RainTech Gutter Solutions is family owned and operated: (L to R) Tyler Watkins, Todd Kaser, Freddie Watkins and Marsha Watkins.
Your gutters are more important to your home’s condition and appearance than you might think – bad gutters (or no gutters) can lead to foundation, siding and landscape damage. RainTech Gutter Solutions specializes in installing seamless guttering and solid leaf protection systems. They use the best materials and offer a wide selection of options to their customers.
“We can install seamless guttering on any house,” says owner Freddie Watkins. “We do residential and commercial guttering. We’ll give you a fast, free estimate, and our products have a lifetime guarantee. We also do clean-outs and maintenance.
“New seamless guttering can be very important for the well-being of your home. It will channel water away from your foundations, and keep it from flooding your flowerbeds and staining the sides of your house. Our guttering comes in 30 colors, in copper, and in aluminum. It comes in five-inch, six-inch, and half-round, which is a great decorative option. And all our guttering is easy to maintain.”
Watkins has been doing guttering for over a decade. “I’ve been doing it in Oklahoma for the last 12 years,” he says. RainTech is family owned and operated. They are a member of the Better Business Bureau and the Home Builders Association of Tulsa.
J.C. Hamling, installation manager at RainTech, takes care of the company’s crews and service calls.
RainTech is fully insured, and never uses subcontractors. “We have a friendly staff, and we’re easy to work with,” says Watkins. “We take care to do the job right. Our goal is 100 percent customer satisfaction. J.C. Hamling is our installation manager – he takes care of our crews and all our service calls.”
RainTech also offers several state-of-the-art gutter protection systems that can be installed over your existing gutters. They guarantee you won’t have to clean your gutters again – ever – and they come with the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.
The Gutter Topper offers attractive, safe and strong gutter protection. It comes in 12 colors, plus copper, to match your roof color. It also blends with your roof line. The Gutter Topper is made from heavy-duty .024 aluminum, and it comes with a baked-on enamel finish that won’t rust or chip.
The Leaf Terminator is a great choice for keeping pine and fir needles out of your gutters. It’s made from .032 heavy-duty commercial grade aluminum, but it blends with your roof line. “The Leaf Terminator is very low-profile compared to other gutter guards,” says Watkins. It comes in five colors, plus copper, features the baked-on enamel finish, and is particularly great for homes with cisterns and for those harvesting rainwater.
Both of these gutter protection systems are designed and tested to withstand strong winds, heavy downpours, and massive amounts of snow. Both eliminate the dangers and hassles of cleaning your gutters, and both protect your walls, foundation and basement from gutter overflow.
If you don’t have gutter protection, RainTech recommends cleaning your gutters four to six times a year. “If your gutters are clogged, water can sit in them, which can pull your gutters away from the house. That will let water in and cause rot,” says Watkins.
