Your home’s exterior drainage device is consisted of the gutter. Without it, rainwater will damage your house’s foundation and roof, or flood the basement.
The gutters are not expensive to install.
The installation of a rain gutter presumes that the edge of the roof is right over the first half of the gutter, so this is an important thing to keep in mind. This way any type of rain will be drained.
To avoid puddles around the foundation you need to position the downspouts so the water will run far enough from the house. The gutter and downspouts must be very stable.
You need to perform regular checks, twice a year, to maintain them in perfect condition. The gutters may have sections that sag or that have holes in them. The debris must also be clean regularly.
Attach the hangers firmly to the gutters; attach a new one in the case of sagging sections. You can fix the leaks with a tube of waterproof adhesive.
Another aspect to consider is if your house is surrounded by trees in which case you need a leaf guard. This way you avoid a lot of trouble.
