Guttering is something that is vital for every home, protecting homes from the potential roof damage caused by rainwater, however, with so many choices, it takes a bit of planning when choosing the right gutter system.
In the race against the best gutter on the market the aluminium gutter system is fast growing in popularity among architects, builders and homeowners alike and when assessing the vast array of benefits, it isn’t hard to see why aluminium gutters are the preferred choice within the market. There are several advantages associated with aluminium gutter systems.
Here are a few:
Many homeowners think that installing steel gutters is a good option, however, in reality, steel gutters tend to rust after a period of five years after installation when the paint starts to break off. Although used in many homes, it isn’t the best choice. Aluminium gutters, on the other, hand last much longer, with a lifespan of up to 30 years and, they never rust.
As durable as they are, aluminium gutters are the most affordable type of gutter system on the market. Stainless steel gutters start at approximately R125,00 per metre while aluminium gutters start from as little as R96,00 per metre. Prices are always dependant based on each job, however, it can clearly be seen that aluminium guttering is the most affordable of the two.
In general, it is an industry known fact that aluminium gutters don’t leak and, moreover, aluminium gutters come in seamless designs, meaning that they are made from a single long piece of aluminium rather than attaching smaller aluminium pieces together. Because of this, there are no joiners needed in seamless aluminium gutters so there is no chance of leaking.
Most gutters have a limited number of colours that can be used but, with aluminium, homeowners can choose from a variety of colours to match the colour of their homes. Apart from a wide variety of colours, painting aluminium gutters is also easier to paint than steel.
These are only a few of the many benefits of having an aluminium gutter system installed at your home. If you are interested in a high-quality aluminium gutter system for your home, contact Gutter Science by email or telephone to get a quote for your home installation.
