Pros and Cons of Seamless Aluminum Gutters Pros and Cons of Seamless Aluminum Gutters
Seamless aluminum gutters are one of the most popular choices in home gutter systems. They offer a longer life, simple installation and curb appeal. If you are considering seamless aluminum gutters, here are a few things you should know.
Seamless gutters are simple to install, but are generally not a DIY job. They require several people to put in place since they aren't sectioned out. Even with this requirement, the installation will take a minimal amount of time and is relatively inexpensive.
Aluminum gutters are known for their durability. Having the seamless variety also promises additional years added to the lifetime. Since you don't have to worry about joints or seams becoming worn, you can expect the seamless aluminum gutters to last for quite a bit longer than other varieties, with an average life expectancy of more than 30 years. The one downside to seamless aluminum is that aluminum can get dented with falling debris and heavy storms. Although you can overlook small dings, larger dings will require some work to pull the dings out.
While there are more expensive gutter options than seamless aluminum, there are also cheaper options. Seamless gutters all have to be custom since they aren't put together in sections, and this can increase the cost. Most manufacturers will offer a free quote if you have the dimensions of your home.
