Residential Roofing 101: Choose the Right Gutters for Your Home, Ewa, Hawaii

When it comes to residential roofing, gutters are a crucial feature of the infrastructure that protects your home. Having the right ones installed will divert water from your house and complement its visual style. Based in Pearl City, HI, Tory's Roofing & Waterproofing is a proud Hawaii roofing contractor that has been serving Oahu since 1972. Whether you need roof maintenance or new energy-efficient roofing, the professionals will make sure your home is expertly fortified. 

As you mull over which gutters are best for your home, it helps to weigh the pros and cons of some of the options. Here is a rundown from Pearl City’s residential roofing professionals. 

  • Stainless Steel: While stainless steel will last longer than most other materials, it may be an odd fit for residential roofing. With most housing styles, the steel will look awkward contrasted with the facade. 
  • residential roofingVinyl: Vinyl gutters are among the most affordable options, even though you’re getting quality material, which can come in a wide variety of color choices. While they are among the easiest gutters to install, their main vulnerability is they can crack in the face of severe temperatures.
  • Copper: Although copper gutters are usually more expensive than the alternatives, your money will buy you an aesthetically-pleasing gleam, in addition to impressive longevity. One weakness is copper’s tendency to change color over time unless you are extremely diligent with maintenance. 
  • Aluminum: Another material, which is a bit less expensive, is aluminum, which is also easy to install. You’ll have a nice selection of color options, but aluminum gutters can sometimes get bent out of shape if they’re struck by branches or objects tossed by the wind. 

When making a decision about your gutters, don’t hesitate to reach out to Tory's Roofing & Waterproofing for a second opinion and to help with the installation.
