Installation of a variety of gutter systems
Steel and aluminum gutter systems are the most popular because of their affordability, availability and performance.
Factory pre-painted (baked on) steel gutters have a slightly crisper and more substantial look versus aluminum systems and they will not ding as easily if you ever anticipate anything hitting your gutters by way of accident. Overall the steel gutter systems can be considered more environmentally friendly over their aluminum counterparts because of the high embodied energy required to make the aluminum out of raw materials. Remember, a maintenance plan/system is essential in keeping the steel gutters working to their potential in longevity.
In the case of aluminum gutters, with a factory pre-painted finish in many color options, they would be the more non-corrosive system between the two affordable choices of steel and aluminum. However, aluminum gutters should be avoided on buildings that can be affected by salt spray from a near by body of water. Aluminum gutters come in a variety of styles/sizes and are complemented with large downspouts with curved elbows that do not clog easily.
These gutter systems should last for many decades if they are maintained well. We can give you more ideas on optimum, affordable and hassle-free maintenance on all of our installed gutters.
