Blog The Importance of Quality Gutters to Your Business March 13, 2017February 4, 2019Chelsea WelshGutter Helmet® Investing in high-quality gutters is a smart business decision. While choosing a lower quality gutter or gutter guard and going with a less reputable contractor for the installation might save you some money now, you’ll end up paying far more in the long run for maintenance, repairs and premature replacement. And that’s not even getting into the expense of repairing water damage to your building should your gutters become clogged during a storm. In today’s post, we highlight three reasons why it pays to invest in high-quality gutters for your commercial property. Keeps Clients Comfortable How would you feel if you were a potential client of a business, and as you walked into their building, rainwater from a leaky gutter dripped onto your head? This would not only be uncomfortable and disgusting, it would also appear unprofessional and likely affect your confidence in the business. When you invest in high-quality gutters, you won’t have to worry about alienating potential clients with a ramshackle building before they even set foot inside your business. A high-quality gutter will guarantee that rainfall is drained safely away from your building. It will also boost your building’s curb appeal, making it more attractive to prospective clients and patrons. Improves Indoor Air Quality Poorly constructed gutters will not hold up under strong rainfall and other extreme weather. Eventually, they will become clogged, and water could leak into your building’s siding, compromising its foundation and leading to a build-up of moisture in the interior. This moisture provides a rich breeding ground for mold, which can cause a range of health problems for you and your employees, including trouble breathing, skin irritation and wheezing. Don’t compromise the health of you and your employees. Choose high-quality gutters that will reduce the risk of water damage and mold growth. Enhances Your Curb Appeal If your gutters are in bad shape, they will create an eyesore. The weight from debris accumulating in your gutters can cause them to sag or even detach from your building. Clogs can cause water to overflow onto your siding, damaging your exterior and your landscaping. When it comes to growing your business, first impressions matter. A potential client who sees your deteriorating gutters and damaged exterior may question your ability to perform in other areas of your business. Don’t let your gutters be your downfall; invest in high-quality gutters and rest easy knowing that new clients will be greeted with a beautiful, clean building when they visit your business the first time.
