Why do I need Gutters?
Homeowners often do not realize the important role the rain gutter system has in protecting the home from the damaging effects of water. We think it is vital that you understand why you have rain gutters on your home in the first place.
Water Damages Your Home
Water is very damaging to the structure of your home, the roof, foundation and exterior siding of your house can be penetrated by the smallest amount of water, as the saying goes, water will find a way. What may start out as a small amount of water over time will cause a lot of damage if it is allowed to continue. Once water penetrates the outside of your home it will not take long before it enters the interior and starts to cause visible damage there.
How Rain Gutters Help
Most water damage caused by rain will start around the roof structure, fascia, soffit, and foundation. Your rain gutter system is designed to move rain water away from these areas to protect your home. If your gutters are not functioning for any reason, including the need to be cleaned, not only are they not protecting your home from water, they may actually make the problem worse, by overflowing in the exact areas, roof, fascia, soffit and foundation where most water damage problems begin. If you wait to clean your gutters until you notice them overflowing or you see the damage caused by clogged gutters you did not clean them soon enough.
