Gutters are one of the most-overlooked aspects of a home’s exterior. Your gutters play a critical part in the protection of your home’s foundation and roofing system — and therefore, your home’s interior. The gutters channel water flowing off the roof and deliver it to downspouts, which in turn carry the water well away from the foundation. When gutters are clogged, the water can overflow and back up underneath the shingles or drain immediately beside the foundation. Damaged, sagging or missing gutters can cause the same problems.
Proper gutter installation is necessary, are is one of the most-overlooked aspects of a home’s exterior.
Having quality gutter installation is the best solution. There are many different types of guttering systems on the market, such as seamless styles that are attractive as well as durable and covered gutters that keep leaves and debris out while allowing water to flow freely. Vinyl gutters are available in a wide range of colors, eliminating the need for paint. New contemporary styles add architectural interest to any home. In other words, gutters do not need to be boring or plain — they can become an important exterior design element while still providing the desired functionality.
If your gutters are bending or sagging, the joints are coming apart, your steel gutters are rusted or the gutters have pulled away from the overhang, you should consider having them repaired or replaced. Gutters that overflow or that allow water to flow from behind the gutter can be a sign of a damaged gutter as well as one that has become clogged, so if you notice these signs and cleaning the gutter does not help, you need to have them replaced or repaired.
