If you’re installing a new gutter, it may not have occurred to you to consider the options available.
For those not in the industry, there are different types of gutters to suit each home and aesthetic. From the material it’s made out of, to the cost and look of each gutter, there are a number of factors to consider when choosing a gutter right for you.
When you picture a gutter, it’s likely that you picture the old metal types, which come in parts and fit together, sliding in on one another. However, an extremely popular gutter choice is to install a seamless gutter that comes as one, continuous piece of aluminum and is installed as such.
If you’ve investigated the type of gutter you want and found a seamless gutter is the way to go, here is what you need to consider:
Naturally, a seamless gutter is going to be far less likely to leak, as opposed to one which comes in separate pieces. There are fewer holes for water to escape from, so the water will drain exactly where you want it to.
The continuous, smooth shape of the gutter allows a more steady flow of water, and further means leaves and debris are less likely to clog the gutter as they have less to get caught on. This low-maintenance is highly desirable and reduces the cost if you prefer to hire somebody to clean your gutters rather than doing it yourself.
Seamless gutters we use are aluminum.
You also have a more streamlined look without the edges and cuts that come with traditional gutters.
Seamless gutters do come with a price tag, which is usually a couple of hundred dollars more expensive than a traditional gutter. However, the low maintenance of a seamless gutter can make the investment cost-effective, as you can spend less time clearing them and ultimately, they can increase the value of your home.
You aren’t able to install a seamless gutter yourself. Finding an installation team that works with the needs of you and your home can feel like a chore. That’s why it’s always best to use a local company who understands the climate and other elements which may impact your gutters.
