3 Key Differences Between Standard & Seamless Gutters, Dothan, Alabama

Gutters play a crucial role in directing rainwater away from the house, but homeowners are often uncertain about which type of gutter they should choose. Seamless gutters have seen a noticeable rise in popularity in recent years, in part due to their distinct design differences. Here’s a closer look at some of the ways seamless gutters stand out from traditional design.

Seamless Gutters vs. Standard Gutters

1. Durability

Because seamless gutters come in large, single sections that run along the entire length of the roof, there are hardly any seams to be found in these installations—typically, they’re only located at the downspout or at corners. With fewer seams, there are fewer areas where a leak could occur due to deteriorating connecting materials. As a result, seamless gutters tend to have a much longer lifespan than their traditional counterparts.

2. Performance

If not cleaned regularly, these clogs can cause wood rot, corrosion, and other water-related damage. By preventing clogs, you will be able to avoid many household maintenance issues.

3. Cost

Due to their superior performance and more complicated manufacturing process, seamless gutters tend to be more expensive than a standard gutter system. Nor can these gutters be installed by a DIY handyman—you’ll need the help of a professional contractor. However, long-term savings can easily balance out the higher upfront expenses.
