Many modular home manufacturers prefer to install rain gutters in the modular home during the construction phase. If you are planning to build a new modular home, then modular home manufacturers will certainly advise you to install rain gutters in the housing structure.
Interestingly, many homeowners fail to realize the significance of rain gutters. Not only that, some even have a misconception that the primary purpose of installing rain gutters is to protect the side of their house. Yet in reality, the main purpose of using rain gutters is to protect the foundation of your modular home. This is done by channeling the water away from the foundation of your home.
If there are no rain gutters, then water that runs from your roof will dig a ditch along both sides of your home’s foundation. Some of the water may work its way through the foundation of your home and cause serious issues or damages to it.
If you are planning not to install rain gutters, then you will have to rely on the excavator. However, make sure to note the fact that this solution is not as efficient as installing rain gutters.
In addition to that, rain gutters will also protect the exterior of your modular housing structure from rot and back-splash stain. They will help you to considerably reduce ground erosion and rain gutters will also shield the landscaping of your home.
Furthermore, rain gutters will also shield the doors and windows of your modular home from water infiltration. Rain gutters are extremely useful during heavy storms because they efficiently prevent leaks around the threshold of your exterior doors. If there are no rain gutters, then the exterior doors of your modular homes will certainly be pounded with the rainwater from the sky and off the room.
Rain gutters are available to modular homebuilders in four different materials such as copper, aluminum, steel, and vinyl. If you are looking for a cheap gutter, then settle for vinyl. Vinyl rain gutters are lightweight and they can also be easily installed.
On the other hand, copper gutters are generally used for classic restorations and they are most expensive rain gutter available in the market. They are highly durable, incredibly attractive and they never rust. In addition to that, copper gutters do not need any painting jobs.
