Seamless Gutters in Lehigh Valley, PA

What exactly do seamless gutters do? We make rain gutters on-site using equipment that is attached to a service vehicle. The reason for this is simple: there are no seams. After being carefully measured, they are put in place all at once.

The Brothers that just do Gutters use copper, aluminum, and galvalume to make seamless gutters. They also come in a half-round shape and a K-shaped shape.

Seamless Gutters VS. DIY Gutters

When we talk about gutters that you can put up yourself, we mean sectional gutters. For seamless gutters, you need a guttering machine made for professionals. Sectional gutters are different from gutters that you put together yourself because they have seams and are put together piece by piece.

There are four main differences between gutters that you put together yourself and gutters that are made of one piece.

  • Installation
  • Security And Strength
  • Repair Ability
  • Cost

Installing A Gutter System

The installation is the change that stands out the most. On-site seamless gutters are made by rolling a metal sheet through equipment that makes gutters. To keep it in place, the installer runs it down the side of the house.

Installing gutters that come in pieces takes a lot more time and work. Most gutters are made of vinyl or plastic and come in pieces. Because you can’t roll these materials, you don’t see them as often as seamless gutters. Installing a sectional gutter system takes a lot more time because each piece has to be cut and glued into place.

Security And Strengths

Since there are no miters joining the parts of seamless gutters, they tend to last longer. When there are more gutter seams, the chance of a leak goes up. Because of how their parts are made, sectional gutters are also less durable and more likely to get broken.

Repair Ability

A seamless system is harder to keep up with because it needs to be rebuilt in its entirety from time to time. This is something that always happens when fixing something. But the gutter system can be fixed if it comes loose from the house.

Cost Comparison

It looks like seamless gutters cost more than gutters with sections. Installing sectional gutters, on the other hand, costs about the same because there are more parts, caulk, and tools involved. Since homeowners are more likely to put up sectional gutters, they are not as strong or likely to last as long as seamless gutters. This might cause prices to go up in the future.

Size Of Seamless Aluminum Gutters

A 5-inch seamless aluminum gutter is widely used in some areas of the country however, 6-inch gutters and 7-inch gutters are becoming increasingly popular. Seamless aluminum gutters also come in even larger sizes, which are typically industrial or commercial-style gutters.

The differences between 5-inch, 6-inch, and 7-inch gutters are their size, and the capacity of water they can hold. In cases where you often experience heavy rainfall and/or rainwater is continually overshooting your gutter system, a 6” gutter or 7″ gutter system may be the best for your home.

In addition to climate; the roofline, surface area, and pitch of your roof are important factors in determining if you should install a 5-inch, 6-inch, or 7-inch gutter system. Interchanging two different sizes of gutter within the same gutter system can also be a cost-effective solution for areas of your home needing higher capacity.
