What are Seamless Gutters? Everything You Wanted to Know About Seamless Rain Gutters (But Were Afraid to Ask)
Not sure? Well, you’re not alone. We hear this question often. Our customers ask: What are they? What are the advantages? How are seamless gutters different from regular gutters?
Being the Seamless People, we love sharing our knowledge and experience with others. You see, we started out much like you – as homeowners needing a better, higher quality rain gutter system. We’ve now been in the business of custom manufacturing and installing seamless gutter systems since 1978. And each year we help more and more homeowners invest in seamless gutters, especially once they learn about the benefits of this amazing product.
So, welcome to Seamless Gutters 101! Below are answers to some of the most common questions we get about our seamless rain gutters:
Q: What benefits do seamless gutters offer over standard gutters?
A: To begin, no seams means no leaks. This helps ensure that water is carried away from your home reducing excessive water infiltration around your foundation or into your basement. Our seamless design also helps maintain the strength and integrity of the gutter system so expansion, contraction, freezing and strong winds have little or no impact on our seamless steel gutter.
And it looks great, too! ABC Seamless Designer gutters are custom cut on-site for an exact fit, blending perfectly with the soffit and fascia of your home. Lower-grade gutter systems often end up looking like an after-thought, literally tacked on to the eaves of a home. Our system integrates precisely with the existing structure. The result? A gutter that can actually enhance the curb appeal and value of your home.
Q: What are ABC Seamless rain gutters made from?
A: We use durable, 28-gauge, hot-dipped, G-90 galvanized steel. This provides far greater strength than aluminum or vinyl, and is more resistant to creasing, denting, and other common gutter damage. Most regular gutter systems, such as those offered by chain stores or through other gutter installation contractors, are not like ABC Seamless gutters. These products are typically inferior in construction and quality, leading to more problems and costly repairs.
Q: How will you attach the rain gutters to my home?
A: We use an exclusive “heavy” steel hanger that tightly secures the gutter to your home. This system is virtually invisible. Not only does this unique steel gutter hanger enhance the seamless look of our rain gutters, it is also considerably stronger than the spike and ferrule system used to attach light-weight aluminum gutters. And to secure our hangers, we use screws instead of nails. Screws are much less susceptible to coming loose when gutters are exposed to snow, ice, and heavy winds.
Q: In what colors are your seamless rain gutters available?
A: Chances are, we’ve got your color! Our palette includes 25 popular gutter colors, so your gutter system can coordinate with the look and color of your home. What’s more, we can install a designer soffit and fascia system in the exact same color as your gutters. This can give your home a beautiful “face lift” to enhance its visual appeal and overall value.
Q: What about the warranty?
A: Not to brag, but our warranty is one of the better warranties in the industry. We back our seamless rain gutters with a limited lifetime warranty. We want to ensure your rain gutter system provides years of worry-free protection – for you, for your home, AND for the product itself.
