Seamless gutters play an important role in weather-proofing your house. Installing them will keep the water flowing with less risk of cracks and clogs. Plus, they fit your roofline perfectly. Call now and learn why we recommend them as an important part of our rain gutter services.
There are two ways to create channels across your eaves: the first is in sections that are joined together in various ways; the second is free of seams and offers continuous, unbroken protection. It is virtually leak-proof! Even better, we make them right on your property for true convenience and a foolproof custom fit.
What are Seamless Gutters?
Whether your roofline is 20 feet, 40 feet, even 100 feet across, you can get lightweight metal gutters made in a single piece. They look beautiful on your home, eliminate unsightly seams, and greatly reduce the chance of leaks.
The fabrication is done on-site using a portable extrusion machine. Large coils of high quality metal are fed into this advanced machine, and new gutters come out ready on the other end. It takes only minutes to get protection that is unique to your Birmingham home.
Available in a range of designer colors and baked-on finishes, seamless gutters offer a wealth of benefits that we are proud to offer you. It is the perfect replacement gutter.
When we install seamless gutters, the length will fit perfectly, the profile and width will be exactly what you need with no waiting or special ordering and there are almost no seams to catch debris, so there is very little in the way of gutter repair to worry about.
The only seams and fasteners in these gutters are at corners and where they meet the downspouts. That means there are far fewer places where anything can potentially impede the free flow of water.
All of our rain gutters are designed to be as hassle-free as possible; but when you work with an unbroken length of tubing for each horizontal edge, the benefits become clear. For even greater protection, we recommend adding gutter screens –also known as gutter covers – to further safeguard your channels from things like leaves, twigs, pine needles and animal nests.
Many of our Birmingham area customers are pleasantly surprised to see not only that their system works for years without problems, but the inner lining stays clean for years.
The Sturdiest Materials
Seamless gutters are cut and shaped on-site using metals that are very durable and yet are easy to form:
Aluminum Gutters – A lightweight, corrosion-proof material that can be coated or painted in many designer colors. They are joined only at corners using little more than special fasteners.
Copper Gutters – Seams are soldered together in this type of gutter installation, making it a home improvement choice that can last a lifetime. However, copper is also quite costly.
These metals are more long-lasting than vinyl, and won’t rust like galvanized steel. They are considered the gold standard of rain gutters!
All of our seamless gutters are hung securely to the roof edge, giving you an added measure of security and superior functioning. We angle and install them for proper drainage and secure the right type of downspout. The goal is to keep water moving down your roof and away from your property.
Good runoff and drainage are important because standing moisture is very damaging. It can wear out your roof, get behind walls, flood basements and cause harmful mold to form. Seamless channels offer high quality protection by removing damp debris from your shingles.
Installing seamless gutters in Birmingham cost slightly more than the conventional sectional type, but many of our customers consider it an investment that is very worthwhile. You get less maintenance, great looks and a perfect fit for your house.
Of course, it is important to do common sense maintenance such as a gutter cleaning a few times a year. Or, for maintenance-free protection, let us install our gutter guards. They are a great solution, especially if you have trees overhanging your roof, and they protect your investment.
