Protect Your Investment with a New Gutter System from RoofPro
Gutters are usually taken for granted–until it rains! If they are not taken care of, they can cause extensive damage to both the outside and inside of your home.
Not only do gutters help direct water away from the foundation (if installed correctly), they are also important for routing water away from walkways where ice can build up and cause damage or create injury risk. Many older homes have poorly designed water drainage systems. RoofPro Exteriors can consult with you on your water problems.
It is hard to imagine the extensive damage that can be caused by something as delicate as a leaf. Leaves can clog gutters and downspouts resulting in severe problems and expensive home repairs. At RoofPro Exteriors, we offer the most advanced systems for gutter protection.
Common Gutter Problems
If your gutters are damaged, sagging, missing parts or improperly installed, it is unfortunate but likely that exterior damage to your home is sure to follow. A gutter that is missing, or that drains too close to the house will saturate the ground and your basement or crawl space. This wet saturated ground can produce a variety of problems:
Creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
Erosion of your basement walls and/or foundation.
Leaks and cracks in your foundation can occur and will quickly worsen in the winter months when the freezing and thawing occurs.
Driveways and walkways will sink and rise, interior and exterior walls and floors can warp, bow or become wet, molded or stained. Water penetration into your home can create major headaches. Act first to prevent issues with your greatest investment--your home.
