By June 22, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Which is Better – Sectional or Seamless?

As the name suggests, sectional gutters come in small sections of material that are fitted together. They are cheaper since they don’t require specialized equipment for installation. Their multiple seams, however, make them susceptible to leaks.

Meanwhile, seamless gutters are one continuous piece of material. They have a low risk of leaks since they only have joints at the corners and where the gutters meet the downspouts. They are also custom-made to smoothly fit your home’s structure, and their superior performance will safeguard your home from water damage. As one of the trusted Gutter Helmet dealers, we highly recommend this gutter type for your home.

How Much Rain Do I Get?

Before buying new gutters, you need to know the amount of water the system has to manage. Check the average rainfall in your area and measure the square footage of your roof. This will help you determine how much water you get and how much surface area your gutters have to drain. Gutters are usually available in widths of five, six, and seven inches, and each inch adds cost. We can recommend you the perfect gutter size suitable for your area.

What Gutter Material Works Best for Me?

Gutters are available in various materials, including copper, aluminum, vinyl, and galvanized steel. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. For instance, galvanized steel is durable and affordable, but it rusts over time. Meanwhile, copper is appealing and will never rust, but it’s more expensive to install. When unsure of your choices, we can offer you the right material that suits your needs and budget.
