Not having gutters on your home can lead to foundation damage. Gutters serve an essential purpose; they redirect rainwater away from the foundation and prevent water from pooling around the home. Rainwater can be especially damaging to the foundation as it can seep into the ground and cause the soil to expand and contract, leading to cracks in the foundation. Additionally, without gutters, water can collect in areas around the home, causing erosion and damaging the structure’s integrity. Over time, this damage can lead to costly repairs, including foundation repair. Therefore, it is essential to install gutters around your home to prevent potential issues that may affect the foundation’s stability and avoid the expense and inconvenience of repairing foundation damage.
