Have you thought about increasing the value of your home? Maybe you’re planning to sell your home soon, or maybe you want to spruce things up for yourself. Whatever the reason, one of the best ways to increase the value of your home probably isn’t what you expect: your house gutters. It’s easy to prioritize room remodels or landscape projects, but one of the greatest assets to your home is a well-maintained gutter system.
Your gutters greatly increase your home’s curb appeal. Homebuyers are searching for homes with properly functioning gutters. If you’re in the market to sell your home, know that new gutters will add value. Even a gutter protection system can help attract prospective buyers. But gutters aren’t just a cosmetic feature, they are a practical component that will keep your home protected from flood and water damage.
Extend Your Roof’s Lifespan
Clogged gutters can create problems for your home. If your gutters are blocked by sticks, leaves, or debris, the water will sit on your roof’s underlayment and can cause your gutters to overflow. Over time, this can create erosion, mold, and roof rot, and require expensive repairs. A clogged gutter can also flood your basement or crawlspace, which can diminish the integrity of your home’s foundation. New or updated gutters will improve the durability of your home, thus increasing its worth.
Keep It Up-to-Date
While cleaning your gutters is an essential part of your home’s maintenance, it is also important to update your gutters with the best new products. This simple act will protect the lifespan of your roof by keeping the underlayment dry. Many gutter systems are outdated, and new gutter technology will save you time and energy on home maintenance. Gutter protection systems mean you no longer need to regularly clean out your gutters. An up-to-date gutter system will give your home added value.
