The difference between vinyl and aluminum rain gutters
It is known that in time, house owners preferred as the most popular choice the aluminum rain gutter. In the last years a good alternative to aluminum gutters appeared. The alternative to aluminum is now the vinyl rain gutter.
Regarding costs, the vinyl gutters are cheaper to buy and install up against aluminum gutters which have a bigger price depending to thickness of the metal used. Because of its material, the vinyl gutters are less expensive that the metal ones but in spite of that fact the lifespan is smaller. Once you install an aluminum gutter you know that it will last a very long time. Furthermore, both of them will keep rust away; however aluminum is more exposed to damage.
Another difference between them is the color. The aluminum gutters are available in numerous colors, while vinyl gutters are made in only two colors, brown and white. If you want to order any other color you will have to pay an additional tax. Another difference is that the vinyl gutters are installed by parts, while the aluminum gutters are seamless. For that reason, aluminum gutters are less prone to leak.
In conclusion, both types of gutters have advantages and disadvantages. What choice can be good for you, it can be bad for another person. Think about all factors and take the best decision.
