In order to facilitate the proper functioning of a roof and drainage system, proper gutter installation services are required. This system channels rainwater and melted snow from the roof of a house into the drainage system. At CR Gutters, Inc., we provide a range of gutter services, including repair and installation to help ensure your home is properly protected.
There are a number of benefits resulting from the installation of an effective gutter system. These include:
Preventing Wood Decay
The absence of a gutter means that water flow from the roof will eventually cause wood on the fascia, soffit, and around windows and door frames to rot, leading to unnecessary additional expensive repairs.
Keeping Other Parts of the House Dry
Gutter installation services stop rainwater from gathering on the roof. They also prevent heavy rains from splashing all around the house, including on your porch. Gutters keep the area immediately around your home dry.
Keeping the Basement Dry
Rainwater that is not channeled properly will eventually flow into your basement, causing destruction of walls and floors, and leading to the buildup of mold. Properly functioning gutters prevent this problem.
Preventing Soil Erosion
Gutters channel rainwater into the underground drainage system and prevent the water from simply accumulating around the home and eroding the soil. Accumulating rainwater can damage the grass and plants around your home. Gutters ensure these issues do not occur.
Protecting the Home’s Foundation
Gutters drain the water into the drainage system instead of allowing it to accumulate and negatively affect the home’s foundation. If water seeps into the foundation it can create foundation problems, which is a much larger and more expensive issue than gutter replacement.
Preventing Formation of Ice Dams
Gutter installation services allow melted snow to be gathered away from the roof, preventing the formation of ice dams that can add weight to the roof and lead to structural damage.
Preventing Potential Ground Hazards
Without a properly installed gutter, rainwater can create slippery situations on the ground and also attract insects and tests.
