Tips for Making the Right Gutter Choice

Home Design

Deciding what you would like your home to look like should be one of your first choices. No one said gutters had to be just functional – they can work toward the overall aesthetic of your home’s exterior too! Before beginning your decision-making process, ensure you have a clear vision of what you would like your home to look like.


Along with the overall look and feel of your home, you will want to choose your budget early on, as this will help you narrow down your choices. Many factors go into the costs of a new gutter system, so having a clear understanding of your budget will help guide you to the best option for your specific situation. 

Roof Pitch and Shape

Believe it or not, the pitch, or slope, of your roof can affect the type of gutter you will need. You will also need to consider the shape of your roof, and especially how many connection points you have. Both of these factors will play into the type of material and size of the gutter.

Material and Style

Gutters come in multiple shapes, sizes, and colors. The most common materials for residential gutters are aluminum and vinyl, though vinyl is not recommended because it will break and need replacing much sooner than gutters made out of any other material. You can also get gutters in galvanized or copper, which is more on the expensive side. At Shull Roofing, we provide seamless, K-style gutters, which really add a wonderful finish to your roof, and overall look of your home. These come in many colors, which also helps bring your personal touch to your home’s exterior.

Local Weather Patterns

Did you know your local weather plays a role in your roofing and gutter choices? Areas that see more rain and wind will need a much different roof than an area that only deals with temperature changes. In Kansas, your gutters will need to withstand the rain and wind that you would anticipate throughout the year. A local roofing company, like us at Shull Roofing, can use our professional roofing experience to help guide you to your best choice.
