Painting Gutters


Having on site extruded gutters installed on my home, the gutters are white and i would like to paint them a bronze color to go with windows. Gutter guy said i would have to roughen the gutters with steel wool or something or paint won't stick? anyone have the best solution for painting gutters?

Painting Gutters


Gutter material comes in many colors, it would likely be more cost effective in the long run to pay the extra now for a bronze color than to try to repaint white gutters.

In fact, I've never heard of a gutter "pro" telling the customer to paint it, unless they are a fly by night outfit.
