Gutters and downspouts play a vital role in keeping your property beautiful and structurally sound. There are a number of problems which can be avoided by having gutters on your house that are designed and installed properly. The amount of rain collected by your roof is greater than you probably realize. 1″-inch of rain landing on a 1,000 sqft roof is approximately 600 gallons of water. Without gutters water can damage your home’s foundation, create rot damage to your homes roof and fascia, and cause mold and mildew. Controlling the water runoff is also very important for your landscaping and yard health.
Water running off your roof without gutters can cause damage to your foundation and walls. The water runoff will erode the dirt and landscaping. Moisture will saturate the soil around your home causing expansion and contraction, which is the number one contributing factor to slab foundation failure. Over time the foundation can be compromised, leading to cracks in the foundation and block walls.
Keeping your plants, flowers, and landscaping looking good is hard enough without the unpredictable rain-showers in Florida. Landscaping located under the edge of a roof will suffer from the water runoff even during light rainfall. Additionally, this could encourage harmful fungus to develop as well as attract ants, roaches and termites. A properly designed and installed gutter system keeps the soil surrounding your home at a consistent moisture level by directing roof runoff safely away from the house.
The fascia around your home plays a very important role in protecting the entire roof and the interior of the house from weather damage by blocking its entrance to the home. The fascia is made of wood and is prone to rotting. This happens due to excessive moisture exposure from rain, snow and ice dams. Our properly installed seamless gutters help to prevent this unwanted wood deterioration, keeping your home looking good and properly protected.
Rainwater cascading off a roof will impact the ground with enough force to cause a splash back. This splash back will contain dirt, grass and minerals that end up on the exterior of your home. Over a short period of time, a stain appears on the home’s siding that can be difficult to remove or hide. Our seamless gutters will make sure that your home’s first impression to visitors will be a positive one that reflects the quality and care you’ve put into it.
