When installing new gutters on your home you might be surprised to find you have more than one option. When choosing between standard K-style gutters and half-round gutters, you also have the option of seamless gutters vs regular gutters. Both will effectively usher rainwater away from your home when installed properly, but which one is better?
Tried and true, regular rain gutters are installed on most homes throughout the Delaware Valley. They are made by joining sections of the gutter to fit the roofline of your home. There are many customizable options for regular gutters such as their material (copper, steel, vinyl, and aluminum). Aluminum gutters are the most common because they are typically more affordable and long-lasting, creating the best value. Because the regular gutters come in mass-produced, standard lengths, they are easy to get, easy to install, and easy to replace.
Because they are a single piece of material, seamless gutters tend to be stronger than regular gutters. If you live in a wooded area or get a lot of debris on your roof, seamless gutters are ideal because they have significantly fewer areas where debris can get trapped and clog your gutters. Without those seams, you also have less risk of leaks. Custom cut and formed for your home, seamless gutters do tend to cost more than regular gutters but with reduced maintenance cost and effort, they are a great option for many homes.
