Seamless Rain Gutters
What are Seamless Rain Gutters? We hear this question very often. How are seamless gutters better than other types of gutters? Gutters were originally sold by sections and pieces. This allowed homeowners to purchase the pieces necessary to fit their homes. Eventually, a new gutter system was invented. The seamless gutter system. Instead of building a gutter system out of numerous pieces, now one piece of aluminum was able to be molded into one single gutter piece.
What are the benefits of choosing seamless gutters over sectional gutters? Seamless gutters are superior because of the fact that they effectively minimize leaks. Sectional gutters with ample sealant can start to wear away, within time this will allow water to scape from the gutter system. They also form ridges in the seams at the bottom of the gutter, this backs up water and gives debris the opportunity to start building up and will eventually end up clogging the gutter. Seamless gutters avoid this problem and it makes them a lot easier to clean.
Seamless gutters are much simpler to maintain due to their long sections. The only connecting points are at the corners and at the downspouts. Seamles gutter systems cost more than sectional systems. But the benefits outweights the cost. Now, unless you plan on purchasing a $20,000 machine, you will need to hire a gutter technician to properly install your seamless gutter system.
