Seamless Gutters

When it comes to rain gutters, The Brothers install two different types of gutters – seamless and sectional. Choosing between seamless gutters or sectional gutters has more to do with the choice in the gutter style and gutter material. Most homes use aluminum k-style gutters. When a professional gutter installer, like The Brothers, install aluminum k-style gutters, they will typically only install a seamless gutter system. There are a few differences between sectional and seamless gutters. The biggest difference between the seamless and sectional gutter systems has to do with how they are installed but there are also cost and maintenance differences too.

Seamless rain gutters can only be formed from a metal material, such as aluminum. Vinyl, plastic, or any other gutter material will be sold in sections. A seamless gutter is fabricated on site using a gutter forming machine. The gutter machine bends and forms a roll of aluminum into a seamless rain gutter. Every seamless gutter is measured to custom fit the area where the gutter will be installed. When sectional gutters are installed, they must be joined together to form a gutter run. The joints are sealed using a sealing agent. In aluminum, galvanized, and galvalume gutter systems, this agent is a silicon or caulk. The only time The Brothers use a silicon on a gutter system is when we are installing half-round gutters in galvanized or galvalume. All our copper gutter sections are soldered together.

Seamless gutters can add a cost savings benefit to your gutter job and save on maintenance of the system. Because they are measured for the home they are being installed on, there is less waste of gutter material. It is quicker to install a seamless gutter than it is to install a sectional gutter system. As a sectional gutter system is installed, each section must be mitered of sealed together. This additional work takes more time to install. Seamless gutters are typically easier to pitch. Although The Brothers that just do Gutters use a silicon caulk that will most likely outlast your gutter system, not having sealed sections is a better solution. We also offer half-round seamless gutters.

Most homes will use a standard 5” seamless gutter but it has become more common to install a bigger gutter. In cases where heavy rainfall and rain water runoff is overflowing the gutter system, it is better to install 6” oversized seamless gutters. Standard and oversized gutters can be interchanged within the same gutter job. Using a standard or oversized gutter depends on your roof line, surface area, and pitch. Here are some ways that you can determine whether you will need standard 5” gutters or the 6” oversized gutters. If you are not sure whether you need new gutters, or a simple repair to your current gutter system please visit the Warning Signs portion of our website.
