What's the purpose of Gutters?
Some form of Rain Gutter has been around since 3000 – 1500BC. There is evidence that the Harrappan Civilization used a form of rain gutter to keep water from ruining their homes. We see gutters take on many different names throughout history, such as the use of gargoyles. Almost as long as we have had roofs over our heads and rain from the sky, we have acknowledged the need to funnel water from our roofs to prevent damage to our homes and foundation.
Benefits of proper gutter installations:
- Prevents erosion of the soil around your home
- Helps to keep your foundation solid
- Prevents mold from developing on the outside of your home
- Aids in keeping your crawl space and basement dry and mold free
- Creates great “curb appeal” to your home!
Where do I begin?
In Georgia, it rains. It rains in Spring, in Fall, and most of the time, it rains (instead of snows) in the Winter!

Today, it is common for new homes to be installed with gutters. Many even know the endless benefits of having gutters. What you may not know is why Gutter Covers are necessary. Duckworth Gutters can help to clear it up a bit.
What are Gutter Covers?
Gutter Covers are an addition to your gutter system that provide a defense against debris from clogging the gutters. If you take a peak in you gutters, you may see things such as pine needles, leaves, dirt and mud, mosquito larvae, squirrels and sometimes, even snakes!
What are the benefits to Gutter Covers?
The common recommendation is to clean your gutters at least three times a year; once in the spring and twice in the fall. If you have trees over your home, it is recommended to clean them as much as every three months to avoid clogs.
