Gutter Construction Materials
Home gutters are most commonly made from vinyl, steel, aluminum or copper. Vinyl is light and strong, however it can become weak in cold times of the year making it more prone to damage from ice or hail. Vinyl gutter systems may last as long as 10 years or longer depending upon the thickness and quality of the product. Steel is durable and can support a high weight, but it rusts where the finish is deteriorated or damaged. Depending on the type of coating used on the metal, steel gutters could last as long as 50 years. That kind of investment can go a long way in improving the look of your home, as well as increase its value.
Aluminum does not rust, however it damages quickly compared to other kinds of gutter product. Aluminum gutters may last 20 to 25 years typically. Copper gutters are gorgeous and are used in creative home designed besides their actual purpose, however costly. With time, the copper develops a rich luster. Regrettably, copper rain gutters can make homes a target for burglars due to the fact that they are valuable and attractive.
