Seamless Gutter Installation
When it rains in Florida and Georgia, it pours. For many homeowners, this can have a negative effect on their property.
Too often, not much thought is put into gutter systems until problems arise, but gutters are an integral part of your home’s design.
What is the Purpose of Gutters
To protect your roof, lawn, and the structure of your home, gutters are vital. They remove water from roofs to prevent water leaks and ensure water doesn’t make contact with the foundation of your home.
Problems that arise without gutters, or with improper gutters, include erosion around foundations, stains, rot, and damage to landscaping.
Differences Between Seamless and Sectional Gutters
Sectional Gutter Systems
Sectional gutters connect small sections together to form the length of the gutter runs. The joints at which the pieces connect are big points of failure for sectional gutters. Each joint is prone to leakage, and the overlapping seams are likely to catch debris and mold which can become a threat to the exterior and structure of your home.
Seamless Gutter Systems
With seamless gutters, a one long continuous piece is cut rather than connecting sections. This adds strength and rigidity to your home’s gutter system as well as reducing the chances of leaks.
The seams in a sectional system represent a weak point in the structure of the gutter. Over time, the seams weaken causing more opportunities for leaks. The more seams and joints a gutter system has, the higher the risk is for potential leaks.
The lack of seams and joints in a seamless gutter system means less places for leaves and debris to clog them. This means no rot, mold, or damage to your property and less maintenance for the homeowner.
Aesthetic Appeal of Seamless Gutters
Many customers prefer the sleeker profile seamless gutters offer to the perpendicular lines typical of sectional systems. The connection and seams of a traditional sectional gutter system lessen the overall visual appeal of the home.
Choosing seamless gutters is an attractive alternative for those who care not only about preventing damage caused from leaks, but who are also concerned about their home’s overall appearance and curb appeal.
Protecting Your Investment
Your home is a valuable asset, and likely one of the biggest investments you’ll make. It’s vital to protect your foundation, roof, and all the bits in between by diverting water away from the structure.
Gutter guards can also be installed for even more protection and more ease with cleaning and maintenance.
