Gutters and downspouts do much more than collect and carry away rainwater. Gutters can lengthen the life of your roof by keeping standing water from collecting (which can lead to mold and rot). Downspouts protect your home’s foundation by ensuring that water collected from the gutters is directed well away from the base of the house. Standing water near your foundation can lead to cracks and even basement flooding.
If you have an attic you need some form of ventilation. Box vents work well on shingled, low-pitch roofs, but can be fitted to any roof with proper installation. While boxes are efficient at ventilating attics at a lower cost than other options, they may not have the same curb appeal. The team at Three Rivers Roofing & Waterproofing can help you determine if box vents are right for you.
