Some of you may be wondering if gutters are absolutely necessary to make your house look nice. Gutters do sometimes add to a look of completion on your home. Since gutters are so common, a house may look unfinished without them.
The interesting thing about gutters is that when done right, gutters typically blend in to the home and are hardly seen. Our seamless gutters make sure that there are no joints to distract the eye and give them away. We can also match any color to blend in as best as possible with your home. There are some gutters that are intended to stand out and make a statement, but for the most part, well-done gutters blend in to the background and go unnoticed. In that respect, gutters don’t add or detract to your home; they blend in.
Then why bother with gutters? If they aren’t there to improve the aesthetic look, what’s the point?
The real reasons for gutters
Gutters may not be there to improve the aesthetics of your home, but they are there to maintain the look. Without gutters, water will find the path of least resistance to the ground. On the way, it often abuses your trim and siding. This can cause peeling paint, rotting wood, and much more. Below is an example of that kind of problem when you don’t have gutters. This is not what you want your house to look like!
Once off your house and on the ground, the water is not done. Without the strategic direction of gutters, water can wreak havoc on your landscaping near your home. It can cause large puddles, wash out landscaping, and erode hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt. If you look at the photo below, you can see this stamped concrete has experienced significant erosion near the house. Decorative concrete is particularly expensive, and gutters help protect that investment.
Beyond maintaining the look of your home, gutters can play a vital role in protecting your home from water damage. Gutters redirect water away from your home and foundation. Without gutters, all that water can remain close to your home and seep into the ground. When you have that much water near your foundation, it can cause problems in the long run. Problems with your foundation are expensive problems!
