Aluminum vs Vinyl Gutters – Which is Better?

by | Uncategorized

Whether you’re replacing your existing gutters or installing them for the first time, you will have to decide which type of gutter material is best for your home: aluminum or vinyl. Both materials offer advantages and drawbacks, so it’s important to understand the pros and cons before making a final decision.

There are many factors to consider when comparing aluminum vs vinyl gutters. You’ll need to evaluate the durability and cost of each material, as well as its aesthetic appeal. To help you out, we’ve put together some information on the advantages and disadvantages of both types of gutters.

Aluminum Gutters – Pros and Cons

The most popular type of gutter material is aluminum. This material is strong and lightweight, making it easy to install and maintain. Aluminum gutters are also highly resistant to corrosion, making them a popular choice for homes in coastal areas or other high-moisture climates.

One of the main advantages of aluminum gutters is their durability. Aluminum can withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rains or high winds without warping or cracking. This makes them ideal for homes in any climate.

Aluminum gutters are also relatively inexpensive compared to other materials, such as steel or copper.

Another major benefit of aluminum is its flexibility. It can be bent to fit around corners and curves, making them ideal for custom installations or homes with unique architectural features. Aluminum gutters are also available in a range of colors, so you can easily find a style that fits your home’s aesthetic.

Aluminum gutters aren’t without their flaws. They can dent easily if hit by a hard object such as a heavy tree branch. And like all gutters they need to be periodically cleaned out. An easy way to keep debris build up to a minimum is to have gutter guards installed.

Vinyl Gutters – Pros and Cons

The other popular option for gutters is vinyl. This material is lightweight, durable, and inexpensive. It’s also easy to install and maintain, making it a great choice for DIYers or those on a tight budget.

Vinyl gutters are also resistant to corrosion and can withstand extreme weather conditions without cracking or warping. However, vinyl is not as strong as aluminum so it is more likely to bend or break under heavy loads. It’s also not as aesthetically appealing as aluminum so it may not look as good on some homes. Vinyl can look “cheap” on a home.

There are some drawbacks to vinyl gutters. One is that they are not as aesthetically pleasing as aluminum. They are only available in limited colors and styles, which can limit your ability to customize the look of your home.

Vinyl gutters can also be easily scratched or damaged due to their soft surface. They also require more frequent maintenance than aluminum gutters as they tend to clog more easily and need to be cleared of debris to keep them functioning properly. Additionally, since vinyl is a softer and lightweight material, it does not do well during heavy rainfalls and may need to be replaced more often.

So Which is Better – Aluminum or Vinyl Gutters?

When it comes to aluminum vs vinyl gutters, aluminum is the clear winner. It is stronger, more durable, and more aesthetically pleasing than vinyl. It can also be customized to fit any home’s architecture and is available in a wide range of colors and styles.

Because of the advantages of aluminum, it is the only material we use for our seamless gutters. If you are a do-it-yourself person, don’t think regular sectional aluminum gutters or vinyl gutters are your only option. We offer DYI seamless gutters where we’ll come out and measure your home and then custom cut the gutters for you and then you can install them yourself.

I had so many gutter and gutter guards consults felt the most confident with Moores. It's a family owned local business with great customer service. Moore Sr. is very knowledgable in the business. He answered all my questions with transparency. He developed a fast and reliable solution for an existing pool gutter. Redirected the gutters around the house to minimize over flooding areas and safe guard the homes foundation. Gutters were put up 5/23/24. Father, son and grandson on site early morning of installation. Not one problem, excellent installation, great clean up, friendly services as usual. Our first rain fall after having the gutters up it all worked out! Definitely recommend 👌

I recently had new gutters installed and over the weekend when it rained I had a little problem with a gutter. I called Joe Sunday afternoon and advised him of the problem and he promptly came out the next day and fixed it with no questions asked. Now it’s perfect and even though Joe added a splash guard to redirect the rainfall he wouldn’t let me pay him even though it wasn’t included in the original price.They did a great job and showed up right on time. I would recommend them to everyone. The pricing was very fair and the work was excellent. Thanks to Joe,his son and grandson for the very professional service and great work. Paul

This review is from Medical Arts Professional Health Services, Inc in Spring Hill, FL. Moores Rain Gutters, LLC was prompt to respond for a consultation regarding a gutter system issue on our office building. Their pricing was appropriate with competitors in the area. The wait time to begin the job was reasonable and they completed the job in 1 day to our satisfaction. Their warranty is standard in the community. We are very pleased with the job that was done and we highly recommend Moores Rain Gutters LLC.

We had Moores install our gutters yesterday and we are more than satisfied with their work. Joe came and met with me and did the estimate on the spot and was able to provide gutters in bronze to match the soffit and fascia and downspouts to match the gray walls of the house. He was very personable and was within the price range that I was expecting. His son and grandson did the work and showed up exactly on time on the day of the installation and finished when they said they would. Very professional and they offer a great warranty for their work. You can’t go wrong with this company.

Another great experience with Moore’s Rain Gutters! Moore’s came out several months ago and replaced my old gutters. Joe and his sons did an excellent job. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Last week I had a patio poured in the same vicinity as 2 of the down spouts causing the elbows not to fit at the bottom anymore. I called Joe this morning and he was out within a couple of hours to make the adjustments. Problem solved free of charge! Do yourself a favor and call Moore’s Rain Gutters. You will be happy you did!
