Information About Gutters and Rain Drainage
The best thing you can do for your home or business
is to keep water away from it.
Seattle is a city that rains alot so of course that moisture then gets deep into the concrete and your house settles further now
causing exterior cracks in your brick and mortar. With repeated or prolonged exposure to moisture, your home will also be
susceptible to rot, mold, mildew, discoloration, seepage, landscaping erosion and more.
This is why rain gutters and rain water being away from your home are so important. Properly functioning rain gutters shield your
home and usher harmful rain water safely away from it. When it comes to protecting your home from rain water with properly
installed gutters, Benjamin Franklin's old adage~ “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is most certainly true.
Currently it is estimated that 75% of the rain gutters installed in America are made of seamless aluminum. The reason for aluminum’
s popularity is that at a moderate cost you'll have a material that can last a lifetime and is resistant to rust, even when subjected to
standing water over long periods of time. Seamless does not necessarily mean completely without seams as the pieces must meet
at corners and downspouts; realistically it means that there is less opportunity for rain water to leak. The fabrication of seamless
gutters cannot be done as a do-it-yourself project; the gutters must be formed in a gutter machine operated by a skilled contractor.
Seamless in Seattle specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of seamless 5 and 6" inch “K” style aluminum gutters,
including downspouts, elbows, and other gutter related accessories. Our corners are hand mitered, a rare specialty in the
industry. All of our materials come from the lead manufacturers in America. Our painted aluminum gutter products are available in
18 different colors and carry a manufacturer’s paint warranty to guarantee that your gutters will never chip, peel.
As standard practice Seamless in Seattle will install your new gutters behind the existing flashing, ensuring no rain water will
escape behind them, preventing future damage to your wood and/or paint. We use hidden hangers which are clipped into the
gutter and are screwed to the fascia or rafter ends every two feet with 1½-inch galvanized wood screws to assure strength,
longevity and improve your home or business’s appearance. We use Vulkem brand sealant it adheres to aluminum better than any
other sealant, giving a long lasting, durable seal that also looks good for years to come.
Each installation is a custom fit for your home or business. Most jobs can be completed in a single day. Customer Satisfaction is
our first priority, our referral clients being our best advertisement.
