How’s Your Gutter System Functioning?

Posted by at 9:00 AM

With another Minnesota spring now upon us, well . . . get ready for the rain!

The weather's beautiful this week, but you know it won't last.  And if you haven’t already, this may be a good time to check out the condition of your rain carrying system.

As amazing as the wonders of spring or summer rainstorm can be, such excessive amounts of moisture are very hard on your home. And an efficiently-functioning gutter system will do a lot more than just keep you dry as you walk out your front door. Gutters are an essential part of protecting one of your biggest investments – your home.

In addition to keeping you dry and directing water runoff away from the base of your home, a properly installed gutter system will benefit your home in the following ways:

  • By controlling moisture problems in eaves and overhang areas
  • By preventing landscape washouts
  • By preserving the integrity of your foundation walls
  • By reducing costly maintenance to soffit, fascia, and exterior doors

In contrast, improperly installed gutters have a tendency to leak or overflow. This can easily cause water damage, blistering, and rot to your home’s foundation often resulting in an expensive maintenance project that could have been avoided.
