Rain gutters are the unsung heroes of our homes and building structures. They capture rain water and direct it to the ground through downspouts away from siding, windows, doors, outdoor living spaces and, most importantly, foundations.
Most residential gutters come in two sizes, five inch and six inch. Materials include aluminum, steel, zinc, vinyl or copper in a standard “K” style. The most popular and widely used gutter material is aluminum. Copper gutters are a little more of an investment but can last more than 50 years.
While most common, open rain gutters also can capture leaves, pine needles, acorns and storm debris. This can clog downspouts and create drainage problems. In dry conditions, this can become a fire hazard, and in wet conditions, it can cause structural damage to your home. Gutter covers are an affordable investment and can save your home from unnecessary and costly damage.
Choosing the right gutter product requires several considerations. The right product will:
- Protect your home or building
- Meet your environmental needs
- Enhance architectural style of your home or building
- Match color
