One of the biggest threats to your home, from top to bottom, is moisture. Standing water and leaks in and around your gutters can lead to structural damage over time. And when gutters are not utilized as a means to divert rainwater away from your home, your home is susceptible to foundation damage as well.
When determining the size of a home’s gutter system, a homeowner should consider the area’s rainfall density. This information can usually be found by asking a Giuffre Contracting, LLC representative. A home in an area that receives a lot of rain or one that has a steep roof pitch should have a larger gutter system. Similarly, a home surrounded by tall trees will need a larger system to accommodate falling leaves without clogging.
