Gutters & Downspouts Services

Most home own­ers don’t spend a lot of time think­ing about their gut­ters, but under­stand­ing their impor­tance may pre­vent costly home repair bills in the future.

 

Gut­ters fun­nel water off of the roof and away from the build­ing, which pro­tects your sid­ing, win­dows, doors and foun­da­tion from water dam­age. While that sounds impor­tant, many build­ing own­ers don’t real­ize how much dam­age can occur when their gut­ters are clogged, leak­ing, or bro­ken. When gut­ters aren’t func­tion­ing prop­erly, rain­wa­ter runs off the roof of the build­ing and col­lects on the ground near the foun­da­tion. Heavy rains can result in stand­ing pools of water, which can cause a mul­ti­tude of problems.

Gut­ters pro­tect your build­ing from:

Build­ing and base­ment flooding

Ice Dams – Clogged gut­ters pre­vent water from drain­ing – mean­ing the water stays in the gut­ter. When win­ter rolls around, this water freezes. When the water freezes, it nat­u­rally expands – which can pull the gut­ters off the build­ing, crack the building’s fas­cia, and dam­age the integrity of the roof as well.

Cracked/damaged foun­da­tion

Infes­ta­tions — Mos­qui­toes and other insects breed in stand­ing water

Mold — over­flow­ing gut­ters cre­ate an envi­ron­ment for mold to flour­ish in crawl­spaces and basements

Ero­sion: Top­soil pro­tects the foun­da­tion of your home. If water is not cor­rectly diverted away from your home the top­soil will erode and leave your foun­da­tion vulnerable.

Stain­ing to the exte­rior of your building’s fas­cia, sof­fit, wood fram­ing and out­side walls as well as decks, patios, dri­ve­ways and walkways

Paint dam­age

Rotting/Rusting of exte­rior build­ing products

Dam­age to land­scap­ing — Fungi can dam­age or kill your flow­ers and trees

If the list sounds some­what dra­matic, remem­ber that you don’t have to live in an area that expe­ri­ences extreme weather con­di­tions to suf­fer the effects of clogged or dam­aged gut­ters. Con­sider this star­tling fact: experts esti­mate that one inch of rain on an aver­age sized house roof cre­ates about 500 gal­lons of rain­wa­ter runoff. That’s a lot of water!
