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