Why Seamless Rain Gutters?
Protecting your biggest investment-your home, is among the top priorities of homeowners. Taking steps to protect your home today could lead to significant savings in the future. When keeping in mind the longevity of your home, you realize that small steps taken today to prepare your home for harsh weather will help to avoid bigger hassles tomorrow.
Aside from aesthetics, seamless rain gutters are an important part of keeping not only your fascia and roof from damage but also your landscaping, foundation and soffits.
The main purpose of installing seamless rain gutters is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. They also help to prevent erosion, prevent leaks to basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water as well as providing a means to collect rainwater for further use.
A home without rain gutters is susceptible to the following, among other things:
With the proper installation of seamless rain gutters, a homeowner can avoid all these problems. Seamless rain gutters divert the flow of rainwater into your downspouts, preserving the timeless beauty of your home.
Below are some images showing the damage that can be avoided by installing seamless rain gutters on your home.
Why Seamless Downspouts?
Water collected by rain gutters are fed through a downspout from the roofs edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected in a rain barrel or cistern.
The accumulation of leaves and dirt in your rain gutters will prevent proper drainage through your downspouts, causing water to overflow and seep into the walls of your home as water backs up. Seamless downspouts were developed with this in mind. Seamless downspouts, along with routine gutter maintenance will lengthen the life of your rain gutters as there are less attachments that dirt and debris may cling to that lead to clogged and overflowing gutters.
Contrary to what some companies may lead you to believe, elbows are the number one cause of leaky gutters and clogged drainage.
Our exclusive seamless downspouts are custom cut and formed on-site for the best look and fit to your home. Our seamless downspouts come in 3×4, 4×5 or round profiles.
Below are some problems that can be avoided by installing seamless downspouts on your home while increasing the longevity of your rain gutters.
