A seamless gutter is the most popular style of guttering on residential homes in our region. The term “seamless” can often be confusing to homeowners because, in fact, there are seams in the gutters! However, the seams are found only at the ends of the gutter, or where a downspout is located.
The seamless gutter itself is a continuous piece of metal (most commonly, aluminum or copper), that not only is durable, but aesthetically pleasing as well. By using one continuous piece of metal, the possibility of leaks is greatly reduced. Additionally, the baked-on enamel finish (for aluminum gutters) never requires painting, and it protects your home and landscaping.
Which metals can be used for gutters?
Aluminum and copper are the most common types of metals that gutters are made from. Many color options are available to you when choosing aluminum gutters. The image shown here is what a typical gutter looks like. This is called a K-style gutter.
