When the time comes to upgrade your drainage system, you might wonder if you should install seamless gutters. The short answer is yes. Every home should have high-quality gutters installed around the perimeter. They’re a vital part of residential water drainage. They redirect rainwater from the roof to downspouts and protect your home from flooding.
In recent years, seamless gutters have become more popular. Many professionals now recommend seamless over traditional systems. Here’s why.
Fewer Water Leaks
Seamless gutters are less likely to leak than traditional ones. The majority of leaks form at joints or where two sections meet. Over time, the parts may pull apart from each other, creating an escape route for water. A seamless system has very few joints—usually only at corners—so water leaks are a rare occurrence. Because of this, you won’t have to worry about a flooded foundation or drowned flower garden after a storm.
Less Worry About Clogs
When your gutters clog, it can compromise both the roof and your home’s foundation. Leaves, pine needles, dirt, and animal nests are just a sample of what you may pull out of your gutters. Some homeowners even find trees growing up their drainage pipes! With a seamless system, there are fewer openings for debris to accumulate. Water flows freely, and you won’t spend your weekends unclogging your gutters.
A Perfect Fit for Your Home
Unlike sectional gutters, seamless ones will always fit your house like a glove. A professional installer cuts the gutters to the correct length during the installation process. You’ll only find joints at downspouts or corners. Not only does this look aesthetically pleasing, but this one-piece design also speeds up and improves water flow. There is less likelihood of your gutters overflowing, even during a powerful thunderstorm.
Less Maintenance Required
When you have a day off, the last thing on your mind is your gutters. But, if you have a sectional drainage system, you may find yourself on your roof making repairs. If you want to spend more of your free time doing things you actually enjoy, then it’s time to go seamless. You won’t have to worry about leaks, clogs, rust, or individual pieces pulling away. The initial investment is slightly more expensive, but you’ll save time and money in the long run.
