6 Benefits of Aluminium Gutter

Aluminium gutters are known for their durability as well as their aesthetically pleasing exterior. But there are many benefits to choosing aluminium gutters for your property. To help you identify your requirements, here are five of them.

A timeless aesthetic effect

The appearance of aluminium gutters is extremely neutral which makes it the perfect rainwater system for a huge variety of properties, from old country houses to modern new builds. Whatever period features your house has, or whatever era your house is from, aluminium gutters would not look out of place.


As aluminium will not rust it is a perfect choice for the long term. It is extremely durable and has an expected lifecycle of about 30 years, depending on maintenance. This makes them extremely cost-effective too.

Wider range of colours

With aluminium gutters you have a wider selection of manufactured colours available. Whilst you will probably need to paint other gutters, or just stick to a limited array of colours, aluminium gutters often come ready made in many different colours.

An aluminium gutter is not prone to colour bleaching which can be caused by exposure to the sun and therefore will keep looking like new throughout its lifecycle.

Will not crack

Another great advantage is that aluminium gutters will not shatter or crack due to temperature changes. It is not at all affected by thermal expansion. In addition, it is often available in a seamless style guttering which prevents any leaks and unsightly joints.

Very little maintenance

Apart from the regular cleaning out of leaves and dirt from the gutters there is usually very little maintenance required. This will be a welcome feature for most people as there is no need to worry about priming, painting, and protecting the gutters.

Easy to install

The great thing about aluminium gutters is that is it very easy to install by yourself. There is no need for soldering of the joints so no need to call in professionals. You don’t need to worry about the weight either as aluminium gutters are lightweight and easy to move about when installing.
