Choosing between seamless or sectional gutters can have a huge impact on your gutter’s effectiveness and lifespan. Augusta Gutter Company prefers to only use our custom gutters with little to no seams because they require less maintenance overall and generally last longer than other options.
When gutters were first produced on the market, they were sold in different-sized sections and pieces. The sections were designed to be put up along the roof and then were easily connected with a glue-like seal. This system allowed gutters to be mass-produced and then cut to fit most homes.
While you can still purchase sectional gutters for a little DIY, there are many benefits to getting custom gutters without a seam.
The Top benefits
1. The perfect fit
Our gutters are custom-made for each building. Homeowners are guaranteed a perfect fit. If the gutters fit well, they will also function well. A gutter system that is custom-fit to your home will perform the way it should without any issue.
2. Less maintenance
Because our gutters have significantly fewer joints than the standard sectional gutters, they accumulate far less debris. They also attract fewer critters and pests looking for a new home. This leads to less time spent maintaining and cleaning your gutter system. Adding gutter screens/covers will further reduce the number of hours you spend on your gutters annually.
3. Fewer clogs
The joints of sectional gutters make them far more prone to clogs and backups. Leaves, pine needles, sticks, and other debris can collect in sectional gutters easier and create problems. When blockages become too big for water to flush them other, water can back up and cause damage to your home.
4. Fewer leaks
Any time there is a joint or seam in a gutter, there is a possibility that it will leak. Over time joints can widen from each other. Holes can form and rust can begin to set in. Therefore, with fewer seams, you’ll have fewer leaks.
5. Esthetic appeal
One of the largest perks to our gutters is that they simply look better! Constructed from aluminum, they can be painted to complement the home’s exterior. They last for years and will require little to no re-painting.
