Seamless gutters as the name suggests are devoid of any kinds of sections and demarcations. Owing to the absence of divisions these gutters can completely prevent the chances for water leakages which in turn can be helpful in protecting the roof walls and other parts of your house from possible water damages. It can therefore save you the expenses of roof and wall repairs. The materials mostly used for manufacturing these gutters are steel aluminum copper and vinyl. Due to the easy availability of these materials the installation of seamless gutters is not an expensive process.
Do My Gutters Need to Be Cleaned? Many homeowners may wonder how necessary it actually is to clean their gutters. Debris will clog your gutters and prevent water from passing. This backed up water can cause major damage to your roof above or your home below. Instead of being directed away from your house water may begin to overflow onto your yard foundation or into a window well causing flooding and damage. In the winter icicles may form in these places and become a dangerous hazard to people or objects below. Also if water is allowed to freeze and weigh down your gutters over time the nails may work their way out of the fascia (the board between the gutters and the house).
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. The problem was that the top of the gutter covers were completely closed off with pine needles--looked like a thatched roof and water could not enter the gutter. So I must ask What good is it if no water can enter the gutter? The second type is a micro mesh flat screen that likewise gets installed on top of the gutter. And just as with the screen nothing gets into the gutter when it clogs on top. Now the louvered system previously mentioned only costs about $3.00 per foot to have installed and the micro mesh product can cost nearly $20 per foot. I think youll agree that neither keeps the homeowner off ladders if they routinely need their tops to be cleaned.
