Seamless Gutters: What are They and How Do They Benefit Your Home?

Seamless gutters are rain gutters created (sometimes onsite) with a gutter machine mounted to a service truck. When searching for the best material for your new gutter system, there are many different options to choose from, with some of the most common materials being vinyl, steel and aluminum – but we can tell you from vast experience that aluminum gutter systems are ideal for complementing your home.

In fact, this is why they are considered the most popular type of gutter, making up nearly 80-percent of all gutters installed in the U.S. Why is this? It can be attributed to the fact that they are incredibly flexible and reliable, in addition to a plethora of other benefits.

Let’s now take a closer look at some of these.

  • They Hold More Water – When it comes to gutters, nothing is really more important than their ability to hold water, and one of the biggest benefits of aluminum types is that they are able to hold more H2O than other variants (something especially important during downpours).
  • They are Lightweight – Not only are they easier to install than those made with heavy materials, gutters made of aluminum also tend to sag less.
  • They are Durable and Long-Lasting – Aluminum gutters stand up to snow and hail quite effectively, all while resisting thinning over time. We’ve seen seamless examples last homeowners 20 years or more.
  • The Seamless Factor Itself – A whopping 70-percent of homeowners opt for gutters that are seamless, and, as we have been alluding to, aluminum works great for such types. These are a popular choice amongst homeowners because they, as their namesake suggests, have no seams – this means no leaks.

How does this all protect your home? By going with seamless aluminum gutters, you are ensuring that water is effectively and safely carried away from your property. If your gutter system has leaks, water could spill down the side of the home, creating a number of issues like foundation damage, soffit/fascia rot, basement flooding and mold/mildew growth.
