Gutters & Downspouts
Durable gutters to keep water away from your home
Gutters and downspouts are often overlooked by homeowners - as long as they're still attached to the roof and are cleaned out occasionally, they should be doing their job, right?

Potential gutter problems and their consequences
Even homes with gutters and downspouts can suffer extensive water damage. How?
Gutters clogged with debris can overflow, sending water everywhere and defeating the point of having gutters in the first place. Additionally, improperly-pitched downspouts can cause water drainage too close to the home, causing soil erosion and potential basement and foundation leaks.
Finally, old, dented gutters can cause aesthetic as well as functional issues. Your home won't look as nice with these gutters around your home, negatively affecting its appearance and potentially even its value.

The best materials for new gutters & downspouts
Because older gutters and downspouts can be difficult and costly to repair, many homeowners elect to replace old with new. When doing so, homeowners have to pick the material that best suits their budget and style needs.
Historically, gutters have been made from many different materials, including wood, steel, copper and seamless aluminum gutters. Aluminum gutters are most popular today because of their affordability, durability and color variety. These gutters can easily be custom made to fit to your home right off of an installation truck. However, some historic homes may deserve steel, copper gutters or even wood gutters to maintain their authentic appearance.
