Seamless Gutters are the most popular type of rain gutters installed today. The gutters are called “seamless”, because they are made to the exact length needed. Unlike sectional rain gutters that are made from thin metal or plastic, having many unsightly seams that leak. Seamless gutters are made from a long spool of flat metal that goes through a machine to form the shape of a rain gutter. A spool of flat metal can make over 1000 feet of gutter. Seamless Gutters can be heated, helping to prevent ice build up of roofs.
The most common type of seamless gutters are known as “K-style”.
- K-style seamless gutters resemble traditional crown molding found on many homes. Available in either aluminum or copper, K-style seamless gutters protect your home from damaging rainwater, while adding value and enhancing the beauty of your home.
