Rain Gutters Protect Your Foundation From Water Damage

Wondering how gutters safeguard the structural integrity of your home?

Gutters are engineered to collect water from your roof and dispose of it so that leaks don’t damage your attic and other upper-level rooms. The gutter pipes channel water through a downspout to ground level and usually direct the stream toward a nearby drain.

Without gutters, rainwater could damage your shingles and saturate the ground where your foundation is laid, compromising the sturdiness of your home. Water could quickly seep into cracks and crevices in your foundation and create costly damages that would take lots of time and energy to fix.

Be Prepared For Foundation Repair If You Don’t Have Gutters

Interested in learning more about the consequences of not installing gutters? Without a way to divert rainwater away from your foundation, your property would be more vulnerable to:

  • Bug infestations through fissures and fractures in your home
  • Roof and structural damage
  • Pest invasions, such as mice, rats and squirrels
  • Erosion and lawn damage as your soil is constantly shifted
  • Standing water against your home

Each of these issues can leave lasting effects on your home and yard if left unchecked. If you suspect that a slab leak has occurred due to cracks in your foundation, don’t hesitate to connect with our team as soon as possible.
