If you don’t have gutters, you’re looking at a plethora of problems, which can be costly and serious. Fail to keep up with its regular maintenance? Even more problems.
Unfortunately, gutters are usually overlooked by many homeowners, but they shouldn’t be. See why gutters and proper gutter maintenance is so important.
Gutters have one job: to divert water away from your home. Heavy rains can wreak havoc on your home, especially your siding, windows, doors, and foundation. Without gutters, you could wind up with a long list of serious and costly damages. Water will pool around the foundation of your home, seep into areas it shouldn’t, and cause extensive water damage issues.
Your home’s gutters protect the foundation of your home, prevent erosion, protect your landscaping, and prevent basement flooding. They will prevent staining to the exterior of your home, mitigate paint damage, and stop mold and mildew growth.
