If you’re a homeowner, you know that you have to have house gutters. They protect your home from potential damage. If water isn’t directed down and away from your house’s structure, you could face flooding and other issues. But do you know what style of gutter is the most effective and efficient? Let’s take a look at some of your best options.
Vinyl gutters are very popular for many reasons. They are flexible, sturdy, easy to install, and lightweight. They’re also affordable and come in a variety of colors, so they fit most budgets and home styles. They’re ideal for our warmer climate because it doesn’t get cold enough to risk the vinyl cracking.
Aluminum gutters are another great option. Like vinyl, aluminum is lightweight and won’t rust. You can paint them to match your house or trim, and they are relatively easy to install. The only drawback is that aluminum dents and bends easily.
One of the biggest benefits of cast iron is its eco-impact. It takes less energy to produce them, they are recyclable, and generally require very little repair or maintenance. Cast iron is also a very quiet option due to the acoustic properties and is a great choice for a home.
Copper has a higher price tag than other gutter options, but it’s a great choice for homeowners who want to maintain an elegant look. It’s another eco-friendly choice, as well as being low-maintenance and highly durable.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my “sad” roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
