When people think about gutters, they don’t realize that there are many different types. While they all have the same primary focus—channeling rainwater away from the foundation of your home—there are acute advantages to seamless gutters.
We’ve been in the business long enough to have replaced many standard gutter systems that just weren’t cutting it for homeowners. Standard gutters may have ruled the industry for years, but even the abacus was once considered the height of mathematical computing. It’s a new era, and it’s time for a new king.
Seamless gutters overcome the issues that have plagued standard gutter systems since their inception. Installing a seamless gutter system is the only way to truly protect your home from water damage without ruining its aesthetic charm.
The Problems with Standard Gutters
Standard gutters come in sections, and each section must be installed individually. This is a time consuming process because installers have to make certain every part of your gutter system connects like it should. If you don’t get all of the connectors snapped into place just right, or if one piece of gutter isn’t even with its neighbors, it can lead to leaks and other issues.
You also have to make sure you get all of your end caps, corners, and downspouts installed correctly. Even when installed by professionals, there are many places where leaks can occur over time. Sections of the gutter can also begin to sag or come loose, letting water escape into places you don’t want it to be.
The Solutions Offered By Seamless Gutters
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, don’t have these issues because they are structurally designed to prevent leaks from occurring. Every seamless gutter is custom-made to fit the side of the house or building. These pieces are only connected at the corners, so there are fewer places where leaks can occur.
Seamless gutters are the most popular type of gutter and are rapidly becoming the industry standard for home and business owners alike. There are two main types of seamless gutters.
The 5” gutter system is generally the best fit for most residences. These custom fit gutters are made out of 97 percent recycled aluminum and are bracketed every two feet. Miters are used for the corners to enhance the structural integrity of the system and high-volume downspouts are attached via factory cut outs, all of which are efficiently routed away from the foundation.
The 6” gutter system is usually reserved for commercial buildings, strip malls, and residences with large square footage of roof surface. These powerhouse gutters are designed to handle a high volume of rain all year round.
Whether you are a home or business owner, seamless gutters are the clear choice. They are highly resistant to rust and still offer the same durability as heavier steel gutters.
