What's the Difference with Seamless Gutters?
Vinyl Gutters, and Seamed Gutters are bought at a store, typically Home Improvement like lowes or home depot. They can be easily assembled, and Screwed on to your roofing edge to catch the rain as it pours off your roof. While fairly easy to do, this means the gutters have edge's and seams where water can easily pass through and drip into your fascia, and on the ground next to your house.
Water sitting on top of your property, can mean bad news to homeowners. causing the risk of water damage of to your home! Also erosion can occur, as the water drips onto the ground next to your home creating the risk of foundation damage, dead plants, and ruined landscaping.
Seamless Gutters have an obvious advantage in their design, as without seams the gutter is likely to never leak. However, 30', 40' of seamless gutters, can't be transported down the road! Our gutter contractorsuse the thickest grade aluminum material available, and transport it to your home. A specialized gutter machine then Roll's and breaks the aluminum as it is being fed through the machine, to create one long seamless gutter piece on site. Hidden hangers are then used to attach the gutters, so that minimal penetration is required, and your gutters can last a lifetime.
How long do they Last?
Vinyl Gutters are made of a plastic like material, that is very cheap, they are usually smaller, and will fill up quickly, and sag. If your home experiences a lot of downpour or falling debris, the gutter's are like to break apart and fall off. Usually this happens within 3-5 years.
Seamless Gutters are made of strong material that can support the weight of falling debris from your roof, and surrounding tree's. They don't have seams, and are likely to never fall off if they are attached to sturdy roof edge. Seamless Metal Gutters typically last 40-60 years before requiring any service.
