Grove City was founded in 1852. This means we have a lot of historical homes; some even pre-date the Civil War. Most Franklin County homes were built between 1970 and 1999, meaning your home’s gutters are likely due for replacement. The average gutter (typically made from aluminum, galvanized steel, or a combination) has a life span of 20 years, but even durable copper gutters need replacement around 50 years. If your gutters were last replaced before the year 2000, it’s definitely time to consider gutter replacement.
Some homes don’t even have gutters. These homeowners should consider gutter installation because gutters are an important part of your property protection.
Your home is probably your biggest investment. It just makes sense to protect it. Call 614-254-5489 or contact APCO today for a free gutter estimate.
Gutters are a water management system for property protection. We certainly have our share of wet weather in Grove City.
Rain and melted snow flow off your roof. Over the years, the erosion washes away more and more soil until it damages your foundation. Your first clue that your foundation is “settling” will be cracked walls and chimneys or slanted flooring. Even if the soil erosion is minimal, without gutters, puddles will pool in your flower beds and kill the shrubs that serve as “windbreakers” for your home.
Gutters channel the water away from your foundation, siding, and garden beds. Rotten siding looks bad and dramatically lowers your property value. But it also serves as an open invitation to termites, ants, spiders, and other unwanted critters.
Gutters can protect you from basement flooding, too. Over time, water pooling around your house can cause basement walls to push inward and crack. Even if you don’t have dramatic flooding, the mold and mildew that will form pose health issues, especially if you have small children or elderly family members in your home.
