Why You Need Rain Gutters

Although Utah is known as a dry state, it still sees a lot of precipitation. Gutters help direct water runoff away from your home or business so it doesn’t create any issues with your foundation. Additionally, gutters simply make it easier to enter and exit a structure by diverting water away from high-traffic areas.

How to Know If Rain Gutters Are Bad

If it’s so crucial to ensure rain gutters are properly installed, clean, and functional, how come so many homeowners don’t know there’s a problem until it’s too late? The simple answer is usually, “outta sight, outta mind!”

Most homeowners and business owners don’t know there’s a problem with their rain gutters until they see the symptoms:

  • Ice Damming
  • Icicles
  • Leaks
  • Pooling Water

What’s Wrong with My Gutters?

Sometimes rain gutters are installed completely level, without a pitch. This means that instead of allowing the water to flow naturally through the drains to the downspouts, it pools in the gutter or overflows and cascades walls of water over the roof’s edge.

When the water can’t properly drain through downspouts, in winter it can freeze and create ice dams or icicles. In summer, the water can pool until it spills out in all the wrong places, allowing for puddles at the structure’s foundation.

Sometimes the gutter itself is installed perfectly, but debris has built up in the system. Clogs mean the water can’t drain properly, and they can create an inviting habitat for bugs or little critters to live.

Six years ago we had our home completely remodeled outside with new James Hardie siding, trim and rain gutters with Dutch Quality Stone with Renovation By Burbach. We love the look and the durability of our exterior renovation! Recently, however, a small section of the black facia came loose on the upstairs roofline, most likely from the wind we have been experiencing. I spoke with Brandon at Renovation by Burbach and he was able to send Luke and Zach to make the necessary repair. He took time to understand our concern and was most helpful. I called on Monday and Brandon was able to adjust schedules and have them here on Wednesday. They were professional, friendly, and extremely careful with a very tall ladder in our front garden area, They quickly secured the facia back in place and also took time to look around the roof gables and repaired a loose shingle. They even removed some accumulated leaves in the rain gutter on the way down. Luke and Zach were awesome! I encourage anyone thinking of a new and improved look for their home with quality workmanship to contact Brandon at Renovation by Burbach. I am pleased to recommend them.

Benefits Of Rain Gutter Repair

There is no shortage of benefits that come from proper maintenance and repair of your rain gutters. Each issue that crops up from neglecting them is not only a major headache for home and business owners but could result in thousands of dollars being washed away.

Prevent Structure and Foundation Damage

Gushing water that pools at the bottom of your property will lead to cracks in the foundation as well as land erosion, which weakens the entire structure of the building.

Prevent Flooding and Leaks

Naturally, if water pools at the bottom of the property, not only will seepage occur into the soil which can creep in through the aforementioned cracks, but window wells will get flooded and that means standing water in your basement or ground floor. Overflowing gutters can also cause leaks in the roof, with water getting into attics and down walls.

Prevent Pest Infestation

Standing water means more than just flooding; it means bugs. Bugs enjoy breeding in the swampy waters left in your gutters by mud and leaves. This type of environment is a haven for hornets and mice as well, who will take up residence in this marsh-like habitat.

Let The Experts Handle It

No one wants to get up on a ladder with a trowel, gloves, and other tools to clean and repair their rain gutters, especially if they’re a novice. Not only is it a dirty job, but multi-story homes and businesses can be dangerous to navigate. Luckily, we love what we do! One of our professional team members won’t just do a simple cleaning; they’ll keep an eye out for other issues going on that might impede the structural fidelity of your gutter system.
