Premier Sectional Gutter Installation Specialists
Sectional gutters are a popular gutter system to DIY because they don’t require any special equipment to install. However, like any gutter system, it is crucial to do so with precision. Sectional gutter systems are made up of several small segments of gutter which are then joined together to form a larger section. Because of their many joints and seams, there is a greater potential for leaks and cracks if the segments of your gutters are misaligned or not properly joined together.
Homeowners like the idea of sectional gutters because they are more affordable than other gutter systems. At Rival Roofing, we want to ensure that you get the best quality products that are properly installed. We’re happy to go over the pros and cons of sectional gutters. And if they are the right choice for you, we’d love to install your new sectional gutter system to ensure that it works for your roof and lasts for years.
What to Know About Sectional Gutters
Sectional gutters are pieced together and have multiple seams where they meet at connectors. Each corner piece and end cap connect each side, but leaking is not uncommon given the number of seams. Debris can also get trapped at the seams. However, these gutters are an affordable option to install the necessary gutters on your home. We also have experience with gutter guards, which are fantastic for preventing blockage in your gutter system.
FAQs about Sectional Gutters
Can I DIY sectional gutters?
It is possible to purchase sectional gutters at your local home improvement store for DIY use. However, when you install your own gutters, you risk misaligning the sections or damaging the gutters. Having a professional gutter installer will ensure your gutters are properly installed and backed with a workmanship warranty!
How much do sectional gutters cost?
The final cost of your sectional gutter installation will depend on the size of your home and the type of material your gutters are made of. You’ll find sectional gutters are most commonly made of aluminum, vinyl, or steel. Our team is happy to help go over the options that will best fit your budget.
Can sectional gutters be repaired rather than replaced?
Minor damages to your gutters, such as small cracks or holes, can often be repaired. Larger cracks, broken joints, or sagging are more severe and will likely require a replacement. Our team will come to inspect your current gutter system to help you make the most cost-effective decision.
How long does it take to install sectional gutters?
Gutter installation can take a day or two, depending on the size of your home. Homeowners often do not need to be home during installation!
What are some of the disadvantages of sectional gutters compared to other gutter systems?
Over time, sectional gutters may weaken due to varying weather conditions. The constant contraction and expansion of the gutter segments can impact the seams of your gutter system, which will then need to be repaired or replaced.
