Are you wondering why you need rain gutters? Actually, gutters are very important to the health of your entire home.
Rain Gutters have one job… to move water away from a building or home so the structure does not suffer from water damage. When water is not diverted away from your home, all sorts of problems develop: - Cracked, uneven, or damaged foundation. - Staining on the exterior of the home, siding...
- Soil erosion around your house. - Leaks and/or flooded basement or crawlspace.
- Mold and mildew growth inside and outside. - Moist environment attracts termites and other insects - Settling and cracking of sidewalks, driveways, and other concrete.
- Rotting fascia boards at the roof line.
These problems can be avoided by making sure gutters are installed around your entire home and the downspouts are directing water at least 4 feet away from the base of the building. we recommend 3 x 4 downspouts which are much more resistant to clogging.
