Gutters work to protect your home from extensive water damage by effectively directing rainwater away. But like most exterior components exposed to harsh weather conditions, your gutter system will fail eventually. And once it does, you should promptly get a replacement. How about a seamless gutter system? This excellent option has fast become a favorite for many homeowners. Before getting one, however, it pays to learn more about them. South Point Roofing & Construction, premier source of quality skylights and gutters, shares some of the questions to ask.
1. What makes seamless gutters different? Gutters typically come in two types–sectional and seamless. The former comes in separate segments that are strung together, while the latter uses only a single, continuous piece of metal that’s crafted on-site. Seamless gutters are made to fit perfectly along your roofline, and because they only have seams at the corners, significantly reduces the potential for leaks. What’s more, their neat and sleek design adds to the overall look of your home.
2. Is it possible to DIY seamless gutters? Crafting seamless gutters will require specialized equipment and their installation will need a professional. This makes them a bit costlier than standard sectional gutters, but their good looks, durability and smooth draining performance more than makes up for the initial cost. South Point Roofing & Construction not only offers quality roof installation–you can also count on us to handle your seamless gutter needs. With our trained and experienced crew, expect only timely and efficient workmanship that leaves no room for mistakes.
3. Do seamless gutters come in different colors? They do, which makes matching them to your roof and home’s exterior palette much easier. Because their finish is factory-applied, your seamless gutters will not require painting after installation. This allows for a vibrant color that lasts longer.
4. What are seamless gutters made of? They come in many different materials, but the most popular option is aluminum. Aluminum seamless gutters are lightweight yet durable, and cost-effective. But if you’re looking to preserve the look of your historic home, you might go for copper or steel.
