Gutter System 101:
The purpose of a gutter system is to direct rain away from your building’s siding, windows, roof, and foundation. If any component of a gutter system is damaged or corroding your building is at risk of rainwater intrusion. Below we provide a list of the different components that make up your gutter system:
Gutter sections are the horizontal open parts that catch rainwater from the roof. They are usually 6 inches wide and made of either vinyl, steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, or wood. If your home or building has seamless gutters they are custom measured to fit the desired location.
Downspouts also called “leader pipes” are the vertical closed pipes that direct water from the roof to the ground level but away from your home’s foundation. Downspouts are rectangular or round shaped.
Elbows are bent shaped pipes usually at the end of a downspout with the purpose of directing water away from the home.
End caps lie at the end of a gutter section. They are most often flat pieces of metal sealed with a silicone sealant to prevent water from prematurely exiting.
Gutter screens also called “gutter guards” reduce the need for frequent gutter cleaning as they filter some debris.
Risk of Corrosion:
Aluminum is a strong metal, hence a very common material used to make components for your gutter system. Aluminum is prone to corrosion in environments with polluted and salty ocean air. Unfortunately, these environmental conditions are common in Los Angeles.
As a favorite specialty paint contractor, we use high-performance epoxy paint to ensure aluminum gutters have long-lasting durability and substrate protection.
The Biggest Challenge of Repainting Gutters and Downspouts:
The biggest challenge of painting new gutters or repainting an old gutter system is accessing them safely. Working on ladders and painting select areas while not getting paint all over the place is a tedious and dangerous task. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 500,000 people are treated for ladder-related injuries each year .
Since 2011, the mission of RayAccess is to be Los Angeles’s go-to high-access maintenance contractor. We have safety protocols in place for our gutter painting and downspout painting services. RayAccess technicians are certified with international fall protection associations (SPRAT & IRATA). RayAccess has expertise across the full spectrum of access methods including industrial rope access, suspended scaffolding, swing stages, man lifts, and ladders.
The Professional Way to Paint Gutters:
If you are looking for long-lasting results and protection against corrosion, just throwing a new coat of paint on gutters will not cut the mustard. Hire RayAccess High Painting for proven protocols to improve the durability & appeal of your gutters and downspouts. Our 3 step process includes:
- Surface Preparation
RayAccess performs the necessary step of surface prep to ensure the adhesion of new painting. Surface preparation consists of masking off areas not getting painted. Next, we remove loose paint and sand off any corrosion. This is followed by a thorough cleaning and degreasing of the surface to be painted. Finally, we apply at least one primer and paint coat.
Gutter Painting Cost?
The 3 factors that make up a RayAccess bid for any gutter painting project include the cost of materials, labor, and time (which depend on access difficulty & surface preparation requirements). Whether our team visits the property or we provide a quote online, contact RayAccess to get an estimate for your gutter painting project.
Gutter cleaning is critical to effectively direct rainwater into drain or downspout. You can count on RayAccess to safely access and unclog rain gutters.
Benefits of Hiring RayAccess :
RayAccess uses the most advanced painting systems available in accordance with manufacturer-recommended standards. As a result, we furnish a 12-36 month labor warranty for our gutter painting work, and the paint manufacturer’s product warranty ranges from 5-10 years.
Less Cost, Less Disruption:
Oftentimes it is more cost-effective to employ rope access methods compared to building scaffolding or renting boom lifts. In addition, rope access is less intrusive as there is less need to block foot traffic below.

We hire experienced operations managers that have thousands of successful painting jobs under their belt. Our project managers provide a high level of communication with all stakeholders, owners, and property managers. Don’t take our word for it see what people are saying about RayAccess.

I'm really happy with work RayAccess did for us on painting the exterior of Loews atrium. At first, I though it would be a nightmare project because of old paint condition and difficult access to some areas. But it turned out to be a very professional and smooth job! Thank you.
