Benefits of adding gutters to your home.


  • MOISTURE CONTROL – Keep garages dry and free of conditions that support mold and wood fungi growth by controlling roof drainage.
  • FOUNDATION PROTECTION – Limit the movement of active zone soils underneath the foundation by reducing the amount of water that enters at the foundation wall.
  • PROTECT BACK-FILL – Top soil around the foundation is the weakest link in foundation moisture control. Preventing topsoil erosion can help prevent future structural damage.
  • SHIELD WINDOWS AND DOORS – Most durability issues arise from bulk water intrusion through windows and doors. Roof drainage will direct water away from sensitive areas.
  • PROTECT PLANTS AND SHRUBS – Standing water in flower beds around the home can permit harmful plant fungi to develop as well as attract ants, roaches, and termites.
  • PROTECT FASCIA – Water migration may cause rotting and insects that can be costly to repair. Quickly moving water away from rafter and roof joints is essential to a home’s long term durability.
  • INCREASE ROOF OVERHANG – Rain gutters can add up to 6” of protective roof overhang, providing additional shielding of windows and doors, improving drying times and moisture levels.
  • PREVENT SPLASH BACK – Rain gutters keep siding and masonry looking new by preventing splash back of dirt, grass, and minerals that stain the exterior and can be difficult to remove over time.
  • DECORATIVE DETAIL – Rain gutters are not just functional but can accentuate the architecture of any home.

This Palm Coast home shown below you can see rain damage from not having gutters. No grass or shrubs will grow and water accumulates near the home and foundation. Since Flo-Rite Seamless Gutters installed a gutter system on this home the reverse effects are almost immediate. No more standing water and mud next to the foundation.
