Gutters 101; The Basics

Gutters play a very important part in keeping your home safe from water damage. As the rain rolls down your roof, your gutters are responsible for safely collecting that water and diverting away from your home. Regardless of the materials that your gutters are made of, every gutter system needs a little maintenance from time to time. If your gutters are more than 20 years old, you may need to have a local Darien gutter installation service replace them for you.

Around 600 gallons of water will travel through the gutters of a 2000 square foot home for every inch of rain that falls. When you stop and think about it, that's a lot of water! The average curbside trashcan holds 40 gallons or more just to give you an example of weight and quantity. When a gutter fails, things can go south quickly! When you stop to consider the kind of damage and costs associated with a failed gutter system, it's clear why every home needs reliable gutters.

If your gutters are clogged or broken, you could see damage to the following parts of your home in Darien:

  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Windows
  • Soffit
  • Fascia
  • Mold
  • Decay
  • Interior Flooding
  • Cracked foundation

In Northern Illinois, we average about 35 inches of rain each year, so you need reliable gutters to protect your home. But dont forget about them once your new system is installed. They should be inspected each season and cleaned when they start to fill up with debris. The more trees and foliage that surrounds your home will increase the amount of maintenance that they require.
