At Masters gutter installation is serious business. Here are some of the reasons to trust Masters with your gutter project.
Steel vs. Aluminum:
Colors ǀ Process: We believe that to have truly satisfied customers, we must offer the highest quality products at competitive prices. Here are the reasons why we feel 26 gauge steel is the best material for your rain gutter system
Steel is much stronger than aluminum, so steel gutters are less likely to sustain damage from hail, ice loads, or leaning ladders against them. Aluminum gutters are typically .027″ or .032″ in thickness. To equal the tensile strength of 26 gauge steel, the aluminum material would need to be .056″ thick.
Expansion and Contraction
Aluminum expands and contracts twice as much as steel with temperature change. This causes leaks at corners. It also stresses the fasteners near the ends of the gutters and works them loose over time. The effect is increased in proportion to the length of the gutter. We have observed aluminum gutters as short as 64 feet that have worn themselves in half due to expansion and contraction. The use of steel eliminates this problem.
Enameled 26 gauge steel is the superior material for any rain gutter system application. Aluminum of .032″ thickness is an acceptable alternative only for light duty application in warm, hail-free climates, if eave lengths are sufficiently short.
