Gutters are responsible for diverting water away from your roofing system and your home’s foundation. Seamless gutters are a type of gutter system that is highly recommended because they have fewer joints, making them less prone to leaks.
Proper installation ensures that the seamless gutters are working efficiently. In this post, Gutter Helmet discusses what you can expect during seamless gutter installation.
Removing the Old Gutters
To begin the process, gutter installers need to inspect and remove the old gutter system. This process involves tearing off the old materials and making sure the fascia board, where the new seamless gutter system will be attached, doesn’t have any issues that might affect their performance and stability.
Gutter installers must get the correct measurement of the roofline to ensure the seamless gutters will fit properly. They will take note of the dimensions of the eaves to determine the length of the seamless gutters. It is also during this step when they must identify the appropriate locations for the downspouts.
Fabrication & Installation
Once the measurements are taken and the downspout placement is determined, the installers will start the fabrication of the seamless gutters. These gutters are made on-site and are customized to fit your roof. A machine molds and cuts the gutters to the desired dimensions. Then, the gutters are installed using hangers. Afterward, the downspouts are fabricated and fitted to the system. Your contractor will then clean up and dispose of the old gutter materials.
