A new roof can update your home and instantly increase its curb appeal. Replacing old, worn shingles with a new roof that is water tight and clean will make the entire house look neater. It will also make any problems with your gutters stand out more. Consider adding to your home’s overall appeal by outlining the roof with a proper gutter.
The fact is that the gutter is just as important to the well-being of your home as the roof. Just as a leaky roof leads to water stains on ceiling inside, a gutter that is tearing away from the house will leave your foundation in jeopardy.
As the gutter pulls away from the eaves of the home, it allows water to fall from the roof directly along your foundation. As the water pounds the ground with our severe Oklahoma City storms, your foundation will gradually be washed away. Leaks can occur in basements and crawlspaces. You may quickly find yourself facing serious repair bills as a result of damaged or worn gutters.
Gutters are also necessary to keep the water diverted to the downspouts and away from the house. In addition to watching your foundation wash away, you will also find yourself dealing with heavy flooding in the yard. Because the water will not be properly diverted away from the house, you will find that the ground around your home stays saturated longer, making it largely unusable for the family.
Sometimes, gutters shift and the water will not flow correctly. This can lead to gutters that simply overflow in the spring and serious ice dams in the winter. Either condition poses a severe risk to your home and should be addressed quickly.
Many Oklahoma City roofers install new gutters in addition to performing roof restoration services. They have the skills and the training required to remove old, defective, unsightly gutters and replace them with beautiful new gutters.
While most people won’t notice the new gutters on the home, they will certainly take note of gutters that are in need of replacement.
