New Gutter Installation: How Gutters Save Homeowners Thousands
Gutters are a protective seal around your home, protecting it from elemental damage like, water, ice, debris and erosion. Most homeowners don’t give a second thought to gutters, until there are problems. But, gutters have been protecting homes since the 18th century.
The Fundamental Purpose of Gutter Installation
Gutters serve as a drainage control system. Their fundamental purpose is to divert water and debris away from your home’s foundation. Without gutters, when it rains or snows, water can form trenches around your home’s foundation that can seep into basements. This can lead to foundation leaks, basement leaks and driveway and walkway damage.
Why New Gutter Installation is Important to the Maintenance of Your Home
Many homeowners install gutters and forget them. But, like all parts of your home, they should be maintained and replaced when necessary. Following are a few reasons to get new gutters.
Rotting gutters, are not only unappealing aesthetically, they can damage the soffit and fascia board of your roof. This can lead to leaking, which causes a myriad of problems, eg, harmful black mold.
Soffit and fascia board damage can be hard to spot, but if not caught in time, in can mean that you may need to replace your entire roof.
Leaky gutters are one of the biggest causes of mold, foundational and structural problems, and leaky basements.
Clogged gutters produce standing water. And, where standing water is found, you will also find mosquitoes. A mosquito infection makes it impossible for you to fully enjoy your home, not to mention that they can be difficult and expensive to get rid of. Beyond simple annoyance and expense, mosquitoes pose a real health risk, especially in warmer climates (eg, West Nile disease).
New gutters prevent all of these problems, protecting the value of your home, and saving you thousands in the process.
How Often Should Gutters Be Cleaned
Gutters should be cleaned twice a year, in the fall and spring. They should be cleaned in the fall to prevent clogging by falling leaves and other debris, and in the spring after the melting of snow and/or ice.
