You’ve heard it said but never known: why are seamless gutters better for your Denver-area home? Perhaps you’ve seen those segmented gutter bits and pieces in the big-box do-it-yourself (DIY) store and wondered if they are any good and if you could put them up yourself. We know of three reasons to go with custom-fitted, seamless gutters.
1 — Easy Installation
Tempting as those downspouts, K-style lengths, connectors, end caps, hangers and brackets seem, gutters should never be a DIY project. The thin-metal, flimsy segmented gutters you can buy at that big-box home improvement store will never hold up to Colorado’s winters. All those seams mean a lot of leaks. Installing gutters is difficult, even if you somehow have all the right tools and ladders.
Professional installation of seamless gutters is easier on everyone. You need not risk yourself on ladders, your home will be better protected, and the seamless gutters will eliminate all those seams! You call your friendly, local contractor and schedule installation; that’s it! Your skilled installers custom-fit the gutters with high precision to fit your home.
2 — Aesthetics
Seamless gutters installed by highly trained technicians will complement your Denver-area home’s beauty, not detract from it. With fewer seams and joints than traditional (segmented) gutters, seamless gutters can be installed in your choice of colors. You can highlight your trim color, harmonize your roofing color, or match your siding color.
Properly installed seamless gutters boost your home’s curb appeal. They look sleek and clean, sweeping across your house between roof and sides.
3 — Durable
Seamless gutters installed by trained contractors attach to your home with strong, properly spaced brackets. They withstand the various loads gutters take: water, snow and ice, leaves and twigs. They outlast seamed, traditional gutters, says Forbes. They are also less prone to leaks and damage than segmented gutters.
Seamless gutters require far less maintenance than segmented gutters. You have to keep debris out of them, but you never have to worry about clogs, leaks, and overflows from anything caught on segment connectors and seams.
