What Are Seamless Gutters And Why Are They Better?
Traditional gutters have seams and crevices along the gutter assembly which cause debris to be caught, plugging up the line and slowing water flow and which can result in full blockage. This means multiple cleanings and dirty gutters. Over time the extra weight can pull on the gutter hardware and cause pieces to fail completely.
Many homes that do not have gutters experience a natural corrosion of their foundation and soil over time. This occurs from the rain water pouring in one solid sheet down off of the roof into the ground. This waterfall like effect displaces the dirt and sedements at the foot of your home causing ugly and potentially dangerous corrosion.

If you live in an area that experiences any type of rainfall throughout the year then the answer is yes, you do need gutters. Seamless Gutters and others are designed to help your home shed the water coming down from the sky.
