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, facia, siding and foundation repairs over the years.
Though you may not think it, 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 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.
