What are Seamless Gutters?
Custom seamless gutters, also known as continuous rain gutters, are the most popular choice of gutter installation. In fact, nearly 80% of home owners throughout the nation have seamless gutters on their homes. Here are the top 5 reasons why:
- Elimination of seams and reduce leaks
- Available in over 30 colors
- Long lasting enamel finish; never needs to be repainted
- Each piece is designed on site for a full custom installation
- One day installation
What to look for:
Seamless gutters are the most effective system to collect and properly channel rain water from your roof off of your property. In fact, poorly designed rain gutters can cause more damage to your property consequently damaging soffit vents, fascia, roofing, siding, and erode the mortar in the brick and masonry. Additionally, dysfunctional rain gutters can even wreak havoc on your interior of your home. The most common issues being damaging walls, sheet rock, crown molding, baseboards and flooring.
How to choose the right gutter system:
Steel, aluminum, vinyl and copper are the most common materials on the market. Many types of rain gutters are sold in 10? pieces and require dozens of seams and slip fittings. Each seam represents a weak spot for a potential leak. This is not to necessarily discourage a buyer from these types of materials, as copper does provide a very appealing aesthetic look. Just consider the rain gutter cleaning cost in Vancouver, WA and gutter maintenance involved with those types of gutter installations.
It may come as a surprise that even seamless gutters have seams. Although, these seams are only in the corners and down spouts. As a result, these areas have strong reinforcements and are fastened more securely. In addition to these precaution, extra sealant is applied from the inside of rain gutters where they are not visible, making the rain gutters system a completely sealed and truly seamless gutter system.

When choosing the right materials or system, consider these important elements:
- The amount of rain fall in the region
