Good Reasons to Choose an Aluminum Gutter System

Good Reasons to Choose an Aluminum Gutter System

November 24, 2017

In the past, galvanized steel was the most common material used for gutters. That changed, however, when aluminum gutters came onto the scene. Today, many contractors, including Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, do not recommend or install any other gutter material but aluminum.

Good Reasons to Choose an Aluminum Gutter System

Here’s why we believe aluminum is superior to all other gutter materials:

Readily Available

It costs less to produce aluminum than galvanized steel, so it is more readily available. This means we can order and install your gutters more efficiently and at a lower cost to you.

Comes in Different Colors

Galvanized steel gutters require painting. When you use aluminum, however, you don’t have to worry about painting, as aluminum gutters come in different colors as well as styles. No matter what style of home you have, there are aluminum systems that match.

Easier to Install and Buy

Aluminum is cheaper to purchase and also easier to install. This saves the homeowner money on both materials and labor.

Works With a Cap System

Some contractors, including  Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY, offer systems with a gutter cap, which is most effective when installed on an aluminum gutter.

Requires Very Little Maintenance

An aluminum gutter system needs less maintenance than a galvanized steel gutter system. Hiring a professional to maintain your gutters will cost you more if you have a steel system.

Resistant to Rust and Heat

You don’t have to worry about rusty gutters if your system is made of aluminum. With a steel gutter, you have to be constantly vigilant about rust, especially on areas where there is no paint, or if the paint has cracked and peeled. Aluminum also has better heat-resistant properties than steel, so it does not expand or contract when the temperature changes.

Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY can show you how an aluminum gutter system, particularly one with a gutter filter and a cap, can do wonders for your home. Call us today at (855) 483-3768 or fill out our contact form for a free in-home consultation.
