Types of Gutters
During the autumn season, gutters quietly gather leaves and dust. But when the rain falls, they spring into action to collect water and send it down a drainpipe away from your home. That’s why regular maintenance is important for keeping your gutters working properly. If you’re in need of a new gutter, consider the size of your home and roof to determine which style you might prefer.
Durable, seamless gutters can add curb appeal to almost any home. The biggest selling point is that they only have joints at the corners and where the gutter meets the downspouts. This decreases their likelihood of leaking. Even if one section fails, it can be removed and replaced without affecting the rest of the gutter system.
Sectional gutters, also called continuous gutters, are composed of small pieces of metal connected by seams. All sectional systems have end caps, corner pieces, and drop outlets for connecting to downspouts. They attach either by overlapping them or snapping them together with joiner pieces.
