Like any material for roofing or siding, your gutter system comes with different options. They vary in shape, size, price and composition. And depending on what type you use, you can improve the curb appeal of your home. You can also adjust how long its service life lasts.
Find out more about the different gutter types from Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal, your local roofing contractors.
One of the most popular options for gutters, vinyl is known for being lightweight and affordable. This makes it easier to bring and install to your home. However, while it can handle the heat, it does not hold up well against the cold weather. It also fades easily under the sun’s UV rays.
2. Stainless Steel
Known for its incredible durability, stainless steel gutters are one of the toughest on the market. While it can carry a heavy load, it needs to be checked after a few years for rust. In addition, it costs more per linear foot compared to other gutter types, though its capacity to hold more weight than other gutter types makes up for this.
One of the more high-end options on the market, copper gutters stand out for a reason: they look good. You won’t need to paint over it to make it fit your home and it doesn’t rust. However, it requires specialized installation to work perfectly. If you want an efficient gutter replacement that vastly raises curb appeal, this is a must-have.
Beloved by most homeowners, aluminum is known for being lightweight and resistant to corrosion. While it doesn’t handle impact (or ladders) very well, it is remarkable for being weather-resistant. It also holds paint well and can last for several years before any of the paint starts to fade.
