If you want to have the perfect gutter system, you need to consider several factors. Among the factors to check for and consider is corrosion, particularly when using a metal gutter system.


Corrosion is metal’s natural enemy. Once corrosion starts, it will slowly eat through the metal. More commonly known as rust, corrosion does not only make your gutters look ugly. It also leads to damage and breakage, which can later result in water and moisture problems. Here are some factors that cause corrosion.

Poor Handling of Materials

When metal gutter materials are dented, scraped or damaged in any way during transit or installation, they can be susceptible to corrosion. It’s important to work with a gutter installation company that can ensure proper and careful handling of gutter materials and products.

Poor Storage of Materials

Metal gutter materials need to be stored properly to minimize chemical and environmental reactions. The gutter materials should also be protected from other products and substances that may damage them.

Poor Installation

During installation, the installer needs to make sure that the materials are handled properly to avoid scraping or denting them. The installation crew should also keep in mind not to mix or join together materials that are made from different types of metal.

Gutter Clogging

When gutters are filled and clogged with waste and debris, they are unable to completely dry. Wetness and moisture can speed up the corrosion process. Installing a gutter protection system ensures that the gutters are free of debris and can easily dry up once the rain stops.
