Top Materials for GuttersJuly 26, 2017
As a homeowner, upgrading your gutters and installing a protective gutter filter may not be the most glamorous home improvement project you’ll ever embark upon, but it is actually one of the most important. Your gutters are responsible for directing precipitation away from your home, and a high-quality, functioning gutter can make the difference between a well-protected home and one that is vulnerable to costly water damage.
Gutters can be made from different materials with varying strengths and weaknesses. Here are two common gutter materials:
Aluminum is a favorite choice for budget-conscious homeowners. Lightweight, rust-proof and easy to clean and maintain, repair, or replace, aluminum gutters are also weather-resistant, meaning they are durable and reliable in whatever climate. In addition, aluminum gutters hold paint better than other materials, which boosts the aesthetic appeal of your home. On the downside, aluminum gutters are prone to misshaping and dents, unlike other “stronger” materials like steel.
If you’re in the market for high-quality aluminum gutters, look no further than Huff ‘N Puff. We offer first-rate products that suit your needs and budget. We also have additional products that can bolster the protection of your aluminum gutters, such as SnapLock™, which eliminates the possibility of leaking and rotting wood from the gutter attachment.
Galvanized steel is an extremely popular gutter material. Both durable and budget-friendly, galvanized steel can endure damage that falling ladders and branches may cause. Stainless steel is also a good option because it is virtually indestructible and resistant to rust.
Huff ‘N Puff also offers other products that improve your system, such as a gutter cap. This product features a unique nose forward design that guides water toward the gutter effectively, filtering debris away from your system and thus preventing clogs.
