Gutter installation is not a fun topic but it’s also not something homeowners can afford to dismiss. And while it’s tempting to take a DIY approach to installing gutters, even the most enterprising homeowner is bound to make a mistake or two during the process.
A properly-installed gutter system is essential for your home. It prevents landscaping problems and keeps your exterior walls dry and your home’s foundations intact. For it to function year-round, it must support not only its weight but also extra stresses in the form of heavy rain, snow, ice and wet debris.
