Although the benefits from our gutters and downspouts are numerous, perhaps the two more notable are the extended life and durability they provide, as well as the ability to easily match and complement your homes decor and aesthetics. Failure to replace malfunctioning rain gutters can lead to various issues with your home that include a shifting foundation and water damage to your roof.
The primary purpose of gutters is to direct water away from your home. When your gutters fail, water will run down the side of your home and will collect in pockets around your home’s foundation. Water around your foundation can cause the ground to shift leading to settling and cracking in your slab.
Improperly functioning gutters can lead to water being forced underneath your shingles where it can cause significant damage to your roof. Additionally, snow can accumulate on your roof during the winter. Once this snow melts, it needs a place to go. A quality gutter system will transport the melted snow away from your roof. However, a roof that is absent functioning gutters is vulnerable to similar water damage.
