You may think that you can save some money and maintenance by removing your gutters if they’re no longer performing like they should. The reality is that gutters plan an integral part in protecting your biggest asset – your home. Below are just a few reasons why you shouldn’t remove your gutters.
- Gutters protect your foundation from potential damage

- Gutters also prevent erosion around the foundation of your home
- Gutters prevent backsplash onto your home, which can lead to mold and mildew.
Low Maintenance Minnesota Gutter Installation
The one downside to gutters is that they require regular maintenance to ensure they’re not clogged. A clogged gutter doesn’t serve its purpose and can even damage soffit and fascia because the water enters the gutters and has nowhere to go. Thankfully contractors have begun to offer seamless and leafless gutter options to give their customers a low maintenance gutter installation option compared to the traditional gutter system.
