Selecting The Proper Rain GuttersGuttering is probably not something you’ve thought about much. You don’t think about them because you see them so much. There are many types of gutters. When it comes to selecting the right gutters for your house, the material and design are important.

Maintenance is greatly affected by the type of gutters that you have. There are many different gutter systems that can be used on a house:

Half round gutters: This simple design does not detract from your home, and it works well to collect rainwater. It then routes the water away from your house. These gutters are open but leaves and sticks can easily get stuck in them. Installing leaf guards will solve this problem.
K-Style rain gutters: The K-style rain-gutters get their name because, when viewed from the side, they resemble the letter K. These types of gutters have a flat-backed design, so they can be mounted without brackets. These gutters also add a decorative touch to your home.
Fully customizable: Custom rain gutters are available. Aluminum is the most common material used for custom gutters because it’s easy to work with.

Materials Used To Construct Gutters

Rain gutters are usually made of lightweight metals such as zinc, aluminum, steel and copper. Some gutters can also be made of vinyl.

Aluminum: Aluminum is lightweight, non-rusting, and can be painted in any color. It lasts for about 25 years. Aluminum gutters can dent or bend due to storm damage, and other trauma.
Vinyl: Vinyl can be painted and is a great choice for homes that are near water bodies as it is not affected by the salt air. Vinyl isn’t very temperature-tolerant and can crack or become brittle.
Zinc: Zinc resists weather, corrosion and warping and can last for about 50 years. These gutters may be more expensive than other options.
Stainless steel: Stainless steel has a high strength, is resistant to weather, lasts for about 10 years and can rust. It’s also heavy.
Copper roof gutters: Copper roofing gutters are not rusty, do not require painting and last for 100 years.
