Colorado Springs Gutters

All homes need a properly functioning gutter system to protect the siding, the foundation, and the landscaping from excess water runoff. Without rain gutters, water will rush down the sides of the house to stain siding, cause damage to the foundation and allow water to seep into the basement or cellar where mold or mildew will develop.

Gutters collect the rainwater and carry it through downspouts to an area far enough away from the foundation to prevent any of the aforementioned damage.

How Often Should Rain Gutters be Inspected?

Rain gutters should be checked at least twice a year for leaks and clogs from leaves and other debris or sagging and loose or missing supports that hold the gutters in place. Strong winds during major storms can twist gutters and hail can make dents and even holes that cause them to malfunction.

For this reason it is very important to assess the condition of the gutters after storms and have them repaired or replaced immediately to prevent damage to the home and property. Contact a professional gutter installer for advice on the type and style of guttering that is best for a particular property.
