Why Do You Need Rain Gutters Installed?
Here is what happens if a house doesn’t have rain gutters installed. When it rains, water falls on the roof, and onto the ground surrounding the home’s foundation.
What is problematic is this leads to over saturation of expansive soil. This means the soil grows, placing thousands of pounds of pressure on the home’s foundation walls. The pressure can result in cracking, bowing, and leaks. None of this problems are cheap repairs, and can cause more foundation damage if not addressed.
If you have a crawlspace under your home, the lack of gutters can result in excess waster or ponding under your house. That can cause mold, rot, and moisture issues inside your home.

DIY Gutter Installation Versus Hiring A Pro
A big reason why Austin gutter installation experts recommend professional installs is safety. The reason to choose one company versus another is results.
Here are 5 reasons why gutters should be professionally installed:
- OSHA has standards that protect gutter installation contractors.
- Gutters are 10-100 feet long and hard to handle, requiring multiple people to do the install.
- If the gutters don’t have the proper run slope, they won’t work right.
- Seamless gutters are not sold in stores and have to be custom cut on site with a very expensive machine.
- The second leading cause of accidental death is slips and falls, and unskilled people working off a ladder on your roof is the cause of many unfortunate deaths.
