Is that just available to contractors?

Try a building supply house. That's where contractors go.

Call a seamless gutter company and let them do it for you - almost always the best way to go! If you did buy longer lengths how would you transport them and not damage them? The seamless gutter guys make the gutters on site.

I agree. By the time you go to the store and gather what you think is all the stuff you need, transport it home, get some volunteer help, set up ladders/scaffolding, put the pieces together so they don't leak, seamless gutter guys will be back at their shop and will have installed a non leaking system.

NOW, this is a DIY site, and far be it for me to not advocate it, but you have to know your limitations.

i was going to do seamless in front and seamed in back myself to save money. After cost analysis and time involved just getting the seamless on both was actually cheaper and easier for me.
