Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019
The right gutter color can not only complement the exterior of your home but also highlight certain features.
Many homeowners go with the standard white/off-white factory-finish gutter color for one of two reasons. Some choose white simply because they like how it looks; others go with white because they’re not sure which color to choose. This isn’t to say that white is always the wrong color choice for gutters. It’s all dependent on the type of look you’re going for. Most design experts recommend matching the gutter color to either the roof or the trim. Here is a helpful guide to assist you in deciding on a color for your eaves troughs.
When you should match your gutters to your trim

When NOT to match your gutters to your trim or roof
