When you hire professional roofing contractors to replace your gutters, you’ll likely be given an option to choose a system with seams or go for seamless. While the latter option sounds a bit more expensive, it does have much to offer in terms of benefits in the long run. Here’s are the benefits of a seamless gutter system.
Fewer Clogs and Back-ups
With normal sectional gutters, the joints and seams will always lead to clogs later on. Small debris such as leaves and twigs can get inside the gutter and become difficult to clean even when maintained regularly, which makes it much more problematic. But with a seamless gutter system, you won’t have to worry about having clogs. Since they’re made from one single piece, you won’t get the usual amount of debris accumulated on the gutters.
Less Likely to Leak
When a gutter has a joint where two sections meet, there is the possibility of leakage problems in that area. Over time, these joints can widen and allow water to leak through. DIY repair work can always be done, but it can become expensive over time. If you choose to ignore the issue, it will only cause more damage to your home and end up with a costly roof replacement. On the other hand, seamless gutters have much fewer joints, so you won’t have to worry about any DIY or professional repairs for a long time to come.
Ease of Installation
One of the most tedious parts of installing new gutters is measuring and cutting them to size and fitting them all together. But with seamless gutters, they’re customized to fit the dimensions of your roof. This means your contractor won’t have to spend time making sure the pieces fit together like they would with sectional and seamed gutters.
Minimal Maintenance Needed
Since there are virtually no gaps in a seamless gutter system, they don’t accumulate as much debris as sectional gutters do. This means you won’t have to worry about any debris clogging in a seamless gutter as you would with their sectional counterparts. This translates to fewer clogs and any amount of debris that builds up can be easily cleaned with a leaf blower or water hose.
