Seamless vs. Sectional Rain Gutters: Know The Difference
A rain gutter is one of the most significant components of your home. The basic purpose of a rain gutter is to prevent water from accumulating on the roof and damaging your walls and its foundation, thereby protecting your home or building from water damage.
There are two basic types of gutters: seamless or sectional.
As the name suggests, a sectional gutter consists of various sections. Each section is joined to form a rain gutter. The sections are almost 10 feet long and are joined together with connectors.
However, sectional gutters are not as reliable as seamless gutters. A sectional gutter is prone to breakage and leaks, especially during windy conditions. Since all the sections are connected, cracks in a single section can break off the whole gutter. Sectional gutters are typically made from steel, vinyl and aluminum.
A seamless gutter is a single-piece gutter. The gutter is connected on the corners of a home and at downspout locations.
Manufactured from aluminum, seamless gutters are robust and long lasting. They are available in a wide range of colors, allowing you to match the gutter color to your home’s decor. Seamless gutters also look neater than sectional gutters because they don’t have visible joints and fasteners.
The biggest advantage of seamless gutters is that they can fully protect your home’s exterior and foundation, all year long. They don’t clog or leak as easily as sectional gutters and require fewer repairs.
A seamless gutter can be customized to fit your roof and residential property. This type of gutter system is a worthwhile investment that can preserve your home’s exterior and foundation for years.
