You just moved into your new home. You stand outside, looking at your home and thinking, “What do I do now? How do I care for this house? What do I do to maintain it? How do I protect this major investment?”
What many homeowners don’t realize is that gutters provide an important function in caring for your home. Gutters are not a frivolous expense – they are an investment that help save money in the long run. In this Minnesota climate where rain and snow are common (sometimes within the same day), gutters give your home an added layer of protection from water, snow, and ice damage by collecting water runoff and moving it away from your home. This is crucial whether your home is brand new or a bit more seasoned. Most new construction homes do not come with gutters installed, and if your home isn’t new construction, it’s never too late to add that protection.
There are two basic types of gutters – sectional and seamless.
Sectional gutters are perhaps what you are more accustomed to seeing and can be more of a DIY opportunity for your home. These gutters are factory made in long sections that are then cut and assembled together on-site. Longer spans on your home often require multiple sections. Sectional gutters do help in protecting your home.
Our seamless gutters, however, offer several advantages over sectional gutters.
- The first advantage of seamless gutters is that they are… seamless. This is important in the gutter world. Why? Seams often create points that trap debris, causing backups in the gutters. Seamless gutters stay cleaner, and that’s less maintenance for you!
- Seams can also be the points where gutters begin to leak. Such leaks can bring water back towards the house, damaging trim, siding, and potentially the foundation. Seamless gutters are less likely to leak, making them more effective in the long run.
- We manufacture your seamless gutters on-site, meaning that you get exact fits to the roof spans of your home. This provides aesthetic value as the clean lines of a seamless gutter help to blend in with the trim and facia of your home.
- On-site manufacturing also prevents dents, scratches, or other damage from transportation or installation.
Seamless gutters provide a worthwhile investment in the long run, adding practical and aesthetic value to your home. These are the reasons why we focus on this product. It’s a superior product with superior results. We only want to work with and provide the best, and in our experience, that’s a seamless gutter system.
So as you stand outside this home that you just moved into, wondering what you can do, don’t be overwhelmed. Start with gutters. It’s not the only thing that you can do, and it certainly won’t solve all your maintenance questions.
