There are several things to think about when you get new gutters for your home. One of the biggest decisions to make is whether you want seamless or sectional gutters.
Sectional gutters are installed in sections making for an easy installation process. Seamless gutters are made from one piece of material and installed in a continuous fashion. A specialized machine is used to unroll the gutter material along the edge of the roof.
While they are more expensive to install than their sectional counterparts, they offer several advantages that make them worthwhile in the long run. Here are some to consider.
Seamless gutters are custom fitted to the roof with the most precise measurements. This means they will provide optional functionality when it comes to diverting water away from your home.
Less Debris Build-Up
Unlike sectional, seamless don’t have lips and joints that gather dirt and debris. This means less maintenance for homeowners throughout the year.
Seamless gutters have fewer joints than sectional. This makes them less prone to debris build up, and more attractive.
The joints in a sectional gutter can grow apart over time allowing water to leak through. Seamless gutters have fewer joints resulting in less leakage.
Seamless gutters have a sleek, smooth appearance that can increase the value of your home.
Going up on the roof to clean out debris is time-consuming, unpleasant, and dangerous. With a seamless gutter, it’s unlikely you will ever need to take these rooftop trips keeping you safe and happy.
A sectional gutter has joints that can wear down throughout the years. Seamless gutters have a strong construction that makes them last longer. While most sectional gutters will need to be replaced after 20 years, a seamless gutter can last as long as 30 years.
Seamless gutters come in a wide range of colors. You can choose one that matches or complements your home’s exterior to add to the curb appeal of your property.
Fewer Repair Costs
Because seamless have such a sturdy construction, they will require fewer repairs. This will add up to savings that more than make up for the expense of the initial installation.
Although the installation of a seamless system is not as simple as a sectional installation, it’s still pretty straightforward. A skilled contractor will use a specialized machine to install the material along the perimeter of your roof getting the job done in no time.
