Gutter Colors

Aluminum and steel gutters come in a variety of colors. Choose colors that will blend with your house. The gutters and downspouts are available in a number of different colors. Sectional aluminum and steel gutters come in more than 35 different colors – ideal for matching trim and house colors.

Gutter colors are baked on at the factory. These coatings generally provide stain resistance, making gutters easy to maintain. Some manufacturer coatings allow surface residue to be easily removed with conventional cleaning solutions and detergents and a clean water rinse. Vinyl gutter material typically is brown or white. The latter color holds up better in intense sun. Copper is prized for its natural color and comes unpainted. If you like the look of copper but not the price, some manufacturers sell a faux-copper gutter made of aluminum.

We provide aluminum gutters in the colors listed below. Please note that the screen representation of the colors below may not represent the true color.

Aluminum

Why choose aluminum gutters?​

Most residential and commercial rain gutters are fabricated from .027″ or .032″ aluminum with baked on enamel finish. Aluminum is an ideal metal choice for the majority of residential gutters because it will not rust and has a longer shelf life than the traditional steel made gutters.

Galvalume / Zincalum Steel

Galvalume Steel…With the Corrosion Resistance of Aluminum​

Galvalume and Zincalum are steel, with a coating of aluminum and zinc. The result is a strong, durable metal with proven long term corrosion resistance.

The Galvalume / Zincalum Process…

The coating is 55% Aluminum and 45% Zinc and is applied to the steel sheet by a continuous hot dipping process. The Result… The coating shields the steel from moisture and contaminants while providing protection at scratches and cut edges. The process gives steel the unique combination of strength, long term corrosion resistance, with galvanic protection at cuts and bends in the material.

With more b​enefits…

as a uniform, architectural shine that weathers evenly. - Resists fingerprints and smudging. - Its roll formed dry so there are no oils.

Hot-dip galvanized steel has been effectively used for more than 150 years. The value of hot-dip galvanizing stems from the relative corrosion resistance of zinc, which under most service conditions, is considerably better than iron and steel. In addition to forming a physical barrier against corrosion, zinc, applied as a hot-dip galvanized coating, cathodically protects exposed steel.

The Galvanized Difference

Furthermore, galvanizing for protection of iron and steel is favored because of its low cost, the ease of application, and the extended maintenance-free service that it also provides. Galvanized Steel is an excellent solution for Northern climates with snow and ice conditions. A strong and durable metal that contracts one half as much as aluminum.​
