Like most homeowners, your goal is to make your home as beautiful as possible, from choosing the best furniture, beautiful décor pieces, improving your landscape, etc.
However, the probability of you thinking of the necessity of your rain gutter system is almost close to zero.
The reality is, though gutters are a small part of your home, without them, rainwater can cause so many problems such as:
- Roof and siding damage
- Mold problems
- Foundational damage
- Flooding in basements etc.
So, if you don’t have a gutter system, this would be the best time to call in your trusted gutter services for a gutter installation.
And if your gutters aren’t performing as they should, a gutter replacement is vital.
So how do you choose a gutter system?
To make the best decision for your new gutter system, you’ll need to focus on the shape, material, cost, and probably the long-term maintenance needs.
Choose seamless gutters
Professionals recommend choosing seamless gutters. As the name suggests, they have almost no seams. These gutters are less susceptible to leaks or overflow in a heavy rain season.
They also come in different materials: copper, galvanized steel, aluminum, and vinyl.
Copper is the most durable but way more expensive. Vinyl is a cheaper option but not as durable.
On the other hand, aluminum is a go-to option for many since it’s resistant to rust. It is also available in different colors. Galvanized steel is exceptionally resistant.
For minimal maintenance, you can consider installing gutter leaf protection.
Shape of gutters
There are three basic shapes;
- Half rounded gutters
- K-style gutters
- Box gutters
As the names suggest, these gutters take the form of shapes mentioned above.
