Metal roofing offers homeowners innovative, energy-saving protection for half a century. Metal roofing materials withstand everything from extreme cold and heat to high winds and hail. In fact, a metal roof outlasts traditional roofing every time with minimal maintenance and replacement. With so much durability, does your metal roof need gutters? Let’s find out.
Why Do You Need a Gutter?
Traditional asphalt roofing cracks, allowing harmful moisture to damage the roof and home. Metal roofing materials have a durability and strength unlike asphalt. When a professional installs a metal roof, they ensure that you have airtight, waterproof protection for your home. Can your metal roof survive without a gutter? Yes and no.
Your metal roof withstands a wide variety of problems like termite damage, moisture, and fire. However, other components like your home’s foundation, the siding, garden, or walkway might be at risk of damage from snow, sleet, hail, or rain. You might have a basement flooded or rain can sneak its way into your foundation.
Protecting Your Home’s Siding
Your metal roof does not allow any water to enter your home. However, you do need to protect your home’s siding. If you do not have gutters, the water might cause serious structural problems. Additionally, the water from the roof can deluge landscaping. You don’t want flooding and water damage to cause massive foundation issues, either.
