Aluminum Seamless Gutters in Maine
Aluminum Seamless Gutters
At Gutter Solutions of Maine, our Aluminum Seamless Gutter Systems are designed with Maine seasons in mind. We use .032 Aluminum with Baked on Enamel for our gutter systems, which is thicker and more sturdy than the products used by others. It’s most important for your gutter system to be properly installed, which is why our company chooses to hang gutters every 12 inches versus 24 inches, meaning your gutters can hold up to the heaviest of snow and ice accumulations.
Aluminum seamless gutters have a number of benefits that a homeowner or property manager should take into consideration when planning a new gutter system. Did you know Aluminum gutters make up nearly 80% of all gutters installed in the United States? This isn’t just by accident, it’s because Aluminum Seamless Gutters can hold more water than traditional gutters, are very durable, resist rust, are an inexpensive option for running water away from your roof. They are also well known for being very durable in the extreme winter weather we experience here in Maine. At Gutter Solutions of Maine, we offer 5″ & 6″ gutter systems in either the common “K-Style” or more historical “Half Round” design.
Gutter Styles: K-Style Vs. Half Round
K-style gutters are the most common gutter style and have the highest rate of flow (capacity). Half round gutters are a more traditional style of gutter. This option has better overall flow and is less likely to clog due to its smoother, less angular natural, compared to their k-style counterparts. Half round aluminum gutters can be more expensive to install due to their special curved edges & unique hanging hardware. Ultimately, which style you choose is most importantly a personal preference in what you feel looks best with your style home and best suits your taste.

Benefits of Aluminum Seamless Gutters
- Less maintenance: Gutters with sectional joints are prone to debris accumulation. Leaves, twigs, and other such things accumulate in the gutters and may clog them. There are other problems that accompany this debris. Seamless gutters are more firmly fixed, and hence, there are no chances of clogging and debris accumulation. This way, seamless gutters require much less cleaning and maintenance compared to the sectional gutters.
- No leakages: Seamless gutters only have fasteners and joints at the corners and downspouts. The streamlined construction minimizes the potential for future leaks. Due to the absence of joints and seals that can erode or gather debris, seamless gutters offer far better protection to the property.
- Better rate of return: You might have to spend a bigger amount on seamless gutters initially, but due to low maintenance and repair costs, they offer a much higher return and pay themselves back in very less time.
- Aesthetics: Aluminum Seamless gutters look much better than sectional gutters with all the joints and fasteners. They protect the aesthetic appeal of the property.
