Having gutters installed on your home in Texas, though not required by law, is still a good idea. That’s because water from rain or snow that is allowed to flow over your roof onto the ground surrounding your home can damage your foundation, which can be a costly repair. A gutter system, however, will safely channel all that water away from your home and the foundation, greatly reducing the risk of damage.
However, not all gutter systems are made alike. The old adage, “you get what you pay for,” certainly applies to gutters. For instance, wood and vinyl gutters are on the lower end of the cost spectrum, but these materials don’t age well and you may find yourself having to replace your gutters again in less time than you had anticipated. For optimum performance, look for gutters made from a more sturdy material, such as aluminum, that is strong enough to hold the weight of water and withstand years of abuse from Mother Nature.
If you’re shopping for gutters for your home in Texas you should also look for built-in features, not optional add-ons, that prevent the gutters from becoming clogged. The problem with add-ons is that seams are created where the two parts meet. Seams provide opportunities for water to leak out or for dirt to accumulate and cause a clog. Built-in clog-prevention features will provide your gutters with the best chance of continued performance.
