Reasons for Birmingham Homeowners to Get Gutters

Clogged Gutters Can Cause Serious Water Damage

A gutter system is designed for one main purpose – to divert rainwater and water run-off away from your home. The Ultimate Guard Gutter Protection System is a maintenance–free and clog-free gutter system that is guaranteed for life. This system comes in a variety of color options to complement any home. There are several reasons that your home needs a gutter protection system.

Your Foundation

Expanding and contracting soils around the home are the primary contributing factor of slab failure. When it rains a lot, the soils around a home become saturated with moisture and begin to expand. When the soils dry, they contract again. This cycle of expanding and contracting can compromise the support of the foundation causing cracks in foundations and masonry. A gutter system takes run-off rainwater from the roof and diverts it away from your home.

Staining of Siding and Masonry

Rainwater flooding off of an un-guttered roof will often hit the ground with such force that it will cause water, dirt, grass, and minerals to splash back against the side of your house. Over time this will stain the siding or masonry of your home. A properly installed gutter protection system will prevent this from happening.

Damage to Landscaping

Flowers, shrubs, ornamental trees, mulch, and soil located underneath the drip line of an un-guttered roof can be damaged from the water run-off after a severe thunderstorm. This excess of water can also cause too much moisture in the soil causing fungus and unwanted insects. A gutter protection system can prevent the water run-off and protect your plants, soil, and landscaping.
