Why are Gutters Important?

Why are Gutters Important?

Sep 17, 2020

You don’t often think about your home’s gutters, but they’re an important part of keeping it safe, sound, and in good condition.

Let’s put it this way: if your home doesn’t have gutters (or they’re not working as intended), you’re inviting all sorts of trouble.

Here is why gutters are so important:

•    Keep water away from your home: Above all else, gutters are designed to keep water away from your home, including but not limited to its foundation, doors, windows, and siding. Without gutters, water will pool around your foundation, leak into areas it shouldn’t, and likely cause damage.
•    Protect your landscaping: Without gutters, the landscaping around your home will get pounded with water when it rains. Furthermore, erosion becomes a major concern, which can kill shrubs, plants, trees, flowers, and more.
•    Prevent flooding: For example, if your home doesn’t have gutters, water will begin to gather around its foundation. And when that happens, there’s a greater risk of basement flooding.

Now do you see why gutters are so important? When was the last time you inspected your gutters? If you don’t remember, it’s time to take action.
