- The primary purpose of rain gutters is to move water away from your home’s foundation and basement.
- A debris-clogged gutter can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home.
- Gutters are an integral piece of your home's well being. They serve to control the flow of rainwater to protect your roof, walls, foundation and landscape.
The gutters funnel the water to the downspout on the ground where it's directed away from the foundation of the home. This keeps the ground immediately around the house from becoming waterlogged and potentially leaking into the basement or causing other damage to the structure as well as surrounding landscaping.
Gutter Maintenance— If you opt for aluminum or vinyl gutters, they can be either painted or purchased in complementary colors to minimize the visual impact. If you opt for wooden gutters, they need to be painted, cleaned and maintained both outside and inside to keep them in good shape. If your gutters have no covers, vents or other shielding such as the brushes mentioned above, you must clean them regularly to keep debris from building up and blocking water flow. In the winter, blocked gutters can freeze up and require additional maintenance or replacement.
