If you’re planning to have a new gutter installation soon, you may want to consider seamless gutters for your home. To help you better understand them, we come bearing answers to some of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about the gutter option.
“What Are Seamless Gutters Made Of?”
They’re made of galvanized steel. This material is heavier and stronger than their aluminum or vinyl counterparts that are also available in the market, as well as are more resistant to damage from the weight of snow and ice.
“What Kind of Benefits Do They Offer?”
Any professional residential and commercial roofer would often recommend seamless gutters since for their minimal maintenance as compared to their pieced-together counterparts, while also withstanding extreme temperature fluctuations and high winds better than gutters with joints. And depending on the manufacturer, seamless gutters are also offered up to 25 different colors to match your home. So, if you’re planning to install gutters in designer colors, you should go for seamless to make your home stand out.
“How Are Seamless Gutters Installed?”
When you hire us to install your seamless gutters, we’ll manufacture and assemble them in your yard using a special machine which can only be transported via large truck or trailer. This enables us to make the gutters fit your home so that they’ll tie into your existing drainage system. Once formed, the long pieces are hoisted up to your roofline through the use of ladders leaning up against your home for our workers to use while installing them.
While held there, we’ll screw them into place using a drill, so expect some hammering and the drill noises. Otherwise, the sound of the gutter machine is pretty quiet. The installation should take only a few hours if there aren’t any complications.
