Yeah, I have another question:whistling

Thanks to you guys that have been helping me out along the way!

I hate installing gutters!.... The only experience I have is pre-made K-gutters with all the PITA fittings, though I have re-installed seamless sytems, and it's SO much better/easier. We almost exclusively use a seamless sub-contractor.

Is there any reason "not" to use seamless gutters?

My folks have an insanely frugal, overly ambitous, DIY attitude....well, they are set to install their own gutters.:shutup: The only service they've ever hired is HVAC repair, carpet install and roto-rooter..........or me. So my mom is stoked about some internet gutter supplier (forget the name...kinda blocked it out)...pre made with fittings, delivered per online order.....

I gave them two options...hire our sub, or use our local siding supplier come roll out the lengths and I'll install them. They, don't want seamless incase there's snow/storm damage. If so, a sectioned system would be easier to repair.

I kinda just wanna walk away, get back to my real job, and let them deal with it....

You got it right, there is no reason on earth not to use seamless gutters, price in gutter, fittings, hangers retail compared to seamless (around here its like $3.50 a foot tops installed). Then after installing the DIY gutter system come the leaks, eventually at every joint/fitting, they just start appearing like magic.
