Help! My Roof Has Too Many Corners

When it comes time to replace your gutters, it’s tempting to just buy the materials and do it yourself. It’s easy to assume that replacing the gutters will be a simple task – after all, gutters themselves aren’t a complicated concept. For some home handymen, this does go well, but other homeowners run into to problems. When are you most likely to run into a problem? When you get to the corners of the roof. And the more corners the roof has, the more difficult your gutter replacement becomes. Take a look at what you need to know about gutter replacement and how to overcome the problem of too many corners.

Why Are Corners A Problem?

Gutter system
The more corners, the more difficult gutter installation will be.

Traditional gutters come in sectional pieces that have to be welded together or connected by gaskets. At every point where you connect one piece of the gutter to the next, you have a seam, and each seam is a weak point in your gutter system. These are the places where your gutters are most likely to leak. They’re also the places where your gutters are most likely to sag over time.

What does that have to do with corners? Well, one place where you will always need to have a seam is at a corner. In and of itself, that’s not a problem, but when you have more than just a few corners and sections between each corner as well, those seams begin to add up quickly, and you wind up with a weaker gutter system. A weak gutter system will need more repairs and maintenance than a strong one, and what’s more, when your gutter system develops problems, it can end up damaging your roof, trim, and siding as well.

What’s The Solution?

You can’t eliminate corners on your roof, so what’s the fix for this problem? The answer is to eliminate seams between the corners. You can do that by choosing seamless gutters for your roof.

“Seamless” gutters are not entirely free of seams – again, you have to have seams at the corners of the roof. The benefit of seamless gutters is that each one is custom made to fit one whole side of your roof, so they only need to connect at the corners. This significantly reduces the number of seams and makes your gutter system stronger.

How To Get Seamless Gutters

It’s worth putting down your tool belt and letting the professionals install a stronger gutter system.

If you want seamless gutters for your home, you’ll have to give up the idea of installing them yourself. The gutters will need to be custom made for your home and installed by professional installers – this is not a DIY project. Don’t worry, though – even though you’ll have to pay for installation, you may still save money. Your seamless gutters are liable to hold up longer and need less maintenance and repair work, so you’ll spend less in the long run.

Harry Helmet has a sterling reputation for installing high quality gutters that last. If you’re looking for more information about seamless gutters, or you’re ready to replace your gutters, contact us for an estimate.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
