Before calling a gutter and roofing company to install a new gutter system on your home, it’s best to choose between sectional and seamless gutters first to get the ball rolling.
Many homeowners choose sectional gutters, also known as seamed gutters; that’s why these are the conventional gutters you often see on houses. They cost less to buy and install. A homeowner with some DIY experience might be able to install sectional gutters.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, are not meant for DIY work. They require a specialized machine operated by an experienced contractor. They also cost more than sectional gutters. However, before deciding that sectional gutters are the more cost-effective option, you should consider the benefits of seamless gutters that you won’t get from their seamed counterparts.
Seamless Gutters Fit Perfectly
Your roof repair and gutter installation contractors will bring the specialized machine along with your new gutters when they arrive to do the job. The machine helps them cut and bend the gutters onsite so your gutters will neatly fit your roofline without any problems. The result is a perfectly fitted gutter system that’s tailored to your home’s exact measurements. You’ll see the difference at once.
Seamless Gutters Are Low Maintenance
With fewer joints, seamless gutters don’t usually have problems with debris accumulation. Water flows freely along through the downspouts, bringing debris with it. This means you don’t have to spend too much time cleaning or declogging your gutters, and the likelihood of debris buildup is very low.
Seamless Gutters Are Not Prone to Leaking
Thanks to fewer joints, your gutters don’t have many areas where leaks might form. With sectional gutters, the joints are always at risk of widening and loosening from each other, forming leaks. Such leaks also often lead to rusting, which shortens the life of the material.
Seamless Gutters Are Simply More Attractive
Beauty and appeal are strong selling points for seamless gutters. With the absence of joints and sharp corners and the tailor-made appearance, seamless gutters look timeless, adding to your home’s curb appeal. You can choose to install gutters that can be painted a color that matches your home’s aesthetic or get ones with a baked-on finish. For more curb appeal, get copper seamless gutters that only get prettier over time.
