What Gutter Installation Can Do for Your Home

You may have never given it much thought, but gutters play an important role in protecting your home. They do a lot more than just collect and direct water when it rains. They also protect all areas of your home from water damage. At Guarded Gutters, we know the importance of having well-maintained gutters on your home. With regular maintenance, your gutters can last up to 20 years. If your gutters are old or damaged, or your house doesn’t have gutters at all, now is the time to think about gutter installation.

These are just some of the ways gutter installation can protect your home.


Prevent Water Damage

The primary purpose of your gutters is to keep water away from your house and to drain it away from your property. If your house has damaged gutters or no gutters at all, rainwater can collect and damage your doors, windows, and siding. Water damage around your doors and windows can lead to leaks, which can then cause water damage inside your home. Wood siding damaged by water will start to rot and lead to all kinds of maintenance problems down the road.


Protect Your Foundation

In nature, rain and water cause erosion, which is the wearing away of land and stone. While that might be okay in nature, it’s not okay around the foundation of your house. Gutters collect and drain rainwater safely away from your home and, most importantly, your foundation. If water erodes the land around the foundation, or the foundation itself, that can lead to water damage, leaks, and even structural damage. By spending some money now on gutter installation, you will save a lot of money in the future by preventing damage to your foundation.


Keep Your Walkways Dry

You might not think to connect the two, but gutters can also keep your steps and walkways dry. Or drier, anyway. Gutters can’t keep rain from falling on your front steps, but they can keep water from pooling there. Standing water on your walkways or steps can be slippery and things like algae can start to grow there. In the summer, standing water also creates a breeding ground for mosquitos.
