What is a seamless gutter machine?
Seamless Gutter Machines are used to create seamless rain gutters. These machines come in a variety of different shapes and brands. There are also several types, or profiles of rain gutters that all require specific machines in order to create.
Not only that, these seamless gutter creating machines weigh a massive amount! Specially outfitted trailers and vans must be dedicated to each profile of gutters a rain gutter company has on offer. With these huge barrier to entry considered, it’s no wonder that Pacific Coast Gutters is one of only few companies within the greater OC / LA area that offers ALL available gutter profiles, let alone more than one!
How do seamless gutter machines work?
The first step is to acquire a roll of aluminum or copper metal. The machine has a rod where the roll can be mounted. Then, the machine rolls the metal through a series of cylinders to shape it into the familiar gutter shape we all know and love. It comes out the other end, typically with measuring tape attached as it rolls out. When the appropriate length is reached, it is cut, then shaped to fit corners by hand to accommodate downspouts and corners.
How much does a seamless gutter making machine cost?
The machines used to create seamless rain gutters are extremely expensive. They range from around $10,000 for a used model, and all the way up to $30,000 for high end versions.
How long do seamless gutter machines last?
Gutter machines can last upwards of 15 years if properly maintained. However, gutter maintenance is a vocation in itself. It’s not unusual for burrs of metal and dirt to find their way into sensitive parts of the machinery. Since it’s not exactly like a car, troubleshooting these issues can be a real headache
