Seamless gutters provide a more streamlined look than traditional sectional gutters, which have multiple seams and joints. Instead of being a functional eyesore, seamless gutters can add detail to a home while improving its curb appeal. Costing from $3 to $5 per linear foot, seamless vinyl gutters are lightweight and budget-friendly. While they’re easy to install, they’re not as durable as other materials, don’t come in as many style choices, and can crack from frigid temperatures and warp in hot weather.
