Gutters are an integral part of your home’s roofing, landscaping, and drainage system. They move water from your roof and route it away from your home’s foundation, so it’s important to keep them in good shape at all times. If your gutters are showing wear or if they’re not doing the job for you, it may be time to replace them.

One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is whether to replace your current gutter system with traditional sectional gutters or go with a seamless gutter system.

What Are Seamless Gutters?

Seamless gutters are made using specialized equipment and are usually formed on-site. The sections used for seamless gutters are much longer than sectional gutters because they’re made in one piece and only have seams at corners.

Why Buy Seamless Gutters?

Although seamless gutters may be more expensive than sectional gutters, there are some important reasons you’d be wise to choose the seamless gutters. Here are just a few of the advantages seamless gutters have over sectional gutters.

Fewer leaks, clogs, and backups

Sectional gutters are seamed together at regular intervals with fasteners and caulk. Because they have more seams, they are more likely to leak. In addition, leaves and other debris can be trapped by the fasteners, causing the gutters to clog and overflow. With fewer seams and fasteners, seamless gutters are much less likely to leak.

Custom Fit

Seamless gutters are custom fitted to your home. They’re formed on site and this customization gives them a cleaner look. The cleaner look of a seamless gutter system can add to the curb appeal of your home.

Less Maintenance

The more seams you have in your gutter system, the more time you’ll need to spend maintaining them. Because every seam uses sealant, there are more opportunities for the sealant to fail over time. Seamless gutters have fewer seams and so are easier to maintain.

Greater Strength

Seamless gutters are much stronger than sectional gutters. Most seamless gutters are formed on site using contractor grade materials. Sectional gutter systems are usually made with thinner materials, like the gutter sections you find in home improvement stores. In some cases, the gutter sections can be as much as 20% thinner and won’t hold up as well as the seamless gutters.
