Understanding Seamless Gutters
While you might not always notice the gutters on your home, they are one of your property’s hardest-working and important systems. Gutters redirect water as it flows off your roof during storms so the water doesn’t flow over your roof and pool at the base of your home. By doing this, gutters can protect your landscaping, siding, and foundation from damage. They can also prevent puddles, dangerous ice patches, flooding, and leaks by directing water to where you want it to go.
Today, homeowners have more gutter options than ever before. One of the most innovative solutions is the seamless gutter, which professionals make at your property to ensure they fit your home precisely. Seamless gutters offer aesthetic benefits and superior protection by eliminating the gaps and imprecision of factory-made models.
How Seamless Gutters Are Made
Seamless gutters are manufactured differently from modular or factory-produced gutters. Seamless gutters are made from coils of metal, usually aluminum. When you order your seamless gutters, you select a color to match your property. Experienced technicians then confirm your home’s exact measurements, including the roof area and pitch, needed for your gutters.
Your materials arrive with a gutter machine, which is sometimes called a forming machine and folds the metal into a k-style shape. The machine runs as long as needed to equip your home with a fitting gutter without creating a seam. As the gutter comes out of the machine, technicians cut downspout holes and seal them so downspouts can be easily attached.
Once the gutter machine finishes forming the gutter into the correct shape and length, we cut the new gutter and take care of the installation. We’ll install support brackets if needed and mount the system to the eaves.
Hidden hangers are common recommendations. We attach hangers to the fascia with screws and slide the gutters onto the hangers. The benefit of this installation technique is that the point where the gutters attach is less visible, creating a smooth look. This method is best for structural integrity, too.
We add endcaps to keep water from flowing out of the ends and add any joints needed for where your roof curves around the house. Our team will also attach the downspout so it can move water away from your home. If you want them, technicians can install screens on your gutters to keep debris out. They will then check their work and clean up, leaving you with beautiful, custom gutters. The process is usually done in about a day.
The Benefits of Seamless Gutters
Seamless gutters are designed specifically for your home and fit perfectly, which has several benefits.
Fewer Leaks and Buckling
Every seam on a traditional gutter is a point of weakness where leaks can happen and the gutter system can fail in bad weather.
Making your gutters into a single piece that contours to your house leaves no gaps where water can get in or no ill-fitting sections that buckle. There are also fewer joints on seamless gutters, greatly reducing the leaks that could harm your siding, windows, foundation, landscaping, and property. Seamless gutters’ unique construction also makes them sturdier, helping them hold up against the elements.
Low Maintenance Requirements
Fewer seams can also mean less maintenance and fewer repairs. Seamless gutters have fewer obstacles to water flow, allowing rain to move away from your home easily. These systems offer fewer places where debris can get stuck and see less clogging.
Easy Installation and Improved Curb Appeal
Installing seamless gutters can be faster than fitting and hanging sectioned ones. The gutters are custom-made for your home, so you can choose the best color for the most attractive look. The results are smooth, even lines that flow nicely with your roof’s slope. Even if your home features historical architecture or has an unusual shape or size, our team can create seamless gutters that fit its dimensions perfectly.
