Why Do I Need A Gutter?
A Gutters main purpose is to collect and redirect rainwater away from a building. This helps prevent soil erosion around a buildings found which would lead to water reaching the basement. This would lead to not only your basement flooding but the buildings foundation would be in jeoprady. It is not advisable to direct the out flow of water to a garden as it can become over flooded in heavy rain storms and end up damaging the landscape. In addition, we would also not advise directing water out onto the drive in as the water can freeze in winter months, making it slippery for vehicles and pedestrians. Rather, a professionally installed gutter will guide rainwater to a drain or safe area. Gutters are produced in various materials such as aluminum, copper and plastic.

What is a Seamless Gutter?
A Seamless Gutter is a gutter that is produced as one singular piece. Traditional gutters are produced in several pieces that need to be welded together. A consequence of the Seamless Gutter design is that they do not leak. Seamless Gutters are also popular with homeowners because of their ”clean” appearance. The continuous form of a Seamless Gutter can contribute towards your properties overall appeal. Seamless Gutters are often made of aluminium and can last up to 20 years if regularly cleaned.

Both materials have their advantages and disadvantages but the decision is ultimately determined by the location the property is located, whether the gutter will be installed by a trained professional or a ”do-it-yourself” project or whether you’re installing a traditional gutter or seamless gutter.
