It’s important to have a good gutter system on your home to prevent water damage. Without gutter systems, some homes build up large amounts water, which cause flooding or exterior damage to the structure. There are a wide variety of gutter systems, but they can typically be purchased and installed at a very reasonable price, especially with companies like Leaf Guard.
How do gutters protect my home?
Gutters protect your homes’ foundation by diverting water in the opposite direction of the house. This helps prevent leaks and floods (and in turn, keeps you from having to spend thousands in foundation repair). Gutters also protect painted or stained surfaces that could be washed away with water.
Effective gutters are made from a variety of materials such as steel, iron, PVC, stone, and many others. Water is typically collected in the installed gutter off the edges of your roof and is fed to a downspout that directs the water to the base of the house. The water is then pointed away from the house or in the direction of a nearby drainage system. Gutter covers are also a common purchase as well to prevent falling leaves, dirt, or other buildup from accumulating and stopping up your gutter system which can require gutter replacement and repair.
