(YouPostTheNews) – 7 years ago business owner Marcus H. Norris never would have dreamed his then 14 yr old son Brandon, would have one day been interested in the seamless gutter business he once owned from 2004 to 2010.

Marcus sold the thriving company, Mister Gutters of Louisiana, to an employee to pursue other business ventures. When Brandon turned 21 he asked his dad why he sold the business.

"I don't know. I shouldn't have. I should have just leased the company," Marcus answered. Marcus always enjoyed being a business owner. He enjoyed the marketing and customer interaction.

"I really enjoyed receiving a phone call for an estimate and meeting new customers. The whole process of marketing, receiving phone calls, completing the estimates, buying materials, setting up job start times and completing the job for another customer made me happy," Marcus said.

So when Brandon asked Marcus he was intrigued on why he would ask. Brandon explained he to would be interested in doing gutter jobs.

Marcus decided to get back in the business. He found a 6" seamless gutter machine, trailer, ladders, and saw for sale right down the road from his Kinder, Louisiana home.

Now to find the right name. Marcus contemplated nameing the business Louisiana State Gutters and theme it after Lousiana State University. However he ultimately decided on the name SWLA Gutters.

"The name just seamed to fit better." Marcus told us. SWLA Gutters was born. A family ran business with three generations of Norris' working the jobs. Donald Norris, Marcus' dad and Brandon's paw-paw is also involved in the business.

Their main coverage area is in the name, Southwest Louisiana. However if the price is right they will travel where ever to do a Seamless Gutter job.

Marcus stresses the benefits of installing seamless gutters on your home. "If you don't want to have to spend over $10,000 on foundation repair in the future I would highly suggest you put Gutters on your home. I am going through this right now. I moved into an older home in 2009, which did not have gutters and am now having to spend a small fortune for foundation repair," says Marcus.

The first gutter job the new company did was on Marcus' home. "Not only do gutters protect your foundation they also improve the look of the home and raise the property value."

"We are back in business," Marcus proudly announced. Give them a call at 3373709973 and visit their website at for a Free Estimate.
