Controlling rain water extends far beyond mere necessity. Uncontrolled rainwater can lead to devastating floods, soil erosion, and water pollution. When it comes to your particular home, controlling the flow of rainwater can protect your own property from flooding, puddling, landscape damage, and pests.
As a local North Houston gutter and roofing company, we at No Mess Gutters and Roofing have experience with the unique coastal Texas weather. We experience rain quite a bit especially in summer here in our area, with the occasional tropical storm or hurricane thrown in! We can enjoy sunny mornings but by evening, every Houstonian knows here come the showers and thunderstorms.
Benefits of Controlling RainWater
Gutters are essentially rain control systems directing water away from your home, preventing water damage to your roof, walls, and foundation.
Prevents Flooding and Puddling
Without a proper rain control system, rainwater can accumulate near your home’s foundation and seep into your basement, leading to structural damage and costly repairs. With a properly designed gutter system, you can prevent excess runoff from causing flooding and subsequent puddling in your property. Flooding can damage driveways, pathways, plants and other landscaping.
When rainwater flows over the land, it can erode the soil and carry away nutrients and sediments. Soil erosion can lead to increased pollution and sedimentation in streams and rivers, clogging these waterways, affecting local ecosystems. Also once the soil has degraded, it is often less able to hold onto water, which can worsen flooding. Controlling rainwater can reduce the amount of erosion and preserve the soil structure and fertility. Avoiding erosion saves you money on costly lawn and landscaping repairs.
Rainwater puddling in unwanted areas can encourage the growth of bugs such as mosquitoes. Stagnant water is a breeding ground for pests like:
- Dragonfly nymphs.
- Fly maggots.
- Mosquito larvae.
- Nepidae (water scorpions)
It can even attract larger animals, such as raccoon, opossum, or rats, looking for a drink of water.
Protects Your Property
Water seepage and leaks can cause damage to your structures integrity. Without a properly directing rainwater away from your home, it can accumulate near your home’s foundation and over time, seep into your basement, leading to structural damage and costly repairs. Rainwater cascading down your roof can also damage your landscaping, windows, and doors.
