What are seamless gutters?

Seamless rain gutters are just as the name implies - seamless. There isn't a break in the gutter.

How do seamless gutters differ from sectional gutters?

Since there is no seam, there are no leaks. This is why they are the most popular type of gutter today. The only seams are at inside and outside corners. C & C seamless gutters are siliconed, screwed and warranted for five years not to leak.

Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum, but they can be made from copper. They are made with a seamless gutter machine that is brought to your home by the gutter contractor. Each individual gutter is customized to fit your home.

With a conventional sectional gutter system there are many sections of guttering all pieced together by snap-in-place connectors. Over time these sections form leaks in the seams and can cause wood rot behind the gutter.

When is it necessary to replace gutters?

If the exterior of your house has mold or peeling paint, it could be a sign that your gutters need fixing or replacing. Snow and ice can build up within the gutters, causing damage or leaks to the home. (It is a myth that gutters cause ice buildup - instead it is caused by heat escaping too quickly from your home.)

Clogged downspouts and debris in gutters can cause them to pull away or sag from the home. They may not be pitched correctly, leaving standing water that attracts insects and mold.

When it comes to keeping leaves out of your gutters and downspouts, there is no reason to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to solve this common problem. There are many new and expensive gimmicks on the market today. C & C Seamless Gutters can solve these problems without spending all your hard earned money!

Other signs that the gutters may not be working correctly are cracks in the foundation of the house or water in the basement. Clogged gutters can cause water buildup, forcing it to overflow and causing water buildup around the foundation.

In any of these situations, getting a gutter professional such as C & C Seamless Gutters to assess the problem is the best step you can take to correcting your problem.

Do gutters cause ice build-up?

Ice that continually freezes in gutters can be a pain in the neck for homeowners. Once ice has clogged the gutter or the drainpipe, thawing causes water to overflow the gutter, and subsequent freezing can lead to roof damage and dangerous ice patches on the ground. Understanding what causes ice build up is the first step in solving the problem.

The main cause of ice build up on the roof has to do with Poor Attic Insulation. Heat escaping through the roof of the house melts the bottom of the snow that is on the roof. This melted snow trickles down until it reaches the edge of the roof. When it reaches the gutter, it is no longer warmed by the heat from the house and it freezes into ice. This process can eventually build up large amounts of ice on and around the gutter.

Other reasons for ice build-up are blocked drainpipes or improperly placed gutters.

Are colors available?

Yes. A wide variety of colors are available for standard aluminum gutters. The high quality baked enamel finish never needs painting.

C & C Seamless Gutters takes pride in the small details such as matching colors for gutters and downspouts, and making sure the screws are painted to blend in on the downspouts.

How are they installed?

C & C Seamless Gutters will arrive at your home with a seamless gutter machine. Each gutter is measured and cut to specific measurements, then screwed to the home.

One of the most important aspects of installation is a proper pitch to the gutter so fine debris and water flow and drain properly.

C & C Seamless Gutters carefully assesses your situation to find the best location to direct runoff away from your house.

C & C Seamless Gutters uses hidden hangers which interlock into the gutter for a cleaner look. We also space the hangers closely to offer more strength and durability against the weight of snow or ice.

At C & C Seamless Gutters, aesthetics is one of the important parts of installation.
