Are steel gutters more expensive than aluminum?

Undoubtedly, steel is a stronger material than aluminum, and our gutters are made with high-caliber galvanized steel for even greater strength. Our steel gutters will withstand the extreme temperatures of our winter season, year after year, while aluminum gutters can crack or split with such a drastic drop in temperature. In addition, aluminum gutters from other gutter companies are easily dented; our steel gutters will withstand damage caused by windblown debris and will keep looking like new in the future. When aluminum gutters came to market, they provided consumers with an additional alternative to steel gutters.

While PVC gutters, zinc gutters, and copper gutters are commercially available, many homeowners prefer aluminum and steel gutter materials. Many homeowners and professional contractors choose aluminum gutters instead of steel gutters for this reason. But when it comes to choosing between aluminum and steel gutter materials, aluminum gutters are more likely to leak. On average, you should paint aluminum gutters every 10 years and steel gutters every three to four years.

Installing seamless steel gutters will cost more, as a sheet metal operator will be required to form the gutters before hanging them.
