For a lot of reasons, experts recommend having a gutter system. But have you ever really given the thought to why you need them and what function they serve in your home?
Well, if you have no idea why you need a gutter system, keep on reading to find out.
Gutters, for one, are installed for two specific reasons:
They are designed to protect your home from water and prevent the damage that arises from water pouring on your roof.
Without gutters, here’s what happens every time it rains:
Rainwater will be flowing directly from your roof to the ground (your home’s foundation), this falling water will often wash away the topsoil, and as it continues to rain, more and more soil will be swept away.
When this happens, the slope of your home will be affected. Instead of water flowing away from your home, the water may change cause and flow towards your home.
When this happens, your foundation will begin to settle, and eventually, you’ll start to notice you have cracked walls or uneven flooring. Not to forget that frequent soil erosion will also wash away your landscaping.
As we mentioned before, rainwater may change its cause and start flowing towards your home.
This action may cause significant pressure on your foundation, hence allowing water to seep into your basement, and soon enough, you may find yourself dealing with a flooded or water-damaged basement.
- Siding damage
Rainwater or melting snow emanating from your roof often carries debris and dirt. Without a gutter system, these dirt particles can stain your siding.
In addition, moisture buildup can result in mold and fungus growth on your siding, which will compromise its looks.
These issues can be costly to repair or replace. So, how about you choose to protect your home and prevent these damages by properly installing gutters in your home.
