Many gutter systems are installed in segments – that is, they come in standard 10-foot lengths and pieced together on-site. Over time, however, each joint would eventually lose its tight seal, causing leaks and exposing the home’s exterior to water damage.——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–This is not the case with a seamless gutter system. It doesn’t have weak points, which minimizes the potential for leaks and other problems. If you are looking to install new gutters with the help of gutter pros, it would be a good idea to ask them these questions:“Are They Completely Free of Any Seams?”Seamless gutters don’t have seams, except on the downspouts that are attached to the corners. Fortunately, there’s no need to worry about leaks. Once the downspouts are secured to the gutters, they’re either sealed or soldered depending on the material used. A silicone seal is used if the gutters are made of galvanized steel or aluminum. In the case of copper gutters, the joints are soldered.“Are Seamless Gutters Customizable?”Gutter pros will tell you that seamless gutters are better than the typical off-the-shelf ones because they’re guaranteed to be a great fit for your home.
