How do rain gutters work?
Rain gutters are made to assist in protecting your home from the damages brought about by weather. When a home does not have rain gutters, rain races down the slope of your roof, splashes against your windows, siding, doors, foundation, and washes away soil around your foundation. Another damaging effect can be that due to a lack of rain gutters, water can get into your basement and crawl spaces causing significant damage.
A professionally installed rain gutter system collects all the water from your roof, channels it through seamless gutters and downspouts into the proper drainage and sewer systems. You’ll be astounded by how much water is collected by an average roof during a heavy rain. An inch of rain is equivalent to your roof shedding over 500 gallons of water! That is a tremendous amount of water drenching your siding, windows, doors, and the foundation of your home. It is almost a necessity to equip your house with a proper gutter and water drainage system.
