Why Gutters Are So Important

Home > Roofing Contractor Blog > Why Gutters Are So Important

We believe that no home should go without rain gutters. Gutters have many fantastic benefits, including helping to protect your home. Gutters may not seem like a very important part of a home, but they are. The reasons rain gutters are so important are:

  • Decay Prevention – Even when your roof is installed by professionals, it still can have gaps that water could potentially get into. Over time, this water can cause serious damage like roof rot. The best way to help prevent decay of your roof is to install gutters. Gutters help to draw water away from your roof and help to protect your roof from decay.

Why Gutters Are So Important

  • Fewer Insects – Insects love to congregate and live in places with a wet environment. If your home does not have gutters, then it is likely that your moist roof is attracting more unwanted pests and insects.
  • Landscaping – Water running off of your roof unhindered can cause great damage to the landscaping around your home. The falling water can damage grass, shrubs, and flowers.
  • Cleaner Home – Without gutters, your home will probably accumulate dirt from splashing mud around the perimeter of your home, so it will look less appealing and can even be more prone to damage caused by accumulation of fungi or mold.
