Homeowners and home enthusiasts alike know that weather conditions will affect the performance of certain housing materials. Choosing the best gutter guard material for your local climate can get overwhelming in this regard.

The Merits of Considering the Climate for Gutter Guard Material

Infinity Home Improvement lends a hand by eliminating some of these considerations. As it turns out, choosing a gutter material is easier if you take climate into consideration.

Why Consider the Climate?

Gutters and gutter guards made of different materials serve a variety of purposes. What might work for colder areas might not be as effective in warmer regions. With that in mind, it might be worthwhile to examine how these different types of materials perform in varying climates. Assessing whether a certain type of gutter will hold up to expectations can help you save on repair and replacement costs in the long run. Think of it as picking an appropriate outfit for the  weather. You wouldn’t wear a jacket in the sweltering heat, would you?

The same principle goes for gutter and gutter guard materials: you expose your home to unnecessary risks when you select the wrong type.

What Works Best, Then?

At any rate, heat affects different materials by way of expansion. Residential areas in a warmer climate are generally better off with stainless steel gutter systems (which includes gutter guards), as these are extremely durable and can withstand severe weather changes. You don’t want expanding gutters pushing into your siding since the protrusion can compromise the overall thermal performance of your home.

If you find stainless steel gutters costly, aluminum gutters are your next best bet. Aluminum gutters can match the weather resistance of their stainless steel counterparts, at a more affordable price and lighter weight.
