Aluminum Gutter Replacement
Aluminum gutters are perhaps the most popular choice for many homeowners due to their balance of durability and cost. One of the biggest advantages of aluminum gutters is that they won’t rust or corrode over time. They’re also very lightweight, making them easy to install and clean. On the downside, aluminum gutters can be easily dented or damaged and corrode over time. Overall, aluminum gutters are a good option for those who want a reasonably durable and low-maintenance solution while keeping an eye on their budget. Still, they’re far from perfect for everyone.
If you’re looking for something a bit more durable than aluminum, there are other options available. Art Slate’s roofing contractors can help you replace your old aluminum gutters with new ones made to last. We use high-quality gutter materials, and our experienced craftsmen will ensure that your new gutters are correctly installed.
Steel Gutter Replacement
There are two main types of steel gutters; galvanized and stainless. Steel gutters are a popular choice for many homeowners because they are durable and require little maintenance. However, they can be susceptible to rusting, especially if they are not regularly cleaned. Galvanized steel has a zinc coating to prevent rusting, but this coating can wear off and leave the metal beneath vulnerable to rust.
Stainless steel is a highly durable material that can withstand heavy rain and snowfall without bowing or sagging. Both types of steel gutters are much less likely to corrode than aluminum gutters, and they can be easily painted to match the exterior of your home. However, steel gutters are more expensive than other types, and they can be difficult to install due to their weight. The tradeoff for the higher upfront cost, though, is less frequent maintenance. Overall, steel gutters are a solid choice for many homeowners, but it is essential to weigh the pros and cons before deciding.
Copper Gutter Replacement
These premium gutters are much more durable than aluminum and even steel, so you can expect your copper gutters to last for many years. Copper doesn’t rust; instead, it takes on a patina as it oxidizes. The color of this patina can range from green to brown to black – like an old penny. This gives your gutters (as well as the rest of your home) a truly unique appearance. It also naturally insulates the rest of the metal from corroding. If the original bright shine is more your style, though, you can seal your copper gutters so they can’t oxidize.
Copper gutters carry a higher price tag than aluminum and steel, but you’re not just paying for looks. They tend to last much longer than their aluminum counterparts; they can last over 100 years with proper maintenance! Copper is less prone to warping than aluminum and steel, so they’re less likely to crack or pull away from the roof. If you’re looking for a beautiful, high-quality gutter system solution built to last, you can’t go wrong with copper.
