Buying a New Home? Don’t Forget to Check the Gutters

By January 12, 2015No Comments

Planning to purchase a new home this year? If so, it’s smart to thoroughly check the important systems of the house you want to make an offer on. In addition to the professional inspection that will be done as part of the purchase, your own visual inspection is one of the most important steps you can take to make sure the property is going to be a sound investment and, of course, a safe place to live.

Whether you’re planning to purchase new construction or an existing home, you can do a thorough inspection before signing on the dotted line. It’s especially important to know if gutters are properly installed and in good condition. The gutter acts as a funnel to redirect rainwater from the roof to the drains. Without it, water collects at the perimeter of the house, causing soil erosion and eventual damage to the landscape around the house. Rainwater may run down the sides of the house. This leads to siding deterioration, wood rot, roof leaks and other problems. Water can also seep into the home, allowing water into the basement and potential structural damage.
