Seamless metal gutters have certain advantages that you simply can’t get with 10-ft. sectional gutters:
Seamless gutters are available in gray, almond, tan and at least two dozen other baked-on colors. If you want gutters in something other than “home center” white or brown, you have to go with seamless.
Aluminum seamless gutters are normally .032 gauge. thick, while off-the-shelf gutters are about .019 gauge. thick, even a little less if they’re steel. That’s a considerable difference. Most seamless gutter companies also use extremely strong mounting brackets. This rigidity can be crucial for withstanding ice dams and leaning ladders. Most seamless gutters are warranted for 20 years for materials .
Continuous gutter sections as long as 100 ft or more. can be formed and installed on site. No seams (except at corners and downspouts) means less chance of leaks. Since the flow is unimpeded by splices, water and debris have a straighter shot to the downspout.
Plus, watching workers extrude the gutters right in your driveway is incredibly cool. A monstrous 1,500-lb. machine on one end converts a roll of flat metal into a continuous, fully formed gutter on the other.
