The Protection That Gutters Provide?
Your roof protects your home from moisture. It does this by redirecting it off the roof and towards the ground. Gutters are responsible for catching this water and keeping it from reaching the ground. Instead of going directly to the exterior walls or the ground surrounding your home, your gutters redirect it away from your home. If you did not have gutters, the moisture would make its way toward your home’s foundation and cause deterioration. Eventually, foundation cracks and leaks would form. This may even compromise your foundation over time.
Thankfully, gutters prevent this from happening. There are several types of gutters which include K-style, half-round, and box gutters. Traditional gutters are sections of gutter that are attached together which forms seams. It is common for these seams to catch debris, causing clogs. These clogs prevent water from flowing to your downspout and lead to overflows. The overflows then cause water to spill over and toward your foundation, damaging it. Seamless gutters, just as their name applies, do not have seams. This reduces clogs and allows for the continuous flow of water to your downspout.
