Chances are that if you’re replacing your roof and your rain gutters and downspouts are the same age as the old roof, they will need replacing also. The old standard sectional type rain gutters typically last about 20 years. Their weak points and first places to fail are at the soldered seams where rust eats through these un-galvanized areas.
Fabricated on-site to the exact dimensions of your roof, seamless gutters eliminate many of the joints between gutter sections. There are still joints at the corners where the seamless sections meet, however these are now sealed with rivets and Vulkem® polyurethane sealant for permanent water tight connections.
Seamless gutters are made of 26 gauge galvanized steel and are available in three different styles (7” fascia, 5-1/2” fascia and 5" OGEE).
They are coated with a baked on enamel paint (DURA-COAT XT-10) and are available in 18 different colors. Copper gutters are also available for the very discerning customer.
Seamless gutters are the new standard and have overwhelmingly replaced sectional gutters due to their appearance, durability and longevity.
