My House Looks Nicer with New Gutters

When I decided to buy new gutters for my house, I went online to see what my options were. I had purchased steel gutters when I first bought the house, and I honestly thought that they would have held up better. I had heard about aluminium guttering, so I wanted to see what made it so much better than steel. I was able to find a company’s website that explained it perfectly. The Gutter Guys site detailed exactly why aluminium gutters are better, and I liked that I could see pictures as well.

There were two things that I really liked about the Colortuff gutters. The first one is that they cannot rust because of the material that they are made from. Marine-grade aluminium is used, which is the same thing that some boats are made from. Continue reading

Putting Up New Gutters for Least Money

I need to do some home renovations on a tight budget and so it is important that I am able to find a supplier that will sell me the materials I need for the least cost possible. I am willing to spend a fair amount of time comparing costs across different suppliers, in order to make sure that I am not paying too much. Right now, I am browsing the selection on to check out their selection and see what the prices are. So far, so good, in terms of what the prices look like.

Of course, I won’t be able to buy everything I need for my home renovation projects on that one website, but it should be a good place to get the stuff I need to tackle one of my first projects. I want to put new gutters on my house, and I want to have it done fairly cheaply. I am not sure yet whether I am going to hire a contractor for the job, or if I will try to do it myself with the help of some people that I know. I have a few friends that do general contracting and they should be savvy enough to put up a gutter on a house, I would think.

I am pretty excited about these projects, except for the impact that they are going to have on my bank account. There is no way around it though, it’s not like I can have my cake and eat it too. I will just have to do my best to save money during these renovations without cutting corners, because I want these projects to be done right. I have wanted to do this for a number of years, and now I am feeling that the time is right.
