WHY DO WE NEED GUTTERS?
Gutters are the part of the roof that drains excess water to an allocated area. It helps to prevent the water from dripping down from the side of your roof, as that will increase the possibility of flooding and foundational damage. Additionally, it will help to prevent the water from being trapped on the roof, as it will provide a way to irrigate the water from the roof on to other parts.
Some commercial buildings have a flat roof, which makes the owner thinks that they don’t need a gutter, but this is not true. When the water comes into contact with the flat surface on the side of the building, it will trap the dust and dirt particles in the air, creating a dark and nasty watermark on the side of the building. Proper gutters allow the water to flow down from the building naturally, keeping the side of the building much cleaner.

OLD GUTTER SYSTEMS
An outdated gutter system will be more prone to clogging and breaking, as the materials will have already been worn from years of usage. If this is the case, you may want to consider repairing the entire gutter, as that may be a longer-lasting solution. It may even save you more money in the long run, too! Having to constantly repair your gutters can cost a lot of money in the long run as well, and these costs can add up very quickly. It may be cheaper for you to replace the gutters than to keep paying small payments every year. If you start to see some sagging or bowing in your current gutters, it may be a sign that you have to replace the entire thing.
Good gutters will have a smooth surface on the inside which can reduce the friction, and that can prevent damage from occurring inside the gutters. A high-quality gutter system will also be coated to prevent the debris and ice from sticking to the surface and adding unnecessary weight, making them less susceptible to damage compared to a poor-quality one. Other causes of damage include mold, fungi, mildew, and algae, as all of these things can prevent the flow of water and cause bad odors and poor hygiene. The coating can prevent these things from forming, which can prevent damage on that front as well.
