vinyl gutters

I need to install new gutters and I would like to do the work myself. How do they compare to the seemless gutters?

They don't. Seamless is the best gutter you can get, but they're not DIY. To that end, gutters are one of the few times I recommend hiring the job done.

DIY Gutters

I also was going to install my own gutters (Vinyl) but, I heard to many horrible downfalls about the longevity of those vinyl gutters. Heres the kicker I called about 6 gutter (seamless) contractors they all came in about 100 dollars more than the supplies would have cost to do them my self. Way worth my time and aggrevation, I suggest you pull a couple quotes.

I agree. There is NO comparison between the two. Vinyl will leak after a period of time. The sun takes it toll on them. I installed vinyl gutters on a garage due to the fact that it was only two 24 foot runs with downspouts. In the summer, they twisted and bowed downwards causing the water to puddle in them. They cracked the following winter. Good luck.
