Your Premier Resource for Gutters and Downspouts in Alexandria
Owning a home in beautiful Alexandria is a fantastic privilege that comes with one disadvantage; precipitation is a force that must constantly be battled. With the average precipitation at 7% over the national average and a third of the year seeing rain (or snow), your home needs constant protection from the potential damage water can cause. This is effectively done with the installation of rain gutters and downspouts. These simple mechanisms that are extremely easy and affordable to install can do wonders in safeguarding your home. Without gutters, rain water constantly running down your roof slope has the ability to do plenty of damage. First, the deluge of water can eventually infiltrate your roof deck, causing leaks. It can also run down the side of your house and exploit weaknesses in your window frames, causing leaks there. The back splash from the water creates unsightly mud stains on your siding and in severe instances can lead to mold. The biggest threat, however, is the softening of the ground directly above and around your foundation. Over time, this softening will cause your foundation to shift and sink. Also, the added moisture can cause more leakage into your basement (if you have one).
By installing a rain gutter and downspout, you safely redirect the water away from your home. The water will collect inside the gutter trough and travel its length until it pours into the downspout, which then carries the water away from your house. This means, no water accumulation in the roof, in your windows, on your siding or around your foundation. The problems a simple rain gutter saves you from are exponentially more costly than the installation of the gutter itself.
