Why Gutters Are Important

8/3/2021 (Permalink)

Gutter Importance:

Gutters are a very important part of roofs for commercial and residential buildings. Their main role is transporting water and debris off of roofs. Especially in stormy seasons, it is important to ensure gutters are functioning to their highest ability. They are responsible for keeping roofs clean.

Removal of water and debris in gutters lightens the weight on the roof, preventing the possibility of roof leaks and caving under stress from weather. It is imperative that gutters are maintained in optimal working condition to prevent damage to the entire commercial building or residential home. 

Gutters should be inspected twice yearly and cleared of debris that could prevent flow of water and materials from roof. Also, check for standing water in gutters as it could indicate inadequate flow of water. Water should be moving down off the roof toward storm drainage areas. Keeping trees trimmed near the roof will alleviate stress on gutters because the branches will not slow water flow or contribute more debris to gutters.

Ensure water is being funneled away from the building once off the roof, as flooding can sometimes occur due to runoff not having proper.

Water stains on the internal ceiling can indicate a roof leak. They are usually an off color, older stains can look like a tea spill.
