Gutters are a very important part of your home’s roof. Gutters help keep your home safe and dry, and they can help the outdoor structural features of your home last longer. There are two different types of gutters, and there is a difference between seamless gutters and sectional gutters.
Molandes roofing specializes in seamless gutters, but there are two main types of gutters available to people. There are many differences between the two, and here is why we specialize in seamless gutters.
Sectional gutters are prefabricated sections of the gutter system that are connected by seams. They are an inexpensive way to protect your roof system and the siding on your home, but there are more problems associated with this type of gutter. The sections of the gutter system can become easily clogged with leaves and debris.
Texas has many large beautiful trees, but their leaves can cause problems for sectional gutters. If the leaves of your favorite front yard tree fall on the roof, then when it rains they will be washed into the gutter. Each seam of the sectional gutter system is at risk for leaks and clogs. Leaves can catch on the seams and cause clogs, which doesn’t sound like a huge problem but it can certainly become a larger problem.
Clogs prevent the water from draining out of the gutter down the spout, which strains the gutter. If the debris and water are left in the gutter, the water can rust the seams out and cause leaks. The longer the water and debris sit in the gutter, the more problems you should expect. Not to mention, stagnant water attracts mosquitoes. Each problem with sectional gutters compounds and will cause larger problems.
The difference between seamless gutters and sectional gutters is significant. This is why we specialize in seamless gutters. Seamless gutters are made from a single piece of metal, meaning no seams for debris to catch on and cause other problems.
All gutters are at risk of clogs and leaks, but the absence of seams minimizes the risk of clogs and leaks. No seams mean there’s no interruption on the smooth metal piece, so there’s less of a problem with a section of gutter clogging up. This also means there’s no risk of a leak springing out from a seam.
You can also avoid mosquitos finding a home and laying eggs in the stagnant water in your gutter, because there won’t be any standing water for them to get cozy in. Avoid mosquitoes and other problems with seamless gutters.
Seamless gutters are also much more aesthetically pleasing on any home. They will give a more smooth and polished look to your home. The only potential problem is your neighbors may be pestering you about who installed your new seamless gutters. You can always send them our way.
Solve your most common gutter problems by eliminating the risk for these problems all together. You can avoid gutter clogs, leaks, and mosquito breeding problems with the installation of seamless gutters.
