Seamless Gutters: How They’re Made and Where to Find Them

Home with two car garage.
How do you get new seamless gutters for your home?

When you want new gutters for your home, you’ll hear a lot about seamless gutters. What are they, and how can you get them for your home? Are they actually better than other gutters?

What Are Seamless Gutters?

What is a seamless gutter? While all gutters have some points of connection with other gutters, some gutter products have more than others. Sectional gutters are the gutters that people often place on their homes. These gutters come in sections, and you purchase enough guttering to make up the length that you require to cover the exterior of your house. These gutters are composed of smaller pieces of metal connected by seams. Usually these small pieces are a maximum of 10 feet long. When you install them,  you overlap them and use sealant to cover the joint.  Over time, the areas where the pieces connect can become zones of weakness in your gutters. They are rougher than the surrounding gutter and may collect debris. They can also start to leak.

On the other hand, a seamless gutter is made out of a single piece of metal. It doesn’t have seams, though it does need to connect to other gutter pieces at the corners of your roof. Aside from that, it’s free of the debris and leaking problems that you might experience with a sectional gutter.

Seamless gutters have fewer leaks because they have fewer seams. 

How Are Seamless Gutters Made?

Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum, although you can also get copper seamless gutters if you wish. Generally, they are made by the gutter contractor who works on-site to create the gutters that you need for your home. These gutters custom-made and, therefore, they fit your home perfectly. While you can’t walk down to the store and come back with seamless gutters for your home, these gutters are a superior custom product that’s designed with your unique home renovation project in mind. To find seamless gutters, work with a gutter contractor that specializes in custom gutter projects.

The Cost of Seamless Gutters

According to Home Advisor, “A seamless gutter will cost you between $3 and $25 per foot, totaling between $600 and $1,468 on average. It all depends on your choice of material and the pros in your area.” The cost varies depending on local labor costs and depending on the materials that you choose. For example, copper gutters are far more expensive than aluminum gutters.

The Ongoing Advantages of Seamless Gutters

If your gutters are warped, damaged, and leaking, you know that you need to replace them. Replacing them with seamless gutters reduces your need to repair them over time. Seamless gutters:

  • Are beautiful, with fewer seams
  • Have a strong enamel finish
  • Have fewer leaks
  • Can be completed in a single day
  • Come in many different colors to complement your home

They also work with gutter protection devices such as:

  • Gutter covers, which can protect your gutters from debris accumulation. Getting a high-quality gutter cover protects the beauty and integrity of your home by reducing gutter leaks from accumulated debris.
  • Gutter heating, which prevents ice from building up in your gutters. Ice buildup can lead to ice dams that damage your roof over time.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
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.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
