What are Continuous Gutters?
Early gutter systems used to be made of multiple sections of steel or wood that used sealants to connect each section to the one adjacent to it. The gutter sections were mass produced so they could be used on any building. The problem was that there were multiple seams that were prone to leaks and corrosion.
Continuous gutters revolutionized the gutter industry years ago, by having sections made on-site and cut to the specific lengths needed. For the most part, a continuous system will have almost no seams, providing a smoother look for your building, and less maintenance in the long run.
Advantages of Continuous Gutters
The continuous Eavestrough System provides you with several advantages that will keep your home or business safer and in better repair. The biggest advantage involves the absence of seams, which can become weak points in the gutter system. Gutters often weaken at seams, eventually presenting cracks that allow water to leak through instead of being directed toward downspouts. When water does not properly channel away from a building, it usually drips toward the foundation, leading to damage there along with erosion of the surrounding landscape. Leaks can even affect the areas of the roof around the leaking seam, leading to roof rot.
Seams in traditional wood or steel gutters can also cause other problems as the system ages. The floor of the system isn’t entirely smooth as the sealants create ridges on the bottom of the gutter. Debris can get caught in these areas, allowing water to back up. If a lot of debris accumulates, the problem can become serious as the gutters can overflow onto your property. Because continuous gutters are formed from a single sheet of metal, this problem will automatically be avoided.
Consider an Alu-Rex Leaf Screen or T-rex continuous hanger for Your Gutter Installation
A well-installed continuous gutter system is only part of the equation to keep water away from your building. Consider installing a leaf protection system, such as T-Rex continuous hanger, at the same time as your continuous gutters to provide the ultimate water removal system. Guardian Eavestrough is an authorized installer of Alu-Rex Gutter Protection Systems, which match the quality of our continuous gutter installations. Alu-Rex gutter clean and T-rex systems give you the following advantages:
- Keeps your system clean of debris. In the summer and fall, leaves and other debris can enter your Eavestrough system during storms. The Gutter Clean System stops such debris from entering and reducing the chance of water infiltration. Similarly, the system doesn’t allow excessive ice and snow to enter gutters, so they don’t become clogged.
- Sturdiness. Because these guards are made of weatherproof aluminum, they won’t rust, chip or warp. They will also withstand heavy loads, so they won’t collapse into the gutters if ice, snow or debris becomes excessive.
- Winter Shield Technology. Snow and ice will remain on top of the shield, even when the weather warms to allow normal operation of the gutter system. This helps protect gutters from expansion problems caused when water refreezes.
As well as the above, the T-Rex continuous hanging system provides additional strength by creating a seamless hanger, replacing the traditional system of having a hanger, or nail, spaced every 2 feet. These systems are much stronger, and more durable than standard systems.
Every Alu-Rex Gutter Protection System comes with a 40-year clog-free warranty. You won’t find a better one in the industry. You’ll save both time and money with one of these systems.
Keeping Your Gutters Clean
Even if you elect not to install leaf guards on your gutters, keeping them clean is a necessity. Clogged gutters can lead to leaks, as we have previously noted and can cause water damage to your building’s interior or exterior.
In addition to the increased possibility of water damage. Dirty gutters also provide a haven for mold and will attract insects and pests such as rodents who may make their homes on your property. If left long enough, they can even become infested with honeycombs made by bees.
We typically recommend gutters are cleaned once to twice a year, or once every other year in areas with little or no trees.
