Where did wood gutters originate?
Wood gutters were once the most popular gutter material, over a hundred years ago. These gutters can be found on Victorian and Antique Colonial style homes, for example, and they played an integral part in the classic features these homes had to offer.
As the cost to produce other materials decreased, and as production rates increased, wood gutters gradually fell out of favor. However, they are still crucial for the upkeep of these historical homes, and many homeowners seeking this aesthetic will build homes in these styles today.
Benefits of wood gutters
It’s no secret that wood and water don’t always mix, but some kinds of wood gutters are better able to withstand moisture and decay than others. Cedar, for example, is a hardier material that can better bear the brunt of the elements. Wood gutters can also be treated to provide the durability you need to protect your investment.
Your GF Sprague gutter expert will help you determine which gutters are best for your home, based on a variety of factors – including the material. You don’t have to worry when you choose GF Sprague!
Wood Gutter Benefits
- Appealing: Wood gutters give charm and traditional character to a home. Often used to create the crown molding of a building’s cornice, wood gutters offer a traditional, unique look that has been lost with the advent of mass-produced gutters.
- Effective: Wood gutters, when installed by a professional and properly maintained, are capable of proper water management just like other kinds of gutters.
