Why does a house need gutters, anyway?
Prevent Erosion - Homes built to code are built on a slight slope to guide water away from the foundation of your home. If rain flows off your roof because you have no gutters, the water causes massive erosion, washing away more and more soil each time it rains. This causes your carefully sloped landscape to wear down, allowing runoff to flow toward your home instead of away from it. Erosion also causes the foundation to settle. Eventually, you may start to notice uneven floors and cracked walls and chimneys as a result
Protect Garden Beds - Many homeowners enjoy planting flowers and shrubs right next to the house. This creates a pleasing aesthetic as well as acting as a shade barrier or a windbreaker guarding your home against mother nature's elements. If soil erosion occurs because you don’t have gutters, your garden could literally wash away. Even if erosion is minimal, puddles of water will form in your garden bed and drown your plants.
Protect the Siding - When rainwater carries leaves, dirt, and tiny asphalt shingle particles down the siding, this results in unsightly staining. Your home looks dreary and unkempt when this happens, negatively impacting your curb appeal. The effects aren’t purely aesthetic, either. Over time, streams of rainwater can begin to rot your siding, especially if it’s made of wood. Rotten siding looks unappealing, but more importantly, it creates holes that invite pests into your home. If enough water seeps through the siding, it could affect your home’s structural integrity and become extremely expensive and difficult to fix.
