Steel: Gutters made from steel are extremely strong and are much less susceptible to damage from debris, wind or ice. 

Aluminium and vinyl: These two materials are the most popular and are the easiest to install because of their lightweight properties. Many homeowners choose to paint their aluminium gutters to match their wall so that the system doesn’t “show” as much.

Copper and Zinc: Most often seen in half-round designs, gutters made from these types of metals look beautiful. Homeowners who choose these metals do so because they add a classic finishing touch to home exteriors, for this reason, they are usually used for luxury homes.
