The gutters play an important role in your home’s ability to avoid moisture damage. Without them, water runoff from the roofing system will fall straight down the soil around the home, causing problems such as erosion and damage to the siding. Although many people choose to install steel gutters, our experts recommend getting aluminum gutters instead because of their key advantages.
Although steel is a popular gutter option, there’s a good chance a local contractor won’t have all the necessary components until an order is made. Unfortunately, you might not have enough time to wait for materials to start your gutter installation project. This isn’t a problem with aluminum siding because its popularity means contractors will always want to have aluminum components in stock.
Unlike some kinds of steel used for gutter installation, aluminum gutters do not suffer from moisture-related damage such as rust or wood rot. Aluminum also expands less when exposed to heat compared to steel panels so there’s a lower risk of aluminum gutters warping or bending because of temperature changes. Aluminum gutters can also be painted just as easily as steel gutters, so there’s no need to worry about getting stuck with a gutter color that doesn’t match your home’s roofing system.
Repairing aluminum gutters is easier for our specialists because most homeowners already have them installed. This means we have already encountered (and dealt with) every kind of problem your typical aluminum gutter system could have. While we are also capable of fixing steel gutters, we still recommend getting aluminum gutters because aluminum components necessary for repair are more affordable.
Ensuring Quality Through Professional Installation
It’s important that aluminum gutters are installed to the manufacturer’s specifications to ensure good performance. This means you should always leave gutter installation to certified professionals like us. Professional installation also helps protect you from having to spend extra due to corrective repairs in case a problem was caused by poor product quality or incorrect installation.
