Gutters keep your home safe from water damage, from your foundation to your overhangs. They can even keep your basement from flooding and landscaping from washing away. But did you know that when it comes to choosing gutters for your home, you have lot of options? Whether you’re looking for an architectural upgrade or your home has special drainage considerations, check out the specialty gutters from The Gutterman of TN!
Seamless gutters & Copper gutters
Traditional gutters feature joints and seams where different sections of gutters come together. Not only are these joints unsightly, but they can cause even more problems over time. As your gutters age, they develop leaks as the joints break down. Save yourself from this headache with seamless gutters!
For another low-maintenance option, that’s also beautiful and will weather the elements without breaking down, you should consider copper gutters. Copper is among the most durable materials. It also won’t corrode and develop leaks over time. On top of that, copper is beautiful. It begins as a beautiful metallic orange and fades to a lovely green patina. Copper gutters are a popular choice for the home that has historical or high-end looks.
Galvalume gutters & Half-round gutters
Galvalume gutters offer the durability of copper gutters at a lower price. Galvalume gutters are made from aluminum, stainless steel, and zinc. They won’t rust or corrode and will last for decades. Galvalume gutters are a matte steel gray that provides a sleek, modern look to any home.
Half-round gutters offer an unique shape. As the name suggests, they are a half-pipe shape. Because this was one of the earlier gutter shapes, they are often used on historic homes or to give them a traditional look. At The Gutterman of TN, we offer 6-inch half-round gutters. However, while these gutters protect most homes from rooftop water runoff, half-round gutters are not the best option for homes whose roofs generate high amounts of runoff.
Another unusual gutter shape is the box gutters. Box gutters are square in shape, and they are installed under the roof’s overhang. While these gutters are common on industrial buildings, they are a popular option for homeowners who want low-profile gutters that blend in with the roofline. Because they are difficult to spot from a distance, box gutters are a popular choice for modern homes.
Gutters are a necessity for your home, but that doesn’t mean you need to choose run-of-the-mill gutters! Whether you are looking for increased durability or looking to add architectural interest to your home, specialty gutters is right for you.
