While many homeowners take their gutters for granted, they’re actually a critical part of a well-functioning house. Huff ‘N Puff explains the key role of your gutters in keeping your home beautiful and structurally sound.
Gutters Prevent Water Damage
The main role of your gutters is to draw water away from the exterior walls and redirect it to the ground. Without gutters, the rainwater falling onto your roof would seep into the wall or siding of your home, leaving unsightly marks and irreversible damage over time.
If you have old sectional-style gutters, we recommend replacing them with seamless gutters. Unlike sectional gutters, seamless gutters do not have spaces between them that can cause water leaks. Installing seamless gutters is a great way to bolster your house’s protection against water damage.
Gutters Protect Your Foundation
Without gutters, rainwater can cause considerable damage to your home’s foundation. Check your home’s foundation to see if there are signs of water stains and wearing. Consider our gutters replacement services if you find such signs. The cost of getting your existing gutters replaced is less than the maintenance and repair fees you’re looking at for your damaged foundation.
Installing Gutter Helmet Makes Cleaning Easier
Cleaning your gutters on your own is tedious, time consuming, and dangerous. With Gutter Helmet, our innovative gutter protection system, you’ll never have to worry about cleaning your gutters again. This system shields your gutters and prevents leaves and debris from getting into the actual waterway.
