Your gutters form part of your roofing system’s first line of defense against the elements. By diverting rainwater away from your roof, the gutter system protects it from moisture damage. Of course, not all kinds of gutters can provide the same level of protection. In general, seamless gutters can offer more protection than conventional gutters because they’re less likely to suffer leaks.
Fewer Maintenance Needs
Gutter cleaning is a must if you want to keep your gutters in good condition. If leaves, twigs and other organic debris accumulate inside your gutters, rainwater might start to overflow and spill onto parts of your roof and exterior. And, under the combined weight of accumulated debris and stagnant rainwater, sections of your gutters might start to pull apart.
The joints or area where gutter sections meet are a weak point of traditional gutters systems and the part where leaks usually form. Since seamless gutters, as the name suggests, don’t have any gutter joints, they’re less susceptible to leaks. By installing more durable seamless gutters, you can save on gutter and roof repair costs.
Greater Aesthetic Appeal
The seams in a conventional gutter system and its fasteners can disrupt your exterior’s design. Since seamless gutters lack these seams, have a more streamlined design and come in a wide variety of colors and materials, they’re less likely to interfere with your facade’s design.
Ease of Installation
The assembly of your gutter system is the most time-consuming part of the installation process. Contractors have to measure, fit and attach gutter sections. Since seamless gutters are custom-made to fit your roof’s dimensions, they’re easier – and faster – to install. To make sure they’re installed properly, make sure only experienced roofing contractors handle their installation.
