Gutters collect rainwater from your roof and direct it away from your home through a downspout to keep it away from your home’s foundation and basement. If your home’s gutters aren’t working properly, the water could pool and possibly cause water damage, deterioration, erosion, mold, or rot on your roof, in your basement, or your foundation. If the water was to affect the foundation of your home, its structure and integrity could become compromised.

Gutters can easily weaken and stop working properly if they aren’t maintained well enough. Since gutters protect against major damage, their function is vital to your home. Leaves and debris can clog your gutters. Indiana storms and high wind can cause water to overflow or misalign. If a minor issue with your gutter system isn’t taken care of, then the issue can result in the need for an entire gutter replacement.
