Seamless Rain Gutters
One of the best things about seamless rain gutters is that the troughs and downspouts of the system are formed on-site to the specific dimensions of your property. This reduces the number of seams - or joints - where pre-fabricated gutter troughs must be connected and reinforced with extra hangers. When it comes to gutters, the fewer seams you have the better. Seams create potential leak points that can lead to the premature breakdown of the system or even lead to property damages.
You can get a seamless rain gutter installation for as little as $4.50 to $5.50 per linear foot. Seamless systems are fabricated using color-infused materials that are fade resistant and never require painting. Seamless gutters are available in a wide range of colors that are sure to complement or contrast nicely with the color of your property. Installing 6-inch seamless gutters allows your property to shed heavy rains and snow melt more quickly. And, because of their size, they allow more debris to pass through more freely, which minimizes clogging.
The Purpose of Your Rain Gutter Installation
Water diversion systems were developed to protect homes and businesses from the effects of water damage. Rain that is allowed to simply fall from the eaves of a building will erode the cement or the soil at the base of the property. And this ultimately results in unsightly, discolored ruts in sidewalks and unattractive trenches in the soil where neither grass nor flowers can grow due to the impact of the falling waters.
Excessive rain and melted snow that is allowed to fall from the rooftop and gather at the foundation of a property can also lead to an over-saturation of the soil. This destabilizes the earth holding the foundation in place. It also contributes to foundation shifting and settling as the soil beneath the surface expands and contracts in correlation with the volume of water it contains.
A rain gutter installation will reduce the potential for property damages stemming from water runoff and heavy soil saturation.
Gutter Parts and Accessories
Gutters are comprised of several different components, each of them designed to serve a specific purpose. These are some of the individual parts that are used to create a water diversion system:
Troughs: These are the channels that run horizontally along the eaves of your property. They collect water directly from the rooftop.
Downspouts: These are the vertical pipes fastened to the corners of the exteriors wall of your property. Downspouts carry the water down from the rooftop.
Elbows: These are the parts that are connected to the troughs and the downspouts. The elbows also carry the water away from the base of the building once it falls from the downspouts.
