Gutters may be a comparatively small part of your home’s exterior, yet they protect your home from potential disasters caused by unrouted rainwater. Traditional sectional gutters are fine, but if you want the best for your home, invest in seamless gutters. Exterior Source shares the reasons why:
Fewer Seams Mean Fewer Chances of Leaks
The problem with traditional sectional gutters is that they have seams since they are made in sections. The more seams the gutter has, the more prone it will be to forming leaks. Seamless gutters are less likely to form leaks since there are no overlaps that require sealants. Every gutter length is custom-cut on-site to match the length of the roof edge. Rainwater is efficiently routed to the downspouts, no matter how heavy the downpour is.
They Need Much Less Maintenance
Another problem with sectional gutters is that the seams require sealant, which deteriorates over a short period. This means that you will have to frequently check the gutters and spend money on reapplying sealant to these areas, maybe even risking injury while doing it. These seams are also more prone to wind damage, which makes you more likely to seek gutter repair.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, require absolutely no sealant, and therefore, less maintenance. No matter how strong the rainfall is, seamless gutters can handle it, without worry of seams breaking apart. When LeafGuard, the only seamless, one-piece covered gutter system, leaves and debris just fall to the ground. Also, clean gutters are less likely to push rainwater back up to the roof or contribute to ice dams.
They Simply Look Beautiful
Seamless gutters look like decorative roof molding which creates a clean and uniform look. Our seamless gutter systems are installed without driving nails or screws onto the roof fascia. In addition to preventing potential damage to the roof edge caused by nail punctures, they also prevent streaks caused by rusted nail heads. Our ScratchGuard paint finish stays beautiful and is warranted not to chip, peel or crack.
