Direct Water Away From Your Home

Properly installed gutters and downspouts direct water away from your home. When they’re working correctly, they can help prevent water damage, keep basements from flooding, and more.

Directing water away from your home is the most important function a gutter system serves. Proper installation is only half the battle; it's also important for your gutters and downspouts to be clean and clear of debris’. 

Clogs or poor installation can cause water to pool at the bottom of the downspout and keep it close to your home. Over time, this can erode your soil, flood your basement, and cause cracks to start forming in your home’s foundation.

Not replacing your gutters when needed or neglecting to keep them clear are some ways you could be encouraging mold growth in your home in addition to causing damage to your home. If you need new gutters or are tired of cleaning out your current ones, contact a professional to keep your home protected from extensive and expensive water damage
