A common discussion among homeowners is whether rain gutters are necessary. Gutters serve many functional purposes, but they can also enhance the aesthetics of your home when installed properly. And having professional gutter installation in CT can even save you money in the long run on home repairs. Check out some of the benefits of installing rain gutters on your New England home.

Keep Your Home’s Exterior Looking Neat

Nothing creates the need for house siding replacement like water constantly splashing on the exterior. During heavy rainfall, dirt and debris can get on the side of the house and make the exterior look dirty. If left unattended, it can lead to paint chipping and even rotting in some areas. Gutters can prevent splashing water and keep your home’s exterior looking neat.

Reduce Insects Around Your Home

Standing water after rainfall is one of the biggest reasons why insects might be around your home. Termites, mosquitoes, and other insects love damp environments, which are often right along the perimeter of your home. Eliminating standing water is key to reducing the number of these insects, and rain gutters can help. The gutters will divert the flow of water away from your home and minimize puddling around the foundation.

Avoid Waterfalls From Your Roof

Most roofing contractors will suggest adding rain gutters for a couple of reasons. One of them is to prevent waterfalls from pouring off your roof during rainstorms. These “waterfalls” can destroy landscaping and make it impossible to enter or exit the home without getting soaked. As long as you keep your gutters clear, you won’t have to worry about these waterfalls.

Protect Siding and the Foundation

Wood siding that gets exposed to too much water can eventually lead to house siding replacement. The less exposure to water, the longer your siding will last, and gutters are a great way to keep water away. Also, not having rain gutters can damage your home’s foundation because of the water that puddles up around it. The appropriate gutter system will route water away from the foundation to keep it protected.
