Let’s Talk Gutters
If you are curious what exactly a gutter does or the different kinds of gutters and what they cost, keep reading on. A gutter has 6 parts on it: The gutter, end cap, fascia bracket, downspout bracket, and the elbow. All of these pieces come together to essentially create your gutter system. Hiring a professional contractor to install your gutters is what we always recommend. This will ensure that it is done correctly and that you don’t have to go onto your roof or use a tall ladder which can be very dangerous. Also, when you hire a professional from Trophy Roofing, you don’t have to go get any materials, we do all of that for you. There are several different types of material that gutters come in like vinyl, aluminum, and steel. We will break each of these down, below.
Vinyl: Vinyl is the least expensive gutter material of the bunch and that is because each section just snaps together. This is often the material that people buy when they put gutters on their homes by themselves. There aren’t a ton of color options to choose from with this but if you really wanted to, they could be painted. The best part about these is that they won’t rust, but they can bend and bow out from heavy rain or snow. The price of these are typically between $1 to $2 per foot.
Aluminum: Aluminum can get a little more expensive, depending. It comes in a ton of different colors to match your home and it won’t rust. You can get it in sections or buy it to be seamless. A con of aluminum gutters are that they can dent or bend easily, but these gutters typically last around 25 years. The cost is anywhere between $2 to 8 a foot.
Steel: Steel gutters are typically coated with something like zinc to keep them from rusting. These are also able to be ordered in seamless or sections. Stainless steel will never rust and costs between $4 to $12 a foot.
Zinc: Zinc is a great option for gutters because they are very strong and will not ever rust. When this starts to become weathered, it turns a grey color. These last around 30-50 years on your home and cost anywhere between $9 and $10.
Copper: Copper gutters are probably the best you can get because they can last 100 years in any climate that you live in. They can be bought in seamless or sections and cost around $11 to $18 a foot. That does not include installation.
