The benefits of seamless aluminum gutters
There are a number of reasons why many homeowners choose gutters over other types of gutters. Consider the following advantages:
- Seamless lengths: Seamless gutters are custom cut to the length of gutter required, eliminating the need for seams that weaken the gutter and can lead to leaks.
- Durable, factory-applied finish: These gutters come with a factory-applied finish that is available in a wide variety of colors to match your home and/or roof. The finish won’t wear off or require maintenance unless you have to touch up scratched areas. If you want something truly unique, they’re easily painted any color.
- No rust or corrosion: Aluminum won’t rust or corrode, making it truly a no-maintenance material.
- Speedy installation: Our crews can usually complete a seamless gutter installation on an average house in a single day, as long as the fascia boards along the eaves are in good condition.
- Affordability: Seamless aluminum gutters cost less than other types of gutters while providing equal performance and a great finished appearance.
How to Install Gutters & Downspouts
1. From flat to formed: This K-profile gutter starts out as a flat sheet of aluminum. The gutter machine forms the profile, enabling the crew to create seamless gutters of any length. After the machine trims the gutter to the required length, workers attach end caps, then crimp and seal the caps to make the gutter watertight. At home, you can use a chalk line, hacksaw, and tin snips to cut the gutter to the right length.
2. Brackets add strength: These cross braces are installed every 36 inches or so to stiffen the gutter. The brackets also provide attachment points for screwing the gutter to the fascia during the gutter installation.
3. Fastened to the fascia: Driving sheet metal screws through each gutter bracket and into the fascia board anchors the gutter in place. Each gutter section is pitched so that water can drain toward the drop outlet for the downspout. Snap a chalk line to mark a straight along which the brackets will run the entire length of a gutter.
4. Down the drain: Downspouts are assembled from elbows and straight sections then screwed along the length of downspout outlet drop and to the wall of the house, all the way to the end of the gutter opening. You can cut any excess length with a hacksaw and tin snips.
