How to Easily Protect Your New Construction Home

from Property Damage
Did you know that many new construction homes do not include gutters? If you are considering having the home of your dreams built, make sure you read the contract and build plans carefully as you go through the custom-building process. Then, ask the builder if gutters are included. Many times, they are not. It often depends on several factors, such as the building code for the area, the foundation, the type of home, the style of roof, and even the local weather.

Here in Minnesota, it rains and snows a good portion of the year. For example, if you are building in Wayzata, it rains 31 inches a year on average with 51 inches of snow. If you are going to build in Minnetonka, the average annual rainfall is 32 inches with 53 inches of snow. So, managing water and drainage around your home will be important for your new construction.
Protecting Your Home with Gutters

Having a custom home built is usually one of the most significant purchases in one's lifetime. It's an investment that can be a family asset for generations. Therefore, you'll want to make sure that when planning everything from the interior paint colors to the exterior landscape, you also plan to manage water and runoff with a reliable gutter system.

A high-quality gutter system will protect and add value to your property. These days, seamless gutters, copper gutters, stainless steel gutters, and many other styles are available that will also blend beautifully with your new home.

Preventing Water Damage

Whether you are spending $200,000 or $2,000,000, you will want to prevent water damage to the house and landscape.

Quality, durable gutters can help protect your new home from:

Basement flooding
Basement leaks
Fascia board damage
Foundation damage
Roof rot
Surface erosion and yard flooding
Water damage to structure and landscape
Wood damage

After all the time, effort, and building costs involved in making your new home a reality, the last thing you want are problems down the road during heavy rains or a Minnesota snowstorm.

And while professional gutter systems are an additional expense you may not have planned for, the cost of gutter installation can be affordable, with many styles and options available to fit your budget. And, looking into the future, they are an investment that will protect your property from damage and the hassles of repair, restoration, or replacement.
