Seamless Gutter in relation to SMACNA

I have been told by a contractor that hired a sub that does not support 7" seamless gutters that any seamless gutter over 50 feet is not to code. I responded that is for sectional and not seamless manufactured on site. I need 75' and 100' runs. I do not believe SMACNA guidance applies

Thanks for any help.

My SMACNA manual is of early 60's vintage and does not address seamless gutters. Later versions may.

I have put on 100 foot sections of seamless gutters with no problems regarding warping. I dont see what the issue is.

Can you ask him what the problem might be?
