Gutters and downspouts fill an extremely important role in any roofing system. Without gutters, rainwater will likely flow uncontrolled down the roof panels and saturate the ground around your home. This could lead to a number of problems such as water penetration from the eaves, basement flooding, or, worse, foundational problems. This is why most roofing contractors recommend taking the time to choose the right gutter products for your home.
The main problem with choosing gutters, however, is not availability but the sheer number of options you can choose from. While different styles of gutters all have their pros and cons, our experts at D & M Roofing recommend using seamless gutters. Here are a few reasons seamless gutters are the superior choice.
Reduced Clogging Problems
One of the most common reasons for needing roof repairs is clogged gutters. Dirt and fallen leaves from nearby trees often find their way into the troughs. Normally, smaller debris can be washed away by the waterflow, but more often than not, they get caught on the welded joints of a gutter system. Seamless gutters do away with these joints, reducing the chances of clogging. This, combined with an effective gutter cover, can provide your home with enough protection.
Saves You Money
Answering clogging problems will likely eliminate the need for frequent maintenance. It’s still important to have a professional come and care for your gutters regularly but not as often as before. This can save you money in the long run, which balances out the high initial cost of seamless gutters.
Lastly, both homeowners and roofers alike agree that seamless gutters simply look better than traditional sectional styles. The improved appearance adds to your overall curb appeal which, in turn, can raise the value of your home.
