Which Is Better, Aluminum or Steel Gutters?
The lower price tag of aluminum gutters may draw your eyes if you need new gutters for your home, but if you live in Anchorage, Alaska, or a surrounding community, you need to take the local climate into consideration when choosing which gutters to have installed. The best option to rely on for continued performance even throughout our harsh winters is steel gutters from ABC Seamless of Anchorage, a leader among gutter companies serving the area. Let’s find out why our steel gutter are a better option.
It’s a Matter of Strength…
Hands down, steel is a stronger material than aluminum, and our gutters are made with heavy-gauge galvanized steel for even greater strength. Our steel gutters will endure the extreme temperatures of our wintry season, year after year, while aluminum gutters can crack or split with such a drastic drop in temperature. Plus, aluminum gutters from other gutter companies dent easily; our steel gutters will resist damage from windblown debris, maintaining their like-new appearance well into the future.
Most aluminum gutter systems are prefabricated and then spliced together for the installation. At ABC Seamless of Anchorage, we do things differently than other gutter companies. We’ll cut your gutters on site to ensure a perfect fit for your home and an appearance that is 100% free of seams. The seams that you’ll find on aluminum gutters can allow water to leak out or dirt to accumulate and clog the system, two failures of performance that you won’t have to worry about with our steel gutters.
