While many homeowners think that keeping water out of their basements, attics and first-floor areas is most significantly impacted by proper landscaping and a good roof, other important factors can play a key role in protection during high precipitation events. With years of experience as one of the top Bucks County roofers, we understand the importance of proper gutter protection against water infiltration.
If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your roof until you have a leak. Unfortunately, even the smallest of leaks can cause extensive damage inside your home.
Understanding The Importance of an Effective Gutter System
Proper gutter installation that covers the roofline properly is one of the single best protection against water damage to a home. While gutters are well known to protect basements and first floors against flooding, through proper gutter installation, homeowners can also protect the roof of their home from damage. Because water can pool in areas of a roof, gutters are key to protecting against water damage under roof tiles and on sub roofing.
In addition to damaging roof tiles, the damage to other areas in a home from insufficient roof gutters can be substantial for a homeowner. When water pools on rooftops, the water often ends up in the attic which can leak down into walls and cause extensive damage to personal property and electrical wiring.
Gutters also are also the best solution in removing excess water in and around the foundation of a home. With the proper installation of downspouts and gutter extensions, excess water can readily be removed away from a home and protect the foundation and first-floor areas from flooding.
Knowing how to get a comprehensive plan for gutters to protect a home is critical to ensuring that a roof and foundation area are adequately protected from flooding events.
Homeowners that are considering getting comprehensive gutter protection should:
• Examine Your Home’s Current Gutter System
• Look for Damage Around Roof Tiles and in The Attic
• Look for Damage in the Basement or First Floor from Water Penetration
• Look for Broken, Outdated and Insufficient Gutter Coverage Areas
