Unlike sectional gutters, seamless gutters are installed in a single piece that’s customized to fit the dimensions of your roof. When installed correctly and maintained properly, seamless gutters can last for decades. They’re also available in various materials, styles, and colors.
In today’s post, a roof repair expert shares questions to ask your contractor before the installation of your seamless gutters.
What Are My Options?
Gutters are available in a wide range of colors to complement any home. Some of the most common seamless gutter materials include aluminum, copper, stainless steel and zinc. Aluminum doesn’t rust and is lightweight, making it easy to install. It’s also cost-effective and eco-friendly option since it can be recycled after use. Copper and stainless steel are also durable materials, while zinc is rust-proof and sustainable.
What Are the Benefits of Seamless Gutters
Compared to sectional gutters, seamless gutters have fewer areas where fallen leaves, branches and other debris can accumulate and cause clogs. Keep in mind that clogged gutters can cause water to overflow to your siding and back up to the roof. With seamless gutters, you can avoid major home exterior and roof repair costs.
What to Expect During the Installation
Gutter installers will produce your new gutters onsite using a special machine. They will make sure that the gutters fit perfectly. After the gutters are formed, the contractor will carry them up to the roofline using a ladder. They will then secure the gutters, so expect drill and hammering noises. The installation should be completed in just a few hours.
