There are many reasons that your home needs a gutter protection system from Ultimate Gutter Guard of Huntsville.
Expanding and contracting soils around the home are a large factor of slab damage. Heavy rain makes the soil around a home become saturated with moisture and begin to expand. One dry, the soil then contracts. This cycle of expanding and contracting can damage the support of the foundation by creating cracks in foundation and masonry. A gutter system prevents this by taking run-off rainwater from the roof and diverting it away from your home.
Staining of Siding and Masonry
When rainwater floods off of an un-guttered roof, the force of the water hitting the ground will often cause water, dirt, grass, and minerals to splash back against the side of your house. After long periods of time, the siding or masonry of your home can become stained. A gutter protection system that is installed properly will keep this from happening.
Damage to Landscaping
Flowers, shrubs, ornamental trees, mulch, and soil located underneath the drip line of an un-guttered roof can also become damaged from water run-off after a severe thunderstorm. Excess water can also cause too much moisture in the soil causing fungus and unwanted insects. A gutter protection system can protect your plants, soil and landscaping.
