Leaks in gutters tend to form mostly at the seams, where protection is weakest. Since seamless gutters lack these seams, they are less prone to leaking. Instead of conventional gutters with seams, seamless gutters are carefully measured to fit your house. They do not snap together in sections, made to fit any building. They fit together with a series of interior hooks that you cannot see from the outside. This custom fit also helps to reduce the chance of leaks.
Conventional gutters with seams tend to rot or rust out along their seams because of constant water exposure and leaks. This is especially true with inexpensive aluminum gutters and spouts. Since they wear out faster than seamless gutters, they need replacing more often. In the end, these “inexpensive” aluminum gutters wind up costing you more than seamless gutters.
Seamless gutters do not need painting so they always look nice. Seamless gutters are available in many colors to fit in with the overall design of your home or roof. They also are available in materials like vinyl or standard aluminum with a baked enamel finish.
Installation in One Day
Seamless gutters usually take only one day to install for an average-sized single home. This is less stress for you and ultimately winds up costing you less money because of reduced labor expenses.
Disposes Old Gutters
Many good seamless gutter contractors will not only install new gutters but will dispose of the old gutters for you. This saves you a lot of labor and time. Ask your contractor about disposing of your old gutters. Some contractors may charge a small fee while some may include it as part of their installation expenses. Good contractors will happily explain their policies whenever you ask.
