The Benefit of Rain Gutters

The Benefit of Rain Gutters

This fall, the Greater Boston area has seen its fair share of rainy days. Rainy days not only put a damper on plans, but can can put a damper on your home.

Especially during periods of significant precipitation, rain can cause damage to several parts of a house, most notably, the roof.

If rain is left on top of a roof for a prolonged period of time, it can cause damage and leaking inside the home.

Such is why it is critical to make sure your home has gutters that are installed and functioning properly.

Simply put, gutters help funnel water off of your roof and away from your home. By funneling the water away from the home, gutters prevent water from entering through the roof, doors, or windows.

Gutters also help keep the exterior of your home clean. Without gutters, water falling off of the roof can collect dirt, which can stick to the exterior. Gutters funnel any dirt and debris collected by water away from the house.

Additionally, gutters keep your roof from rotting or eroding. Standing water can cause major damage to a roof, which can cost homeowners money in the long-run.

Lastly, gutters help keep basements dry and foundations stable.

Without gutters, water falling off a roof settles near the bottom of a house, and finds its way into the basement. Water accumulating at the bottom of a house can also be detrimental to the house’s foundation.

Installing new gutters can save homeowners time, money, and frustration. Those interested in installing new gutters, or cleaning their current ones, should contact us today!
