The Benefits of a Home Water Management System (Gutters).
Rainwater seems harmless enough, but have you really thought about what would happen if you didn’t have an efficient home water management system? A good gutter system can protect garage and entry doors from moisture, prevent water staining on brick and stone, preserve landscaping and turf by stabilizing the soil (preventing erosion), and prevent flooding under your house. It also protects other crucial aspects of your home such as your roof, windows and siding, which can let water seep in if it’s not directed away from your home. A properly installed gutter system will include gutters on every sloped edge of the roof and will have enough downspouts to handle the water runoff.
It’s important to keep you gutters clean and well-maintained, this is where gutter protection can come in quite handy. Unprotected gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year to prevent a buildup of debris. This can be a daunting task if your home has multiple levels, or a very steep roof. Luckily, there are many gutter protection systems that can make this job obsolete. Gutter protection consists of a covering that keeps debris out, while allowing the water into the gutter system.
A properly draining gutter system will keep you home safe from water damage.
