Despite the best efforts of our Pro Exteriors team, not all homes in CT have gutters. If you recently installed gutters on your home, you know the difference between having gutters and not having them is like night and day. Issues caused by poor drainage are no longer an issue and you can save time and money on maintenance and upkeep for your home.
If you’re a homeowner who doesn’t have gutters in CT, here are some reasons why you should install them.
Protect your home’s foundation.
The primary function of gutters is to channel rainwater away from your home’s foundation. Water damage to your foundation can cause serious structural damage as well as other issues like rot and mold growth.
Prevent water damage.
Your foundation isn’t the only part of your home that can suffer water damage. Water splashing up onto your siding, windows, and doors can lead to damage to your home’s exterior. Over time, that damage won’t be limited to your exterior. Water damage outside eventually leads to leaks and indoor water damage as well.
Maintain your landscaping.
You spend a lot of time making your gardens and landscaping look just the way you like them. Without gutters to direct water away from your landscaping, flooding and oversaturation can ruin your hard work.
Avoid ice dams.
There are many factors that can cause ice dams, but not having gutters is a major one. If there is nothing to keep water flowing away from your roof edge, it can refreeze in the cold, causing ice dams to form. Ice dams, in turn, can cause damage to your roof, including leaks and water damage.
Increase your home’s value.
Protecting your home from water damage and poor drainage issues increases the value of your property. Even if you do not plan to sell your home any time soon, it’s still important to keep your property well-maintained. Installing gutters can also increase curb appeal. These days, we can make gutters in many colors and styles so that they complement your home rather than becoming an eyesore.
