There are several materials that can be used for the gutters of your home, and each will have their respective benefits. To help you get a better idea of what gutter in Albany NY is most effective, we at Huff ‘N Puff have made this list of some of the best materials that can be used:

Gutter Materials

1. Steel. Steel is a strong material. However, galvanized steel can start rusting after 5 to 10 years. It can be heavy and is not recommend for DIY projects. It can get pricey.

2. Copper. While it is beautiful and won’t rust like steel, copper can discolor over time. Joints may need to be welded together by professionals. It can also be pricey.

3. Vinyl. This material is lightweight and inexpensive. However, it may not be available in many colors. It is also susceptible to damage from UV rays and might crack in the cold.

4. Aluminum. Because it won’t rust, this is the most widely used material today. It is lightweight and can even be painted.
