Gutters are a crucial component in the protection of your home by effectively moving water away from it. Additionally, gutters are one of the first things you see when it comes to your home’s exterior aesthetic.
But in terms of functionality and quality, does the color of the gutter matter?
When it comes to choosing a color for your gutter, there are about 30 of them for you to choose from.
All of the colors provide the same quality, but homeowners should attempt to match the siding. Mixing siding and gutter colors that are vastly different from each other could have a negative impact on the value of your home if you are planning on selling in the future. You want the gutter and the siding to look seamless together.
Thankfully, siding manufacturers have matched siding availability with gutter availability in terms of color. Homeowners now have the easy option of having uniform gutter and siding colors, making it simpler to choose.
Impact on Quality
The color of the gutter does not impact the quality of the gutter or its ability to function because the main purpose is to protect the home. You will not have to worry about the color of the gutter dripping onto the siding, windows, or other exteriors.
At George J. Keller & Sons, we promise quality gutter installation with baked-on enamel and a 20-year finish to protect the color. Today, gutters are manufactured with the future in mind so that homeowners have the ability to power-wash dirt, paint, or debris without impacting the functionality or color.
