When you replace your roof, it is necessary not to overlook your gutters since buildings have gutters for a reason. Your home’s gutters play a critical role in preventing extensive water damage to your home by channeling rainwater and melted snow away from your home to protect it. If your gutters are old and failing, replacing them is essential.

Rather than buying traditional sectional gutters, you should instead consider seamless gutters. While these gutters might have a higher upfront cost, they are much more durable and last longer than their sectional counterparts. They also add to your home’s appeal and its value. Here are some reasons why investing in seamless gutters makes sense.

Ease of Installation

When you purchase sectional gutters, the installers must assemble gutter sections and seal the joints while ensuring they fit your roof’s dimensions properly. With seamless gutters, our professional installers at Warren Thompson & Son Roofing & Siding will not have to try to piece them together and seal the numerous joints involved with sectional gutters. Instead, we manufacture your seamless gutters to fit your roof’s dimensions exactly.

We create them in a solid strip that your installers custom-fit to your home’s specifications. During our seamless gutter installation process, our installers use a gutter machine to bend the gutters and match your home’s exact length and width.

Less Required Maintenance

Hour home’s gutters funnel rainwater away from the foundation and roofline to prevent damage. Clogs and leaks can form if your gutters are old and damaged, leading to costly repairs. Seamless gutters prevent these issues and help you save repair costs.

Seamless gutters do not come in sections attached to seams and joints and are instead connected to your home in one piece. This uniformity means they are less likely to form leaks or become clogged with leaves. As a result, you won’t have to pull out a ladder to clean your gutters multiple times per year.

Seamless gutters can also better withstand New Jersey’s harsh weather conditions. They can last for decades and are made from strong, coated aluminum, steel, or copper that resists chips and rust. While you might still need to clean them occasionally, you can reduce the maintenance needs even more by adding a good gutter cover.

Fewer Clogs

Sectional gutters have seams and joints where the pieces connect. These can lead to clogs and sagging when debris enters the gutters and accumulates at the seams over time. Since seamless gutters lack the seams of sectional gutters, they have fewer places where debris can collect and build.

Better Aesthetic Appeal

While many homeowners still have sectional gutters, seamless gutters have quickly emerged as the go-to standard. These gutters come in a variety of colors and are built from high-quality aluminum, steel, or copper. Since they complement the exterior of your home, they add to its aesthetic appeal. You can also get them with a long-lasting enamel finish, which is very easy to clean.

Since seamless gutter systems come in a range of colors and are custom-fit for your home, they blend into your home’s appearance instead of noticeably standing out. This blending allows you to achieve a flawless look for your home’s exterior, adding to its curb appeal.

The lack of seams in seamless gutters makes debris and leaves less likely to accumulate and form clogs. This lack of seams helps to prevent overflows and damage to your home and its gutters. Since they are also better at keeping water away from your home, they help keep your landscaping and foundation pristine.

Reduced Leakage Risks

When you buy sectional gutters, the installers attach the separate pieces with adhesives applied at the seams to create an ongoing length. These adhesive seams portions mean each joint has seams and is susceptible to leaks. If your gutters leak, your home can sustain water damage. Despite this, your gutters still need to perform their intended function. Seamless gutters prevent this problem since they only have seams at the corners. Their potential to leak is significantly lower.

Most gutter leaks result from corrosion, rust, or cracks, which can also occur due to faulty materials or poor installation jobs. Gutter leaks can be hazardous and facilitate mold growth and flooding. Thankfully, seamless gutters are more durable, have fewer seams, and are much less likely to develop leaks.

Added Home Value

If you plan to sell your home in the future, an excellent way to add to its value is to purchase new gutters. While the gutters might not seem like a significant addition, they can make a big difference in a potential buyer’s impression of your home.

Buyers know that seamless gutters are less prone to leaks and clogs, and they precisely fit your home’s measurements. When your home has seamless gutters, your real estate agent can point out that they will require less maintenance and cleaning.

A home with a high-quality seamless gutter system protects against potential water damage caused by leaks or overflowing gutters. If your home has leaky or clogged gutters, the foundation can sustain damage and crumble or crack. Seamless gutters are efficient and provide tremendous protection, making them a worthwhile investment whether you’re considering selling your home.

Since we make your seamless gutters on-site to ensure we exactly match your home’s measurements, the installation cost might be higher for seamless gutters vs. sectional gutters. However, this cost difference is offset since you’ll need to spend less money on maintenance and cleaning costs over time. They also last longer than sectional gutter systems, so you won’t have to replace your gutters as soon as you would if you went with sectional gutters instead.

Greater Durability and Longer Lifespan

Seamless gutters are much stronger and more durable than sectional gutters. This is because they are typically made of high-quality materials with thicknesses of either 0.027 inches or 0.032 inches. Sectional gutters are mass-produced and made out of a lower-quality material. They are typically thinner than seamless gutters by 20% or more.

Since we use thicker, contractor-grade material to make seamless gutters, they have a longer lifespan than sectional gutters. Even though you won’t have to spend much on maintenance and cleaning, you can anticipate your seamless gutters lasting for 20 years or more.
