Gutter Material

When considering which gutters to choose, material is a factor in how often you need to replace gutters. Aluminum gutters last about 20 years while copper gutters will last 50 years or more. Aluminum is more likely to be damaged, leak and need replacement. Copper will have a natural metallic color, while aluminum can be painted to match your house or roof. L & J Gutters can install aluminum or copper gutters.

They take up less space while being aesthetically pleasing. They can be more expensive than regular gutters, but the trade is increased home value and curb appeal. Half-round gutters are a favorite of historic homes.

Regular Gutters

Regular gutters or “K-style” gutters are flat on the back and bottom with a curve like a “k” on the outside edge. It is often the first choice with pitched roofs as they hold more water than a round gutter which makes them less likely to overflow. Regular gutters give the home a more modern feel.
