When it’s time to upgrade the exterior of your home one of the first things you should consider is your gutters. Properly functioning gutters play an integral role in protecting your roof and home from water damage and can also make or break the aesthetic appeal of your home’s exterior. When your San Marcos home needs new gutters, the experts at Guardian Roofs in San Marcos recommend opting for seamless, aluminum gutters.  

What Are Seamless Gutters?

It might seem obvious from the name, but seamless gutters are, you guessed it – seamless! Seamless gutters are installed as one continuous system from a solid piece of material so there aren’t any seams. Sectional gutters which come in pre-cut lengths are a more common choice because they’re cheap and easy to install, so, while seamless gutters are more expensive to install, the return on investment they offer makes them worth the extra cost.

Advantages of Seamless Gutters

As mentioned, seamless gutters come with numerous advantages over their sectioned counterparts. 


Because they come in one solid strip, seamless gutters are custom cut to perfectly fit your San Marcos home. They will have extremely precise measurements that allow them to work more effectively and be more watertight. 

Fewer Joints

One of the biggest benefits of seamless gutters is the lack of joints in them. The joints in sectional gutters tend to be where debris like leaves and dirt get caught and build up leading to damage and leaks. Every joint in a gutter is a vulnerable location for leaking, so the fewer joints the better. 


The lack of joints on seamless gutters also makes them a more attractive gutter option. Because they are custom-cut and have such a precise fit to your home they will have a sleek and clean look that can improve your curb appeal and even increase the value of your home, which is a huge benefit in the San Marcos housing market. 


As mentioned, the lack of joints on seamless gutters means there is less debris build-up in the gutters. This means less gutter cleaning which can be dangerous and tedious if you do it yourself and expensive if you hire a professional.

Seamless gutters have a much longer lifespan than sectional gutters. The materials that seamless gutters are made from tend to be more durable and can withstand the elements better than sectional gutters. Additionally, sectional gutters tend to degrade at their seams leading to replacement sooner than seamless gutters. Typically, new seamless gutters will last 20-30 years in San Marcos. 

Easy Installation

While your seamless gutters will need to be installed by a professional, the installation process is very simple. Your contractor will use specialized equipment to ensure an exact fit, customized to your home, and your gutters will be installed as one, solid piece around the perimeter of your roof.  

Your gutters are an exceptionally important part of your home’s water management system and, as such, should have proper care and consideration taken when it’s time to get new ones.
