The Importance of Installing Rain Gutters to Your Home

Can you imagine when it is raining so hard and your home does not have rain gutters installed? What do you think will happen to the foundation of your home if rain will keep on pouring on it directly and constantly?

Rain gutters are very important parts of our homes and in any buildings. Without it, the foundation of our home will deteriorate if the roof does not funnel water properly. Gutter is a narrow trough or duct which collects rainwater from the roof of a building and diverts it away from the structure, typically into a drain.

How does rain gutters work?

Gutters only don’t look good when it is installed as a finished look to a roof’s edge but it also help in preserving our homes especially its foundation.

As water hits the roof, it runs down the slope, to the edge. If gutters are installed in your roofs, it collects rainwater, where it runs through a down spout and diverting it away from your home, usually going to the canals. It is also the same with snow when it melts.

Other Uses of Gutters

It also helps to reduce erosion, prevents leaks in basements and crawlspaces. It protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water and it also provides a means to collect rainwater for later use like in watering the garden or for cleaning the cars. In some countries, they collect the water to wash their clothes or for taking a bath.
