Ottawa Gutters and Gutter Protection
Gutters come in many types of materials, sizes, and colors. When choosing gutters for your Ottawa home, you should consider the size of your budget, how much maintenance you plan to do, and the different aspects of various gutter materials.
Vinyl gutters are simple to cut and configure. One problem with vinyl gutters is that they are susceptible to brittleness with age and extreme cold.
Aluminum gutters are the most common. Primary aluminum is the thickest and most consistent type. Secondary aluminum should be avoided because it often has problems with inconsistent thickness. Aluminum is prone to denting, but its color weathers well. These gutters hold more water than traditional wood gutters.
Metal gutters are made of steel and copper. Although an attractive choice, copper is the most expensive type of Ottawa gutters. Call your Ottawa gutter contractor, for more information.
