Copper gutters and zinc gutters are often out of the price range for most homeowners. Copper gutters can cost up to three or four times more than aluminum or steel gutter systems. Within the gutter trade, copper gutters and zinc gutters are referred to as "exotic" metals.
Yet . . . Copper is a gorgeous metal that patinas to a rich green or brown (depending on whether you live in a coastal or inland location) and will give your new custom home undisputed bragging rightsthough at a five-figure cost. Copper prices have been quite high in recent years. And because the metal is so expensive, you'll need a skilled specialty gutters installer who makes no mistakes and wastes no copper.
Copper gutters are often used on older homes with finer architectural details. Classic home restoration often calls for copper gutters to remain true to the original design and construction of the home.
Aluminum gutters are a great product. They don't rust, are available in popular colors, can be painted to match other colors and can be shaped quite easily. These rain handling devices have been around for close to 30 years. Prior to the early 60's gutters were made from galvanized steel. Steel gutters were strong and durable. However, installing them took talent. Joints required solder. Painting them was a challenge. If you didn't remove the mill oil finish, the paint would rapidly peel. Aluminum gutters offered a breakthrough in technology.
Seamless - A Myth
Have you been approached by a salesperson telling you the benefits of seamless gutters? They tell you about how seams leak. They say how your leak problems are gone forever. Hogwash! Seamless gutters have all kinds of 'seams' - places where leaks can develop. There is a seam at each end of the gutter. There is a seam at each outlet tube. There is a seam every time the gutter turns a corner. All of these places can leak. So, don't buy a 'seamless' gutter just because it supposedly doesn't leak.
OK, so now you don't want seamless gutters. What do you do? Well, how about aluminum gutters that are just like seamless gutters but offer more advantages? Forget about avoiding seams. It is impossible to do, no matter what material you choose to use: steel, copper, tin, or aluminum.
Did you know you can get a traditional aluminum gutter system which looks like a seamless gutter, is stronger than most seamless gutters, and comes in lengths up to 37 feet long? Did you know this same system has an invisible hanger system so you don't see those ugly spike heads?
