How to Paint Gutters
Painting gutters is a common practice for many homeowners and provides a pleasant curb appeal to any home. It’s important to keep your gutters looking good, and choosing a high-quality, waterproof paint can help you do just that. Below, we’ll walk you through the process of how to properly paint your gutters to ensure that your paint job lasts for years to come.
1. Preparing Your Gutters for the Painting Process
2. Apply a High-Quality Primer
3. Apply an Enamel Paint
While enamel paint isn’t strictly necessary, it’s always a good idea to apply an enamel paint which is a heavier material than regular paint to help prevent rust and erosion of your gutter. It’s important to keep in mind that enamel paint is different than painted enamel.
4. Apply Your Paint
If you decide in the future that you want to paint your gutter system again, it’s important to strip the paint completely from your gutter and start from a blank canvas.
