How Gutters Protect Your Home’s Value
Some people think the only thing gutters are for is to keep the roof run-off from dripping on your head as you come and go during a rainstorm. What those gutters really do is collect and move the water away from your home, preventing it from dumping down right along your foundation. When water accumulates around the foundation of your house, you can bet it will find its way into your basement, crawl space, or all around your concrete slab.
This water can cause a cascade of serious problems that are a real hassle to address. The water can cause mildew, mold (some molds are highly toxic to people and present a serious health risk), rot, and even structural damage over time. When these kinds of problems occur, they can be extremely expensive to repair. Preventing these kinds of serious issues with gutters should be a no-brainer for most homeowners.
The Anatomy of Failing Gutters: Signs and Symptoms
Gutters should be level (with a gentle slope for the water to drain in the right direction) and flush against the house to direct water to and through downspouts. Over time, however, gutters can wear out and begin to fail. They may be separating from the home, in which case the sagging and misalignment may mean not all the roof run-off is being captured. Metal gutters will eventually rust through, causing leakage. Many gutters have lots of joints where pieces come together, and those joints can become areas where leaks occur.
If your home has gutters made from plastic, those are susceptible to cracking for all kinds of reasons, leading to leaks. If your home’s gutters are failing, it’s something you want to address right away before more serious problems crop up. If your gutters are generally in good shape, we’ll be happy to repair and address specific issues when possible. If it’s time for new gutters, we can help with that as well.
