Four Reasons Why Your Home Needs Gutters
Keep Your Home Safe from Water Damage
Many homeowners are unaware of the important role that gutters have with regards to home protection. Granted, gutters aren’t likely to protect your home from intruders, they do help protect its curb appeal and structural integrity. In fact, there are four primary things that your gutters are specifically designed to fight against and if your home is unequipped then you will suffer expensive damages. At Precision Home Products, we want to make sure that you don’t fall victim to such grievous damages, which is why we carry our high-quality gutter system. However, one must know what gutters protect against in order to fully understand their importance.
Damages Gutters Prevent for Your Home
- Basement Flooding: The lack of a gutter system or a clogged gutter system can lead to pooling water at the base of your home. From here the water will find its way into your basement by seeping through cracked walls, bad window seals, or any other opening. This type of damage is quite serious and can lead to the growth of mold and mildew and cause other types of severe water damage that can be very costly to repair.
- Foundation Damage: Pooling water at your home’s base is one of the leading causes of foundation damage. The water saturates the soil to a point of expansion, which puts large amounts of stress on the foundation walls that causes cracks. The soil will eventually dry and contract, which destabilizes your home.
- Erode Landscaping: Constant overflow from water running off of your roof every time it rains will erode your landscaping. This results in unsightly inconsistencies in your lawn and may even lead to cracks or dislodging for your patio or pavers.
- Stained Siding: The lack of gutters allows for runoff rainwater to flow directly onto your landscaping. The inevitable splash that occurs will affect your siding since it will splash back against your home. Over time this can leave your siding stained and may even bring about reduce its lifespan.
