Rainfall rate is another factor to take into consideration when determining the size of your gutters. For Colorado Springs, the rainfall rate is not too bad, on average we usually receive about 20 inches of rain per season. The heavier the rainfall is in your area, maybe a factor and require wider gutters as well. Legacy Gutters takes all these factors into consider when determining the best sized gutters for your home or commercial building.
Improperly sized gutters can be detrimental to your roof in the long run. If rainwater does not have the proper run off capabilities it will create overflow and it will be as if you do not have any gutters at all. Overflow creates a waterfall effect, when you have no gutters, clogged gutters, or improperly sized gutters, you can create foundation damage and flood crawl spaces or basements causing thousands of dollars’ worth of damage overall to structure of your home or commercial building.
