When you are looking at a roofing system for your home, don’t forget to include a gutter system. Gutters can extend the life of your roof as well as provide additional protection to your home from water damage. If you already have a good roof, you may want to consider installing gutters to help protect your home.
Water has the potential to cause serious damage to any home. The ability to seep into the smallest cracks or cause damage from repeated contact is very serious, and home owners must make every effort to keep water from infiltrating their homes. A proper gutter system can help manage the water that runs off your roof from a storm.
Gutters are designed to manage water and debris flow from your roof to an area away from your home. Using a downspout system, all the rainwater and ice is directed to flow to one area and then rain to a specified area away from the home. Some home owners may even drain it to a rain barrel. Keeping the water from entering into the ground directly next to your home protects the foundation of your home.
Water that continually pools around the foundation of your home can cause the foundation to weaken or crack. It can also cause the ground to become soft and allow the foundation to shift. Either one of these scenarios are very dangerous to the integrity of your home.
Guiding the water away from the home also prevents the water from streaking down the sides of the home. This can cause water marks on the exterior of the home as well as cause mold or algae growth. A continual dripping into the landscaping from water draining off of the roof can also lead to ruts forming in your landscape.
Having a gutter system installed can help you avoid all of these issues and prevent other water damage from occurring to your home.
