If you need new gutters for your home, you have several options—seamless, half round, box, sectional, etc. Seamless gutters are one of the most popular types—and they have gained popularity over sectional gutters in the past several years. But how are they different? Which one is better?
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. While they are often a very affordable option, they do have a higher potential for leaks.
Seamless gutters, also known as continuous gutters, are continuous lengths that are measured and cut on site for a perfect fit. They only have joints at the corners and where the gutters meet downspouts—meaning they are less likely to leak. Although they are most often made from aluminum, they can be made of copper or painted steel, and they are also available in a variety of colors. Seamless gutters are stronger and more reliable than sectional gutters.
In general, seamless gutters are preferred over sectional gutters—and for pretty good reason.

"I wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with the work that your company did at my house. Your office staff people were always very pleasant, everyone showed up when they were supposed to and completed the job. I want to especially thank Jack for the great job he did. Always very professional and courteous, had a “hands on” approach on the entire project from start to finish and was always very accessible!! When I contacted him…he was back to me in less than 15 minutes. I will not hesitate to refer my friends and family to you in the future. Many thanks!!! "-Monrovia, MD
