Gutter Drainage Solutions: Protect Your Foundation from Water Damage

Water management is crucial for protecting your foundation. As the ground becomes saturated with water, it can cause the soil to shift and no longer support your foundation. This can cause your foundation to settle and compromise the entire structural stability of your home. Investing in quality gutter drainage solutions can easily prevent foundation issues and save you a lot of expenses and headaches in the long run. 

Key Aspects of Proper Water Management

When it rains, all of the water on your roof needs to be managed and drained to avoid it from falling onto the ground around your foundation. To protect your foundation from water damage, you should utilize both reliable water diversion and gutter drainage solutions. Gutters will collect runoff water and prevent it from pooling around your home’s foundation. However, without downspouts that successfully divert the water away from your home, your gutters are virtually useless. At AquaGuard Gutter Solutions, we offer a complete water protection system. It includes our patented GutterShutter™ system, as well as downspout extensions for proper water diversion. Using our gutter drainage solutions for your home’s water management will ensure your foundation is safe from damage.

The Purpose of Rain Gutters

Rain gutters are meant to funnel water off of the roof and divert it away from the home. Too much water can cause damage to the soil around your home, which could result in even worse damage to your foundation. If they do their job right, rain gutters collect water and direct it to the downspout to flow away from the home. For rain gutters to funnel water away from your home, it's important to keep them cleaned out and clear of debris. Branches, leaves, and other droppings can cause rain gutters to clog, even if they have gutter guards.

Prevent Leaves and Debris from Clogging your Gutters

Many homeowners struggle to maintain the condition of their gutters, especially in the spring’s heavy rains and winds. That’s why we offer the GutterShutter™, our patented gutter protection system that prevents leaves and debris from clogging your gutters. Different than most gutter guards, our system is completely covered and sealed with no verticle openings. There’s also no filters or screens, meaning there’s no hassle on your end.

The Purpose of Downspouts

During heavy rains, your gutters are displacing large amounts of rainwater through downspouts. When your downspouts simply direct water up against your home’s foundation walls, the soil surrounding your home becomes saturated and can shift and create unnecessary pressure on your foundation. For water diversion to work, your downspouts must direct water away from your home. Installing downspout extensions that point water towards a designated area will protect your home from preventable damage.
