Does My House Need Gutters?

Posted on April 10, 2019 · Posted in Gutters, Roofing Education

Having gutters on a home shouldn’t be considered an optional investment.

Rather, they work to properly protect the home’s foundation and water resistance. Specifically, the investment in seamless gutters could be the best way for you to improve water flow from your roof away from your home. Here’s what you need to know.

Why Are Gutters So Valuable?

Gutters have a very valuable job — they move water away from the home. New products no longer stand out or look like an eyesore on the home. When in place, the gutters funnel water away from the home’s foundation, reducing the risk of soil erosion. This is important in preventing the foundation from exposure to the potential damage that could lead to a wet basement.

Types of Rain Gutters

A variety of rain gutter types exist, each offering a number of features. It’s important to know that old-style gutters and downspouts, made of vinyl, are no longer your only option. You can invest in aluminum gutters, for example, for a better-quality product that looks good longer.

Seamless Gutters — What We Offer

Horch Roofing provides you with numerous options in seamless gutters. These gutter systems are highly durable and look good. They are designed to function more efficiently compared to older style gutters, which often stood out in the home’s appearance. They are also far more durable and capable of lasting for years. They are coated with a superior baked-on enamel product to give them a 20-year limited finish warranty. The finish, which comes in many different color options, also will not chip or flake.
