You may have never thought about gutters on your home before, but those pieces of aluminum have an important job to do. They take the rainwater that falls from your roof and leads it to the downspouts and away from your home. Rainwater could do a lot of damage to your home including rotting the wood on your roof, soffit/fascia and even cause flooding around your home and eventually inside your home if you don't do something to keep it away from your home. This is why having gutters on your home are so important.
Read on for reasons why you should invest in seamless gutters for your home.
1. To Guide Water
Gutters work as a guide for rainwater and move it along so it doesn't puddle around the perimeter of your home. When it does do this, it can cause flooding in your basement or crawl space eventually. Even if your home is graded properly, the water falling directly next to your home is going to create a problem over time. If you have issues with water in your crawl space or your basement, it may be due to not having gutters on your home or due to your gutters failing their job. You may need to invest in new gutters if you're having this issue.
2. To Prevent Damage
Water can do a lot of damage if given enough time. Water can seep into any tiny opening and eventually make that opening much worse. If you don't have gutters, water may be seeping into your soffit/fascia and will find it's way into your home and cause further damage that can be very costly to repair. Mold and mildew can quickly grow in areas that have been damaged with water, which can open up an entirely new problem for you.
Not only can this be costly, but it could be costing you your health as well. Mold and mildew growth in your home can create breathing problems, or it can disturb breathing issues that may already be present. Other damage that can be caused by rainwater includes damage to your foundation or your sidewalk/porch. Water that pools and puddles in or around these areas can cause damage to the concrete or asphalt and cause it to crack with time.

I can honestly say that I was incredibly pleased with our construction team, and I couldn't have done it without them.
