What’s the Difference between Seamless Gutters & Regular Gutters?

Seamless Gutters When shopping for new rain gutters, you’ll come across two options: traditional gutters and seamless gutters. Though the difference between them is minor, seamless gutters are the far better choice. Traditional gutter systems are installed piece by piece, and small gaps – called seams – are created where the pieces join. Seamless gutters are different. They are installed in one long continuous piece, so there are no seams. This leads to many advantages, including:

They Minimize the Risk of Leaks

The seams in traditional gutters are weak points where water is able to leak out and damage your home’s exterior walls, foundation, and landscaping. This problem only increases over time, because the seams will become more and more vulnerable as the gutters age. Since seamless gutters don’t have any seams, they are far less likely to leak and will better protect your home against water damage.

They Help Prevent Clogs

Another problem with seams in gutters is that they create small ridges inside the gutter system. These ridges can slow the flow of water and also catch debris, such as leaves, which can cause clogs and lead to an overflow. Seamless gutters are better able to move water away from your home as there aren’t any obstructions.

They Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Finally, seamless gutters simply look better than traditional gutters due to their smooth, seamless appearance. This can give your home’s exterior a special touch and help boost its curb appeal.
