Aluminum gutters are the most ubiquitous type of gutters in the U.S. and in many other countries. You can find them along the roofline of any type of house and some commercial buildings. There are several good reasons aluminum is a preferred gutter material. Here are some of them:
Good aluminum is rust-resistant, unlike steel. It can withstand harsh weather conditions like heavy rains and snow better than steel or vinyl. Aluminum is not prone to cracking. The best aluminum gutters have a life span of up to 30 years with only a little maintenance. If you want a gutter material that will give you great performance over a long period of time, aluminum is worth every penny of its reasonable price tag.
Available in Whatever Color You Want
You can find aluminum gutters that are pre-painted in the colors that you need to match the aesthetics of your home. If you can’t find the color you want, get aluminum gutters that are primed for painting. With the wide range of colors available today, however, you are less likely to go for unpainted gutters.
Aluminum gutters installed by a professional gutter and roofing contractor require very little maintenance. No need to worry about priming, painting and protecting your gutters. Just hire a gutter cleaner or do it yourself once in a while.
Aluminum gutters are light and easy to install. If you’re pretty good at DIY work, you can install them yourself, though having them professionally installed is still the safest option. You won’t have to pay too much on labor when you choose these gutters.
