This is a common question asked by most of our Durham, NC clients every day. But, there’s a simple answer to this—water. Protecting your home against water damage is one of the major reasons why we install gutters to homes in North Carolina. It doesn’t matter the current state of your home—water can cause the following issues:
- Backsplash – when the water falling from your roof hits the ground with too much force, the backsplash that follows can leave stains on your home. Also, this can cause mold and mildew to grow in the areas where the water has stained the building. Replacing or repairing these areas won’t solve the issue. Installing gutters is the only way to prevent backsplash related damages.
- Erosion and washouts – these are very common in areas that the water hits the ground. When left unattended, the erosions can become very deep, which can damage your landscaping and also foundation.
· Flooded basements – it doesn’t matter whether your basement is finished or unfinished—water falling from your roof will always find a way in. This mostly happens when the water pools on the ground, and it lacks a place to go, other than the basement. Water falling from the roof can be in thousands of liters—and now imagine this falling on your foundation. With gutters, the water will be directed away from the foundation and basement, thus preventing your foundation from flooding, and also protecting your basement.
we do install gutter guards to protect your gutters debris and snow blockage. Our gutter guard comprises of small holes and will give your gutters the ultimate protection from heavy snow loads and debris
