What to Know About Seamless Gutters

Your roof has many parts, and one of the essential features is often overlooked: gutters. Water can destroy any material, especially materials on the exterior of your home, like siding. For this reason, you must ensure your gutters are always in good working condition. If your gutters have problems, you can keep reading to learn more about seamless gutters.

What Materials Are Used to Craft Seamless Gutters?

Seamless gutters are made from aluminum with a baked-on finish. Other homeowners choose copper or factor-painted steal. Copper is another option; it provides a unique, stylish appearance to the house, especially as the copper changes as it ages. Only some homeowners prefer the look and benefits of steel. All three options, however, withstand rusting well, making them great for gutters.

Instead of being pre-fabricated and installed like traditional gutters, the materials used to craft seamless gutters are brought to your home and pushed through an extrusion machine. This machine can make the gutter as long as needed, so you won’t have to deal with seams where the lengths of the gutter are sealed together.

How Much Do Seamless Gutters Cost?

The cost of your gutters depends on the material you use. Coated steel is the cheapest option, costing around six to ten dollars per linear foot. This includes all the materials (gutters, downspouts, etc.) and labor. Aluminum is another cheaper option, costing around seven to thirteen dollars per linear foot, including materials and labor.

Finally, copper is the most expensive choice for homeowners who want a more luxurious option, costing around twenty to thirty dollars per linear foot for materials and installation. The price may increase, regardless of material, if old gutters need to be removed or repairs must be made before new gutters can be hung.

What Are the Benefits of Seamless Gutters?

Because they are made at your house for your house, seamless gutters are always a perfect fit, which can lead to fewer problems in the future, such as leaks. Similarly, since seams are absent, leaks are less common.

Seams can become weak, especially if the system needs to be well-maintained, leading to more leaks. Leaking gutters don't just create a mess; they can ruin your roof, siding, foundation, landscaping, and much more. As an added insult, lots of standing water attracts pests.

Plus, standing water can increase the risk of slips. Water alone can be slippery, but water can also freeze into ice or promote the growth of slippery moss on walkways. If someone does slip while on your property, they may be able to sue, especially if they can prove you've been neglecting your gutters.

How Much Maintenance do Seamless Gutters Need?

Seamless gutters tend to need a little less maintenance than traditional gutters. They don't need cleaning as often because the single, seamless gutter allows for a smoother ride toward the downspout. Regardless of which type of gutters you choose, all gutters need regular cleaning to remove debris.

This is especially important during snow or rain as the debris will stop water from draining properly, which causes overflows. Seamless gutters are durable, but you may need to clean them occasionally to remove dirt, which can affect the aesthetics of your curb appeal.

Your home needs gutters to prevent water damage to many parts, including the roof and foundation. Seamless gutters have many benefits because they don't have the same seams as traditional gutters. As a result, they are more durable and require less maintenance. If you want to know more about seamless gutters, you can contact us at HF General Contractor Inc. today.
