Is your home ready for seamless gutters?
If you’re getting gutters, is it time to go seamless? During the fall and winter months, your gutters need to protect your home from the elements. They can’t get clogged, and they need to flow easily even during heavy rain, snow, and during a storm. Seamless gutters help your roof system manage the flow of water successfully, no matter what the weather brings.
What Are Seamless Gutters?
What does a gutter look like? When you think of gutters, you may think about those sections of metal trough that you can buy at the local home renovation store. Those are gutters, but they’re not the only gutter product out there. Seamless gutters are often made from aluminum, but they can be made of materials such as copper as well. They’re custom-made at your home, and your gutter contractor will make sure that they fit.
Overflowing gutters can cause expensive damage to your home. For example, you could experience the following costs:
Landscaping costs due to erosion: $100-$1000
New gutters and downspouts due to damage: $1000+
Rotten siding due to leaks: $1,500+
New fascia and soffits due to leaks: $2500+
Flooded basement: $5,000+
Cracked and shifting foundations: $6,000+
