When you’re looking to have your gutters replaced, it’s also a chance to try a different material for your replacement. As a locally trusted metal roofing contractor, we recommend that you consider installing aluminum gutters on your home’s roof. These types of gutters are long-lasting and effective in protecting any home. Here are some of the essential benefits you need to know.
Wide Range of Styles and Colors
Aluminum gutters are available in many different colors and styles. Aluminum is relatively easy to shape, so it can fit into many different architectures, regardless of whether the home is traditional or modern in design. Compared to other gutters with limited color options, aluminum gutters usually come pre-colored. They’re also not susceptible to color bleaching, so its colors won’t easily fade under sunlight throughout its life cycle.
Durability with Little Maintenance Needed
Aluminum is popular not just because of its wide range of aesthetic options. Compared to other gutter materials, aluminum can actually hold its own, even during extreme weather conditions. This means it can withstand heavy rains or snow better than steel. It’s also virtually rust-proof, so there’s not much residential roofing maintenance needed, although you still need to clean any unwanted debris off the gutters from time to time to prevent the water from pooling on your roof.
Compared to timber, PVC and steel options, aluminum gutter systems are much more eco-friendly. In fact, they’re often made from recycled materials, and their manufacturing process has no harmful effects on the environment. Aluminum also doesn’t react to natural rainfall, so its PH stays the same even as it does its job of directing the rainwater down the drain. When it’s time for a replacement the old aluminum gutters can even be recycled into other aluminum products.
