Gutter systems are used to guide rain and water off of your roof and away from your foundation. They may seem like a small part of your home, but they actually have a very important job. Here are 3 reasons why gutter systems are incredibly important.
- Protects Your Foundation. A correctly installed gutter system will divert water away from the foundation of your home. Pooling water can seep into your foundation and create instability in the structure of your home. It can also prevent erosion of the supporting soil around your foundation.
- Reduces the Risk of Indoor Flooding. If water is allowed to seep into your foundation, it can also make its way into your home. If your gutters are damaged or clogged, water can pool in the soil around your home and will soak its way into your home. It can cause mold, rot, and even flooding. Having an effective gutter system will reduce the risk of water damage in your home.
- Prevents Water Damage to Your Roof. Gutter systems will direct and drain water off of your roof. Inappropriate drainage can lead to deteriorating shingles, rot problems, or mold in your attic. Having a gutter system will lengthen the life of your roof and save you from big problems in the future.
