Gutter Maintenance Tips #4 – Rusted Gutters


Rusted Gutters

Rusted Gutters can lead to some serious gutter repairs,such as leaks and pieces falling off, if not taken care of in a timely manner. You should consider aluminum gutters, but if you’re going to stay with the old gutters until your budget allows you will need to get the rust off the old ones. To do this you will have to get off of the rust off, sand them down, and paint them with a good primer and then with a good quality RUST-INHIBITING paint.

Gutter Maintenance Tips #4 - Rusted Gutters

The reason we suggest aluminum gutters is not only because they will not rust over time, but they are inexpensive, durable, easy to work with, and are available in a wide range of colors. We offer seamless gutters which protects your gutter system from springing a leak.

Other types of gutter materials that are out there are galvanized steel gutter systems.

But this type of system will start to rust after 20-25 years but are worth it if you live in an area where extreme weather(heavy rains and snow) happen. For most of the area that we cover in Central Virginia, aluminum will do just fine.

We do offer galvanized steel gutters. Another materials is copper, this type is the most expensive and can bring a certain aesthetic to a home, they will change color and do not go with any style of home. The last material that we do not offer is vinyl. It is the least expensive but compared to its metal counterparts is not as sturdy or durable. It also tends to become brittle and break in the winter time. This could end up costing you more in the long run due to repairs.
