We are all mesmerized by large amounts of powerful rushing water. But how often do we think about the power and the damage repeated rain showers can do to our house? Uncontrolled rain water falling from your roof can cause many, if not major problems. A properly installed gutter system can reduce, and in most cases eliminate the damage caused by drainage problems. Without rain gutters you have a much higher percentage of having moisture build-up behind siding and fascia boards that will eventually cause decay. Water can enter your basement due to excess rain or an early thaw. The pounding force of rain coming off of the roof can cause dead or damaged plants, soil erosion, stained concrete, ruin landscaping, and cause wear and tear on siding, window casings, and garage doors.
