Seamless gutters are typically constructed onsite using a specialized gutter machine operated by your gutter contractor to ensure they precisely fit your roofline. Besides being less expensive and easier to install than sectional ones, seamless gutters boast several other benefits:
Benefits of Seamless Gutters
Seamless gutter systems are custom-fit for each property, so you’re guaranteed perfect measurements. Having well-crafted gutters that fit perfectly ensures exceptional performance and functionality over their lifetime.
Seamless gutters have fewer joints, which means fewer areas for debris to collect or leaks to form. Because there’s less accumulation of dirt, they are also less attractive for little critters to burrow into. This means there is less cleaning and maintenance required for a seamless gutter system.
Sectional gutters tend to develop clogs in the joints and seams, which can encourage the buildup of leaves, twigs and other debris. The bigger the blockage, the more unlikely that the system will be able to flush out the debris and water that’s creating the backups.
Sectional gutters have joints where two sections meet — and this is where leaks usually occur. Seamless gutters have fewer joints, reducing the risk of leaks.
Seamless gutters are more aesthetically appealing than sectional gutters. Constructed from aluminum, copper or steel, most can be painted to match the home’s exterior or can sport a long-lasting baked-on enamel finish that requires no painting.
