In recent years, seamless gutters have taken the roofing industry by storm, as an easy, low maintenance and durable alternative to traditional gutters. Still, we often see confusion about the benefits of seamless gutters. At Over the Top Roofing and Restoration, we feel part of our job is to provide homeowners with the information they need to make confident decisions when choosing one of the many options available to them. As your gutters experts in Milwaukee and Menomonee Falls, Over the Top Roofing is here with all the information you need about seamless gutters.
Seamless rain gutters are just as the name implies – seamless. There are no breaks in the construction of the gutter. Seams cause leaks, and even tightly sealed seams will eventually leak. For this reason alone, seamless gutters are the most popular type of gutter available. This is why they are the most popular type of gutter today.
Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum, but they can be made from copper. Over the Top specializes in seamless aluminum gutters. Aluminum is highly durable, won’t rust, is relatively easy to work with and inexpensive. Our talented gutter craftsmen will custom make your gutters to your home on-site with our seamless gutter machine, ensuring a proper fit that will last for decades.
Conventional gutters are formed from prefabricated sections of guttering that are pieced together to approximate the fit around your home. Pieced together with snap-in-place connectors, these gutters leave many opportunities for leaks, which certainly will develop after some time. The leaks don’t just cause inefficiencies in your gutter’s performance, they will eventually rot the wood adjacent to your gutters, causing large scale problems to your roof and soffit area. Seamless gutters ensure many years of leak-free performance, protecting your home and saving you money in the long run.
Another advantage of seamless aluminum gutters is that they are much more attractive, with a much simpler appearance than the cobbled-together look of traditional gutters. Your gutters should blend into your home and not be noticed, and seamless gutters excel at that feat. With a baked-on enamel finish, your new seamless gutters will likely never need painting. With many colors to choose from, you’ll find a perfect match easily, and you’ll love the lack of maintenance involved in maintaining their good looks. Perhaps best of all, seamless gutters go up quick. Most Over the Top seamless gutter installation projects take only one day.
