When your gutters get clogged the rain or snow has nowhere to go but up on the roof or down the side of the house seeping into the interior walls and foundation causing damage. Bad gutters start sagging or pull away from the fascia board caused from too much snow weighing down the gutter. When the gutters are not protected with gutter guards they take a lot of wear and tear from trees animal feces snow ice and rain. When you have a solid guttering system the rain water and melted snow will run through the gutter in to the downspout out on the ground running away from your home. Without the gutter guard protection your gutters will eventually cause damage costing you thousands of dollars in repairs that could have been prevented.
Maintains Cleanliness: Because these gutters do not have any demarcations they do not allow the entry of dirt debris birds insects and chipmunks. This helps in maintaining the cleanliness of the gutters for years thereby saving you the hassles and efforts of cleaning them frequently. Besides having innumerable advantages seamless gutters involve certain concerns as well which you must be aware of before you decide to install them. Seamless gutters involve various details and are not easy to install. They cannot be installed by laypersons without appropriate knowledge skill and training. It is necessary for you to hire trained and professional technicians to install them. Because you cannot install them on your own and need to hire professionals for carrying out the job it is usually an expensive process to install seamless gutters.
And theres all kinds of debris with which to deal--leaves of all shapes and sizes needles and blossoms. Still another question: Even if you could have self cleaning gutters how about self cleaning leafguards? Am I getting ahead of myself? Having been in the business of gutter protection for over twenty years I can say that Ive only seen three types of leafguards that dont let the gutters clog inside. One was a flat louvered screen device. When we inspected the gutter inside they were clean enough to eat upon.
Copper and stainless steel gutters run the highest in terms of costs. These high-end materials are strong and will not rust or rot. They can cost up to $20 per linear foot. A faux-copper gutter made of aluminum called "Musket Brown" sells for $9 per linear foot. Aluminum gutters are by far the most popular because they do not rust are lightweight and cost anywhere from $4-$8 per linear foot. However these gutters are more easily damaged by ladders and branches which may cost more money in repairs over several years.
