The two most critical parts of any home are the roof and the structure itself. Your home’s structure is what will keep it standing, protecting you and your family from the danger of outside elements and providing stability. In the same manner, the roofing system protects the inside of your home, preventing critters, weather, and debris from coming inside and causing damage.
Just as the foundation makes the entire home standing strong, the roof plays a major role as well. In order for the roof to funnel water properly, you must have good gutter systems in place. Gutters are critical, so make sure you choose a professional who can get the job done right. Improperly installed gutters will work against your home, and not with it.
Water on a roof naturally flows down the sloped angles of the roof. When your roofing system has properly installed gutters, water will collect along the edges of the roof and flow toward the corners of the house where it can drain down through the gutters and away from your house.
The reason gutters are so important is that without them, water would collect near the base of the house, weakening the foundation over time. This is sure to be a serious problem for the structure and stability of your home over time.

Gutters and downpipes are often overlooked in the home maintenance schedule
Gutters and downpipes are frequently ignored in the home upkeep schedule – Yet they are among the most important components due to the huge quantity of water that falls on the typical Australian roof. Ignoring them means running the risk of significant damage through leaks caused by blocked or damaged guttering and downpipes.
Seamless gutters should be carefully inspected at least once a year. Walk around your property on a day with no rain, and check that the gutters are sturdy and intact. Look for any cracks or places that seem unstable. If you find anything that concerns you, call your roofer to come and inspect the gutters and the roof.
Additionally, on a rainy day, check the gutters again and make sure the rainwater is flowing down the gutters. You are looking to see if the water flows easily without leaking or drips from other places on the roof. The water should not pool or puddle at the base. Once you’ve checked the water flowing properly through the downspouts, make sure that the bottom of the downspout stops at least two feet away from your home. Again, you want to see to it that no water is pooling near the foundation of the home.
If your home has older gutters, there is a high chance that water will leak from them. This is because they are not seamless like today’s modern gutter designs. Seamless gutters are much more aesthetically pleasing, as well as more functional.

A gutter in need of repair or replacement often means the roof is also in need of work.
