Custom-Bilt Gutter Colors You Have to See

Published on: February 21, 2022

Custom Bilt gutter colors are diverse and will offer something for any home style or existing color combination you’re working to match. Whether you want your gutters to stand out or fade into the exterior of your home, you’ll find outstanding color options from one of the leading gutter manufacturers.

When you look at a home’s exterior, you probably don’t give much thought to the colors of the gutters. That’s because most homeowners select complementary colors that blend in with the home and allow other areas, such as the shutters or doors, to be the area of the home that stands out.

That’s not to say that it’s always the right choice to pick gutters that simply blend in with a home’s exterior. Some homeowners create beautiful pairings that stand out while still providing a timeless design that will provide curb appeal for decades.

How to Pick Custom-Bilt Gutter Colors

When evaluating gutter colors, you have many options for how to pair this exterior feature with the existing colors of your home.

  1. Match the gutters to your roof color. This creates one continuous look down your roof lines. Gutters attach to your roof, making it ideal to match this element blending in perfectly. 
  2. Coordinate the gutter color with your trim color. When you have wide trim, it’s far more popular to coordinate your gutter color with the trim color. In contrast, homes with no trim or slim trim are better suited to gutters that match their roofing color. 
  3. Contrast your gutter color to that of all exterior colors. Some homes have roofing, siding and trim colors that are all neutral. And if your home has little design to it, that might mean that it’s fairly plain. Choosing a contrasting gutter color can help bring some life to the exterior of your home without paying to upgrade your roofing or siding before the materials have served their usefulness. Light-colored homes can benefit from darker gutters to bring dimension to a home while avoiding a monochrome look. It’s not as popular to choose this gutter color selection, but on some homes, it really works.
  4. Creating a contrasting look using natural copper gutters. Copper gutters don’t get painted to match other colors on your home. Instead, they make a stunning addition to some homes’ styles in their natural appearance. Copper gutters do not corrode but over time, they might take on a green appearance. Once this happens, you don’t have to worry about the performance of the gutter though.

Allow the Professionals to Do It

Some color selections are available in aluminum and others are available in steel. Both metals are fine selections for your home and will offer incredible durability.

Vinyl Vs. Aluminum Gutters

Gutters protect your home from water damage and can help keep water from eroding the foundation of your home. All gutters are not equal though. When evaluating what gutters to install on your home, you have two main material options: vinyl or aluminum. 

Aluminum gutters are made of lightweight metal whereas vinyl gutters are lightweight plastic. Another term that is often used for vinyl gutters is PVC or plastic. These gutters often come in various pieces and snap together. Because of their assembly style, vinyl gutters are more popular for do-it-yourself projects. 

The top factors in selecting between vinyl and aluminum gutters include the following.

  • Ease of installation: vinyl gutters are far easier to install yourself than aluminum.
  • Performance: aluminum gutters do a better job standing up to heavy rain and wind. Vinyl gutters can crack or sag under the weight and demands of poor weather, which Washington homes see a great deal of. And because vinyl gutters come in pieces that you assemble, they are far more likely to leak and cause problems than aluminum gutters.
  • Durability: aluminum gutters are far more durable than vinyl. While they carry some mild risk of rust, these materials will rarely cause problems and they can last 20 or more years without any issues, even in the most demanding climates.
  • Initial cost: vinyl gutters are more affordable to install. But that doesn’t mean they are the less expensive option long-term. Because aluminum lasts longer, the total cost of ownership is less expensive than vinyl gutters. 
  • Design: aluminum gutters feature a superior design to vinyl since they provide a seamless appearance.
  • Eco-friendly: the option that is nicer to the earth is the aluminum gutter because it can be recycled. Vinyl cannot be recycled and is more harmful to the environment to make.

Should Gutters Match Roof or House?

It’s completely up to you whether you want your gutters to match your roof or your house. It’s best to choose a color that coordinates with either your trim or your roof to avoid making your gutters stand out awkwardly. Only in rare cases is it a good idea to contrast the color of your home’s roofing or siding.

Should Gutters and Downspouts Be the Same Color?

Yes, gutters and downspouts should be the same color to create a continuous look. Otherwise, you’ll end up with visual breaks that could impact the curb appeal of your home. 

Do Colored Gutters Cost More?

Sometimes getting a certain color for your gutters can cost more. Generally, you can find common colors, such as whites and earth tones for the same price. In some cases, premium colors will cost slightly more, but the price difference is nominal and will cost far less than changing the color of your trim or roofing.
