These guys are in Fremont but work in the Omaha area. I know them well and went to High School with one of the owners. They do windows, siding, gutters, etc. They did the windows on the office building at the plant I was at in Omaha Brad.

If you decide to call them talk to Joel and let him know you got their name from me.

I am sure there are a lot of great places closer but this one I can vouch for.

I used Berens Construction for my rain gutters and later for installing all new windows.

There has been a veteran standing on the island at the intersection of 75th & Dodge with a home made card board sign for days now. If he could fight for our freedom I'm sure he could handle something easy like putting up gutters. Sorry. :hammer:

Found this in the barter section on Craigslist. He seems legit. May trade gutters for an old camera.

While our minds are in the gutter, this record rainy week was heck with all of the leaves in them already. They were constantly overflowing. Anyone try using those gutter guards? What type?

My house came with some sort of plastic gutter guard system, but it was more like a screen with large holes. I would NOT recommend it, its terrible.

I was watching Hometime on PBS Saturday a.m. and they installed some solid soft foam fillers that filled the top of whole gutter and let the water through but don't allow anything else to get into the gutter. It seems like they would eventually get covered by wet leaves or caked with dirt. Not sure how they would work with snow and ice either. But that show is based in Minneapolis, so they must have taken that into consideration.

We're investing in those LeafGuard brand gutters; they are the most expensive, but they offer a lifetime guarantee that they will not clog up.

Some of the other companies don't do that, and have requirements that you hose off the gutters periodically...and on a two story house, that's not what we're looking for. They are supposed to be installed in a couple of weeks, but I doubt we'll really know how well they work for two or three years.

My brother-in-law in Illinois has a house with the mesh screen gutter guards. They're relatively old, but in my mind, not worth the cost or effort. They're clogged up with fine bits of organic matter, and just cause the leaves and maple seeds to pile up on top. (I'll also never plant a silver maple tree near a house). Then, in areas where there's a small gap or break in the mesh, leaves and junk gets in and clogs up elsewhere, and you can't easily remove the mesh to clean it out. It's kind of the worst of both worlds.

I have 5" gutters and 3"x4" downspouts on our house, and they do a pretty good job of just letting leaves and junk flush out the downspouts. If you have the 2"x3" downspouts, they're going to clog a lot easier, and if a cheapo installer used the 2" round outlets in the gutters (I've seen this often on entry-level houses, even with rectangular downspouts), then they're pretty much guaranteed to clog.
