3 Important Things to Know About Your Gutters

By October 14, 2015October 17th, 2023No Comments

Next to your roof, gutters play an important role when it comes to protecting a home. Without well-maintained gutters, your home is susceptible to a range of exterior damage.

Here are three things that will help you keep your gutters in good shape, and prevent damage:

Gutters Serve as Your Home’s Drainage System

The main function of your gutters is to collect rainwater from your roof and channel it away from your home. Your gutters catch the excess water and prevent it from soaking your windows, siding, and overall foundation. In essence, your gutters are responsible for protecting your home against most water-related problems. The life span of a standard gutter system is 20 years. Of course, it depends on how you maintain it.

Gutters Encounter Various Problems

Some debris, such as leaves and branches may accumulate in your gutters in while they are collecting water when it rains. The issue with loose debris is that it tends to decompose quickly, matt down, and compress into a solid sheet. This damp material can clog your gutters over time. The problem with gutter congestion is the damage it causes doesn’t just stop there; it can result in basement flooding, paint damage, mold formation, and soil erosion. Worse, it can lead to foundation cracking.
