An excellent gutter system in good repair is important, not only for aesthetics and convenience but also because it protects your house from the damage that could be caused by water not being drained away from the house properly. Water draining around the foundation can cause damages and leaks, and the buildup of ice dams caused by improperly draining gutters can cause leaks and water damage from above.
One of the solutions to these problems is, of course, cleaning, painting, and maintaining your gutters on a regular basis, but when that gets tedious, there are other options. One of the solutions is the seamless gutter. Here is everything you need to know about these gutters.
What Are Seamless Gutters?
Every house is a different size, and so gutters are often sold in standard, easy-to-manage sizes, and pieced together in order to create a continuous gutter around a house. Unfortunately, building a gutter that way leaves seams between the lengths of the gutter where leaks can develop and cause damage to your home.
The solution is a seamless gutter, which is made out of a single piece of aluminum in order to fit your house, rather than piecing pre-cut sizes together. With no seams, there is little or no opportunity for leaks to develop, making your gutters last longer and protecting your home from damage. Think of it as an investment in your home.
Are Seamless Gutters Really Seamless?
There are a few different kinds of seamless gutters out there. Many seamless gutters don’t have a top on them to keep out debris, and without the top, they are indeed seamless. But if an aftermarket top is slapped on top, suddenly you have seams, which makes your gutters vulnerable to leaks once again. For truly seamless gutters, invest in a gutter system that is designed to be all one piece, such as K-Guard Seamless Gutters.
Why Choose Seamless Gutters Over Regular Gutters?
If your home needs new gutters anyway, or if you’re ready to invest a little money in the long-term care of your home, get seamless gutters. These gutter systems eliminate the potential for leaks in those vulnerable seams. Your gutters work better, and for longer. Also, you get to go longer without replacing them again, and your home avoids the damage that can occur if your gutters leak.
