Hi,

Looking for some expert advice on which Gutter type is the best for health reasons

Aluminum Gutters
Copper Gutters
Steel Gutters
Vinyl Plastic Gutters (cons: can contain BPA)
Wood Gutters


(Any of the heavy metal ones can cause Alzheimer's disease)

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You
Shahram

Copper with lead-free solder. But $$$$

It is a much smaller problem than the roofing material itself. What are you using there? Choose something to match. If you are using galvanized steel roofing, use steel for example.

Thanks Scott

I want to eventually replace the shingles on my roof with a better safer material.
