The Benefits of Gutter Installation
Investing in professional gutter installation offers numerous advantages for homeowners.
Here are some key benefits you can enjoy by installing high-quality gutters on your property:
Protects Your Home's Foundation
Properly functioning gutters play a crucial role in safeguarding your home's foundation. They efficiently channel rainwater away from your property, preventing it from pooling around the foundation.
By directing water away, gutters help to maintain the structural integrity of your home and minimize the risk of costly foundation damage, such as cracks and shifting.
Prevents Basement Flooding
One of the common consequences of inadequate water drainage is basement flooding. Without gutters, rainwater can accumulate around the foundation and seep into your basement, causing water damage and potential mold growth.
By capturing and redirecting rainwater away from your home, gutters significantly reduce the risk of basement flooding, keeping your lower levels dry and protected.
Excessive water runoff can wreak havoc on your carefully manicured landscaping. Heavy rain can erode soil, damage plants, and create unsightly puddles.
By installing gutters, you can control the flow of water and direct it away from delicate flower beds, shrubs, and trees. This helps to preserve your landscaping investments and maintain a beautiful outdoor space.
Prevents Exterior Damage
Without proper water management, rainwater can cause significant damage to your home's exterior. It can lead to paint peeling, rotting wood, and unsightly stains on siding and brickwork. Gutters effectively collect water from the roof and direct it away from the walls, protecting your home's exterior surfaces and maintaining their appearance and longevity.
Reduces Soil Erosion
When rainwater cascades from your roof, it can erode the soil around your property. This erosion not only affects the aesthetic appeal of your yard but can also undermine the stability of your landscape. Gutters prevent excessive water runoff and ensure controlled drainage, minimizing soil erosion and preserving the integrity of your yard.
Prevents Water Damage to Fascia and Soffit
The fascia and soffit are essential components of your home's roof system.
When water overflows from clogged or absent gutters, it can seep into these vulnerable areas, leading to:
- Wood rot
- Mold growth
- And structural damage
By installing gutters, you provide a protective barrier that prevents water from saturating the fascia and soffit, preserving their structural integrity.
Enhances Longevity of Roofing Materials
Proper water management is crucial for extending the lifespan of your roofing materials. When rainwater is allowed to pool on your roof or seep into the underlying layers, it can accelerate deterioration and lead to premature roof failure. By directing water away from your roof through gutters, you help to maintain the integrity of your roofing system and maximize its longevity.
Improves Overall Home Value
Investing in gutter installation not only protects your home but also adds value to your property. Potential buyers recognize the importance of a well-maintained gutter system in preserving the condition of a home. By having functional gutters in place, you enhance the overall appeal and value of your property, making it more attractive to prospective buyers in the future.

“I was just so impressed with these guys. First of all, they answer the phone! Or, on the rare occasion that they couldn’t, they returned the call very quickly. Through every aspect of working with them they were highly responsive. When it came time to put the new roof on they were in and out all in the same day – and they totally cleaned up the mess. I couldn’t even tell that they had been there. Pricing was very fair, and Mick was just a real joy to work with. He is very calm-mannered – no hyped-up salesman here. He explained everything to us thoroughly and we were just really impressed with the quality of the job. Quality materials, quality workmanship, responsive in their communications, just a really solid crew. Great job Front Runner Roofing! You’re top-notch”Doug F.
How long do I have to file an insurance claim?
You may have one year from the date of the storm to file a claim. However, don’t wait that long. Because every policy is different, it is important to check your coverage and act quickly.
Does my homeowner's insurance cover flood damage?
Probably not. Storm damage is defined as “the destructive result of weather-related events.” Storm insurance typically covers rain, snow, hail, or wind damage. Flood insurance is a separate policy that you may or may not have.
We are moving soon, can storm damage impact resale value?
Yes. And more than resale value, you likely won’t be able to sell your home until you repair any storm damage. A home inspection is a regular part of the buying/selling process, and any damage must be repaired before you can sell.
I have storm damage from the last storm here, where do I start?
Start by taking photos of any damage you can see from the ground, then call a local roofing contractor for a full roof inspection. Once you discuss their findings you can begin to file a claim with your insurance company and start the repair process.
