Investing in New Gutters and Downspouts

Gutters and downspouts are critical for protecting the roof and exterior of your property. They also add resale value to your home or building:

Stop Water Damage

Collecting and redirecting rainwater, gutters, and downspouts prevent water from seeping into the roof, walls, and foundation, thus minimizing the risk of costly water damage.

Clear Damaging Standing Water

Water accumulation on the roof can lead to rot, mold growth, and deterioration of building materials. Gutters and downspouts help protect against these issues, preserving the structural integrity of your property.

Protect Your Landscaping

Rainwater freely cascades off the roof without gutters, causing soil erosion and damaging your landscaping. Properly functioning gutters and downspouts direct water away from plants and flower beds.

Prevent Flooding

Leaky and clogged gutters cause water to overflow near the foundation. Well-maintained gutters and downspouts keep water away from the foundation, minimizing the chances of water seeping into your property.

Don’t Overlook Your Gutters and Downspouts

When protecting your property from water damage, gutters and downspouts play a vital role. Here’s how your roof, gutters and downspouts work together.

What are Gutters?

Gutters collect rainwater as it flows off the roof and direct it away from the home. They are narrow channels typically made of metal, vinyl, or other durable materials attached along the roofline’s edges.

Gutters come in various shapes, including K-style and half-round, and are available in different sizes to accommodate different kinds of rainfall. When correctly installed, a slight slope ensures the water flows towards the downspouts.

How Do Downspouts Work?

Downspouts, also known as leaders or drain pipes, are vertical pipes attached to a building’s corners or sides. They connect to the gutters, allowing the collected rainwater to be redirected away from the foundation. The downspouts channel the water downwards, safely guiding it towards the ground. To prevent water pooling near the foundation, downspout extensions can be added, directing water further away from your home or into a designated drainage system.

What To Know About Gutters and Downspouts

How often do gutters and downspouts be cleaned and maintained?

Does your team install gutter guards, and are they worth it?

Yes, we install gutter guards! They are an effective way to prevent leaves and debris from clogging your gutters and minimize maintenance. Gutter guards can be a worthwhile investment, especially in areas with heavy foliage.
