Do you need new gutters for your home? You have probably heard of both seamless and sectional gutters. But which one should you get? What is the difference between them? Fortunately, the experts at Installed Building Products Tulsa have the answers.
Sectional gutters are pieced together in 10- to 20-foot sections with multiple seams—the gutter sections are joined together with connectors. Sectional gutter systems have corner pieces, end caps and drop outlets for connecting to the downspouts.
Pros of sectional gutters: easy installation; cost
Cons of sectional gutters: higher potential for leaks
Seamless gutters are continuous—they only have joints at the corners and where the gutters meet downspouts—and most often made from aluminum. However, they can also be made of copper or painted steel. Although they are a bit more costly, seamless gutters are stronger and more reliable than sectional gutters. Installing these types of gutters requires special equipment and an experienced contractor.
Pros of seamless gutters: performance; color variety
Cons of seamless gutters: cost
