Why Gutters Are Important
Gutters divert rainwater off your roof and away from your home. In some parts of the U.S., precipitation is so low that gutters may not be necessary. However, in Ohio, a functioning gutter system is a requirement if you do not want your home to suffer from structural damage, damp interior walls, and mold growth.
One inch of rainfall on the average roof equals hundreds of gallons of water. Columbus receives an average of 56 inches of rain a year, which means up to 50,000 gallons of water or even more that must be diverted.

If you wish to preserve the value and structural integrity of your home or office, gutters are necessary. However, bad gutters and downspouts—whether past their functional life or improperly installed—cause far more problems than they solve.
A high-quality, professionally installed gutter system is one of the best investments you can make in your home. New gutters direct rainwater away from your foundation, siding, and landscaping more effectively, preserving your home’s value and beauty.
Standard gutters, which are installed in sections, were the only option for decades, and of course, they work. But the joints along the length of the gutters do allow for some leakage. While traditional gutters are absolutely better than no gutters at all, today, you have another choice.
New technology makes seamless gutters an affordable option, and once you understand the difference, you will never look back. Gutter sections are custom-cut right at your location for a perfect fit, so seams are required at corners only.
All gutters from Buckeye Seamless are made of heavy-gauge 0.032-inch aluminum, unlike the thinner, cheaper 0.027-inch aluminum used by most competitors. Buckeye Seamless partners with Mastic and Ply Gem to offer you a wide variety of gutter options and colors. The exclusive Hangtite gutter-hanging system is attached every 24 inches, exceeding the industry-standard spacing of 30 inches, giving a much more stable and reliable hold.
Buckeye Seamless offers the strongest unconditional warranties in the gutter industry:
- Five years on labor.
- Lifetime on materials.
Gutter systems are designed to direct rainwater away from your home so it can soak into the ground without harming structures or causing annoyances. When gutters become blocked with leaves, branches, and other debris, the gutters cannot do their job. A blocked gutter is as good as no gutter at all; sometimes even worse.
If you are looking for an easy way to burn a weekend, cleaning your gutters is a great way to do it. Even if you do not mind taking the time to do your own exterior maintenance, cleaning gutters can be a dangerous proposition. If you do not have the knowledge and tools to do the job properly, you run the risk of injuring yourself.
Buckeye Seamless cleans your gutters and downspouts by hand. Blowers tend to create a mess by blowing water, dirt, and debris onto the house. Hand-cleaning means less clean-up for you. The technicians bag all debris and remove it from your property.
While cleaning your gutters, your Buckeye Seamless technicians will inspect your roof for broken shingles and any other potential problems at no additional charge. Techs also clean the actual face of the gutter, removing black streaks and restoring the original color.
When Should I Clean my Gutters?
The best time to clean your gutters is spring and autumn. Most homeowners are aware of the problems that fallen leaves cause. However, many do not realize that additional tree debris falling after the blooming period can clog gutters even worse than dead leaves can.
Buckeye Seamless suggests cleaning your gutters twice a year; however, when cleaning them in the fall, we suggest that you wait until all the leaves have fallen to get the job done. This will save you money and keep your gutters in top working order.
A properly installed gutter system is a must, but such a system requires maintenance and repairs from time to time. If faulty gutters are not repaired promptly, they can lead to larger issues, such as leaks and rotten fascia board.
Even if you have not noticed a problem with your gutters, you should schedule an occasional professional checkup from Buckeye Seamless. The full gutter tune-up (a $350 value) includes:
- Cleaning of up to 200 linear feet of gutters.
- Caulking and sealing of gutter endcaps, outlets, and miter joints.
- Tightening of existing gutter and downspout brackets and fasteners.
- Visual testing of the gutter slope to ensure proper flow.
- Visual inspection of ground drainage and runoff.
- A general inspection of the entire exterior of your home, including the roof.
If you do suspect an issue and need to schedule an estimate anyway, you might consider booking a tune-up, at which time your tech can tell you if any gutter repair is required beyond the tune-up.
If it is time to replace your gutters, then it is time to switch to a modern, low-maintenance system. Gutters with gutter coversare designed to keep leaves, branches, and other debris out of your gutter lines. In turn, you will need to make far fewer service calls over the life of your gutters.
Any home improvement is a significant investment, but you can look at your gutter replacement project as an opportunity to increase the value of your home and free up time for more enjoyable pursuits.
