09 Dec Gutters – Everything You Need To Know About Colors
For years, the choice of colors for Massachusetts gutters was much the same as for Henry Ford’s Model T. Mr. Ford was famously quoted as saying that buyers could purchase a Model T “in any color, so long as it’s black”. The selection of colors available when choosing gutters hasn’t been much better. Up until just a few years ago gutters came in two or three “stock” colors, usually white and brown and occasionally green.
Massachusetts Gutters and Right to Choose
Even today the idea of having a selection of colors is still relatively new. Most do-it-yourself rain gutter supplies at home improvement warehouse stores are still limited to white or brown. This is particularly true if you are choosing vinyl gutter products. If you want something more colorful you have some options to choose from. Here are two ways to get the color you want.
Prime and Paint
In the past, brown or white were typically your only Massachusetts gutter color choices. If you wanted to compliment your home’s siding with yellow gutters and downspouts the best option was to paint them. Professional painters often use airless spray guns to paint gutters and downspouts.
If you are painting the gutters yourself obviously don’t start the job if there is a chance of rain in the forecast. Always use cardboard shields if you are spraying paint and make sure the gutters have been power washed and treated with a bonding primer. A professional spray paint job will give you a smooth even finish and gutters that look like new and compliment your decor.
Baked On Color
Seamless gutters fabricated from rolled aluminum were first introduced in the 1970s and since that time the technology has evolved and improved dramatically. Using our mobile truck mounted gutter roller we can fabricate custom seamless gutters on site up to several hundred feet long in dozens of designer colors. The colors are baked on to provide a long lasting scratch resistant finish that complements your home.
