If you are considering new gutters for your home, one of the decisions you’ll need to reach is what colour to go with. If you plan to paint your home or change the siding, you should consider that first so that your new gutters complement that change rather than what is there now. While having gutters that perform well is important, you want to be sure the gutter colour adds to the appearance of your home. Here are a few tips for choosing the right colour for your gutters.
- Consider the roof colour. There are two trains of thought when it comes to choosing a gutter colour that looks right with the roof. The first is using a similar colour so the gutters don’t call attention to themselves. The other is to go with something striking and contrasting, such as copper, galvalume or other modern styles you’ll want to show off.
- Complement exterior colour. Your gutters can blend in when you match them to your exterior colour as an alternative to matching to the roof colour. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same. Your goal is just that the colours don’t clash.
- Outline by matching trim colour. You could achieve a nice harmony if you match your gutters to the colour used for the trim on your home. This won’t work with all types of architecture, but it can be striking in many cases.
- Consider cost. You might love a unique colour for your gutters but be sure to ask about the price as a non-traditional gutter colour can often be significantly higher in cost than a standard colour. If you are set on the unique colour, consider using it just on the front of the home to increase curb appeal while using the lower cost option for the rear of your home.
