Moisture, in all its physical forms, is commonly regarded as the single greatest threat to the durability and long-term performance of residential homes. Over time, excessive exposure to moisture can cause significant damage to many types of building components and materials, namely corrosion, insect habitation and wood rot.
By controlling exposure to moisture, many other durability problems such as mold and indoor air quality, which can lead to unhealthy indoor living environments, can also be solved. There is wide agreement that successful management of moisture in its various form is essential for houses to be safe, durable, and energy efficient.
Foundation drainage is an important determinant of overall exposure to moisture. It is essential that rainwater and roof drainage be diverted away from the building perimeter to prevent leaks into basements or crawl spaces, or saturation of the ground around slab-on-grade construction.
leaf protection products
We carry several kinds of leaf protection products. But, even if you don’t have trees in your yard, we strongly recommend having leaf screens installed on your new rain gutters. Any object on your roof will eventually end up in your gutter and may clog the downspout. The last thing you need to be doing is trying to unclog a downspout in a rain storm. Adding leaf screen to your new rain gutters will assure you of year round protection from overflowing gutters and clogged downspouts.
