In general, gutters, siding, doors and porches may have oil- or latex-based paints, but pay attention to the material that gutters or other elements are made of, since oil-based paint tends to work best on aluminum. When painting aluminum gutters, it is imperative to use a transparent acrylic adhesive primer, which is available at any major hardware store.
