The Benefits of New Gutters in Columbia
A lot of people move into their home and don’t think twice about
their gutters. This is a big problem, however, as a ton of problems can
occur when you fail to provide your gutter system with proper upkeep.
Your home could experience flooding, for instance, and you could end up
with standing water in your yard, in turn attracting
other pests. Fortunately, Modern Exterminating can provide you with brand new gutters
designed to last for years to come. We use nothing but the best products
from industry-leading companies, and our team will arrive at your property
with everything needed to get the job done ASAP. Plus with excellent warranties,
you’re sure to receive high-quality long-lasting upgrades when you

Why install gutters on your home? Here are just a few reasons why:
- In any structure, keeping the ground surrounding the foundation as dry
as possible is critical. Wet dirt surrounding the foundation can lead
to severe structural and insect-related problems. Gutters help control
this problem by taking rainwater that falls on the roof and draining it
away from the foundation.
- Gutters prevent water from flowing off the roof and over entrances to the
home and porch. They keep people dry as they enter and leave the home.
Even a light rainfall can create a sheet of water that runs off the edge
of the roof.
- Water falling from the edge of a roof can splash dirt on the lower part
of the exterior walls as it strikes the ground. It can harm flowers and
delicate shrubs and break down mulch.
- Houses without gutters are more likely to experience termite damage and
wood rot on the fascia and soffit as water exiting the roof finds openings
in the paint and caulking. Properly installed and maintained gutters keep
water away from wood and funnel it to the ground or storm water system.
Water that falls uncontrolled from a rooftop has to go somewhere. In a
heavy rain, a high volume of water flowing away from the house can erode
the dirt around it. This can cause water to build up in the yard, which
can lead to muddy soil, damaged grass and can break down chemical
- The most important task of a gutter is to funnel water away from basement
walls. Water that falls from a roof can saturate the ground near the foundation.
Over time, the water will find its way down and through the foundation
walls due to hydrostatic pressure. The result is cracks in basement walls
and eventually flooding in the basement. Even without cracks, sitting
water can soak through the basement wall and result in a buckled foundation,
forcing you to pay for costly repairs.
- Water sitting near a foundation wall eventually works its way under the
foundation, causing it to settle. The walls on the settled part of the
foundation can then separate from the rest of the house.
