalism of the install. We were happy to see the same installers we had at our other house three years ago arrive here today. Chad and Bill did an excellent job. We received the same professionalism and quality we expected. They arrived with all the materials they would need, no hidden surprises, quality materials. They truly live up to everything they promise!"

"Recently, Atlas Home Improvement finished the second phase of my bathroom remodel. Matt and Chad were here every morning on time, stated in their morning phone call. They were friendly, efficient, knew their job and the job site was always in order and clean. They even went out of their way to make sure I was aware of all aspects of the job. They were GREAT!!! This is a great company!!! Very clean and considerate while putting in my new shower. Time the sales consultant was wonderful and really listened to what I want and was never pushy or tried to sell me something I didn't want. David did a wonderful job installing my shower. Great product they sell. I recommend this company highly!"

– Donna P.

"Dave put in a stair lift for me and I was very, very pleased with the whole experience. He assessed the situation with an eye on my safety and recommended changing the side of the staircase the lift was to be installed on. He did the installation quietly and quickly and without creating any mess. And he made sure I understood how the equipment worked and watched me test ride it. I could not have been more satisfied with the whole process. I would highly recommend Atlas to any senior looking to modify their home so that they can age in place."

– Dorrie R.

"We were experiencing temperature problems with our brand new walk-in tub, in that the temperature would not get very hot. After a call to Atlas we were scheduled by the office staff for an appointment within 2 days, which we very much appreciated. Dave arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the problem - and he quickly fixed it. Dave was very professional, pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our problem has now been fixed! Thank you Atlas for having such a great installation, office, and repair staff."

– Norv S.

"We had our shower completely re-done by Dave. It was a custom job that involved replacing a sub floor and some plumbing issues. They were friendly, hard workers, our shower turned out perfect! I strongly recommend Atlas Home Improvement they stand by their work!"

– Sherry G.

"Our dealings with Atlas Home Improvement have been nothing but a delight. We had booked them through Home Depot Home Services which had a salesman come out and was easy to deal with and took his time to explain all of the steps to the process. Atlas delivered the exact way they had promised we were in the loop knowing when our materials were ordered when they came in and to finally setting up the appointment. The workmanship was 5 star excellent and we could not have been happier with our new shower enclosure it really made a difference!"

– Sharron R.
