Did you know the importance of gutters? If a home doesn’t have gutters, rainwater will fall from the roof directly onto the ground around the perimeter of the home. This can lead to several potential problems:
1. Erosion which can lead to uneven settling of the foundation and other structural damage.
2. Water damage to inside of home.
3. Damage to exterior: rainwater falling directly onto exterior of the home can cause damage to siding, brick or other materials.
4. Insect infestations: standing water around the foundation can attract insects.
