What are seamless gutters?
Seamless gutters, also known as continuous rain gutters, are the most popular choice of gutter installation. In fact, almost 80% of homeowners throughout the nation choose to improve their homes with seamless gutters. Their popularity stems from the fact that they are by and large the most effective system to collect and channel rainwater from your roof off of your property.
What to look for:
Seamless gutters are the most effective system to collect and properly channel rainwater from your roof off 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 the interior of your home. The most common issues are damaging walls, sheetrock, crown molding, baseboards, and flooring.
Leaf guards are the perfect way to complement your seamless gutter system.
The main reason homeowners choose to add leaf guards to their gutter system is due to the high amount of leaves and debris falling onto the roof and gutters. If your home isn’t subject to heavy leaf fall, you may even need leaf guards.
A beautiful way to protect your foundation!
French drains are an elegant and effective way to drain rainwater away from your foundation. While your gutter acts to move water away from your roof, french drains act in turn by moving that water away from the foundation. If you find that an area in your yard seems to collect or hold water, installing a french drain could be a good option to both protect your home and beautify your yard.
Traditional downspouts end at the base where the gutter meets the foundation (example in the top left picture above). When using these traditional downspouts, it becomes necessary to have either a concrete or plastic splash guard at the base. This prevents rainwater from washing out the soil. Unfortunately, these splash guards usually come with their own brand of problems. Plastic splash guards are too light and can move or be blown away in the wind. And oddly enough, concrete splash guards can actually cause water to gather and cause serious maintenance issues such as mold, insects and moist soil. In conclusion, French Drains are the best solution for downspouts that easily get over-flooded.
