Seamless rain gutters are just as the name implies – seamless. There isn’t a break in the gutter.
Since there is no seam, there are no leaks. This is why they are the most popular type of gutter today. The only seams are at inside and outside corners. Tropical Gutter Prosseamless gutters are sealed using Geocell, screwed and warranted for five years not to leak.
Seamless gutters are usually made from aluminum, but they can be made from copper. They are made with a seamless gutter machine that is brought to your home by the gutter contractor. Each individual gutter is customized to fit your home.
With a conventional sectional gutter system there are many sections of guttering all pieced together by snap-in-place connectors. Over time these sections form leaks in the seams and can cause wood rot behind the gutter.

- Greatly reduces the possibility of leaks
- Eliminates unsightly seams
- Baked on enamel finish never needs painting

All claims may be submitted in via email to email@example.com.
What is NOT Covered in Labor Warranty: This Labor Warranty shall not extend to any defect or product failure resulting from: (1) Natural, Act-of-God occurrences such as, but not limited to, lightning, hurricanes, hail, earthquakes, flood, tornadoes, and falling objects; (2) damage to the property or structure to which guttering system has been applied caused by settling, cracking, movement, shifting, distorting, or splitting including but not limited to structural failure of walls, roofs, foundations, fascia, or rafters; (3) inadequate or improper ventilation of the home, or accumulation of water or mold due to structural deficiencies and/or insufficient drainage; (4) any deliberate act or negligence of the purchaser, workman, or any other person when installing or maintaining surfaces of structure to which materials have been applied; (5) normal wear and tear as per manufacturer specifications (in case of claim, manufacturing company will have final say if product has to be replaced); (6) color fading, staining, replacement of any rotten wood, water behind gutters without eave metal, or any erosion; (7) any installed materials not provided by Tropical Gutter Pros; (8) expansion or contraction of windows, siding, roofing, concrete or trim; (9) improper maintenance of guttering system by customer, including, but not limited to clogging caused by leaves or debris in gutter.
The main cause of customer complaints is gutters overflowing due to debris in the gutter. Tropical Gutter Pros is not responsible for general maintenance, inspections, and cleaning of guttering systems. Gutter cleanings are not covered by any warranty.

Rain gutters are not designed to make a watertight seal against the fascia board. Water running between the gutter and fascia board or behind the fascia board is usually caused by one of the following:
- Short, broken or old curled-under shingles causing the water to wick back onto the fascia board.
- Pockets in roof shingles caused by the top of the fascia board being higher than the roof decking, allowing the water to track between the shingles and down behind the fascia board. This may cause rotting of the roof decking, rafter ends, fascia board, or eave overhang.
These cases are not caused by our gutter system and therefore not covered under our Labor Warranty. We will recommend drip edge extender during the estimate if this is noticeable, but it is not in all cases.
Tropical Gutter Pros will not be responsible for any peripheral needs or issues related to the guttering system. This includes leaf build-up or clogging, cleaning dirty gutters, issues with drainage or dry-well system, etc. Tropical Gutter Pros will not replace a component of the system if it is not faulty while replacing something that is faulty and under warranty. Tropical Gutter Pros is also not responsible for another person or contractor’s work on the gutter system following our install. This includes but is not limited to a roofer changing the pitch of the roof, the overhang of the shingle or any aspect of the roof as it related to the gutter system at the time of our install.
Installation, removal, repair, adjustment, tampering or re-installation of any Tropical Gutter Pros guttering system or component by anyone other than Tropical Gutter Pros voids any and all warranties within this document.

Tropical Gutter Pros shall not be liable for injury to persons or damage to property, structure, or contents, or for incidental, special or consequential damages for breach of any written or implied warranty on defects in workmanship.
