Prevent Leaks With Seamless Gutter and Gutter Guard Helmets
One of the main and most important benefits of seamless gutter systems is that they helps prevent leaks. Traditional gutters with joints have more of a tendency to leak at the joints and seals over time. Weight from the rain and snow can also weaken the joints and cause leaks. Over time, gutter leaks can cause damage to your home’s siding, foundation and landscaping. The leaks can also cause puddles of water to accumulate exactly where you don’t want them – on your patio, along the foundation, and other places where you walk.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, do not have this problem. These gutters are made from one continuous piece of guttering customized to fit the length of your home. As a result, there are no joints or connections that can weaken and start to leak. When installed professionally, seamless gutters reduce the chance of water leaking around you home and causing inconvenient puddles or major damages.
As for how this is possible, Seamless Gutter Systems utilize a special machine that folds a continuous roll of the gutter material that fits your particular gutter profile. In the end, the only seams you have are where your downspouts and corners are.
Gutters protect your home from its worst enemy – water. If your gutters are old, damaged, missing parts or improperly installed, poor rainwater drainage can lead to expensive remedial bills which cannot be ignored.
Seamless gutters offer many advantages over the traditional gutter system. They are cut and bent from a single piece of material resulting in fewer seams or joints where problem leaks often occur. Seamless gutters are custom fit for each specific home and generally require less maintenance lasting years longer.

Minnesota Leafless Gutters and Gutter Guards
If you do not want to have to deal with gutter cleaning twice a year or if you do not want the chore to be as hard to complete, one option is to install some kind of gutter protection or gutter guard systems.
One very popular system for gutter protection is one based on the water adhesion principle. A guard extends from your roof over your gutters to the edge and leaves only a small opening precisely engineered to allow only water to enter your gutters. The surface tension of the water makes it adhere to the gutter protection system longer than the debris and as the debris falls over the edge and falls away, the water enters the gutter system and is carried safely away by your downspouts. They can be installed with your new seamless gutter system or onto your existing gutters, in most cases. If it were not for the adhesive properties of water, this type of gutter protection would not work. Therefore you would have to use screen or mesh gutter guards instead.
