Your gutters help protect your roof from water damage, but what protects your gutters from deterioration? Investing in protective coatings is a great way to bolster your gutters’ protection against the elements.

Gutter Coating Options

Today, Gutter Helmet® of Alabama, the leading gutter protection systems manufacturer, discusses the four most popular gutter coating options.


Silicone coatings are a great option for rainy climates because of their resistance to water damage. They’re also strongly resistant to harmful UV rays. These features do come at a price, as silicone roof coatings are a bit more expensive than most other coating option.


One of the most common options, acrylic coatings are available as a water-based formula with good weathering properties. Like silicone, acrylic also reflects harmful UV rays away from your roof. However, this formula is not suitable for all climates, as its performance fluctuates due to temperature changes.


There are two kinds of polyurethane coatings: aliphatic and aromatic. The former offers better UV protection than the latter. However, the aromatic type offers better abrasion resistance.

It has impressive weather resistance, UV protection, and it’s also available in a wide array of attractive colors. It’s what covers Gutter Helmet.
