If you’ve been looking for a new gutter system for your home, you may have heard a bit about seamless gutters. These differ from standard sectional gutters in that they are made of and installed as a single piece of aluminum. The only joints that are present in seamless gutters are on any areas around the corners. Seamless gutters have a number of advantages over their sectional counterparts that make them a good choice for many homes. Here are those benefits.
Fewer Maintenance Demands
Sectional gutters with joints are often prone to the accumulation of various debris over the years. Even with regular cleaning, leaves and twigs, and even pests and weeds, can make their way into the gutters and the walls and structures around them. Seamless gutters are attached more firmly to the home, reducing the chances of this debris accumulating within them. This makes them much easier to maintain than sectional gutters.
A major potential problem of sectional gutters is leakage. The joints and seals can wear out over time and leak, which can penetrate the exterior of your home and seep into the inside. A seamless gutter system offers better protection of your home due to its relative absence of joints.
All of the joints and fasteners inherent in a sectional gutter system design can make it stand out on your home exterior in a bad way. Seamless gutters blend in more naturally with the rest of your facade, creating curb appeal. They are also available in a wide range of materials and colors to suit your home’s overall aesthetic. And since seamless gutters feature an enamel finish, you won’t need to worry about periodically repainting them to keep them looking beautiful.
Made to Order
A seamless gutter system needs to be specially made according to the unique dimensions of your home. This ensures that no corners are cut in the manufacture and installation of your new gutters, giving your property additional protection for many years to come.
Great Return on Investment
Seamless gutters do cost a little bit more upfront, but they pay for themselves quickly since they need less maintenance and repairs over their lifetime than a sectional gutter system would.
