Why Gutters are Necessary for Your Home

Gutters are one of those things that go unnoticed and forgotten until there is a problem. There are many wonderful benefits to having gutters and keeping your gutters well maintained. Here at All American Roofing & Restoration, we know that having functional gutters on your home will save your home from serious damages and future problems. Below are our top reasons why we recommend gutters for every home.

  • Strong Foundation – The foundation of your home is the most important part of your home. If your foundation is faulty, then you will start to notice problems all throughout your home. One job of gutters is to move water away from your foundation. Moving water away from your home will prevent dangerous puddles near your home that can soften the dirt under and around your foundation. This soft dirt can cause your foundation to weaken, shift and crack.
  • Home Decay – Water is dangerous to many parts of your home. Exposure to water over time can cause your siding and shingles to shift and rot.
  • Landscaping – If you have landscaping around your home, then you most definitely need to consider installing gutters. Rain run-off will damage grass, flowers and shrubs if allowed to beat down on them over time. Lack of gutters can also cause erosion near the foundation of your home.

If you do not have gutters or need new gutters, then you should make gutters a priority before you start to have serious issues with your home, foundation and landscaping. Give us a call today to get a free quote and to discuss any questions you may have.
