Three Reasons Why Your Home Needs Gutters
- Foundation Problems – The expansion and contraction of the soil that surrounds your home is the number one reason for slab failure. After a period of rainy weather, the soil around the perimeter of your home expands as it becomes saturated with moisture. A dry, hot summer following the rain can cause the soil around your foundation to contract and pull away. As this cycle repeats, support to the foundation can be compromised leading to cracked masonry as well as sticking doors and windows. A properly designed and installed gutter system keeps the soil surrounding your home at a consistent moisture level by directing roof runoff safely away from the house.
- Staining of Masonry and Siding – Rainwater cascading off an unguttered roof will hit the ground with enough force to cause splashback. Within this splashback are dirt, grass, and minerals that end up on the exterior of your home. Over a short period of time, a stain appears that can be difficult to remove or hide.
- Damage to Landscaping – Plants, flowers, mulch and soil located under the drip line of an unguttered roof can suffer from water runoff of a thunderstorm. Additionally, this runoff can result in an overwatering condition that could permit harmful fungus to develop as well as attract ants, roaches and termites.
