Are you thinking about of replacing the worn out gutters on your house? You should look at the possibility of a seamless gutter installation. There are rewards to installing a seamless gutter system that you should consider before you choose to install or repair a more traditional gutter system. A seamless gutter system functions well no matter what the pitch or slope of your roof.
The biggest advantage of a seamless gutter is that there are no breaks in the gutters; therefore you will have no leaks because of the lack of joints. With traditional gutter systems, the gutter comes in several different pieces and they have to be joined together, leaving those places open for leaks and drips. Seamless gutters are extruded as one piece; therefore there is a greatly reduced chance of water damage to your home.
Seamless gutters can be made from copper, aluminum, or galvanized steel. These gutters are cut to the exact proper length onsite so you don’t have to worry whether they will fit your home or not. Like traditional guttering, you can get the seamless gutter in a variety of different colors and styles to match or compliment your home.
The one disadvantage to these gutters is that, because they are cut to length onsite, they have to be manufactured by a professional onsite. This will of course increase the investment you put into your gutters to a higher price point. Many people feel the added protection that these gutters give them is worth a little extra out of pocket expense. If money is truly an issue, a very few companies will form gutters on site, then let you install them.
Having done this research at home allows you to be a more informed consumer, and have the ability to ask proper questions of your contractor.
