If asked which part of your house is the most important, you might say the roof. That’s a great answer, as the roof keeps weather from getting inside the house. A roof keeps rain, snow and hail from falling directly into your home from overhead, but no roof can protect your home’s foundation from water damage without a proper rain gutter system.
When water rolls from the roof unchecked, it falls directly beside the foundation, if it doesn’t first seep into the house through the walls. Either way, it will find its way into your home, causing costly damage. Rainwater will drench the soil around your home’s foundation. From there it’s just a matter of time before it might seep through your finished basement walls, eventually ruining paneling or drywall, or resulting in an outright flood.
Proper rain gutters carry water away from the house. This protects your home’s eaves, fascia, interior and exterior walls and the foundation. Soil around the home will return to stable condition, and flooding in basements and under slab foundations can be avoided. Damage to decking and patios can be dodged, as well.
Gutters must be properly installed, and they must be in good working order at all times. You know that gutter maintenance can be a pain, and even dangerous. Gutters may fill with leaves and other debris that inhibit their performance, resulting in damage to your home, despite having rain gutters. Older gutter systems tend to fall apart, and should be replaced, or better yet, upgraded.
