If you don't install gutters on your roof, you may be in for some serious trouble. Rainwater that falls from the roof without gutters can cause massive erosion, carrying dirt and debris with it every time it rains. This can lead to your carefully sloped landscape wearing out, allowing runoff to flow into your home instead of away from it. Erosion can also cause foundations to settle, and any small cracks or pores in the foundation can let water enter the basement, resulting in flooding.
Gutters are essential for guiding rainwater and stormwater away from the foundation of the house, and contractors install them in every new home they build for this very reason. Before deciding whether or not to install gutters right away, it's important to understand what they are and what they do. LeafGuard gutters are made of thicker aluminum foil than traditional gutters, and trained installers secure them with internal brackets for greater stability. Gutter systems require installation and maintenance, especially in locations that receive heavy rainfall per year.
Without gutters, you may be putting your home at risk of serious damage and costly repairs.
