The function of a gutter may seem incidental, but it is actually one of the most important parts of the building structure. Properly installed gutters divert rain water from the building, not only for the purpose of appearances, but for the integrity and longevity of the building structure.
Rain water that is allowed to pool around the foundation of a building can over time damage the foundation, causing eventual settling in the ground below it, and cracking in the internal structure. Improperly diverted rain water can also cause mold to develop within the building, and it can damage important building materials such as insulation, weakening or even destroying its effectiveness.
Seattle is a city that gets a lot of rain, so it is important to have the best gutter installation possible. Poorly installed gutters can cause great problems for the look and structure of your home or business. Gutters must be properly sized, with both the size of the building, and the average amount of rainfall a year for your area, taken into account. They must also be placed at the correct angle to direct the rain water to downspouts, especially in a torrential rain. Gutter segments must be properly connected to avoid leaking, and anchored securely at the right points so that they don’t loosen when exposed to high winds.
Most importantly, a gutter installation needs to be made of the right materials, which will offer homeowners and businesses in Seattle the most durability in difficult weather elements such as snow and ice. Gutter systems made from inferior materials commonly sold may be easier on the budget, but they can’t survive the test of time.
