We are your roofing experts in Glen Burnie, MD. Did you know our roofing department at Horizons Unlimited Home Improvements also installs gutters and downspouts? Today we are going to go over a few reasons why they are so important to your home.
First of all, gutters prevent rainwater from flowing over the roof edge onto entrances of your home and onto the porch. This prevents big puddles of water to pool around these areas of your home, and protects people when they are entering the home from a huge rainwater spillage. Additionally, it stops water from puddling around the foundation of your home, which potentially can weaken it. Over time, this can cause cracks in your foundation, and allow leakage into your basement or crawlspace. Aside from preventing damage to the home, gutters also stop excess rainwater from spilling onto your plants and any dirt in your landscaping. Too much water pooling on dirt can cause it to erode, which may eventually damage your grass as well.
These are a few reasons why gutters and downspouts are a very important thing to have installed on your house.
