The Importance of roof gutters

Roof gutters are placed on the roof to reroute rain that falls on the roof of a house or building through a downpipe and out to the drainage system and away from the home. Therefore, it keeps the ground around the house from becoming waterlogged thereby preventing severe erosion to the structure, as well as surrounding structures. If the house gutters are not installed, rain will run down the roof, creating a waterfall effect. It prevents from the following issues.

 

The foundation is safe from damage due to leaking as a basement leak can lead to flooding which ultimately endangers the structure of the house. It also protects from mosquito breeding, which can happen in a puddle of water, thereby safeguarding the family health.

 

Water that is not diverted properly off the roof may run down behind the siding of the house. Therefore, it may cause permanent damage, leading to warping in the case of vinyl siding and rotting in the case of wood siding. Generally,water damage doesn’t look good to potential buyers of the house while trying to sell it and can decrease the value of the home.

 

Ifthe gutters are not available to take the rain water away from the home, rain water will fall straight down into the soil around the home, as well as the gardens and shrubs. Therefore, with such constant onslaught of cascading water, it will quickly experience soil erosion that can result in holes and ruts.
