Upgrading to seamless gutters is one of the best investments you can make for your home, but you may have some questions before you move forward with this project, especially the following:

Do Seamless Gutters Cost More?

It is highly doubtful that seamless gutters would cost the same as sectional ones, which means you should reconsider if a contractor offers almost the same price. Seamless gutters generally cost more because they require trained installers and specialized equipment to build and install. The resulting gutters also have longer expected lifespans, thanks to their relatively lower maintenance requirements.

Do They Come in Different Colors?

Sheet metal is compatible with virtually any kind of coating, which means you can pick any gutter color that will complement your exterior color palette. Seamless gutters typically come in factory-applied colors, though they can be painted any time after installation. Ask your gutter installer if they offer custom factory-applied colors if you already have a specific color in mind.

Of What Are Seamless Gutters Made?

Standard seamless gutters are made of galvanized steel, the same type of metal used for manufacturing standing seam metal roofing. It has a proven track record as a durable and weather-resistant material that can withstand impact from hail and airborne debris. Seamless gutters can also be made of aluminum if you prefer a corrosion-resistant option.

What Are the Benefits of Seamless Gutters?

Seamless gutter troughs are more than an aesthetic improvement. Common gutter problems typically occur at the joints and seams, often from worn-out caulking. There are far less chances of these problems happening on seamless gutters. When paired with an effective gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet®, you can have a virtually maintenance-free gutter system.

How Are They Installed?

One of the main differences of seamless gutter installation is that no sections of gutters will be delivered to your home. Rather, a roll of pre-coated sheet metal will be shaped and cut on-site, using a specialized machine. Then, the entire gutter length will be fastened to the roof’s fascia board and capped at the ends.
