Rain gutters are a very important part of your roofing structure but their function is really much larger than keeping the water out of your face as you dash through the rain. Rain gutters help to preserve the structure of your foundation and walls by diverting water away from the base of your home. Without gutters, water may cause the earth beneath your home to shift and settle faster than it would naturally, potentially resulting in cracks in your foundation.
In addition to channeling water away from your foundation, rain gutters help to reduce basement leaks and floods by locating the downspouts away from the structure of your building.
Available in a variety of style such as box, K-style or half-round, rain gutters come in sizes that best match your needs. Colors and finishes are numerous to help the rain gutters blend in best with your architectural needs, ranging from white to black and everything in between. Depending on your needs, rain gutters can be custom build if you have unique angles and pitch changes.
