Many are often surprised to see just how many colours there are available for aluminum eavestrough and soffits. Colour selection is very important if you are trying to match up to existing trim or soffits on your home. Also having a wide color selection is essential when matching up to any new windows etc.
In our opinion, most of the suppliers quality in terms of paint finish are similar and we have never had a problem with any of the suppliers. All come with a standard 20 year prorated manufacturer’s warranty against peeling etc.
Many colours will be very similar from one supplier to another.
Our primary aluminum supplier is Buchner Manufacturing with warehouses in Pefferlaw, Newmarket and Kingston. They are a favourite for companies that specialize in eavestroughs as they have a wide availability of colors, sizes of pipes and extra heavy, custom ordered soffits and eavestroughs. Their fan fold has 40 colours. All of their colors are considered a semi-gloss finish.

Another supplier called Royal Building Products is located at 400 and Hwy 7, north of Toronto. They have about 22 colours. A very large outfit which also specializes in windows and doors etc.
Colours are all flat in terms of gloss.

It’s important to note that comparing the thickness of each of these fan folds will not give an accurate representation of what thickness each company uses for eavestrough or soffits etc. Some companies make their fan folds out of thin metal and others out of thick.
