Rain Gutters

Standing at your front door having rain cascade down your back as you unlock the door is an unpleasant experience that anyone wants to avoid by having quality rain gutters in place. Keeping rain from eroding your home’s foundation is an even better reason. You might even want rain gutters, so you don’t have erosion issues. However, there are a few other benefits you might not have considered that can make rain gutters an excellent investment for your home. Here are two to consider:

  • Reduce Humidity – Giving rainwater a safe path away from the foundation and exterior walls of your home helps keep humidity lower inside. This is important not only for keeping your home comfortable but for reducing the workload on your air conditioner and keeping mold from growing.
  • Water Collection – Collecting rainwater is growing in popularity to water flower and vegetable gardens and provide drinking water for livestock and outdoor pets. With rain gutters in place to route water to a holding tank, you can reduce your water bill. It can also be routed directly to where the water is needed without using a tank.
