Better Safe Than Sorry: How Gutters Help Mitigate Hurricane Damage

Since hurricane season has officially begun, we want to remind our Florida residents about the importance of having high-quality rain gutters installed by professionals to ensure your home stays protected during a storm. 

Seal Your House from Flooding  

Rain can collect up to anywhere between 6-12 inches, and the last thing you should have to worry about is water collecting around your house. During hurricanes, it’s common for blowing rain to cause flooding. This rain whips against houses and can easily make its way into homes that are not properly sealed. This is why it’s so important to hire a professional to install your rain gutters—a company that understands the challenges that are presented with living in a hurricane-prone area. 

Prevent Soil Erosion Around Your Home

Continuous downpour can cause a slew of issues in and around your home’s foundation, including the sturdiness and solidity of the ground underneath it. Gutters help effectively protect your home’s foundation by constantly moving water away from it. Gutter guards keep the gutters intact so they can continue to funnel rainfall away without bursting or rupturing.  

Mitigate the Possibility of Mold and Mildew Growth

Water that enters your home can cause a tremendous amount of mold. The best way to prevent this problem from occurring is by mitigating the opportunity for mold and mildew to grow by installing gutters. When your home is unprotected without gutters, water can slip through the cracks and leak through your windows and foundation. To avoid this damage, install gutters to safeguard your house against leaks that lead to mold and mildew growth.
