6 Reasons to install PVC Rain Gutters​

Making the switch from metal to PVC rain gutters is advantageous for a number of reasons. The advantages are that PVC gutters are strong, flexible, inexpensive, durable, adaptable and easy to install. You will no longer have to deal with bent metal gutters. Because they are made from plastic, you immediately gain the many benefits of that material. If it is time to replace the gutters and downspouts on your home, strongly consider using PVC as an alternative to tin or aluminium.

 

Strength...

The first reason to switch to PVC gutters is strength. PVC is made from moulded plastic which means that the gutters are formed in one continuous unit. There is no paint to scratch or welded seams to corrode over time. In the shape and size of gutters, plastic is stronger than the metal alternatives. The weight of snow, ice or other loads will have less of an effect on PVC gutters. Plus, ladders will not dent the material and any blemishes on the surface will not be visible.

 

Flexibility...

Another reason to use PVC is its flexibility. Unlike metal gutters, PVC will not lose its shape when it bows slightly. In fact, it is manufactured to be able to bow with weight. Metal gutters are flexible, but when their shape is distorted they stay that way. Bending, denting and twisting effects in metal gutters are easily visible and can become an eyesore. With PVC, you avoid these problems.

 

Price...

Using PVC for your gutters is less expensive than installing metal. You do not want the final result to look cheap, but if you pick the right product, you will end up with a nice system of gutters at an affordable price. Be sure to hire the right people to install it so that you do not have to deal with poor workmanship.

 

Adaptability...

Because PVC gutters are injection moulded plastic, their shape and colour can be adapted to the style of your home. Custom orders will likely increase the price you pay, but if you want the gutters to match precisely with the exterior of your home, this is an option available to you. You may also be able to purchase PVC gutters made from recycled materials. In this way, you are contributing to a sustainable living arrangement while using a superior product.

 

Installation...

PVC gutters are easy to install, however there is a skill to the installation of gutters including the proper mounting and pitch. With the right tools and the advantage of experience, the Gutter Blokes can make the installation proceed without a hitch.

 

Durability...

PVC is very light, flexible and strong. It is well suited for use in colder temperatures that receive a lot of snowfall. Also, because it is water-resistant, PVC gutters will never freeze, rust or corrode. 

 

Because the material is more durable, especially in regions prone to extreme weather, PVC is superior to metal gutters. It is more expensive than metal, yet it is customizable to adapt to the exterior finish of your home. If you are replacing your gutters, consider PVC as a viable option.
