Gutters divert water away from your home, plain and simple. This humble function provides long-term value: Expensive damage results when water is allowed to run off the roof and pool around the home’s foundation. The experienced team at EcoShield Exteriors plans all parts of the gutter installation process. To get started with placing gutters on your home or business, please call us in Littleton at 720-900-5326.
A Sometimes Overlooked but Always Essential Feature of a Home
Colorado averages about 17 inches of rain yearly. Although it is not one of the rainiest places in the U.S., every building in the state still needs an effective gutter system to shed water safely. The EcoShield team evaluates roof pitch, directional orientation and the current roofing system to determine the best approach to an effective gutter system for your home.
Colorado does get snow and ice, every winter. You can count on it. We also get pretty dramatic weather shifts, with heavy snow one day and a bright, cloudless day the next. That means snow in our area usually melts quickly. Therefore, you need the right gutter system to catch and divert the melted snow and ice away from your home, just like rain water. When you choose an experienced gutter installer, you can rest assured that the system will be placed at the right height from the edge of the roof to allow proper water collection, but also to allow solid ice and snow to slide off of the roof without damaging the gutters. The experienced installation team also ensures the proper gutter grade and placement for maximum effectiveness.
Why Are Gutters So Important?
Without any gutter system, rainwater and melted snow drip to the ground and lead to:
- Rotted, warped or discolored home siding
- Eroded, rotted or discolored foundation
- Flooded basement
- Damaged and eroded landscaping
- Damaged paint
Therefore, gutters protect the house and landscaping from damage, which can extend the overall lifetime of the structure and the property.
While gutters do direct water away from the bottom of the house, they also prevent water from getting behind the home’s siding. If moisture gets stuck there, it can quickly lead to rot and mold, which is bad for the house as well as the health of the people living there. Gutters can also add curb appeal and value to the house.
