Can Your Home Survive without a Healthy Gutter System?

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015 by Scott Siegal

Rain, is a natural phenomenon that can cause harm to homes and structures. Since it’s a natural occurrence, there’s nothing much we can do except to prepare and equip our homes and property. While many people don’t see the significance of gutters, they are a part of your home that can greatly help in protecting your household.

Being one of the least-noticed components, gutters funnel water off your roof and help keep your structure dry. So as you spend time and money on your home maintenance this year, don’t forget to include your gutters in Washington DC.

Here are a couple of reasons:

  •   Gutters help stop mold and mildew formation.
  •   Gutters shield your structure from stains and other serious damage to your soffits, fascia, and other parts made of wood.
  •   Gutters protect your home from the fading of paint, as well as the rotting and rusting of your exterior.
  •   Gutters help keep your house visually appealing by preventing cracks and other damage from occurring.
  •   Gutters prevent your home and basement from flooding.
  •   Gutters help your home’s landscape avoid soil erosion.
  •   Gutters do a good job in keeping your exterior doors and overhead garage doors dry.

The significance of your gutters can’t be stressed enough. Your home may survive without it, but only barely, as issues caused by water can get quite messy and costly to repair. And once water damage takes place, your options become limited—which usually leads to replacement. As a homeowner, you can do something to prevent any damage from happening and  progressing. Ask your local experts for thorough gutter inspection and cleaning services, such as what we offer here at Maggio Roofing.
