Gutters play an important role when it comes to protecting your home from damage. They capture rainwater coming off the roof and move it away from the foundation and landscaping, to avoid erosion problems. They also protect the edges of the roof from exposure to the elements. To protect your home, gutter installation and replacement should be a priority.
Installing gutters should be part of the building process for any new home. However, you may find yourself moving into a home that has never had gutters installed.
Gutter installation is one home improvement task best left to the professionals. To properly install gutters, the pro will take several factors into consideration:
how much water the downspouts need to handle
how to pitch the gutters to keep the water flowing
how to space the gutter hangers
where to place the downspouts
where to move the water to, after it is past the foundation and landscape.
Letting the pros do it for you offers other benefits you might not consider. Gutter companies offer a range of colors and styles. You can find the perfect gutter that blends into your home's architecture, which will only improve your home's value.
Gutters handle a lot of water during the rainy season. They can work well for decades, but in time, will start to clog. In time, they will fail, leaving your home's foundation and landscaping vulnerable to erosion.
The good news is that gutter replacement is not difficult. The installers will assess the entire system and determine if the downspouts need to be replaced at the same time. They will provide a firm estimate on the cost so you can make an informed decision.
Replacing your gutters gives you the opportunity to improve your home's value and looks. Replacement gutters are seamless and come in a variety of colors and styles. You can customize your choice based on your home's architecture and your budget. Once installed, the replacement gutters will keep moving the water off your roof and away from your foundation for years to come.
