A seamless gutter is something that has evolved from a traditional gutter system.
Old gutter systems consist of multiple pieces, that are fastened together. Over time and wear, traditional gutter systems can start to leak at the seams. Now introducing the seamless gutter system, which are just that, seamless. They are all one piece which reduces the possibility of leaking.
Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum but can be made from copper or vinyl. They also come in multiple colors so you can choose the best look for your home. The obvious benefits to a seamless gutter is the reduced chance of leaks and build up. Traditional gutter systems have less of a lifespan than seamless gutters. Build-up of debris in the gutter creates weight on the seam and eventually wears them down. Now there is a leak, most likely with debris stuck In between the seam. This hinders the water flow, so water can now get trapped. Water that gets trapped between the gutter and the roof can cause mold. Mold obviously creates damage.
Seamless gutters are measured to fit your home, so every gutter is custom. Seamless gutters also reduce the cost of maintenance and add value to your property. They are also more aesthetically pleasing since they don’t have all the joints and fasteners of traditional gutters.
Even though seamless gutters are slightly more expensive they often come with lifetime warranties. It’s an investment that will prove valuable in the long run.
