The cons about copper are that it is pricey and it needs to be installed by an experienced professional. It is commonly seen in expensive residencies and luxurious properties. There is no need to paint the copper.
  • Seamless Aluminum: This type of gutter is fabricated at the job site and there needs to be hauling of long sheet of aluminum in order for the gutters to be seamless. This reduces the chances of any leaks and therefore is as better option in comparison to gutters with seams. It costs a little more than regular aluminum gutters and it is a very common type of gutter.
  • Steel: On the plus side it is very strong and durable; it can start to rust after 5 to 10 years depending on the location of the property and weather exposure. The cons are that it is heavy and not easy to install and it can be a bit pricey. It can always be painted.
  • Vinyl: It is inexpensive and very lightweight. It is so easy to install that most homeowners do it themselves. It does not come in many colors and colors tend to fade away with time. It is not recommended to install it in extremely cold weather because it will eventually crack and damage.
