How Guttering Works

Gutters are installed on homes and buildings to help rainwater, snow, and ice stop collecting on the eaves and roofs. Usually, gutters are installed on a slight slope to encourage the the water to run away from the house or structure and towards the downspouts that are placed at the four corners of the building. Both the gutters and the downspouts are designed to work together to keep water away from your siding, roof, foundation, and windows. The downspouts divert the water away from the house and sometimes even into water storage barrels, which can contain the rainwater or melted snow and ice for other purposes, such as water for gardens or landscaping. When your guttering system is working perfectly, water, ice, and snow damage is drastically reduced, ensuring the extended longevity of your home or building.

Gutters seem like they don’t do much, but if you don’t have a functional system, your house or structure is exposed to incredible amounts of water, snow, or ice any time the skies open up in a deluge. Even if you live in a dry climate, it’s still important to have gutters installed on your home in case of a sudden rainstorm or record snow fall. Unfortunately, by the time you realize that you need a guttering system, it’s usually too late and damage has already been done. Don’t get stuck repairing your foundation or having to replace your siding because you didn’t have a water diversion system. Bartlett and Sons can work with you to create the perfect guttering system for your home or building so that the structure is protected from any and all water damage.
