Canton gets an average of 44 inches of snow a year. This is 18 inches more than the average U.S. city, says Sperling’s Best Places. Add nearly three feet of rain annually, and you have plenty of reasons to ensure your home has great gutters. Seamless gutters can save your home, from the foundation up to the roof.
What Gutters Do
Gutters carry water from melting snow, melting ice and rain off your roof and away from your home’s foundations. Look at the downspouts around your home. They turn at the end, or drop into French drains, to move water well away from the dirt around your home. Wet foundation walls lead to cracks, which weaken your whole house.
Gutters with proper gutter guards also prevent clogs, so they can carry water (and not leaves or debris) along and down the downspouts. Clogged gutters lead to water infiltrating into your attic, between your exterior and interior walls, and into your roof sheathing.
Properly installed seamless gutters also help to prevent or reduce damaging ice dams, winter’s destructive force fighting against your roof. Ice dams can cause water to move up your roof, against gravity, and seep in behind water and ice shield or underlayment.
Why Seamless Gutters?
Seams in sectional gutters do five unwelcome things:
- Increase chances for clogs by snagging pine needles and leaves
- Increase chances for leaks
- Detract from your home’s facade
- Drive down curb appeal
- Reduce home value
Seamless gutters are superior but also stronger than sectional gutters, since they are formed from a continuous sheet of heavy gauge aluminum. This aluminum comes with its painted surface baked on for lasting color and beauty, helping to preserve your home for years to come.
