A roofing system without a complimentary gutter system is a sad roof. The roof does it all it can to properly flush debris and precipitation off the roof but if you don’t have a proper gutter system, that debris and precipitation falls anywhere including back decks, sidewalks, driveways, and your yard. So you get it, you need a gutter system, but you may not want to do the same gutters as everyone else on your block. To give you an idea of what you can do with your home’s gutters, let’s look 3 different types of gutters you can install on your home.
3 Types of Gutters You Can Install
The most popular type of gutter in the United States. Seamless gutters are manufactured onsite to perfectly fit the job they will be installed on. As the name implies seamless gutters lack the traditional seams found in many other types of guttering systems, since seams are where gutter leaks most often occur, seamless gutters are much less likely to leak. Seamless gutters are very affordable and come in several colors and multiple widths.
The traditional gutter has a trapezoidal shape but if you want your home to look a bit different than your neighbors you might try going with half-round gutters. Half-round gutters are shaped like half-circles to give your home a little extra character. Half-round gutters are usually more expensive than seamless gutters.
Copper gutters is a broad category of gutters but we make it its own type due to the beauty. Copper gutters are manufactured from copper and copper alloys, and lend a striking appearance to the home. The copper will age over time, lending more character to the home. If your home was roofed with a premium material such as slate or wood shake, you may want the look of copper to properly match it.
A roofing won’t function properly without gutters, so if your home doesn’t have any or your gutters are in disrepair, it’s time to get things up and running. There are many different types and styles of gutters to choose from but your best first move is to contact a local and reputable roofing or gutter company to get your home back in the gutter.
