Though Powell, OH has plenty of newly constructed homes, 45% of the city’s homes were built between 1970 and 2000. And if yours is one of them, you should consider making plans for gutter replacement soon.
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 after 50 years. If your home is more than 20 years old, it’s probably due for gutter replacement.
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, and we certainly have our share of wet weather in Powell, Ohio. Rain and melted snow flow off your roof and onto the ground below; 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, water will pool in your flowerbeds and kill the plants and shrubs that serve as “windbreakers” for your home.
Your home’s exterior — the wood or siding especially — is often damaged if you don’t have gutters channeling water away from your house. 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 heavy basement flooding, the mold and mildew that will form pose health issues, especially for small children or elderly in your home.
