The Importance of Gutters

As a maintenance company working here in the North Georgia Mountains I cannot believe how many homes we encounter that do not have gutters.  Gutters are one of those things that people do not really think they need and they do not want to worry about cleaning them.  The amount of damage that the lack of gutters or clogged gutters can cause is staggering.  Gutters keep water away from your foundation which results is a dryer home.  Gutters also prevent erosion around your home including under patios, driveways and decking.  We have seen concrete footer which support homes undermined by rain water which compromised the integrity of the house structure.  The money required to install and clean gutters is miniscule to the money required to repair the damage that the lack of gutters or clogged gutters can cause.

Don’t be caught off guard by damage that can easily be prevented from the lack of gutters!
