Things Aren’t Always What They SEAMS?

The rain gutters and downspouts are your home’s drainage system. Any obstruction in this system could leave you looking at a potential source of flooding or other costly damage, such as mildew. Most modern homes need gutters in order to properly channel water from your roof away from your house.
Once upon a time, practically the only way gutters were made was using steel pieces that were soldered together using welding torches. All that changed with the invention of aluminum gutters that required little more than snap-on fasteners and elbow grease to go up. The great advantage of these lightweight, rust-resistant gutters is that they could be installed without difficulty, often in the space of an afternoon. The disadvantage, however, was leaking. Sections snapped together, but often times the seams weren’t water-tight and during a heavy rain, water would find its way out through these cracks.
Rain gutters are made to catch water that falls from the roof, and drain that water through their downspouts out and away from the house itself. Leaks that occur in the gutter system make it so that the water doesn’t make it to the downspouts! This can quickly lead to major problems at the structural level of your home, defacing the exterior of your house. Even minor leaks may eventually erode the fasteners that hold the gutters to the roof, creating a serious hazard!
Thankfully we’ve come up with a solution to help eliminate leaky gutter seams – seamless aluminum rain gutters! They work essentially like their traditional counterparts, with one major difference – they are cut and bent from a single piece of tubing. To be precise, seamless gutters are not completely seamless. The gutters do actually have seams at the corners of the house. But with professional installation, these corners can be properly installed and sealed to prevent leakage.
Probably the greatest advantage to seamless gutters is that they minimize the amount of maintenance you need to perform every season. Depending on the configuration you’ve chosen – adding gutter screens is sometimes recommended – you may be able to get away with many months of consistent use without any major cleaning. They come in a wide variety of colors to match your home, and they can withstand heat without becoming brittle in the San Fernando Valley sun, and they will not rust with precipitation along the ocean in Malibu.
