I’ve experienced building products from both sides of the fence – I spent a few years swinging a hammer and now twice as many years in building material sales – so I can appreciate a product that delivers what it promises. In 2016 Shepley started stocking Fibergutter®, a fiberglass gutter system manufactured in Halifax Massachusetts. I’ve seen this product in the field and believe in its superb performance and great appearance.
Fir gutters are available in limited lengths, require a fair amount of up keep and over time will rot from exposure to the elements and insects. Fibergutter has the same historic profile and outside dimension of a traditional wood gutter, but greater longevity backed by a 50-year warranty. Fiberglass gutter is some of the strongest gutter on the market and it’s virtually maintenance free. You can leave it natural (UV protected white) or paint it any color, like you would with wood or PVC. And paint on fiberglass can last up to 5 times longer than on a wood product.
Fibergutter is a pultruded product manufactured with a resin based fiberglass. This process creates a product that is smooth and consistent in appearance and very stable (no expansion and contraction). Fibergutter is much more impact resistant than aluminum, copper or wood and resistant to moisture damage and rot. And it’s easy to install. Simply fasten it, with stainless steel screws, right to the facia, no brackets needed! GutterGlue creates a solid bond for seams, miters, outlets and endcaps. And cuts are easy with a standard 10” or 12” miter saw with a carbide or diamond blade.
Shepley stocks Fibergutter in 27’ 6” and 40’ lengths along with all the accessories you need for your project. And Fibergutter is available in radius and custom profiles too. Because Fibergutter is a local company, there is great support in the field. Need some assistance with your first installation? No problem! We’ll have someone there quickly to show you how easy this product is to work with.
