"Measuring for New Gutters"

How To Choose the proper Gutters?

Choosing the new gutters for your home or business can look like a daunting task, as there are many options that you need to consider. From the style of the gutter to the gutter shape and type of gutter material you want to use, there are many options you need to consider, including cost.

A crucial item on your spring maintenance checklist should be to inspect and clean out your existing gutters. Regular cleaning and maintenance will extend the lifespan of your gutters and give you the opportunity to identify any issues with your gutters before a problem arises.


If your gutters are showing signs of serious wear and tear, such as cracks, holes, or leaks. For example, if they’re sagging or pulling apart from your home’s fascia board or if you have several missing, loose, or bent fasteners, these are all signs that you need to start looking for a company to repair or install new gutters. Here at All About Gutters Inc, we specialize in New Gutter installation as well as gutter repair.
If you have leaks this could mean serious water damage to the roof, fascia board, decking, or even inside your home with mold or ceiling damage. These are all signs that new gutters should be in your immediate future. Many people fail to understand that dangerous water leaks and overflows can cause tremendous damage to a home, sometimes before the homeowner is even conscious of the matter.


Here at All About Gutters Inc, we offer a range of gutters depending on your needs. There are many choices available on the market today, with aluminum, copper, steel, galvanized steel, zinc, and vinyl gutters. We work with you to determine the best solution for you and your home or business.

  • Aluminum is the current industry standard and offers several advantages over other types of gutters. Aluminum is lightweight, resistant to corrosion, and available in a wide selection of colors while being a very cost-effective option.
  • Galvanized steel gutters are coated with a layer of zinc and are quite strong but could even be vulnerable to rust.
  • Steel gutters are also available with a coating of aluminum and zinc, which alleviates the rust problem and awfully expensive.
  • Zinc gutters are yet another option and are also strong, durable, and normally don’t require painting or finishing.
  • Vinyl is another inexpensive option. Though available in a wide selection of colors to match many kinds of vinyl siding, vinyl gutters aren’t as durable as metal, however; they break down over time with exposure to sunlight and may therefore need to get replaced much more frequently.

Most professionals note that aluminum gutters offer the only combination of durability and price. As far as replacement gutters go, your best option is seamless aluminum gutters with a minimum thickness of 0.025 inches.
