By September 25, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

As you perform routine maintenance for your gutters this season, why not update their looks as well? While they may seem like a minor detail, they actually contribute to your home’s curb appeal. Choosing the right color, for instance, can already create a harmonious appeal for your exterior. Gutter Helmet® of Western North Carolina, your trusted provider of quality gutter covers, shares some tips:

 Gutter Color

Find Out If There Are Local Restrictions. Before you start, check if your city, subdivision, or homeowner’s association has certain guidelines involving exterior colors on your home. This spares you from being forced to take your gutters down and start over.

Consider Your Gutters’ Type of Material. There are specific gutter materials that hold paint well, such as aluminum and galvanized steel. There are also those that are designed to have a unique look all their own. Copper, for example, discolors to a green patina over time, which can actually add more beauty to your home.

Take Cues From Your Roof, Trim, and Exterior Wall. It’s important that your gutters match your roof’s color so they will appear as an extension of the roofline instead of a border. If you have a shingle roof, then gray, brown, black, or dark bronze are your top options. Meanwhile, if you’re aiming to accentuate your home’s details, you may use your exterior walls and trims as a base. Make sure that your choice of color doesn’t clash with them.

To ensure lasting efficiency and appeal for your gutters, consider installing Gutter Helmet. Apart from keeping your gutters clog-free, it also lends unique beauty to your home. Unlike other gutter covers, it features a PermaLife™ finish that resists peeling, chalking, and fading. It is available in a wide array of colors to give your home a distinctive appeal.
