While gutters may not be the first thing that comes to mind when improving your home, they are certainly important.
Gutters work to move water off of your roof and away from your home. Without gutters, your roof, siding, windows, foundation, and basically, the entire exterior of your home would be at major risk for water damage.
A clogged, damaged, or otherwise malfunctioning gutter is also bad news. Gutters in poor shape allow water to create puddles near your foundation.
Matters get worse (and more expensive) when you have particularly heavy rainfall. Bottom line: gutters that don’t function properly hurt your bottom line.
Gutters also help prevent creating a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. A lack of standing water is vital to avoid mold in your home and erosion.
Making the Right Choice
You really can’t (and shouldn’t) do without quality gutters, but how do you choose the right ones and care for them properly?
First, consider the material. All gutters will require some regular cleaning but some materials require more maintenance than others.
You’ll find galvanized metal, aluminum, and copper to be some of the most common types of gutters.
Galvanized metal gutters tend to lose their color over time and will require frequent upkeep to prevent corrosion. Aluminum gutters are quite common but susceptible to denting and marks.
Copper gutters strike the ideal balance between function and style. The material is strong, long-lasting and develops a protective patina over time.
To get the most out of your gutters, be sure to clean them twice a year. The beginning of spring and end of fall are usually the best times. Be sure to clear out your downspouts while you’re at it.
Always make sure your gutters are properly structured and are not pulling away from the exterior. A good rule of thumb is to have the water flowing through fall at least 10 feet away from your home.
