There are many different kinds of rain gutters that you can add to your home. Some are better for certain types of homes than others, so your question is: which rain gutters are best for my home? Maybe you didn’t know there were different kinds of gutters. That’s okay! We will discuss the different types and why they would be good or not the best fit for your home. 

Vinyl Gutters

Vinyl gutters have become a top-ranked choice for many homeowners for many reasons. One reason is that they are easy to install. They also don’t rust or corrode, and they’re very affordable. If you’re trying not to hire a professional to install your gutters, vinyl is a good choice because they are easy to install yourself. However, make sure you do it correctly because poor installation can cause issues like sagging. Also, if you live in colder climates, these might not be right for you because vinyl has a reputation for cracking in extreme cold. 

Aluminum Gutters

Aluminum gutters are similar to vinyl in that they’re cost-effective, don’t rust, are easy to work with, and are lightweight. If you live in a climate that experiences cold temperatures or all kinds of weather, aluminum is a good choice for your home because these gutters are weather-proof across the board. Aluminum also holds paint well if you’re looking to spice up the look of your home. Aluminum’s downfall is that it’s not as structurally strong as other materials making it easy to dent with hail or misshapen by putting a ladder in the wrong place. 

Steel Gutters

Steel gutters come in different types of steel, but galvanized is the most popular because it’s cost-effective and sturdier than aluminum competitors. However, the biggest downside to steel is its ability to rust. This means steel needs more maintenance if you want it to last longer, but it can last a long time if you perform the proper maintenance regularly. 

Sectional or Seamless

Besides the type of gutters, sectional or seamless gutters is another decision you should consider. Almost all gutters come in sections that are joined together to create the whole network, but aluminum is now available in seamless varieties where metal sheets are made to custom fit your home. The most common place gutters tend to fail is at the seams over time, so you won’t have this problem if you purchase seamless gutters.
