What is the best material for residential rain gutters?
You can find different types of gutters in different materials. In Texas though, you mainly find copper, aluminum or vinyl. We personally recommend aluminium and copper since they are durable and easy to customize.
Vinyl gutters could be an inexpensive option to solve the problem as a DIY. They won’t rust but they will only solve the problem temporarily since they tend to crack easily, as well as fade, and leak. We unfortunately do not install this type as it does not provide enough versatility.
People prefer aluminum for the most part, thanks to its looks, durability and cost. Aluminium comes in a wide variety of colors and could be painted. On the downside, this material can dent easily and change with the weather.
Though copper could be the most expensive option, these gutters are beautiful, long-lasting and a must for high-end residences or historic restorations. They do require a level of upkeep if you want to keep the shine, otherwise they will develop a beautiful patina with time.
