PVC guttersPVC or plastic gutters are now the most used to set up a new gutter. However, only the hanging gutters can be PVC. PVC can take the color of the facade to match it, for greater discretion.
Copper guttersIt’s an aesthetic and maintenance-free gutter. It is resistant to all weather conditions, including the most extreme ones. It is suitable for equipping both seaside homes and those in the mountains.
Aluminum guttersAluminum gutters fit all types of gutters and walls, as they can be colored. They are both durable and easy to maintain. Opting for lacquered aluminum can further increase their service life.
Gutters avoid that the water stagnates on the roof and damages the tiles. Installing a drainage system is not enough. Gutters are necessary to ensure its proper functioning. The leaves and the foam are likely to block it and thus prevent a good evacuation.

By preventing rainwater from being in contact with the facade, the gutters avoid unsightly traces of pouring water. They also prevent damage to brick joints, door and window framing. Exposed to rainwater, these elements will lose their luster, but also swell under the effect of moisture.
