Gutter Installation in Atlanta: 3 Factors to Consider


  • Popular gutter materials include copper, vinyl, stainless steel, and aluminum
  • Gutter designs include k-style, fascia, half-round, and European style
  • Gutter features from downspouts to gutter guards can improve a gutter system

Maybe your home needs gutters for the first time, or perhaps you already have gutters, but they need to be replaced. Either way, gutter installation is a big decision. You have some choices to make because even if you are replacing an old gutter system, you don’t have to keep the style, material, and features of the old one – you can make the choices you feel are best for your own home now. Take a look at some of the factors that you’ll need to consider when installing new gutters.

The Material

Brick front home.
Different houses may look and function better with different gutter materials or styles.

Gutters can be made out of several different materials. What do you prioritize? Is it price? Durability? Variety? Do you want your gutters to be attractive? Or maybe you prefer them to be inconspicuous. Either way, the material matters. 

Aluminum, vinyl, stainless steel, and copper are some of the most common choices for gutter material. Aluminum is perhaps the most common option. Both aluminum and vinyl are affordable and come in various colors to match any home. Stainless steel and copper cost more but can give your home a more distinctive look – copper provides an especially upscale appearance. Your gutter contractor can go over your options with you and help you decide which material is right for your home. 

The Design

If you’re only accustomed to seeing one style of gutter, you may think they all look alike, but they really don’t. Some styles are more popular than others, though. 

K-style gutters are the most popular in many areas. They’re called k-style gutters because when viewed from the side, they resemble the shape of the letter k. Another popular choice is fascia gutters, which are designed to be smooth-faced and hide the edges of the rafter tails from view.

Less popular styles include the half-round style and European style gutters. The half-round style has become less popular because they tend to get too filled with debris and overflow. The European style is similar to the half-round style except in materials that weather naturally. 

Gutter style may affect the functionality of your system as well as the look of your house, so it’s best to consider carefully and speak with an expert before choosing. 

The Features

Gutter systems have additional features that need to be considered.

A gutter system is more than just gutters. You’ll need other features as well. You’ll need downspouts, for instance. You may need splash blocks or downspout extenders to help move the water away from the foundation and avoid overflowing the landscaping. 

You may also want gutter guards to prevent debris from getting side your water system and keeping the water flowing freely. Or gutter heaters to prevent ice dams during the winter. 

With the right contractor to help you, you can make good decisions about your new gutter system and what it will need. Searching for affordable gutter installation in Atlanta? Lednor Home Solutions will help you find the right fit for your budget. Learn more

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
