/>Before the invention of the gutter machine around 1960 or so, it took quite a long time to hang gutters on a building. Just by looking at a building and its gutters, it might seem like a rather simple job. To be fair, the act of actually hanging the gutter, whereby you nail it onto the side of the structure, isn’t really that difficult. The hard part is measuring the length of the side of the building and then creating a gutter of that exact length. Before the gutter machine, home builders and construction workers had to solder different pieces of gutter together to get it to run the entire length of the building. They had to measure the building, cut various pieces of gutters into smaller pieces, and then solder them all together to create one continuous piece of gutter. Of course, often mistakes were made, and the soldering wasn’t done correctly. That would lead to leaks, which meant the entire gutter had to come down and a new one had to be put up. It was a massive headache.
Fortunately, today there are gutter machines. You might have never heard of such a machine, but what it does is rather simple. All a person has to do is load a piece of metal coil into one end of the machine, typically aluminum, and then the machine bends that piece of metal while running it through itself. Out the other end comes a well-formed gutter that can then be hung on the side of a building. The great thing about these machines is that they make it possible for home builders and construction workers to create any length of gutter that they need. Rather than having to solder different pieces together, the machine will create a gutter of exactly any length you need. All you have to do is measure the side of a building, put a coil of metal into the machine that’s of that length, and then turn the machine on.
One of the great things about these machines is that they make it possible for people to create gutters of different widths. The coils of metal come in different widths, from 6 inches to a foot or longer. The wider the coil is, the wider, taller, and deeper the gutter is going to be. If you want a bigger gutter for a building with a larger roof, in other words a gutter that can carry more water, then you just put a bigger coil into the machine. It’s really rather slick. On top of that, these machines can even create gutters with gutter art on them. They’re truly incredible inventions that make the job of hanging gutters a great deal easier.
There are a few companies out there that produce gutter machines, but no one does a better job than New Tech Machinery. They’ve been manufacturing machines for well over two decades, and they know a thing or two about creating a machine that’s going to work properly for years to come.
