Expert Advice on Gutters for Fort Myers & Cape Coral Homeowners

Posted at January 27, 2015 | By : | Categories : Gutters | 0 Comment

Gutters and downspouts are critical to ridding the roof of water and getting it away from the home’s foundation. For a Fort Myers or Cape Coral home, which has a lot of roof-space, the issue of rain is particularly important. Gutters and downspouts are an important part of any Southwest Florida roofing installation, but gutters and downspouts are sometimes overlooked.

For many people with a home in Southwest Florida these items are often overlooked or the last on the list of priorities for a homeowner – but they shouldn’t be.

Don’t neglect to consider the importance of proper drainage from your roof until its too late. In Fort Myers and Cape Coral during the rainy months you can expect as much as 40 inches of rain. Thats not counting the possibility of a tropical storm or hurricane which could dump upwards of 43 inches of rainwater in 24 hours.

If you don’t plan for gutters, drainage ditches and channels in advance, you might need to retrofit your Southwest Florida property with these to divert the flow of rain water into a controlled pattern. Without proper drainage you run the risk of structural water damage, roof leaks, erosion and ultimately damaging your landscaping.

Gutters and downspouts are not expensive, and they play a vital role in the roof doing its job. For any Southwest Florida house, it’s important to remove the water that runs off the roof as quickly as possible. The downspouts can be buried or positioned to carry that water away from the house.
