What are Seamless Gutters?
Seamless gutters are quickly becoming the most common installation on our homes across the nation. In fact, about 75 percent of all new gutter systems installed throughout the United States are of the seamless design. Seamless, also known as “continuous gutters” provide a much more architecturally pleasing appearance to your home. Most gutters with seams only have a span of about 10 feet. Hence, these require a caulked seam and hanger to be installed at each joint. The appearance suffice to say lends nothing to the overall look of your home. Many would agree it tends to detract from the appearance of your home.
Moreover, gutter systems with seams tend have a propensity to deconstruct over time. The seams have a propensity to leak; as well as often compromise the integrity of the system. Albeit, these are natural weak points in the system. Mid-west weather more specifically in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota is harsh. Snow and ice will challenge these systems during the winter; while the contrasting sun and heat of summer will “work them out” as well. Seamless gutters coupled with quality components, when properly installed will protect your invest for years to come. Take advantage of Mid-State Seamless Gutters *Life-Time Warranty.

Benefits of Seamless Gutters
Traditional gutters with joints have more of a tendency to leak at the joints and seals over time. One of the main and most important benefits of seamless guttering is that they help to prevent leaks (there are no seams). Weight from the rain and snow can also weaken the joints and cause leaks. Over time, gutter leaks can cause damage to your home’s siding, foundation and landscaping. The leaks can also cause puddles of water to accumulate exactly where you don’t want them – on your patio, along the sidewalk and other places where you walk. Most importantly, the thaw and re-freeze phenomena seldom if ever again will impact the potential for slipping and falling.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, do not have this problem. These gutters are made from one continuous piece of guttering customized to fit the length of your home. As a result, there are no joints or connections that can weaken and start to leak. When installed professionally, seamless gutters reduce the chance of water leaking around you home and causing inconvenient puddles or major damages.
