When looking for gutters for your property you can either go for old seamed gutters or modern seamless gutters. The only significant difference is that the latter consists of a single piece of material that’s installed as a single piece while seamed(sectional) gutters are made of smaller sections of joined gutter. Seamed gutters are constructed using a specialized gutter machine. While sectional gutters are less expensive, there are several benefits of seamless gutters that outweigh their increased cost.
Benefits of Seamless Gutters
Because seamless gutters are custom fit for each unique property, they’re guaranteed a perfect fit. Rather than installing gutters piece by piece, contractors lay seamless gutters as a continuous section of material. With no connections at each corner of the roof, seamless gutters are more efficient at creating a continuous path for water to flow away from your roof and structure without minimal risk of leakages or blockages.
Better Rate of Return
Seamless gutters may have higher initial costs than seamed gutters, but their low repair and maintenance costs offer a higher return on investment. As such, your seamless gutters will pay for themselves over time. Whenever a gutter has a joint where two sections meet, there’s a higher risk of leakage problems. Over time, joints widen from each other forming holes. Rust can also begin to form. Seamless gutters have fewer joints and as a result, less prone to leaks and rust.
Because seamless gutters have fewer joints, they’re less likely to accumulate dirt and debris as seamed gutters do. They make the buildup of twigs, leaves and other debris much less likely. They’re also less likely to attract bugs that love hiding in accumulated dirt and debris. Overall, this leads to much less time maintaining and cleaning your gutter.
One of the most significant benefits of seamless gutters is their aesthetic appeal. Many find them more visually appealing than sectional gutters as there are no unsightly seams, offering a more streamlined sophisticated look. They’re often made from aluminum but can also be constructed from steel and copper. You can have your seamless gutters painted to match your home’s exterior or have it in a baked-on enamel finish that will last for years without needing paint.
