Sectional Gutters vs. Seamless Gutters

The Importance of Seamless Gutters

Are you thinking about purchasing new gutters for your home? The decision of whether to buy a seamless gutter or a sectional gutter system can be a major one. It’s important to know the difference between both. Without proper gutters, excess rainwater can build up and around your foundation. You could have issues with water damage to your structure, roof, and ceiling. If you need help determining the best gutter system for your home, here are some important differences between sectional and seamless gutters.

Years ago, only sectional gutters were sold on the market. Installing sectional gutters were an easy, inexpensive DIY job that didn’t require special equipment. Sectional gutters consist of smaller pre-cut sections and pieces,  then joined together during installation.

Although sectional gutters are less expensive and easy to install, they have several drawbacks.

  • They are prone to debris accumulations. Leaves and other types of debris can clog them, requiring more cleaning and maintenance compared to seamless gutters.
  • They are more susceptible to leaks since sections are pieced together with connectors and sealant.
  • Fewer available colors

Today, seamless gutters are gaining popularity due to these drawbacks. Because of their continuous design, seamless gutters are less susceptible to leaks and water issues. They only use one single piece that looks more attractive than gutters with joints and fasteners.

Our office needed a new roof after a hail storm damaged to the point where we began to have roof leaks. After having a great experience, we hired them to redo a flat roof on one of our other office locations.
