On our last post we talked about the downsides of using cheap PVC plastic on your gutter installs. There were a lot of them. This time though, we thought it best to bring out the good side of using aluminum gutters, and explaining why they are the go-to choice for any professional gutter installer in the North Shore.
Aluminum Gutters Last Longer
Durability was a big problem with PVC, but it isn’t so with aluminum gutters. Aluminum has the rigid capability to stand up to the winds and rains in Vancouver BC, without sagging or bending due to pressure from heavy rains. Aluminum is a non-ferrous metal, meaning it contains no iron. It will not decay in the natural elements for a very long time. Because of the extra rigidity, aluminum gutters are able to be installed with less supports, making them a great option for just about any architectural style.
Aluminum Gutters Look Great
Aluminum gutters can come in a great variety of styles and profiles. If you’re looking for something bright and modern, there will be something for you. And if you prefer to blend into your surroundings with a low profile approach to design, that is certainly an option as well. Aluminum gutters have a great deal of versatility, and are extremely popular for many contractors.
Aluminum Gutters Are Cost Effective
Money: Spend less of it! With the lower demands for servicing, and the increased curb value that they bring to a home, aluminum gutters are an extremely cost efficient choice for the homeowner in the Fraser Valley.
Sure, aluminum may not be the choice for everyone, but that’s why it’s so important to know what you’re buying. Speak to one of our gutter professionals to get more information on the perfect gutters for your unique home.
