There are two general categories of gutters: seamless and sectional. If you need to have your gutters replaced, we recommend opting for seamless gutters as they provide superior performance and are more attractive to boot.
In this post, trusted roofing company Northern Pacific Roofing discusses five advantages of seamless gutters.
Minimal Clogs and Backups
The joints and seams of sectional gutters are vulnerable to clogs from a buildup of leaves, twigs and other debris. These clogs can prevent your gutters from draining water properly, potentially leading to serious water damage in and around your home. Seamless gutters don’t have this vulnerability since they are designed without seams.
Seamless gutters are custom made to fit your roof perfectly. When installing seamless gutters, your roofing contractor will take meticulous measurements to ensure a precise fit.
Lower Chances of Leaks
Leaks are mostly common in gutter systems that have joints–or the area where two sections of the gutter meet. Over time, these joints can develop gaps and form holes, where leaks are likely to start. With seamless gutters, you don’t have to worry about these things since they have significantly fewer joints.
Seamless gutters tend to accumulate less debris than sectional gutters because they have fewer joints. Obviously, this means less time is needed for gutter maintenance.
