No one likes dealing with a clogged or broken gutter, but the truth is that gutters play a vital role in protecting your home from water damage and other structural issues. Gutters direct rainwater away from your foundation, preventing flooding in your basement and a full slate of other property water damage. They also help prevent the formation of ice dams on your roof, which can cause serious damage to your shingles and gutters. Therefore, quality seamless gutter installation is a critical component of any home’s exterior.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPES OF GUTTERS FOR YOUR HOME?
Seamless gutters don’t have any length limit. They can run as far as from corner to corner and are available in aluminum. With no seams on the gutter’s length, it’s not possible for the gutter to leak at mid-point (it will still leak over the peak or at corner joints though). Seamless gutters preserve the sleek horizontals of your roof line and are best at matching your home since rolled aluminum comes in as many as 50 colors. Overall, seamless gutters can’t be created and put on in a do-it-yourself way. As a result, these gutters are going to cost more than DIY gutters because of labor and equipment costs. There’s also this problem: should one space of a seamless gutter fail, the whole length is affected, and the entire gutter would need to be replaced or a part of it would need to be cut out.
Sectional gutters are offered in 10-foot-long parts that attach to your home’s fascia board with hangers. They can be attached by overlapping them or snapping them in conjunction with joiner parts. These gutters are available in vinyl or various types of metals (either aluminum or galvanized steel). Vinyl gutters are heavy and can’t be painted, but they offer the advantage of being immune to corrosion, fading, or rusting. Metal gutters, particularly aluminum, are lightweight. Copper gutters tend to be a special-order item and are considerably more expensive than both metal and vinyl. A 10-foot section of half-round copper gutter could also be 10 or even 20 times more expensive than other gutter materials.
Sectional gutters are the most economical option. If one section fails, it can be removed and replaced without affecting the remainder of the gutter system. Stock colors for steel gutters tend to be white and brown, and although the white gutters can be painted, there aren’t a lot of customizing options when you choose this type of gutter. Stock vinyl colors are available in white but can’t be painted. Should water collect within the gutter system, typically because of debris, water could leak at the seams between sections and cause damage.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT SHAPES AVAILABLE FOR GUTTERS?
Fascia Shape: Fascia-style gutters are tall and narrow and cover the entire height of the fascia. However, fascia from gutters are often tough to clean thanks to their increased depth.
K-Shape: The foremost common gutter profile is named K-shape and features a look similar to crown molding found in a home’s interior. K-shape gutters will carry a lot more water than half-round gutters because of the creases that run through the length of the gutters. K-shape gutters are also structurally robust.
Half-Round Shape: With their U-shaped profile, half-round gutters have more of a standard look than K-shaped gutters. If copper is your gutter material of choice, it’ll probably be available in a half-round form as well. Half-round gutters carry less water than K-shape gutters. They extend way out from the fascia (as far as a half-dozen inches), making them wider than taller (about three inches tall).
