As we know, eavestroughs are essential for protecting your home against water damage. However, without them, or with old, cracked eavestroughs, rain and melting snow can pool around your home and can weaken the siding and foundation. If you notice this happening to you, it may be time to invest in replacement eavestroughs. Before you decide on which type is best for you, learn what you should know about seamless eavestroughs from our installation experts.
What are Seamless Eavestroughs?
Seamless eavestroughs are made from a single piece of metal that is custom fit to your home’s measurements. Unlike traditional eavestroughs, which are made from multiple pieces joined together, seamless eavestroughs are formed on-site to fit the exact dimensions of your roofline. This unique seamless design means that your gutters will be less prone to leaking, as leaks occur most commonly at the seams.
The Benefits of Seamless Eavestroughs
One of the most significant benefits of seamless eavestroughs is their durability. Because they are made from a single piece of metal, there are no seams that can weaken over time and cause leaks. Seamless eavestroughs are also less likely to clog, as there are no seams for leaves, sticks, or other debris to get caught in.
Seamless eavestroughs also have a more streamlined appearance than traditional eavestroughs. The absence of seams creates a sleek, uniform look that blends seamlessly with your home’s exterior.
Installation of Seamless Eavestroughs
The installation of seamless eavestroughs is not a DIY project. To ensure a perfect fit and to minimize the risk of leaks, a professional eavestrough installer will measure your home’s roofline and custom cut the eavestroughs on-site. Then, the installer will attach the eavestroughs to your home’s fascia providing a tight hold that blends seamlessly with your home’s exterior.
Maintenance of Seamless Eavestroughs
While seamless eavestroughs require less maintenance than traditional eavestroughs, they still require some upkeep to ensure optimal performance. It is recommended to have your eavestroughs professionally cleaned 1-2 times a year to remove debris and prevent clogs. Additionally, it is important to have your eavestroughs regularly inspected for signs of damage, such as cracks or sagging, and to address any issues promptly by having your eavestroughs repaired to prevent further damage.
