WHAT ARE SEAMLESS GUTTERS?
Originally, aluminum guttering was done by connecting multiple pieces. As you move along you would apply sealant to each adjacent section. This would secure the gutters completely together from the inside to not leak water. This method was good but had a lot of flaws when talking about efficiency. Due to there being so many pieces that needed to be strung together, the demand for materials naturally increased as well. It wasn’t cost effective and each seam had a chance for error. They are notorious for causing dams and leaf build up. Each one needs to have the proper amount of sealant applied to last throughout the years.
More seams simply mean more opportunities for problems. People eventually realized this and a new system was born. Seamless Gutters are the answer to all the worries people had towards the old way of aluminum guttering. Aside from connecting the corners and end caps together, these gutters literally are seamless. It’s a high-quality aluminum metal constructed into a smooth long seamless gutter. They are just one piece per section which allows for optimal water flow. They need a downspout hole cut out and a cap applied to it which requires sealant. Other then that MUST HAVE step the gutter system solves every problem the old gutter system encountered.
BENEFITS OF SEAMLESS GUTTERS OVER STANDARD GUTTERS
Both seamless and standard gutters keep snow and water away from home's roof and foundation, but standard gutters have their limitations. Standard gutters often are filled with leave and debris, which if not removed immediately can lead to compost piles growing in the gutters. Seamless gutters minimize this effects and reduce the amount of blockage you gutters can have.
Seamless gutters are much easier to clean than their standard counterpart and requires less maintenance. Standard gutters come in separate pieces that need to be placed together, but seamless gutters are formed from one continuous roll, which is cut onsite to specifications of the host to guarantee a perfect fit.
