When it comes to gutters, no one really thinks about them outside of the construction industry. Most people know what they are and what they do, but they do not often think about how important they are to their home. In fact, most people do not even think to check if a home has a gutter system when they are buying a home, even if they have a roof inspection.
Yet gutters are essential to protecting your home from water damage.
If you do not have a gutter system in place on your home you place your home at risk for water damage to the exterior of your home as well as to the foundation. Controlling where water goes after it leaves the roof is essential to protecting your home. A gutter system regulates where the water flows and helps it drain away from your home.
If your home already has a gutter system that is over 10 years old, it may be time to replace the system. Older systems can weaken over time due to the stress caused by roof debris and ice. Ice can be especially damaging to your gutter system because of the weight and how it causes water to expand.
Older systems may also not be constructed from the new materials used for gutters now. These older materials are more prone to erosion and cracking because of their composition. Newer materials now used for gutters are more weather resisitant and stronger than previous systems.
If you are not sure if you need a new gutter system, have a professional contractor inspect your roof and gutters. They will be able to provide you with accurate information on whether you need to repair or replace any components of your roof or gutters.
Having a roofing contractor install your gutter system has many advantages. Your contractor has the experience and knowledge to install a system that will meet the needs of your home. Gutters installed by a contractor will be made from contractor grade materials and can even match the color of your home.
