Gutters or eavestroughs are intended to catch rain water and melting snow to protect your home from water damage. Downspouts carry the water away from the home’s foundation. This is especially important during heavy downpours or during a January thaw when snow melts quickly.
Why your Home needs Gutters
Gutters or eavestroughs protect your home from water damage to roofs, siding, walkways, and landscaping. Water damage can cause the growth of dangerous mold and mildew. Downspouts will help prevent water seeping into or flooding basements.
Water damage from malfunctioning gutters or no gutters at all can be an costly expense. Protect your home with a new gutter installation or gutter repair.
How to know if your Gutters need to be Repaired or Replaced
Do your gutters or eavestroughs leak, do they overflow when it rains, does rain water run down your home’s siding and along the foundation. Other signs they need to repaired or replaced are cracked, rust, or sagging. Is the paint under the gutters peeling or is it moldy?
