What are Seamless Gutters?
Seamless gutters are gutters made from a continuous piece of material. Unlike sectional gutters, which are assembled and attached in pieces, seamless gutters are installed as one solid piece. They are usually delivered on a roll at the site and then shaped according to a contractor’s instructions when installed.
Seamless gutters can make a big difference for your home. Let’s take a look at some of the unique benefits of seamless gutters over sectional gutters.
5 Benefits of Seamless Gutters
If you’re looking for the best gutter option for your home, you have to go seamless. Some of the benefits of seamless gutters are that they don’t leak or clog, and are longer lasting, more effective, and better looking than other gutter types.
Sectional gutters have small spaces where water can start to leak. Over time, these leaks widen into holes, and holes will cause your gutters to rust or break. Seamless gutters lack the spaces where water can get through, preventing leaks from happening.
Seamless gutters have fewer points where debris can build up, so there’s a reduced frequency of clogs, meaning you likely won’t need to clean them as often. Sectional gutters, on the other hand, require continual maintenance. You will need to check them regularly for clogs and leaks, and each connection will need to be inspected for signs of holes or breaks — which do happen, and happen often.
Seamless gutters are designed to fit your unique home, with custom materials installed in custom lengths. This perfect fit means your gutters will be high performing and efficient for your specific home’s needs. A contractor will design the ideal seamless gutter system to build the best defense against potential water damage.
Joints, seams, and other weak points are areas where the gutters start to degrade the fastest, due to debris buildup, water erosion, or other environmental factors. With seamless gutters, these weak points are eliminated, so you end up with gutters that will last longer and continue to maintain their quality year after year.
Worn seams and rust are an eyesore, so many homeowners prefer the look of seamless gutters on their home. Not only do they maintain their quality for longer, but they appear more uniform and blend with your home’s design.
Types of Seamless Gutters
Many gutter types are available in seamless options. From the more cost effective aluminum to the more luxurious and beautiful copper, these are some of the most common materials available for seamless gutters:
- Galvanized Steel
- Stainless Steel
To Seam or Not to Seam?
When it comes down to choosing between sectional vs. seamless gutters, the benefits of seamless gutters far outweigh those of sectional gutters. Seamless gutters offer a longer lasting, more effective gutter option for your home. The added cost to have a custom seamless gutter system installed on your home is worth it for the added protection seamless gutters can offer.
While you might be able to save a few dollars by installing sectional gutters yourself, you’ll likely end up needing to spend time cleaning and maintaining them, as well as replace them more often due to leaks or failure. In the end, your investment in seamless gutters will pay off for you and your home.
