Whether you have gutters, want gutters, or are just curious about gutters, there’s something you should know: Gutters are an essential feature of any home or business because they protect your investment.
Wondering how they work?
To start, gutters control the flow of water away from your building’s foundation. But they also do much more than that!
In addition to directing water away from your home or business, gutters extend your roof’s lifespan, protect your landscaping, preserve your paint job, and prevent damage.
When a rain gutter installation is done correctly, rainwater should flow down the roof, into the gutter, through the downspout, and away from your home or business’s foundation and walls.
Many people think that they don’t really need gutters. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth — especially for anyone who lives in Florida! On average, we get about 60 inches of rain a year, and rainwater is a natural element that can easily destroy your home or business if it’s not protected by rain gutters.
If you already have gutters installed on your home or business, then you’re ahead of the game. To keep them working well for you all year long, make sure you:
- Keep tree limbs from hanging over your roof
- Regularly clean debris off your roof and out of your gutters
- Call in a professional to make any necessary repairs to your gutters
- Ensure all downspouts are in place and divert water into your drain system
