Are Gutters a Necessity for Your Home?

Are Gutters a Necessity for Your HomeIf you’re like many homeowners, you’ve probably wondered whether or not gutters are even necessary for your home. After all, most gutter systems are prone to clogging from leaves, pine needles, bird nests and other accumulating debris and can only handle a limited volume of water, which can cause gutters to pull away from your roof or tilt. What’s more, standing water that collects in your gutters because of a clog can attract mosquitos and other pests that you don’t want around.

The basic function of a gutter system is to provide a means for rainwater to be redirected away from the house. Gutters are usually affixed to the roof and catch rainwater as it washes down the side. This water is channeled through the downspouts, where it flows away from the home, helping to reduce the risk of erosion of your home’s foundation and damage to your basement from flooding. There are several cases when a gutter system may be vital for your home in order to protect the foundation. For example, if the ground is rich in red clay, when the surrounding landscape slopes upward, or when there is little to no roof overhang, especially in areas where rain is frequent.
