4 Reasons Seamless Gutters Trump Sectional SystemsOctober 17, 2016
When it comes to gutters, going seamless is the more reasonable thing to do. Sectional gutters may be traditional, but seamless systems are better in every department.
As the authority in replacement gutters, Huff ‘N Puff is here explain the benefits of seamless design over its sectional counterpart. Here are the things the former does that the latter normally can’t:
1. Keeping Leak Risk to a Minimum
The chances of water leaks in your gutter system increases with the number of seams; fewer seams means less risk of leakage.
Sectional gutters are made of different pieces of metal sealed together around your home. They use sealants to cover the seams and prevent leaks. However, these sealants don’t last forever. Eventually, they’ll wear away and set the stage for water infiltration.
On the other hand, seamless gutters are made of unmarred metal pieces stretching around your home. Although they’re not completely free of seams (since they form one on every corner), a seamless system has a straight shot of gutter from one end to the other.
2. Requiring Less Maintenance
As seamless gutter systems practically use no sealants, cleaning them is the only chore you will ever have on your plate. You wouldn’t have to bother checking whether they need to be re-sealed occasionally, which is no easy task.
3. Making Cleaning Easier
Unlike seamless systems, sectional gutters form ridges at the bottom. These narrow spaces trap tiny debris and back up small amounts of rainwater. Ridges are hard-to-clean areas, often left untouched. If you go seamless, you can clear your gutter system to the last piece of debris and deny any opportunity for blockages to form.
4. Creating a Uniform Look
Like heated gutters, a seamless gutter system helps increase your curb appeal. By being composed of single sheets of metal, you can rest assured that your gutters will have a similar appearance from all angles. It’s not uncommon for sectional gutters to have dissimilar features because, after all, they’re just separate pieces of metal sealed as one.
