There are many different gutter materials to choose from, including steel, aluminum, vinyl, copper. Many types of gutters (steel and vinyl in particular) are sold in 10 lengths and require dozens of seams fastened with slip fittings. Each one is a weak spot and a potential leak site. The best method available is the installation of Seamless Aluminum Gutters. Seamless Gutters must be fabricated on-site by a professional Gutter Specialist.

The term Seamless Gutters can be confusing because there are seams in the system. The seams are only at the corners and downspout outlets. These joints are fastened more securely and sealed for stability and leak resistance. The Seamless Gutter itself is continuous, which makes it both strong and visually more appealing.

Each home is different and can require a unique solution. Some homes have standard 5 gutters installed, but it is best – and in some cases necessary – to install 6 or even 7 oversized gutters.

A poorly designed or improperly installed gutter downspout may trap debris, particularly at the entry or exit points, blocking the natural flow of water and causing water to dam in the gutter – and trap more debris. The result is the clogging of the gutter that is often blamed on leaves and twigs.

Allow the insides of the gutters to dry out, and brush leaking seams clean. Apply silicone or special gutter caulking compound along the seams on the inside and outside to seal the leaks, as shown above. Patch small holes with roofing cement. Use a putty knife to spread the cement generously around the hole.
