6 Things to Know About Aluminum Gutters

When the time comes for you to need to place the gutters on your home, you may be looking at a lot of different material options. While steel, wood or vinyl stand out as popular choices, there is no doubt that aluminum gutters are the best option for your home. Here are some things you may not know about aluminum gutters:

Holding more water: One of the things that set aluminum gutters apart from their counterparts is the fact that they are able to hold a lot more water than other types of gutter material. This makes them perfect for places with a lot of heavy rain and downpours,

Lightweight: These lightweight gutters are perfect for surviving a long time. These are easy to install and do not succumb to sagging, warping and breaking easily.

A long life: Because aluminum gutters are so durable, they have a much longer lifespan than their counterparts. Aluminum gutters can last up to 20 years.

Seamless options: When homeowners go for the seamless aluminum gutter options, they are pretty much guaranteed to have gutters that do not leak. This is because these gutters are perfect for making sure water is safely removed from the side of your home, avoiding damage and issues that leaks cause such as foundation issues, rot, mould, mildew and flooding.

No rust, no fuss: While steel gutters are looked at as being more durable than aluminum ones, the extra heft that steel has only increases once leaves and debris start to pile up in the system. This can lead to sagging which makes you more vulnerable to rusting and corroding.

Customization: One of the main benefits of aluminum gutters is that, unlike other materials, they are fully customizable to fit with your home’s design and style. Whether it is custom gauges, thickness, or colour, aluminum is able to get the job done.
