Aside from those pesky debris pile-ups that require a ladder and some elbow grease, many people never think twice about their home’s gutters. After all, they simply collect rainwater and guide it away from your home’s structure, what is there to improve upon? Quite a bit, actually! Here are three reasons to make the switch from traditional gutters to seamless gutters.
1. Better function
In the most basic sense, gutters drain water away from your home. Water collecting on and around your home means potential damage. This damage can come in a number of forms, including damage to your roof or damage to your foundation. Both of these are costly and complex repairs. While traditional gutters can do the job, seamless gutters can do it better. Having no seams greatly lowers the likelihood of leaks and of leaves, twigs, and other matter getting caught and clogging up your gutters. It also means that there are no broken points from which water could leak.
Seamless gutters are made from a continuous piece of material that will blend into the complete look of your home. Rather than stand out like traditional gutters, they are made to flow along your home’s lines. They are also available in a variety of colors, which allows you to find the perfect complement to your overall color scheme.
3. Less upkeep
Because of the sectional nature of traditional gutters, there are multiple points throughout the system that must be monitored closely. Those aforementioned gaskets or weld locations will need to be repaired or replaced at intervals, otherwise the entire gutter system can be jeopardized. Depending on the size of your home, this can be time-consuming and quite the chore. The uninterrupted form of seamless gutters removes these particular issues from a homeowner’s already long list of things to do.
The bottom line is that there is an easier and more effective way to prevent rainwater from damaging your home. Consider making the switch to seamless gutters. They are an investment, but you will save yourself a lot of hard work and hassle in the long run.
