The gutter installation and manufacturing industry is projected to be a $6.0-billion industry by the year 2022. This growth has seen an upward trend since 2008 recession and is only poised to increase even more in the years to come. Its success serves as strong evidence about how important rainwater control systems are for the protection of a house.
Uncontrolled rainwater can wreak all sorts of havoc on many different parts of your home. Let our experts at Gutter Helmet® of Dallas Fort Worth show you a few of the very real problems poor gutter systems can cause.
High moisture levels create an ideal environment for the spread of unsightly mold. This problem can affect roofing shingles, siding and the various trim and finishes that border your home’s fixtures, making them look stained and unkempt. Moreover, some types of mold like black mold release potentially toxic spores. Poor gutter protection leads to obstruction on your primary drainage channels, allowing water to gather inside the troughs and promote mold growth.
Your gutters act as a way to direct excess rainwater away from your home’s foundation. Without them, high amounts of water can seep into the ground and loosen the soil around your home. This could lead to settling or, worse, cracking of the concrete foundation piers and platforms that hold up your home. Foundation damage can be costly to repair and even costlier to ignore; that’s why it’s often best to avoid it with proper gutter and downspout placement and maintenance.
