So, here's why you might want to think about buying seamless gutters for your house
It’s pouring rain, and your old gutters are broken, leaking, and boring. When your sectional gutters are no longer doing the job, it’s time to think about getting seamless gutters. These are made of long pieces of steel, aluminum, or similar material that are bent into the shape of your roof and installed as one piece. Professionals measure and shape them to the exact lengths your home needs. They are better than sectional gutters, which are made of small pieces that are put together at different lengths and sealed.
Here are some of the reasons why seamless gutters are the best way to get rid of rainwater.
With no cracks to worry about, seamless gutters are less likely to spring a leak. The seams in sectional systems are closed off by sealant, gaskets, or welding. Also, you have to deal with more seams the more sections of gutters you need. No matter how much sealant you use, it will almost certainly wear away over time. Seamless gutters have a smooth surface that makes it easy for water to flow away from your roof. That means there can’t be drips of water that slowly wear away the soil around your plants or next to the house.
If there are fewer breaks in the gutters, less trash from nature will get stuck in the troughs. During heavy rain and wind, leaves, twigs, acorns, and other things that fall from nearby trees tend to get stuck in sectional gutters. Only the corners and downspouts of seamless gutters are joined together. So, there are fewer places for trash to get stuck, which means there are fewer blockages that cause water to back up and cause bigger problems.
Easy to take care of
One of the best things about seamless gutters is that they don’t need much maintenance. If there are fewer leaks and less junk in the gutters, you will spend less time on a ladder cleaning them out. Plus, seamless gutters are usually made of metals that are stronger and less likely to crack or break than aluminum or vinyl sectional gutters. Cheap aluminum gutters tend to rot, which makes the metal look bad with holes and rust spots. Even though you should still clean your gutters once a year and check them often, you are sure to spend less time making repairs.
Appealing to the eye
Seamless gutters give your roofline a more uniform look and help them blend in with the rest of the building. The single piece of gutter nearly blends in with the rest of the house. Also, since seamless gutters are usually of higher quality, there are more colors to choose from and they rarely need a new coat of paint. It is best to have a professional do the job, but a do-it-yourself installation of sectional gutters will look better and last longer. Also, less stuff will get stuck in the trough, so you won’t have leaves, nests, and sticks sticking out of the sides.
