Gutters are the unsung hero of your home. Many homeowners neglect or completely forget about gutters, but they are an essential part of your roofing system. The purpose of gutters, as you probably know, is to catch and redirect water being drained from your roof away from your home. If your home didn’t have gutters, or if they’re damaged, you could be in serious trouble.Get A Quote
Why Gutters Are Important
soil erosion around your home and protect your landscaping
damage to hardscaping like walkways and driveways
water from seeping into and flooding your basement (if you have one) or cracking/damaging your home’s foundation.
rot, mold and mildew from developing in your roof, attic, and exterior walls.
standing water from forming around your home, which gets rid of insects like mosquitoes.
getting you wet every time you leave your home!
As you can see, uncontrolled streams of water falling from your roof can cause a lot of problems over time, and without them, you would be left with a long list of costly repairs. Gutters are an essential part of extending the life of your home. Luckily, modern gutters come in a variety of materials like plastic, steel, copper, and aluminum, the two most common shapes being: K-Style and half-round. All of these different options can be combined to fit your budget and compliment your home’s architecture.
