- Stainless Steel Screws: Stainless steel screws are the most popular type of screws used for gutter installation. They are highly durable and resistant to rust, making them ideal for use in areas with heavy rainfall or harsh weather conditions. Additionally, stainless steel screws can be used with any type of gutter material.
