How Seamless Gutters Prevent Water LeaksOctober 29, 2018
Traditional gutters are sectional, which means they composed of individual pieces fused together with seams. Unfortunately, these seams create a vulnerability that makes sectional gutters susceptible to water damage. As a more weather-resistant alternative, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, a gutter installation company, offers seamless gutters. Read on to learn why seamless gutters are more reliable than sectional ones.
Prevents Roof Damage
Sectional gutters are prone to clogging because debris tends to get stuck between the segments. As leaves, twigs and other foreign materials build up, water settles in the gutters. The weight of the debris plus the weight of the trapped water can eventually cause the gutter system to sag and even break. You can avoid this problem by investing in high-quality seamless gutters. They are formed from a single piece of metal, which means you won’t have to worry about the sections causing debris accumulation in your gutters.
Keeps Water Away From Your Home’s Foundation
Seamless gutters are less susceptible to leaking than traditional gutter systems. Water will flow smoothly to the downspout and away from your home’s foundation.
Protects Siding From Water Damage
Water dripping through the gaps of your gutters can damage your siding. For wood siding, gutter leaks can cause the material to rot. Water can also leave stains on vinyl siding and bricks, which can compromise curb appeal.
Reasons to Install Gutter Covers on Seamless Gutters
Installing seamless gutters isn’t always enough to eliminate leaks. You may also want to invest in gutter covers to protect your gutters from the elements. Gutter Helmet is an innovative gutter protection system that utilizes the principle of surface tension to ensure a clog-free gutter system.
