Gutter Talk: Why Seamless Gutters Are A Great Choice For Your Home

Gutters may not seem like a big deal when it comes to home improvement, and they probably are not something you are spending a lot of time thinking about. However, all homes need gutters, and choosing the best gutters for your home is important. Seamless gutters are a great choice for several reasons.

Seamless gutters are durable

It is hard to beat the lasting durability of seamless gutters. Constructed with heavy gauge metal, they are much more durable than less expensive sectioned gutters that are often manufactured with lightweight materials that may crack or break over time. Seamless gutters can also be made with galvanized steel, which is another durable option.

Seamless gutters require less maintenance

Look for seamless gutters with a baked-on enamel finish to eliminate the need to have to repaint the gutters in the future. Unlike seamed gutters, seamless gutters are not susceptible to the wear and tear caused by loss of caulking or the need for welding to repair breaks in seams.

Seamless gutters are customizable

Seamless gutters are custom-made onsite to assure they are a perfect fit for your home. Your home will be carefully measured to get the best fit. Having custom-fit gutters also makes it easy for your contractor to create gutters that can handle large amounts of rain or snow melt if you live in an area with higher precipitation.

Seamless gutters can add to the value of your home

If you plan to sell your home in the future, seamless gutters can increase the value of your home. Seamless gutters are an attractive addition to any home and have the practical value of protecting your home's foundation from moisture and water damage while looking great.

Seamless gutters are less likely to get clogged

No seams in gutters means fewer places for debris to get stuck and cause clogs that can affect the performance of your gutters. When seamed gutters become clogged, water cannot flow freely, which may cause moisture to build up along the roof and can lead to mold issues. Clogged gutters may cause water overflow, which may lead to cracks in a home's foundation. 

Choosing seamless gutters for your home can reduce the time spent maintaining your gutters and the cost of hiring someone to perform maintenance tasks. With fewer joints and pieces in seamless gutters, there are fewer places that need re-caulked or re-welded. Seamless gutters are a wise investment in your home that can save you time and money in the long term.
