The Best Gutter System For Your Home

While there are many components that work together to ensure your roof’s optimal functioning, flat roofing is only as good as the gutters supporting them. The importance of quality, professionally installed gutters cannot be overstated. They are vital for enhancing smooth water run-off, thereby preventing any accumulation of moisture and debris on the roof’s surface, which is often the beginning of more serious commercial roofing problems.

Using a variety of materials from premier manufacturers in the industry, Whalen Contracting installs gutters that fit your home’s needs. Our installation process is quick and seamless, while the products we use provide weather protection and incredible durability – which is essential in a place like Pittsburgh.

Types Of Gutters We Install

With a plethora of Pittsburgh gutter installation options available, our professional staff is here to guide you through the various sizes, styles, and benefits of each kind. Below, you’ll find some of our most popular gutter systems:


One of the best gutter options for adding a visually appealing style to your home. The craftsmanship of copper gutters is second to none and the material naturally ages well. Copper gutters tend to be pricey compared to other options, but they’re long-lasting, durable, and will never rust.


As the name suggests, seamless gutters have no seams whatsoever, which is one of the main factors causing leaks in gutters. The lack of seams then means that it is impossible for seamless gutters to leak. This makes it a great, worry-free option, however, the downside is that should a fault occur, the whole gutter system would need to be replaced.


Aluminum gutters are easily the most popular gutter type in Pittsburgh and even the rest of the country. It is definitely one of the most requested types with Whalen Contracting clients. That’s for good reason as they hold more water, are lightweight and extremely durable, and therefore long-lasting too.


Equally as durable as aluminum, steel gutters are also a great option for your home’s gutter system. They are better at resisting dents and are super resistant to rust. For these extra benefits though, will come at a higher cost than most other gutter types.


Vinyl gutters offer great value for money as it is one of the most cost-effective options on the market. They’re also lightweight and easy to install. However, being made of PVC plastic, they’re more susceptible to quicker damage in inclement weather.
