What are gutters?
Gutters are one of the oldest and most effective tools for preventing water damage to a home. Installed at the edge of the roof, the gutter is designed to catch rainwater and direct it away from the home’s foundation, saving the eve and the foundation from potential damage. Although gutters are a well-known technology, there are still many places where they are not commonly used or understood. To make sure the water is properly channeled away from the home, the gutter is installed with a downward-facing slant that collects all of the rainwater, which is then directed through a downspout. This allows the water to exit the house in a controlled manner, ensuring that the home remains safe from water damage.
What are Seamless Gutters?
To create gutters, metal needs to be shaped by a machine. Until recently, these machines were usually found in shops and the gutters had to be formed away from the home and brought in for installation. To make this process more efficient, the gutters were formed in 10-foot sections and then transported to the house to be connected together for longer lengths. Nowadays, the machines can be found on site and the gutters can be created directly at the property.
Portable gutter machines made it possible for installers to form gutters directly at the home, ensuring each length was the precise size required and reducing the number of seams in the gutter. This development resulted in seamless gutters, which require less maintenance since seams are not as likely to fail. Additionally, the installation process is much easier and faster, allowing for lower prices in the long run.
Why do I need them?
Gutters are an essential addition to any home or building, and the importance of properly installed and maintained gutters cannot be understated. Building inspectors across the nation have begun to make gutter installation mandatory for all new residential construction, and with good reason. Gutters help stabilize the surrounding soil, prevent foundation issues, basement and under-house flooding, erosion of lawns and landscaping, water damage to siding, water stains on brick and stone, settling and cracking of driveways, patios, and walkways, and the maintenance of overhead garage doors and outside doors. All of these benefits can be achieved with the simple installation of gutters, making their importance clear.

Things to look out for
Starting a business in the gutter industry has become a much simpler and more accessible process since the invention of the portable seamless gutter machine. This has created a great deal of competition, which is excellent news for the consumer as it keeps prices low. However, it also means that many consumers are choosing companies that are not reliable and have no longevity, leaving them vulnerable to service issues, low-quality workmanship, and costly repairs down the road. Ultimately, this can be a costly investment for the consumer if they don’t choose a gutter company with a proven track record.
When selecting a company for your gutter installation, it is important to ensure that they are reliable, have a good reputation, and will be available to provide assistance if needed. Researching customer feedback, inquiring about warranties, and verifying the company’s longevity in the industry are all important steps to take to ensure that you are selecting a reputable contractor. Doing this will give you the confidence that the company you choose will take responsibility for their work and provide you with the best possible service.
