Connecticut Gutter & Exteriors installs many type of gutters for homeowners in Connecticut. One gutter material that is gaining popularity is zinc. Our customers choose zinc gutters for their homes because they offer several advantages compared to some other materials.
Zinc gutters are long-lasting and more durable than some other types of gutters. When zinc gutters come into contact with moisture and carbon dioxide, a zinc-carbonate layer forms. This protects the gutters and forms a patina that covers scratches and other imperfections that would otherwise detract from the gutters’ appearance.
Zinc gutters are available in a wide array of color options. No matter what color your home is, you can find zinc gutters in a color that will match or accent your house’s exterior for an attractive look.
Even though zinc gutters are very long-lasting and durable, they are less expensive than some other gutter materials, such as copper. Since zinc gutters last longer than many other gutter materials, they are a wise long-term investment that can save you money in the long run.
Zinc is a completely recyclable and environmentally friendly material. Zinc is also a fungistat, or a material that prevents the reproduction of fungus, mold, and mildew. A fungistat is not the same as a fungicide, or a substance that kills fungus. Since zinc is a fungistat, it is safe to use around vegetation and will not affect the growth of plants located near your house.
Zinc gutters are an attractive, durable, long-lasting, and affordable option. If you are thinking about replacing your gutters with new ones made of zinc, call Connecticut Gutter & Exteriors today to request an estimate.
