Standard Gutters Vs Seamless GuttersModern technology has brought these systems into the 21st Century. Mid Century machines were developed that could create seamless gutters from solid pieces of aluminum or steel; their durability and reliability remain unparalleled. Seamless gutters offer many advantages over regular or sectional systems.

Clogging: At the beginning and end of sections, debris can block water flow into gutters causing it to overflow, leading to serious damage to your home’s exterior, foundation, and ground surfaces. Every 10-20 feet, gutters are sewn to prevent water and debris contact, seamless gutters feature two seams only at their ends where caps can be attached. Seamless gutter systems reduce the likelihood of clogs dramatically; however, to fully eliminate clogs you’ll require regular gutter cleaning as well as gutter protectors.

Leaks and spillage: Water seeping over seams that have been fastened together using nails or screws causes their joints to wear down, separate, and eventually break, leading to leaks and spills in your home or business. Minnesota Leafless Gutters specializes in seamless rain gutter installation using rivets instead of nails or screws, so leaks don’t pose an issue. Our seamless metal pieces ensure there is only ever one continuous metal piece to worry about!

Bugs and stagnant water: Clogs in gutters hold back water that would normally pass through, trapping organic materials in pools that attract mosquitos, pests, and other insects – but this issue won’t arise with seamless gutter systems that prevent backups.

Corrosion: Gutter guards have protective coatings designed to prevent corrosion of metal parts by water. Rainwater may erode metal by dislodging protective coating from gutter joints; seamless gutters have reduced risk of rusting and decaying due to being seamless.

Style: Seamless gutters come in an assortment of colors that resist fading. Unfortunately, sectional gutters are susceptible to fading, flaking, and scratching over time and need regular painting services for best results.

Lifespan: With proper maintenance, gutters should last 10-20 years depending on the material chosen for seamless gutters which could last anywhere between 25-50 years depending on their material choice.
