While gutters are often out of sight, out of mind, they are very important to the overall health of your home. Exposure to heavy rain can drastically affect the stability and longevity of your siding, doors, windows, and foundation. Gutters help to collect the water falling from your roof, diverting it away from the exterior of the building, and routing it to the ground.
Why Gutters are Important
When water is left unchecked, it can pool around the foundation of your home and seep into your siding, window systems, door seams, and more. This can lead to rot, deterioration of materials, and affect the structural integrity of your home. Pooling water can also lead to flooding and water damage to the exterior and interior of your home. Unfortunately, gutters are often overlooked by homeowners, but regular maintenance and updates are necessary to prevent costly repairs.
Checking for Gutter Damage
It’s important to keep a close eye on your gutters and contact a trusted contractor if you notice any damage or issues with water flow. If you notice water pooling at the downspout, it’s possible the pitch is off. If water is cascading down the side of your gutters rather than through them to the downspout, it’s possible the angle is incorrect, they are clogged, or they are damaged. Damage and deterioration like rust can cause breaks along the gutter line which can damage fascia, sofits, and siding. Check for water streaks along your siding, window frames, or doors and evaluate the water flow during a rain storm to help determine if you need to meet with a contractor for an inspection.
