Seven Reasons to Upgrade Your Gutters

Rain gutters serve an important part in protecting your home from water damage by diverting water away from your home.  Beware of gutters that don’t function as they should or suffer the following ramifications.

1. Interior Flooding

Without properly working gutters on your home, water is not diverted away which can cause basement flooding.

2. Rotting Fascia

Fascia provides the finished look to a home’s trim. It covers rafter ends and creates a surface along the edge of the roof. It protects the house from severe weather by creating a barrier against precipitation. Fascia boards also prevent rodents from getting into your home’s walls because it covers gaps between the wall & the roof.  If clogged gutters overfill, they can cause excess water to hit wooden fascia.  This can cause it to start breaking down in a matter of hours.  Replacing fascia on your entire home can be a costly & time consuming process.

3. Bowing Driveways

Gutters that work improperly can cause large puddles of water to break concrete down from the surface.  This can result in cracking and bowing in your driveway.

4. Landscape Erosion

Whether you hire a professional or do it yourself, landscaping is an investment.  Lack of or clogged gutters can send water rushing towards your landscaping which and can knock over plants & shrubs.  Water can also cause soil erosion and dips in your yard.

5. Pest Control

Here in the Midwest, mosquitoes are plentiful in the summer months.  Sitting water in gutters makes for the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes, making it difficult for you to enjoy the outdoors.

6. Stay Dry When Entering Your Home

Gutters deter water from rushing off the roof over the entrances to your home and porch.  Having gutters eliminates this at your home’s entry.  Not having them leaves all that enter your home in a rainstorm to be sopping wet.
