Why are gutters so important?
Gutter systems have one purpose and one purpose only; to direct water away from your home. This may not seem like an important task, but it actually plays a huge role in protecting your home from disaster.
Water that isn’t redirected could cause:
Rain water can be pushed onto the edge of your roof to rot wood or rust metal whenever gutters flood. If the wood rots through enough, water can enter your home and cause flooding that can ruin the interior walls, flooring, and your personal property.
Water is one of the most powerful elements out there and it can erode even the strongest of materials. Flooding gutters can erode both soil and cement, eating away at a home’s foundation and causing your home to become unstable.
Soil erosion doesn’t seem like a concern but when soil wears away, it can be a big problem for your property. While soil erosion is naturally occurring, a damaged gutter can speed up the process collectively in a single or multiple areas. If the soil around a tree erodes, it can become unstable and fall onto your home, cars in the driveway, or even your neighbor’s property. Gardens can be washed away and flooding can occur in the ditches that soil erosion forms.
Siding can be made of many materials but if it’s made of wood that isn’t properly treated or cement that’s porous enough, a flooding gutter can cause rot, decay, mold growth, and chip any paint. Siding repairs for extensive damage can be expensive but getting new gutters can prevent this if it hasn’t happened already.
