Why Rain Gutters Are So Important for Your Home and Property


Our winter rains in the Central Valley are often severe, and it’s essential that your home has rain gutters in good condition to handle these downpours. If you’re looking for rain gutter installation in Fresno, CA or you need repairs for your current gutters, you can depend on us for the work. We custom-fabricate rain gutters, including seamless gutters, to match any home.

Please don’t delay when it comes to improving your rain gutters: they’re extremely important for protecting your home and property. We’ll go over some of the reasons why rain gutters are an essential part of any home.

They Protect the Side of Your House

Without gutters to catch the rain rolling off the roof of your house and move it toward downspouts, that rainwater would instead roll down the exterior walls of the building. Water is a powerful force that will cause damage to building material through erosion. First, the rain will leave ugly water stains on the house siding. It will wear away the protection of paint and other sealants, which will then allow the rain to inflict greater damage on the building material of the house. Gutters keep these water sheets away.

They Stop Soil Erosion

Water that falls straight down from the eaves of a house will strike the soil below and quickly start to erode it. Rain gutters divert the water toward downspouts and into the storm drainage system to prevent this, making your property more attractive and keeping the landscaping in good shape.

They Prevent Basement and Crawl Space Flooding

One of the worst dangers we face from heavy rainfall is flooding in the lowest parts of our homes, like crawl spaces and basements. Flooding in these areas can lead to serious property damage, electrical problems, and destruction of valuable belongings. It’s easy for this flooding to occur if the water coming off the roof of a house is falling around the base of the building. Gutters keep the water away, sending it into a storm drainage system. 

They Keep Water Away From the Foundation

Too much water building up around the foundation of a house creates a risk of soil erosion around a home’s foundation. This can put the structural integrity of the house in serious jeopardy. Gutters keep water from pooling around on your property.

They Increase Property Value

All the benefits we listed above go toward keeping your home and landscape protected and attractive—and that makes rain gutters an important part of improving the appeal of your home to potential buyers should you put it on the market. Buyers will also look to see that rain gutters are in excellent shape, and having customized seamless gutters like the ones we install will add even greater appeal.
