How gutters prevent rain damage to your home's foundation.

Thursday, August 27th, 2020 by John Lanzetta


Gutter protection from rain:

 On Average, South Carolina currently recieves 123.45 inches of rainfall each year.

As clay soil gets wet, it holds on to the water and becomes very soft. This soft soil can be weak, causing the home to sink down into it. Besides clay soil, concrete foundations are porous, so water fills in any pores it can find. Over time, the water can seep into the concrete foundation and ultimately break down the concrete.

This can cause cracks in exterior walls, chimney seperation, cracks and shifts in the door, and cracks within your foundation.
