The Difference Between Traditional And Seamless Gutters

The Difference Between Traditional And Seamless Gutters

October 26, 2017

Water has a way of seeping through even in the tiniest gaps, which is why traditional, sectional gutters do not offer solid protection. Instead, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY recommends choosing seamless gutters for your next gutter installation project.

The Difference Between Traditional And Seamless Gutters

In today’s post, we explain why seamless gutters provide better defense against the threat of water damage.

Strength and Durability

Sectional gutters are composed of different pieces of aluminum connected with seams. Over time, constant exposure to the elements can cause these seams to develop tiny cracks that water can leak through, causing water damage to your roof and siding. Seamless gutters, on the other hand, are built with one piece of aluminum custom designed to fit perfectly on your roof. Because they don’t have the vulnerability of seams, they offer superior strength and durability.

Resistance to Leaks

Traditional gutters have segments connected using sealants. The technique used in their manufacturing allows mass production of metals that can fit any home. The downside is that this design often results in leaks, usually from the joints that connect each part. In contrast, seamless gutters come in one piece, minimizing the danger of leaks.

Aesthetics

Sectional gutters are easier to install because the gutter lengths are pre-fabricated and cut to standard sizes. Seamless gutters are cut to size, which makes installing them a bit more time-consuming. They give an impression of uniformity, however, and lending a clean, sleek aesthetic to your exterior. Both types of gutters come in different colors and materials to match your exterior.

At Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY, we provide experienced gutters replacement services to meet your needs. Our seamless gutters are crafted from the best materials available. Call us today at (855) 483-3678 to learn more about our products and services.
