Minimize leaks and much easier to clean than a traditional gutter!
Technically, copper and steel gutters are seamless because the contractors solder the metal together. Both materials are very durable, but neither is very popular. Copper is a beautiful option, but its high-end look comes with a corresponding price tag. Steel is also more expensive, although it is one of the strongest materials available. More commonly, seamless gutters come in aluminum. This metal is much more budget-friendly than copper or steel. What's more, aluminum is easier to bend and shape. Typically, these gutters feature a baked-on finish which comes in a variety of colors. A less common material for seamless gutters is vinyl. Retrofitted vinyl seamless gutters consist of a very long gutter that you cut down to the exact size. Vinyl isn't as sturdy as metal, though it's less expensive.
The gutters are installed in the usual method. The contractors have different options for mounting the gutters to the house's eaves. However, many contractors have chosen the hidden hanger method for structural integrity. This method consists of screwing a hanger to the fascia and sliding the gutter onto the hanger. As with traditional gutters, seamless gutters still feature endcaps to stop the water from overflowing at the end. They also include joints for curving around the house and the downspout to funnel the water away from the foundation. Though these pieces are typically installed using connectors, you still have fewer seams than with traditional construction.
