One of our specialties at Custom and Copper Gutter Company is the installation of custom gutters. Custom gutters are also sometimes called seamless gutters. They offer some real advantages over regular gutter systems. Ordinary gutter systems are made of a plastic or made of aluminum. They are the least expensive gutter systems. They are installed segment by segment, and held together by seams. These gutters are typically not as well fastened to the structure. The seams and the attachment points are the weaknesses of these gutter systems.
Gutters can move a little in the wind or in a heavy rain. After a time, the seams can or attachments can work loose. A piece of a seam that juts out into water flow can become an anchoring place for leaves or twigs that are blown into or washed into the gutter, and these can quickly build up, and become blockages that lessen or prevent proper water flow. A failing attachment point can lead to a gutter section sagging. Sagging often leads to standing water, which can leak into a structure and contribute to the growth of mold.
An interrupted flow of water in a gutter system, no matter what the cause, can result in water spillage close to a residence, defeating the entire purpose of a gutter system. The spillage can damage plantings and if not repaired, can damage a foundation and other structural elements. Accumulated debris and water can become a substantial weight, leading to gutters sagging, interrupting water flow, and causing problems associated with standing water and overflow. One way to avoid problems such as these is regular inspection and regular cleaning. Another way is having seamless gutters installed.
There is another advantage to custom gutters. They come in a variety of colors, and they simply look better.
