You probably don’t have time to regularly check your gutters. If you are like most homeowners, you may think they’re just a minor part of your home. Unless, of course, something goes wrong with them. It’s hard to imagine that something as small as your gutters can be so important to the overall value of your property.
The truth is, broken gutter systems can cause major problems for your home. When gutters are not working at their peak, rainwater or melted snow can seep into your home and start damaging different components.
Having quality gutter systems installed by professional roofing contractors is vital to preventing a variety of problems. In addition to keeping debris out of your home and being able to withstand snow loads and punishing winds, gutters can help prevent the following problems:
A flood in your basement creates costly problems. If you have damaged gutters, your home is susceptible to flooding because your gutters are not properly channeling water away from your property. Your home could be at risk of having mold and all sorts of water damage.
Your home’s foundation depends on the ground being solid. If your gutters are full of debris, the only place for the undrained water to go is on the ground right next to your property’s foundation. Over time, overflowing water from the gutter can cause the soil to erode, damaging the foundation. Slowly, the foundation will start to crack, resulting in a variety of hazards, such as flooding and your home collapsing. With RainTech Roofing, Sheet Metal and Gutters quality gutter service, you can be sure your home will remain dry all year round.
When installed the right way, gutter systems can direct water away from your home to an area where it cannot affect your home. On the other hand, gutters that aren’t working properly create stagnant water, which makes it an ideal place for mosquitoes and other bugs to breed. Water damage can make wood parts of your home more susceptible to mold and bacteria as well as termite infestation.
