A lot of homeowners invest in Gutter Helmet® systems to keep their gutters protected from common problems. Gutters move rainwater safely away from parts of your home where they can do a lot of damage. These include critical parts of your structure, such as your foundation. This means your gutters should remain functional during all seasons throughout the year.
During installation, you’ll have the chance to choose between having a sectional or seamless gutter system.
The Good and Bad of Sectional Gutters
It’s tempting to DIY a sectional gutter installation for your home, but as far as safety and quality are concerned, you’re better off contacting professionals to do it for you. Sectional gutters come in segmented components. Each of these parts weigh very little, making them easier to handle as the pieces are welded together. The ease of installation means that these are a more budget-friendly option.
Unfortunately, sectional gutters are prone to a lot of problems. The welded joints are particularly susceptible to snagging debris and other materials that can clog up the troughs. The intersections are also prime spots where rust can nucleate and spread.
Are Seamless Gutters Better?
Seamless gutters may be more expensive initially, but investing in these can save you a lot of money on repairs or even replacement. Having some form of gutter protection like a Gutter Helmet will even prolong its lifespan protecting it from leaves and other debris that can cause damage and other issues with your gutters.
