Reasons Why Homeowners Love Seamless Gutters
These days, if you ask friends and family what kind of gutters they recommend, you’re likely to hear the word
“seamless” often. Unlike traditional gutters, these are bent by highly specialized machines rather than pieced together,
which creates a seamless effect. These gutter systems certainly do have their benefits, and the reasons below are
exactly why more people are making the switch than ever before.
#1 – Fewer Leaks
By far, the biggest benefit seamless gutters have over their traditional counterparts is the lack of leaks. Because the
gutter system is bent and curved rather than fitted together at a series of seams, there are fewer places for the system
to leak. In a traditional system, there are seams every few feet. As temperatures and humidity levels fluctuate, the
material will expand and contract, eventually creating leaks. The only areas with seams when you choose a seamless
system are at the corners of your home where the gutters meet. This reduces the odds of leakage and ensures fewer
#2 – Fewer Clogs
If you were going to go down a water slide, would you prefer a smooth one or one with bumps along the way? A
seamless gutter can be compared to a smooth water slide, which means there’s nothing for debris to hang up on as it
travels through the system. In a traditional gutter system, one leaf can become trapped by a seam, and this leaf can
catch more, resulting in troublesome clogs. With seamless gutters, though clogs are certainly possible, they are far less
common in seamless systems for this very reason.
#3 – A Custom Look
Traditional gutters were designed to be universal – a one-size-fits-all approach, if you will. Installers will measure and cut
them so they fit your home, but this does very little to provide curb appeal. Seamless gutters, on the other hand, are
different. They are specifically fitted to your home. Installers will measure your home and bend the gutter system in
such a way that it looks like they were meant to be together. This can improve the aesthetic appeal of your home, and
that may even add to its market value.
#4 – Peace of Mind
Last, but most certainly not least, homeowners are choosing seamless gutters more now than ever before because they
can offer unprecedented peace of mind. With fewer clogs, fewer leaks, and therefore fewer repairs, the small difference
in the initial investment is worth your ability to breathe a sigh of relief. What’s more, because seamless gutters are
almost always installed by professionals, that’s even more pressure off your shoulders. All you must do is pick the
material and style and the professional installers will take care of the rest.
Homeowners want three things when they choose gutters: functionality, curb appeal, and a stress-free installation that
will last for years to come. That’s exactly what they get when they opt for seamless gutters, and that’s why more
homeowners than ever are recommending them to their friends and family, too.
