Gutter Pro replaced the entire overhang and gutter system on this old home in Bourne, MA. The old wooden gutter had failed and the trim had all rotted. Gutter Pro rebuilt rotted rafter tails and installed new Azek vinyl fascias, soffit, and crown moulding. The SnapLock Gutter System was installed with 3″ round corrugated aluminum downspouts to finish the project off. Shortly afterward, the owner had all of the siding replaced and now the place looks good as new.
This article presents some very valid concerns with aluminum gutters. Copper and steel are much harder and resist denting more than aluminum gutters. Aluminum can also deteriorate when in close proximity to more noble metals such as copper that may be used for drip edges, roof caps or flashing.
Typically, basic seamless gutters also need to be maintained with cleanings to prevent the system from becoming clogged which can lead to damage and exterior trim rot on the the home or water in the basement. There are aluminum gutters on the market that eliminate the cleaning chore such as the Englert Leafguard gutters system. It is a one piece covered seamless gutter that is guaranteed not to clog or we clean it for free.
Expansion of an aluminum gutter has been a accepted contributor to gutter failure. Gutters with seams develop leaks over time and seamless gutters can become distorted and loosen as the home expands and contracts. SnapLock gutter systems from Gutter Pro eliminate the issue of expansion and contraction on an seamless aluminum gutter and minimize the potential for water seepage behind the gutter which can lead to rotted fascia and trim.
