How Clog-Free Gutter Systems Protect Homes
Prevent Water Damage with High-Quality Gutters
There are many homeowners that consider gutter systems to be an unnecessary expense but those homeowners are sorely mistaken. Gutters are actually one of the most important investments you can make for your home. Their importance lies in their role as a rainwater management system that redirects water away from your home. This prevents the rainwater from causing extensive damage to your property that can lead to very costly repairs.
Homeowners with a proper gutter system must still worry with gutter maintenance since the majority of gutters are equipped with debris shedding components. This means they are still susceptible to clogging and clogged gutters cannot properly redirect water away from homes. Fortunately, the experts at Ultimate Gutter Guard of Greenville have the perfect gutter solution in our K-Guard gutter system. K-Guard gutter systems have a mounted hood to shed debris so they can continue to protect your home.
The Consequences of Clogged Gutters:
- Basement Flooding: A common occurrence in your home is not equipped with gutters. Basement flooding happens when water pools around the base of your home from where it finds an opening through which it can enter. Common entry points are basement windows and degraded seals.
- Foundation Damage: Damage to your foundation when water pooling at the base of your home saturates the soil to the point of expansion. The expanded soil strains the walls of your foundation, causing it to crack. As the soil dries, it contracts and relieves pressure, destabilizing your home or causing it to sink.
- Eroded Landscaping: When water constantly runs off of your roof and over clogged gutters, your landscape is subjected to erosion. This results in a bare and damaged landscaping.
- Wood Rot: Clogged gutters result in water flowing over every side, including the back. This affects where the gutter attaches to your fascia board. Constant exposure to water bubbling over can cause extensive damage to the fascia and roof.
