A lot of homeowners are ditching traditional, seamed gutters and opting for one of the newer innovations to sweep across the home improvement world. Seamless gutters have become popular in recent years, but is their popularity justified by true quality? Let’s find out.
What are Seamless Rain Gutters?
Seamless rain gutters are structurally similar to regular gutters, however, there’s one difference. While regular gutters connect at a “seams” at various points along the home, seamless gutters do not. A seamless gutter serves as a continuous chute, transporting rooftop rainwater down to a runoff area without the opportunity for leakage at the seams.
The Benefits of Going Seamless
Where quality is considered, seamless gutters are generally stronger than normal gutters. Because they don’t have seams, they’re less likely to split under pressure. They’re also less prone to mold and mildew, which typically corrode a traditional gutter’s seam line.
Seamless gutters are crafted from the same materials as normal gutters. This said, they’re installed as single pieces; each piece is altered, on-site, with a specialized machine which processes the gutter’s material. You’ll need a professional’s help for a seamless gutter installation—but it’s well worth the extra time spent.
Making the Switch to Seamless Gutters
Seamless gutters are a little pricier than traditional gutters—but the small price increase is justified. Seamless gutters are, by design, made to require less maintenance. They last longer than traditional gutters, too, as they’re less prone to leaks, critical dents, splits, and corrosion.
The right gutter system for your home might not be obvious at first. Between initial costs, overall cost efficiency, and your home’s particular needs, both traditional gutters and seamless gutters are great options. Seamless gutters may benefit your home, however, if you’re looking for something a little more “hands off.” They’re also a wonderful option for siding preservation and leak prevention.
It’s never a bad idea to ask for guidance when deciding on a new home addition. Because seamless gutters need to be installed by a provider, it’s even more important to weigh the costs and benefits of a seamless gutter installation.
