I live in a cold climate with snow in the winter and wind of course, it is Wyoming. The wind on average can be 20 mph during winter / spring and can gust up to 35mph with a severe storm. I have spoken with a contractor that handles steel and another contractor that handles aluminum gutters. The contractor that handles steel gutters costs considerably more that the aluminum contractor. I am willing to go with the aluminum gutters If they can stand most snow, ice and wind that I am going to encounter. Plus I am not excited about having my gutters begin to rust in five years. Any recommendation.
