Gutters systems are made from a wide range of materials, including galvanized steel and copper. Aluminum tends to be one of the most frequently overlooked gutter materials, yet is among the most ideal because of its durability and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Aluminum is known for its resistance to rust, which is why it is one of the most preferred building materials. When shaping gutters, the pros use a special aluminum alloy instead of the pure metal, which is too soft for such applications. With the addition of the alloy, the gutters can retain their corrosion resistance while adding further strength and rigidity.
Some gutters are susceptible to wind and hail damage. That’s not the case with aluminum gutters, although some homeowners are hesitant to choose them because of their perceived softness. As already mentioned, the type of aluminum used to shape gutters offers exceptional strength. This allows gutter systems to withstand heavy rainfall without breaking off the roof’s fascia. Also, they don’t crack or shatter as easily as the other gutter materials when exposed to hailstorms.
Aluminum gutters can be installed on various properties with different styles and designs. They have an extremely neutral appearance. So, even if you live in an old country home or a contemporary-styled home, they won’t look out of place.
The strength and malleability of aluminum gutters allow for quick installation. This is especially true for seamless gutters, which are often sized and shaped on-site, and installed within a day. They also come ready-made in many different colors, which means painting is not required.
