There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl, copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10 lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings. Each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. The best method available is the installation of Seamless Aluminum Gutters. Seamless Gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional Gutter Specialist.
The term Seamless Gutters can be confusing because there are seams in the system. The seams are only at the corners and downspout outlets. These joints are fastened more securely and sealed for stability and leak resistance. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous, which makes it both strong and visually more appealing.
Each home is different and can require a unique solution. Some homes have standard 5-inch gutters installed, but it is best – and in some cases necessary – to install 6-inch or even 7-inch oversized gutters.
