Seamless Gutter System

What is a Seamless Gutter System?

Seamless Gutter System

A seamless gutter system is the process of installing a rain gutter using a continuous roll of metal instead of sticking two or more rolls together. This gutter system is aimed to lessen the visibility of seams so that it would look seamless and pave the way to lesser leaks. Seamless gutters also come in different colors that may go with the color of the roof or depending on one’s preference.

Difference Between a Traditional Gutter System and a Seamless Gutter System

In terms of measurement, traditional gutters usually come in fixed lengths (e.g. 10-20 ft.) that may or may not fit the exact roof area measurement while seamless gutters are formed to fit exactly on the roof area no matter what the area’s length is. This contributes to a neater look.

In terms of ease and complexity of installation, traditional gutters can usually be installed by anybody who knows how while seamless gutters may require an expert gutter professional contractor for it to be installed properly.  This makes seamless gutters more complicated to install.

In terms of cost, the traditional gutter system is less expensive compared to the seamless gutter system considering that the former no longer requires special equipment to install and the latter produces a finer end result.

How is a Seamless Gutter System Installed?

Seamless gutters are mostly installed by gutter professional contractors and the process of pre-forming the gutter is usually done on site. The length of the roof area is measured to find out its exact measurement as this will be used as basis in forming the gutter. A roll of metal is then, preformed according to the exact length of the roof area. If the roof area measures 15-20-ft. the gutter should also measure the same.

Preforming the seamless gutter is usually done using a special machine. Afterwards, the gutter will now be attached to the roof. The downspouts are attached later on and the rest of the formed gutters will be connected to finish that seamless look all around.

How Much Does a Seamless Gutter System Cost?

Seamless gutters are naturally expensive than traditional gutters. And this is because of two major factors.

  • The need for a contractorThis gutter system requires professional gutter contractors, which means there will be a need to invest in paying contractor services and their high-tech machines. This is something that a traditional gutter system does not require since after buying the gutter, one can simply install it themselves.
  • The quality of the result: Seamless gutters produce quality look and efficiency because of the neat installation process wherein no section by section connections are needed. Such fine quality gutter system naturally means slicing a bigger part of the budget worthy of the satisfaction it guarantees in terms of look and efficiency.
