Gutters are many times, seen as an “install it and forget about it” component of the home. We may tend to believe that once the gutters are there, we don’t need to worry about them, consider their health, or do any maintenance on them. However, anything worth putting on our homes should be regularly maintained to keep them working at tip-top performance.
Seamless gutters can help make the maintenance process much easier though. This type of system is as close to an “install it and forget about it” system as we can get. Let’s explore just what a seamless gutter system is, some amazing facts about it, and why residents in Hillsboro love it.
What is a Seamless Gutter?
A seamless gutter is a long continuous piece of material measured and installed as one piece. Gutters can be made of aluminum, zinc, copper, and steel. The design is for limited joints, seams, and fasteners. This design far surpasses the traditional sectional gutter, which consists of individual pieces fastened together to create the span desired. What are some other advantages of seamless gutters?
Advantages of Seamless Gutters
As stated above, seamless gutters are custom fit to your home’s roof as one long span. This ensures fewer areas for debris buildup and less leakage. Sectional gutters require fasteners to hold each piece together. Over time, these holes can widen and cause rust or breakage of your gutter which can be a costly repair. Seamless gutters offer the advantage of water flow to the downspouts, with minimal debris buildup caused by joints. With fewer openings for water to get in, seamless gutters offer the advantage of keeping water away from your roof. This offers less chance for mold and mildew.
Seamless gutters are custom fit to your home. This adds a cleaner, more attractive appearance and adds to your property value. Our professional staff at Willey Roofing in Hillsboro are able to properly measure your roof for a perfect custom fit, and educate you on gutter installation.
The lifespan of seamless gutters can be, on average, 30 years. With proper maintenance and yearly inspections, they can easily last longer. Considering seamless gutters have no seams, there are fewer areas for breaking which means these gutters can withstand the snow and rain of the Southern Ohio weather patterns.
Seamless gutters have less surface area for clogging and buildup, thus making the water flow easily through to the downspouts. This is the desired goal of a good working gutter system, and seamless gutters offer the solution. Sectional gutter systems have fasteners that can easily create a buildup of leaves, inviting pests and birds to make themselves at home.
Lastly, the look of a seamless gutter is streamlined and sleek. Many homeowners desire a uniform appearance to the exterior of their home, so choosing a style, size, and color to match the home is ideal. Willey Roofing can help you find just the right fit for your home.
When it comes to securing your home against water damage, while preserving its elegance, seamless gutters stand out as the top choice. With their efficiency, durability, visually pleasing design, and minimal maintenance needs, seamless gutters provide a solution for homeowners.
