Rain gutters are sometimes thought to be an eyesore, and truthfully, poorly installed PVC rain gutters can be.
In places like Southern California, where the weather is dry for most of the year, some people choose to forgo rain gutters if they are able to do so. California building codes allow gutterless roofs if the roofline is pitched so that rainfall is angled away from the foundation, but the extra assurance of having streamlined rain gutters has several advantages.
Properly functioning rain gutters protect your house from water damage by redirecting the flow of rain away from the foundation. Without this protection, your roof, walls, and foundations can suffer expensive damage, which may include:
- Exterior staining.
- Damage to the walls.
- Settling or cracked foundation.
- Basement flooding.
A well-maintained rain gutter system is a straight-forward preventative measure against expensive, time-consuming damage in the future. But you don’t have to choose between function and aesthetics.
