Approximately 1,000 lineal ft. of RHEINZINK® gutters and downspouts provide great looks and better drainage for one Greenwich, CT, residence.
Builder Joe Melendez of Greenwich Specialties, Inc. is a regular user of RHEINZINK gutters on the homes he designs. “The system performs great,” Melendez said, “and I like the way the RHEINZINK looks with the stone façade and slate roof.”
Unlike traditional gutter systems, RHEINZINK half-round gutters are supported from below with brackets rather than hung from above. Cradling a gutter from below is structurally preferred and also helps provide a clear and uninterrupted waterway for cleaning and maintenance. The half-round shape also reduces the dependence on slope to move water compared to flat-bottom gutter designs.
The distributor for the RHEINZINK gutter products on the Greenwich residence was CT Roofing Reps, Inc., East Berlin, CT.
