You may not realize it, but gutters are a very important part of any home or small business. They do far more than prevent sheets of water from drenching you when you enter or exit a structure. What gutters actually do is protect the foundation from being ruined.
Gutters collect and move water away from the foundation of a building, otherwise, every time it rains, the foundation would be attacked by water which slowly erodes the concrete base, creating cracks, fissures and water damage. Even a small crack in the foundation of a structure is a real concern. The foundation holds up every part of your home so a weak point, however small, can quickly grow as there is so much pressure pushing down on it.
