Gutters

Part utility and part curb appeal; copper gutters offer a great way to enhance the look of your home or business while protecting it from water damage. Aside from their durability, copper gutters are also prized for the beautiful green patina color they develop with age.

However, copper gutters can discolor and burn if they're installed by inexperienced contractors and you could end up paying a lot more than the service is worth.

Types of Gutters

Gutters come in a range of styles, materials, sizes, and colors.  With the wide range of options available, it can be easy to become overwhelmed or intimidated.  Below, we have the main features worth considering when deciding on your home's gutters.   

Gutter materials can be important depending on what look you're going for and if you're planning on reusing your rainwater in a rainwater harvesting system.

Steel 

Hot-dipped galvanized steel gutters are a great middle-ground when you're looking for toughness and rust resistance.  Steel gutters are nearly indestructible by standard wear and tear, and the zinc galvanization gives it a protective layer that will fight off rust for years!  I addition ot that, steel gutters can be painted to match the color-scheme of your home.

Copper 

Copper gutters are naturally beautiful, and they are the popular material for built-in gutters.  Over time, they will develop a beautiful patina, giving you a slowly changing pattern on your gutters.  The only reason to avoid copper would be if you are looking to recycle your rainwater.  Copper itself is not dangerous, but the patina that develops is created by trace amounts of chlorine and sulphur which it best avoided when the water will be reused.

Zinc

Zinc and Rheinzink are natural metals, which, in roofing terms, means they can be left exposed without any downsides.  Zinc and Rheinzink gutters are an attractive silver/white color that is becoming more and more popular on modern homes.  Unlike copper, these materials can be used in conjunction with rainwater harvesting systems.  

Aluminum

Aluminum gutters are the traditional gutter; they're light-weight and easy on you wallet.  Aluminum gutters will all be painted, so you can match the colors to your house.  

 

Gutters wrap all over your home making them visible from whichever direction you see your home from.  Because gutters will ALWAYS be seen, it's not something to overlook.  Gutters come in four standard styles: Square, K-style, European, and Box (built-in).

Square

Square gutters are uncommon, but where you can fit them into the style of the home they can fit very well.  In addition to the occasional residental use, they are found on the majority of industrial or commercial buildings.

K-Style

This is perhaps the most common gutter style. It is found on nearly all homes that were built as a part of a neighborhood. They have a complex enough profile to not come across as boring, but not so much that that drag your attention away.

Round or European

These gutters are especially popular with slate and tile roofs, but can also work with other styles.  You can get them in Copper, Zinc, and Steel; in addition to that, they can be painted to suit your particular taste.

Radiused Gutters

These are not a particular style, but are sections of gutter that are constantly curved to fit the edge of a tower or other curved roof.  Typically, a roofer will solve this problem by making many small sections of gutter which is not only time consuming and expensive, but more likely to leak.  We own a machine to custom make these radiused panels.
