One of the first questions you may ask yourself if you are considering to replace or install new gutters to your home is whether the traditional sectional style or seamless option is right for you.
To get to this conclusion, you first need to understand the differences between each type, and what makes sense for you. Regardless of what you choose, the most important thing is that you are selecting a gutter system that works and keeps your home and roof safe from damage, leaks and costly problems. A good protection system from rain and other water sources can also keep your landscaping from being damaged.
But let the professionals at Williamson Gutters help you learn about the various styles and their benefits for you.
Most families and homeowners are familiar with this more traditional style because of its lower cost. These are composed of smaller, pre-cut metal pieces that are connected at the joints or seams by sealing, soldering or snapping them together. Typically, these gutters come in 10-foot pieces, so once it is installed, it is a long span of fitted sections that covers the length of the house.
Yet, low cost does not always mean top quality. The downside of this sectional style is that the joints, or pieces that connect everything together, can be more susceptible to weakening and damage. Over time, when it is exposed to extreme heat, dryness or varying weather – its durability is compromised which means it can develop cracks or rust, or can separate and break.
