Why Rain Gutters Are Important

As you look at ways to invest in your home you may have considered adding rain gutters at one point but thought-why? Countless houses don’t have them and even newly built ones don’t always have them. The answer is simple-to protect one of your largest tangible assets!


What rain gutters do:

Take large amounts of water from your roof and transport it to the best possible drainage area

Protect your lawn, landscaping, tar, and concrete by preventing divots and groves caused by water coming off of your roof

Prevent egress window wells from filling with water

Reduce/eliminate foundation issues caused by water backtracking towards the house after coming off of the roof

Reduce/eliminate the chance of basement flooding as well as how frequently sump pumps have to run


Why they are important:

Rain gutters are important because your home depends on its foundation for its integrity and having improper drainage from your roof is one of the fastest ways to undermine your foundation. Seamless Rain Gutters are one of the best and least expensive investments you can make to protect your homes foundation.
