Seamless Gutters Vs. Store-Bought Gutters
Are you tired of the mini lake you keep getting in the corner of your house? Maybe it’s a great fishing spot for you every time it rains!
Gutters are pretty well known to be a great way to channel water to prevent flooding around your home when it rains. This helps prevent water damage that sneaks up on you with a very large bill. We like to help prevent that by installing aluminum gutters.
But maybe you’re thinking “eh…they got this stuff down at Lowe’s…I think I could give this a try.
We never want to openly doubt your handyman skills…but there is an advantage to going with a company like ours. For example, when you hire a professional company like Deltona Aluminum, you get a contractor who can make and order seamless gutters.
Seamless gutters can be hard to explain…they are gutters without seams.
…OK, it was easier than we thought.
Seamless gutters can only be made if you have the right machine, like we do. We go to your home, measure the areas we need to install gutters, and they come in those custom sizes. Down at the store, you’ll find gutters that are already cut, often 4’, 8’ or 12’.
Non-seamless Gutters (Store-bought)
Non-seamless gutters can be installed on your house by cutting pieces to fit your exact soffit measurements. But if you are joining two together, that seam will always end up leaking water one way or another. It can definitely help decrease the flooding, but leaky build up over time can put wear and tear on your gutters and the life span of those gutters.
All-in-all, when it comes to the price difference – factoring in all of the work, installation, and quality of the product – we highly suggest going with seamless gutters.
