Kinds of Gutters

There are many different types and styles of gutters that you can find at your local store. The materials range from zinc, vinyl, steel, copper, aluminum and more. Many experts believe that aluminum is one of the best gutter materials than other types and the great thing is that it comes in different colors, is the least expensive material and helps to keep corrosion at bay.

Other materials such as galvanized steel with zinc are strong but they rust easier than other gutters and those that are steel with a special coating will not usually rust but they are often much more expensive.  Zinc is another option that is strong and takes a lot of damage but it is a material that has to be finished or painted. Copper is one that is very noticed on your home but it costs way more than other materials.

Vinyl gutters are another option that are often chosen because they are less expensive than the other materials and they come in a variety of colors, but they tend to have more damage from things such as the hot sun and are not as strong as other materials which makes them less prone to last.

Another downfall to vinyl gutters is that they come in 10-foot pieces which mean that they have to be sealed and sometimes the sections will break and leak. Many professionals suggest that people purchase aluminum gutters because of the flexibility in styles and price and the fact that they are considered to be very durable.

When looking for a new gutter, you have different options such as the materials, shapes and styles of gutters. Some people will go with Fascia gutters which help to hide things such as the rafters, while others will choose round or half-round gutters when they want a more open view of the roof. The problem with some gutters though is that some of them, such as the round gutters, often become clogged with debris and they need to be cleaned out more often than other styles.

European-style gutters are generally made out of good materials such as copper or zinc. Gutters come in both sectional and seamless and most gutters are sold in sections that come in 10-foot measurements that will then be linked together with different kinds of connectors.

The problem with gutters that are sectional is that most of the time the joints will start to leak while the seamless gutters only have seams that are found in the corners of the gutters. These are made of strong materials and can be ordered in the custom length to fit your home perfectly.

VLR Homes, LLC



We have engaged Francisco and VLR Homes 3 times now. From painting the house, remodeling a master bath and constructing a screened in porch area they have responded with quality work at a fair price. When things came up like they always do, VLR had a solution (some panels of 50 year old siding replaced with Tyvek and up to code replacement). Again, at a fair price and done right the first time. Francisco is responsive with the good and the bad news â  straight up and always with a plan. We intend to use VLR in the future for projects large or small.
