The Whole Story:

Wood rain gutters were once a very popular choice, but as of late, they are rarely installed. Although they are still cherished by architectural purists, it can be difficult to find qualified and experienced installers due to their declining popularity. However, wood gutters offer a high-end, distinctive look that vinyl or aluminum cannot compete with. Wood gutters need to be treated regularly to prevent water damage and excessive rot. The installation may be costly due to the weight of the wood.
