Why Gutters are an Essential Investment
Your home is your largest investment. Protect it against its biggest threat: water!
Painted surfaces, like the exterior of your home, will wear significantly faster when wet, causing peeling, chipping and potential rotting sooner than normal.
Water by your foundation will eat away at the lime in cement and eventually crack the cement. This leads to flooded basements.
Water by a cement pad will undermine the pad and cause frost heaves that will crack the pad.
Water will undermine any stone walls, walkways or stonework.
Water overflowing gutters will dirty the walls, rot any exposed wood and lead to replacing door jambs, window sills, wood siding, decking, etc.
Splashing water can ruin nearby plantings and landscaping around a house.
