Rain gutters are an important and essential part of protecting your home. During storms and downpours, gutters work to draw the water away from your home and help it drain properly. A properly installed and maintained rain gutter can save countless hundreds and even thousands of dollars in roofing, soffit & fascia, siding, and foundation repairs over the years.
Though you may not think so, there is a wide variety of selections available when it comes to rain gutters. Seamless, bonderized, copper, aluminum, steel,…the choices can be overwhelming.
When considering which rain gutters to purchase, keep maintenance, style, and materials in mind. You’ll want the style and color that best fits your home, but also consider maintenance and the best materials for the job.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Vinyl gutters are less expensive in the beginning, but they warp, fade, and, in general, don’t stand up to the elements as well as steel, aluminum, or copper.
- Seamless copper and aluminum gutters have less leakage, warping, and a larger capacity for water removal.
- Bonderized steel, though it is stronger and holds up to ladders and other equipment better than some other gutters, isn’t available in a seamless variety and is still susceptible to rust.
We can help you choose which style, color, and variety of gutters that will not only add to the beauty of your home, but will protect it for the long term as well. Give us a call today!
