Common Types of Roof Gutters


Is your Roof Bad?

Gutters are a crucial part of the house, as they protect from rain accumulation and damage. There are many different types of gutters to consider if you are building or remodeling your home. Gutters are hung from the edge of the roof or attached to the fascia board, and they are typically made from vinyl, galvanized tin, aluminum, copper, or wood.

Before deciding on a general contractor, it’s worth considering some of the most common types of gutters available for your home.

Seamless Aluminum

Seamless aluminum gutters are usually the best type of gutter to go with, since they do not bend or crack easily and don’t need to be painted. This gutter type is fed from a spool into a special machine that extrudes the gutters right onto the house for a seamless fit.

Cheaper Gutter Options

  • If you’re a do-it-yourself type of person, then vinyl gutters are the option for you. They are affordable and easy to install, but they do tend to distort in extreme temperatures.
  • Another affordable option is galvanized tin gutters. These are easy to install, but they also need upkeep over the years, including regular painting to prevent rust from building up.

Decorative Gutter Options

If you have a larger budget, you may want to go with a more decorative gutter to add character and style to your home. Two options to consider for this are wood and copper gutters. Both are very strong and sturdy options, although wood gutters need regular cleaning and painting to stand the test of time.
