There’s nothing like a lush green Minnesota backyard in the summertime while the world is alive with nature’s bounty. But by the time fall comes around, all of those lovely leaves can add up to household chores like raking the lawn and gutter maintenance.
If your gutters are damaged or broken, water pooling near your house is the least of our concerns. Damaged gutters can lead to a host of home maintenance problems that can cost you money down the road.
But with seamless gutters, you’ll never have to worry about broken gutters. In this post from Window World Twin Cities, we’re breaking down every reason you should consider investing in seamless gutters. Give us a call to schedule your seamless gutter installation today!
Gutters and Your Home
Most homeowners don’t put a lot of thought into their gutter systems, and they can be easy to overlook or ignore until there’s a problem. But an attractive gutter system is part of a beautiful home and essential to diverting water away from your roof and foundation.
By moving water away from your home, gutters protect your home from a wide range of problems, including:
● Foundation damage
● Landscape erosion
● Warped siding
● Window damage
● And more
When gutters are clean, attractive, and functional, they blend in with your home and roof neatly. However, when they’re sagging, clogged, worn out, broken, or faded, they detract from your home’s curb appeal.
Sectional Gutter Problems
Rain gutters have been used for millennia and date back to as early as 2500 B.C. Although they briefly went out of use in the middle ages, they came back into use by the Normans during the 13th century. Many of these early gutters were made from wood or lead and were manufactured in ten to 20-foot sections.
Today’s sectional gutters are manufactured using a variety of materials including steel, vinyl, copper, and aluminum. But no matter what material is used in a gutter system’s construction, the joints where two canal sections connect represent a point of vulnerability. Metal gutters tend to rust over time and eventually fail. Vinyl gutters, on the other hand, are likely to fail at the joints due to their lightweight material.
All of these forces can cause your gutter joints to deteriorate or become vulnerable over time:
● Solar UV damage
● Snow loads
● Heavy rain
Reasons to Invest in Seamless Gutters
Unlike traditional sectional gutters, seamless gutters are manufactured using a continuous piece of metal. They’re much more durable than sectional gutters and far less likely to leak or become clogged, especially when combined with leafproof gutter covers. The single-canal design of seamless gutters makes them far stronger and more rigid than sectional gutters.
At Window World, we use a mobile gutter machine to custom fit your new seamless gutters to your home. With no seams, you won’t have to worry about rusty joints and dripping, leaking gutters.
Our seamless gutters are available in 12 colors and matching downspout colors that match the color of your home’s siding and fascia. Baked-on enamel paint will never fade, peel, or need to be repainted. Our seamless gutters also come with hidden hangers and rain diverters to complete the seamless look. And all of our gutter installations come with a five-year installation guarantee.
These are just a few reasons to invest in seamless gutters:
1. They’re easy to maintain.
Seamless gutters are much easier to clean than traditional sectional gutters. And because of their durable enamel paint, you won’t have to worry about discoloration or peeling over time.
2. Your home will be safer.
With leak-prone sectional gutters, your home is more susceptible to issues like rust, mold, roof damage, rot, and siding damage. Seamless gutters are a worry-free alternative.
3. You’ll save in the long run.
Although seamless gutters require a higher initial investment, they last much longer and require less spending on maintenance as time goes by. They’ll also add to your home’s value.
