Improvements are a wonderful way to elevate the quality of life in your very living space. These days, people get excited about integrating new “smart” technologies to automate lights, televisions and even coffee makers. But a truly smart home improvement is installing new seamless gutters because they can add value to your home. Here’s why.
1. Seamless Gutters Protect Structural Integrity
The single greatest threat to any home is water. That may sound odd when you think about severe weather events such as hurricanes and tornadoes. But, in reality, severe weather is less likely to damage the average home than a simple water infiltration.
When water seeps through the roof’s edge, it can get behind walls and cause structural deterioration to studs, beams and other materials. Consider leaving a 2X4 outdoors in the rain for a few weeks and it’s easy to see what water can do. Seamless gutters add protection.
2. Seamless Gutters Make A Home Safer
Beyond materials losing structural integrity, water penetrations can start hazardous molds growing behind your walls. We’ve all heard the horror stories reported in the news about dangerous molds. Seamless gutters rank among the best water protections and quality installations improve values.
3. Seamless Gutters Improve Curbside Appeal
If you have ever spoken to a real estate agent about what home buyers want, many will tell you to start with curbside appeal. That basically means that the first visual impression makes a significant difference when selling a home at or around asking price. Old, makeshift or rusty gutters are a turn-off. But seamless gutters are far more visually appealing and can be a sales point for a real estate agent. Seamless gutters can add real dollars when selling a property.
