Why Seamless Gutters Are The Right Choice
One of the best things that you can do for your home is to think long-term when it comes to maintenance. Having quality gutters is the first step to lowering the amount of maintenance you could face in the future. Gutters are made to send water away from your home to prevent erosion and flooding. To help your home remain in great condition for years to come, protect it from potential water damage with seamless gutters.
Seamless gutters are different from sectional gutters because, unlike sectional gutters, they only have seams at jointed points (like at the corners of your house). Because of this, seamless gutters have more benefits.
Here are some of the benefits you can get from seamless gutters:
Experience Fewer Clogs, Leaks and Backups
The joints in sectional gutters require caulking to hold each piece together. The caulking can stick out of the edges of the joints, grabbing onto leaves and other debris that lead to clogs. Once your gutters are clogged, water that can not escape will push through the sectionals and cause leaks. The leakage can cause an overflow of water that could ruin your landscaping.
Requires Less Maintenance
Clogged gutters are time-consuming to clean and can lead to foundation issues or repair work down the road. As your clogged gutters start to grow mold, insects will be attracted to your property. Because seamless gutters do not collect as much debris, you’ll spend less time cleaning your gutters and they can better divert water away from your home for better protection.
More Durable Than Sectional Gutters
The joints on a sectional gutter system are weak points that cause failure. Because seamless gutters have fewer joints, your gutters are less likely to fail due to weak joints. Seamless gutters are long-lasting.
Custom Fitted for Your Home
Most seamless gutters can be painted colors to suit your home. They are measured to fit your home’s exact lengths. When your gutters fit well, they function even better.
Cost-Effective Over Time
Although seamless gutters are slightly higher than sectional gutters, they do not cost more in the long run when you consider maintenance. Seamless gutters are typically 20-30 years which is almost double the life expectancy of sectional gutters.
