Are you in the market for a new gutter system and wondering if you should try seamless gutters? Well, here’s everything you need to know about seamless gutters.
What are seamless gutters?
The simple answer is they are gutters without seams.
If you’ve been to a hardware store, you’ve probably seen single lengths of gutters that are not joined together like the traditional sectional gutters.
To join these lengths of gutters, your contractor will take the exact measurement of your roof where the gutter is supposed to be installed, join the metal pieces together, and then install it.
Why should you choose seamless gutters?
Simple, they have no seams, meaning you won’t have to worry about leaks.
Their smooth, seamless appearance is a plus on your curb appeal, and they are easier to maintain; you won’t be dealing with frequent clogs.
Because they are custom-tailored, you get a gutter system that is unique to your home.
What are seamless gutters made of?
Typical seamless gutter materials are aluminum and steel, but you can also choose copper, which is a much better-looking material and is exceptionally durable.
The only issue is it’s way expensive compared to aluminum and steel.
How long does seamless gutter installation take?
Different variables can affect the time frame for seamless gutter installation. For example, the installation process can take 2-3days if:
- New soffits or fascia has to be installed
- Your home has a complex roofline
- And if an old gutter system has to be removed
Otherwise, sometimes it only takes a day to complete the installation.
What’s the cost of seamless gutters?
Knowing the exact amount you’ll be spending is almost possible; this is why;
The costs of seamless gutters are influenced by linear foot of the gutter lengths, which will depend on the size of your roofline and the material you want, plus the installation charges.
The best way to find out is by hiring a professional who will first take your roofline measurements and give you a value.
