Rain Gutters: To Be or Not To Be

Ever wonder about the real purpose of rain gutters? They are actually one the most important investments you’ll ever make in your home. Yet most homeowners ignore this critical feature when it comes to home improvements…until there is an issue. Most people don’t realize that gutters are critical for keeping your home—and your family—healthy. By having gutters installed, you’re protecting your foundation from water damage and your loved ones from being exposed to deadly molds.

When rain isn’t diverted away from your structure, your home is in danger of the following:

Flooded basement/crawlspace

The water from your roofline will either leak through or accumulate and eventually flood the basement or crawlspace. Talk about extensive damage and expensive repairs!

Moisture that attracts termites/insects and mold

The last thing you want to do is provide a perfect petri dish for bacteria and mold. The type of mold caused by constant leaking water in the home can be dangerous for the people living in it. The moisture that can accumulate will also attract many different insects—such as termites. Wet homes are the perfect breeding ground for them, so it’s imperative to keep termites and insects away to avoid structural damage.

Soil/landscape erosion and foundation damage

Over time, the constant strain of accumulating water will wash away the soil and damage the landscaping near the perimeter of your home.

Settling/cracking of sidewalks/driveways

Soil saturated with water becomes very heavy. This causes the water running off your roof to pool around your foundation and put tremendous pressure on it. Over time, this puts pressure on basement walls to slump inward or crack.

Yikes! What else could go wrong? How about:

  • Rotting fascia boards
  • Mold/mildew growth inside/outside
  • Staining of exterior/siding/masonry
  • And worse!

Wow! That’s a lot of expensive problems. But maybe you already have rain gutters. Well, you’re ahead of the game. BUT…without gutter protection, your home is still susceptible to all of these problems.
