Why Gutters are Essential for Every Home
The unfortunate fact is that many homes in the Kansas City area are not equipped with efficient rain gutters – if any at all.
Many homeowners aren’t even aware that they need them, or what their actual purpose is. The fact is there are several reasons to have gutters installed on your home, not the least of which is to prevent damage to your home. If you weren’t aware of it, water causes more damage to homes than anything else.
Here are just a few of the things you should consider if you are contemplating having gutters installed on your Kansas City area home:
Why get drowned every time you leave your home in a downpour? When rain pours off the roof, you get soaked trying to get out the door. This can be prevented! While this isn’t really one of the most important reasons to have gutters installed, it’s still something to think about.
Water can cause considerable damage to your home. There are various ways that rainwater can damage your home. For one, rain can curl under the eaves of the roof and down siding, causing mold and damage to paint. Rain that pools near your foundation can seep into the basement if it isn’t properly sealed. Additionally, pooling around the foundation can cause the foundation of your home to settle and crack. If you have a deck on your home, the wood is prone to warping and will rot much sooner because of the direct downpour of water.
Hard rain can literally destroy your landscaping efforts. If you have flower beds or other landscaping close to your home, you can almost see your flowers and plants floating away in a hard rain! Not only will the water eventually make a trench under the eaves around the perimeter of your home, it can destroy beautiful (not to mention) landscaping.
Unless you live in an area where it never rains, having rain gutters installed on your home is extremely important. Considering the potential damage to your home, isn’t it worth protecting your most costly investment?
