Zinc Gutters are a great choice when selecting a gutter system. Here are four reasons to choose them:
Zinc’s physical properties make it a great choice when you want gutters that last. When zinc comes in contact with moisture and carbon dioxide, it forms a zinc-carbonate layer. With this property, zinc is known to last nearly a lifetime. As the patina develops, it also covers imperfections or scratches.
Unlike copper, zinc comes in many colors. Through our partner VMZINC, there are several different colors to choose from. You can see those here. With this wide selection, you can find a zinc to match any house exterior.
In comparison to copper gutters, zinc gutters are much less costly. Though they might not last quite as long as copper gutters, they are still superior in endurance when compared to most other metal gutters.
Zinc is completely recyclable. It is also a fungistat, which means it prohibits the reproduction of fungus, mold, and mildew. It’s presence helps reduce the risk of such pesky intruders. A fungistat is not a fungicide, which kills fungus. This means that zinc is safe to use around vegetation and will not irritate the growth of plants.
