Seamless Gutters & Downspouts by The Big Fish

Always add Seamless Gutters to Your Home or Business when Possible

Gutter & Downspout CloseupWhen choosing the right gutters for your building a big decision to make is seamed or seamless gutters. Trust us, seamless gutters will require a lot less maintenance over the years making them the smart choice for your home or building.

Seamed gutters or sectional gutters are formed using small (8'-12') gutter sections that are joined and fastened together at the seams. The seams must be fastened together with care, usually overlapping them and riveting in expansion joints then applying a gutter seal calking.

Sectional gutters are appealing to some roofers because they are less expensive and easier for them to install buy and install with small crews. The problem with sectional gutters is there are many seams that must be manually joined and patched to make them leak-proof. Joints must be made leak-proof at every point where two gutter sections are joined together.

The contractor will generally mobilize a special gutter forming machine to the job site to extrude the gutters from one long continuous roll of aluminum coil. These long runs are then attached to the home using gutter hangers, with seams or joints located only at the mitered corners.

Seamless gutters on the other hand require the use of a specialized gutter-forming machine and an experienced contractor. Seamless gutters offer many benefits to homeowners and they should always be your first choice if possible.

The 5 benefits of seamless gutters for your building

  1. Seamless gutters offer a perfect fit… every time. Because each seamless gutter system is custom-fashioned for each unique property, homeowners are guaranteed a perfect fit for their home. When gutters fit well, they function well.
  2. Seamless gutters require little to no maintenance. Because seamless gutters have the fewest number of joints, they don’t accumulate as much debris as sectional gutters do.
  3. Seamless gutters experience fewer clogs & backups. The joints and seams of sectional gutters are where clogs form. Seams cause the buildup of leaves, twigs and other debris inside the gutter requiring more maintenance. When blockage build-ups at seams become too large the gutter system is unable to transport rain water fast enough causing damaging backups and leaks.
  4. Seamless gutters are less likely to leak. Gutter that have joints where two sections meet must be manually patched to stop leaks. Over time there is a higher possibility of leakage problems. These joint patches dry out crack and loosen up. They can split and start to leak water. Holes can form. Seamless gutters have the minimum number of joints and, therefore, less leak points.
  5. Seamless gutters offer lasting appeal & beauty with a baked-on enamel finish that lasts for years and never requires painting. Most homeowners find them more aesthetically appealing than sectional gutters. They are most often made from coated aluminum but they can also be made from copper or stainless steel. Most can be painted to match the home’s exterior. Many also offer a baked-on enamel finish that lasts for years and never requires painting.

Add Seamless Gutters To Your Home

Sectional gutters with joints or seams are more prone to debris accumulation and leaks. Leaves, pine needles, twigs, etc. accumulate in the gutters at these seams and cause clogs more often. Choose seamless gutters to enjoy longer-lasting maintenance free gutters on your home.
