There are many ways to improve your home that also add to it’s curb appeal. This can include replacing or repairing the roof, applying new paint over it’s faded surfaces or even recovering the exterior with new siding. However, there is also a simple addition or repair that can be made that also provides a functional purpose, rain Gutters. These are the tray like system that surrounds the roofs of most homes and their primary purpose is to collect and divert the rain running off the rooftop. However, many gutters are made from aluminum and are beaten up, falling down or are in other states of disrepair.

This doesn’t mean that aluminum is a bad product for gutter material. In fact, it is one of the best. The real problem is the abuse that gutters can receive. For instance, during severe storms the trees around your house can hit the gutters or limbs can be broken off in high winds and damage them as well. Such damage can affect the functionality of the Gutters too. In the case of dented gutters the water flow could be restricted. Damaged gutters can also have cracks in them which allow the water to run out in areas you don’t want it to.

Another popular gutter material is PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) or vinyl. This product provides some very attractive gutters when installed properly. In some areas the vinyl gutter may not be as reliable as aluminum depending on how bad the local weather is, but they are also more affordable and generally easy to repair.

One common problem with gutter systems is the leaves and debris they collect. Some designs eliminate this by using a specially constructed cover that prohibits the debris from entering the gutter itself while allowing the water free access. However, even these systems will need occasional cleaning as the leaves or other material collects on top of the gutter.
