Why Are Aluminum Gutters So Popular?

January 5th, 2018 | No Comments »

Why Are Aluminum Gutters So Popular? Aluminum gutters aren’t the only options available to homeowners, but they are by far the most popular ones. Gutters are also available in other materials like vinyl, stainless steel and even copper, but none of these alternatives are as ubiquitous as aluminum gutters. So why are aluminum gutters the preferred choice of so many homeowners?

Aluminum offers a unique balance of affordability, durability and versatility.

Aluminum gutters are far more durable–but only slightly more expensive—than vinyl options. In areas that are prone to heavy snowfalls and other extreme weather events, aluminum is a particularly good option when compared to vinyl. It’s also available in multiple gauges of varying thickness for additional strength.

Aluminum is somewhat less durable than stainless steel and copper, but it is also far less expensive than these heavy-duty options. Stainless steel gutters typically start at around $20 per linear foot, whereas aluminum gutters cost only about $4 to $9 per linear foot.

In addition to being durable and affordable, aluminum gutters are also available in many different colors and configurations. This allows them to be easily customized to suit the aesthetic of a home. Whereas vinyl gutters are only available in fixed lengths, seamless aluminum gutters can be cut to the exact size needed for each application. This results in a finished product that is not only more structurally sound, but also better looking.
