What Are Seamless Gutters?

Seamless gutters are a trough placed at the lowest horizontal edge of a roof to collect and control rain water. They are also known as eavestroughs, rain gutters, and house gutters. There are many different styles, sizes and materials used to create seamless gutters. “Seamless” specifically refers to the building and installation process that is done on site to prevent the need for seams in straight linear runs of house gutter. 

Eavestroughs and rain gutters have been around since people first experienced rain. Whether you are rerouting rain away from your tent, home, or city, your goal is to move the rain water to a location that allows for comfort and prevents damage.  Water and flood prevention using troughs and gutter systems have been an age old project all over the world.

Benefits of a Seamless Gutter for Your Home

Seamless gutters offer a perfect fit… every time

Because each seamless gutter system is custom-fashioned for each unique property, homeowners are guaranteed a perfect fit… every time. When gutters fit well, they function well. An expertly-crafted system will offer the performance you need.

Seamless gutters experience fewer clogs & backups

he joints and seams of sectional gutters lead to one thing: clogs. They make the buildup of leaves, twigs and other debris inside the gutter much more problematic. When these blockages become too large the system is unable to flush out the water creating damaging backups.

Seamless gutters offer lasting appeal & beauty

One big benefit of seamless gutters is the lasting beauty and appeal they provide to the home. Many find them more aesthetically appealing than sectional gutters. They are often constructed from aluminum but can also be made from copper and steel as well. Most can be painted to match the home’s exterior. Many also offer a baked-on enamel finish that lasts for years and never requires painting.

Seamless gutters require little maintenance

Because seamless gutters have less joints, they don’t accumulate as much debris as sectional gutters do. They are also less attractive to little critters looking for a home. This all leads to less time spent cleaning and maintaining your seamless gutter system.

Seamless gutters are less likely to leak

Anytime a gutter has a joint where two sections meet, there is the possibility of leakage problems. These joints can widen from each other. Holes can form. Rust can begin to take over. Seamless gutters have less joints and, therefore, less leaks and rust.

Minimal Maintenance

With less opportunity for leaks and clogging, seamless gutters require minimal maintenance compared to sectional gutter systems. Clearing out your gutters can be an extremely hazardous task that is known to result in serious injuries. You will undeniably enjoy this benefit of seamless gutters.
