Aluminum, Copper, Vinyl, Steel – What do they mean?

Which one do I choose? Believe it or not, when it comes to gutters, you have many choices to make. Color and style are the easy part, but choosing the material can be daunting. Below is the low-down on the materials, description and a brief explanation of them.

Seamless Aluminum Gutters

This is the most common product used today to capture water from a roof. It is strong and durable and most importantly it will never rust. Common steel gutters in use today will rust eventually even being galvanized. When buying any metal gutter, be sure to choose the thickest. Our suggestion is .032 gauge which is the most durable.

Vinyl and Plastic

These materials are commonly used and often sold in do-it-yourself hardware stores. This type of gutter is easy to install yourself! Put the downside of these materials is that they can become brittle with age or in extreme cold and often leak if not installed properly.
