Seamless Aluminum Raingutters (also called Continuous Aluminum Rain Gutters) make up 79% of all rain gutters installed in the United States
This popular type of raingutter is made at your home to the exact lengths needed. No longer is it necessary to splice together 10 foot sections that will eventually leak and separate. Our “factory on wheels” comes right to your home.
Experienced technicians measure your house and fit each raingutter to exactly the right lengths needed. That’s right, if the back of your home is 60 feet across, we’ll make one 60 foot piece of pre-painted aluminum rain gutter!
Seamless Aluminum Raingutters come in different sizes, weights, and colors. In areas that get a lot of snow, a heavy weight (.032″) aluminum is commonly used. This helps prevent warping and distortions caused by ice and snow.
Throughout much of the United States, where snow and ice is not a factor, a medium weight (.027″) aluminum is used. A lighter weight can also be used where price is of particular concern.

Raingutters and downspouts are installed to collect the water that run off the roof during rain or snow melting and channel it to spill away from the house, thus preventing foundation seepage. It will also increase the width of the roof’s overhang and help prevent snow slides during winter. The maintenance of the gutters and downspout may be tricky, leaves, seeds and twigs tend to collect in them and clog the downspouts, in winter, ice hanging from the gutters may damage and weaken it.
The cheapest option to use as gutter material is galvanized steel, but it has to be painted, another cheap option is to use unpainted aluminum, it is very durable unless exposed to salty air (sea-cost areas), aluminum is shiny, and you might want to paint it for a better look. Other materials to use as gutters are aluminum with factory baked on enamel, and aluminum covered with a thin layer of vinyl, there are also solid vinyl gutters, all three are highly durable, relatively cheap and require very little maintenance. Another expensive option is copper. The thickness of metals used in gutters and downspouts is commonly 26-gauge stainless steel; a 24-gauge will be stronger.
It is recommended to install caps and screens for easy maintenance and cleaning of gutters and downspouts to make the job much easier. Make sure your gutters and downspouts have sufficient capacity to handle the quantity of water that may runoff the roof, 5-inch gutters are very common, but a larger roof might be better off with a 6-inch gutter. A steep roof may require a bigger gutter too regardless of the roof’s size, as rain water will run faster down to the gutters. The gutter should be sloped towards the downspout approximately 1 inch for every 12 lineal feet. The downspouts should be fastened to the wall every 5 to 6 vertical feet.

If you want something cheap then copper is not the way to go. You’ll be better off purchasing aluminum gutters. Since installing gutters can be a pain then buying a quality gutter that you will only have to install once is generally the more economic solution.
