How Do They Help?
Are you always having constant dampness in your basement? This issue can cause cracking in foundations and even the growth of mold to occur. When this happens, you may end up paying so much out the wallet in repairs. Having proper drainage is vital to ensure that these kinds of things do not occur. That is why having an adequate gutter installed and adequately maintained are essential for the health of your foundations.
How Do Gutters Work?
When it rains or snows, the water will run off your roof. If there were no gutters installed, it would fall to the ground all along your foundation. This water could pool in areas and lead to the complications as mentioned earlier. Instead with gutters installed it channels this water into a downspout, which in turn drains to a designated spot or into a further drainage system. Also, to do a proper job, the downspout should move the water away from the foundation at least 10 feet away. You may even have gutter guards installed to better protect from debris such as leaves from clogging your gutter. In turn, preventing them from doing the job they are meant to do.
Part Of The Complete Package
Of course, water always finds its way everywhere. However, having a gutter, you are protecting the foundations of your building from the water that would accumulate falling off the roof. Other ways to protect your foundations are with ground surface grade to make sure that what runoff does fall near you building flows away from your structure.
