Why You Need Rain Gutters
Perhaps you are a new homeowner or don’t understand the full purpose of rain gutters on a home. Rain gutters serve several purposes and we’ll tell you all about them here!
1. Rain gutters protect and preserve your home
Rain gutters that are properly installed and maintained will reduce damages to your home by directing water away from the foundation of your home. This helps prevent damage such as mold, dry rot, mildew, oxidation, and insect infestation. Rain gutters also help stop water from dripping and damaging your walkways and driveways causing erosion. Rain gutters can also direct water away from your decking and landscaping.
2. Rain gutters add value to your home
Rain gutters always add value to a home not only by protecting the home but also gutters add a beautiful accent between the roof and exterior wall. Many people use gutters to enhance the overall look of the home, increasing the value of your investment.
3. Rain gutters make your home safer
By having rain gutters on your home, you prevent water from dripping around your walkways and doorways. This helps eliminate accidental slips and falls that could occur otherwise. It also helps prevent water dripping on you or your visitors as you enter or leave the home.
