Seamless vs. Sectional Gutters

Do you need to replace your gutters? It’s a good idea to install new ones now, before it gets cold and snow starts falling—winter weather can wreak havoc on your home, especially if your gutters are old or somehow compromised.

As you’ve been doing research, you may have come across two different gutter terms: seamless and sectional. These are actually two different types of gutters. What is the difference between them? Which one is better? Keep reading to learn more!

Sectional Gutters

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.

The major advantage of sectional gutters is their cost.

Seamless Gutters

Also called continuous gutters, seamless gutters only have joints at the corners and where the gutters meet downspouts. They are most often made from aluminum, but they can also be made of copper or painted steel too. Seamless gutters are also available in a variety of colors.

The major advantage of seamless gutters is their reliability.

What’s the Difference Between Seamless and Non-Seamless Gutters?

Although a bit more costly, seamless gutters are stronger and more reliable than sectional gutters. Due to their continuous (seamless) design, they are less likely to leak and cause problems. Seamless gutters are much more popular today than sectional.
