Minnesota is not known to be an easy weather state. Whether it be extremely cold and snow-filled winters or mega rain events, living in Minnesota is never boring when it comes to precipitation. As a result, contractors in Minnesota have made a living of determining the best options to help protect your home from a weather catastrophe, which keeps you from loss of use and involving insurance. One of these options is seamless gutters. In places like Minnesota, which have extreme weather condition, seamless gutters can protect your biggest asset, your home.
What are Seamless Gutters?
Next time you are driving around the neighborhood, look up at the gutters on your neighbor's homes. Most of the time, you will see a very familiar picture. The white gutter is attached to the siding of the road with a drainage spout at one end and a lip at the other. Then, you may see another gutter to the side of the house, and so on. They are not attached, and they typically have openings between them. This is a fairly antiquated guttering system. It works when you are not subject to intense rain and winds, but many times, it allows for issues such as ice dams, poor water drainage, and even leaks into the home. Seamless gutters remove these issues. Seamless gutters connect effortlessly around the roof of your home, connecting at both the inside and outside outlets as well as the roof. They create a sealed gutter system that protects every corner of your home.
The Seamless Gutter Benefit
Nothing is perfect. However, seamless gutters are very close. They create an almost foolproof fortress against rain and water damage around your roof's siding. By connecting at each corner and the drain spout, they allow little room for water's escape. This helps reduce the risk of ice dams in the winter and reduce the risk of water damage to your home throughout the entire year. Water really only has one option of escape: the drain spout. Another benefit of seamless gutters is the relatively low maintenance involved. These types of gutter systems do not require the consistent reapplication of sealant and solder that traditional gutter systems typically require. Additionally, they are easy to clean as there is less risk of leaves and other elements getting caught throughout the gutter system.
Living in Minnesota is an amazing adventure as well as providing a wonderful place to raise a family and experience America at its finest. However, the price is extreme weather that is not for the weak of heart. One way to keep your family healthy and happy is to keep your home standing and preventing disaster before it hits. Seamless gutters are a perfect solution to help prevent leaks in your roof due to water damage from storms.
