What Are the Benefits of Aluminum Gutters?
Aluminum gutters are used for many homes and offer several advantages:
- They are less likely to leak.
- They can better protect your home.
- They are strong and durable.
- They require less maintenance.
- They are available in a variety of colors to complement any home exterior.
- They can be very affordable.
Why Choose Aluminum Gutters?
Gutters serve an important function. There was a time when wood was used for gutters with poor results: Wood ages, weathers and rots quickly.
Today’s New York rain gutters can be aluminum, copper, steel, vinyl or zinc.
- Copper gutters are beautiful but may not be as cost-effective as aluminum.
- Steel gutters are sturdy but prone to rust.
- Vinyl gutters cost less but tend to crack in hard freezes.
- Zinc gutters are durable but expensive; they don’t do well in salt-water areas and may suffer damage from cedar shingles’ acidic runoff.
- Aluminum gutters are the most popular choice in the U.S.
Seamless fascia gutters are high-end home or commercial building gutters and can only be made of aluminum.
Standard gutters are:
- Half-round: These gutters are shaped like half of a tube, and they’re very effective water-removal systems. They need brackets to hold them in place.
- K-style: With a flat bottom and angled sides, K-style gutters can hold more water than half-round gutters. K-styles can have a crown-molding appearance many people appreciate. They’re a bit more difficult to clean than fascia or half-round gutters.
Benefits of Town Building Systems Aluminum Gutters
Aluminum gutters are the top choice for most property owners because you can choose from three thicknesses and performance levels. The thinnest is least expensive but more likely to dent. Thicker aluminum can best withstand heavy snowfalls.
Gutters today can prevent expensive problems tomorrow. Their purpose is to divert rainwater and melted snow to a lower ground area that won’t damage your home or foundation.
Homes with ineffective gutter systems (or no gutters at all) get pooled rainwater near the foundation, which can cause damages and basement flooding.
Some homes’ sides and roofs are lined with plywood and/or tar paper, two materials that are not waterproof. Rainwater seeping into your home can cause expensive damage before you know it.
Mold growth near your ceiling or on walls could be your first sign you have water leaks from your roof.
New gardeners can find the fruits of their labor drenched in rainwater runoff from the roof. Gutters deflect the water to a better location away from your home.
- Are lightweight and can be installed quickly/easily
- Can last as long as 25 years (or longer)
- Come in many colors and can be painted
