A gutter system is vital to protecting your home. While some might thin gutters are purely for cosmetic reasons, they are not. The purpose of gutters are for a number of reasons.
- They allow rainwater a place to go instead of staying on the roof or running down the siding of your home.
- They divert water away from the foundation decreasing the potential of pooling water, eroding the soil, and cutting pathways through your yard.
Effectively gutters coupled with splash blocks are there to prevent the negative impact water can have on your home and or your neighbors. Call trained professionals at At-Ease Home Inspections to ensure water is properly draining away from your house.
