Good water management. A well-designed, professionally installed gutter & downspout system provides protection against erosion, plant dama, e and basement flooding.
Gutters and downspouts are important for the health and well-being of your house. By directing roof runoff away from your foundation walls, this drainage system is your first line of defense against basement or crawl space flooding.
A well-functioning gutter and downspout system preserves your topsoil and protects exterior siding and trim from backsplash water that can damage paint and cause wood rot.
The experts at Scholar Painting can install quality gutters that will provide effective roof drainage year round!

If you're planning to replace old gutters and downspouts or install a new roof drainage system, one of your first decisions will be the material used for gutters and downspouts. Here are some details about the different choices of materials for gutters and downspouts.
Another decision you'll have to make concerns the profile or cross-section of your new gutters. Gutters installed in a "K" profile feature a curved front edge. The "K" or "Ogee" gutter profile is compatible with many house styles.
Gutter size is also an important decision. The size denotes the measurement across the top of the gutter. Most houses require either 5-inch or 6-inch gutters. The downspouts used in a gutter-and-downspout system can have a rectangular or circular profile.
If you're having gutters and downspouts installed, it makes sense to consider including gutter guards and splash blocks or ground drainage in your installation. Gutter guards or covers will help to prevent your gutters and downspouts from being clogged by leaves, twigs and other debris. Splash blocks and ground drains help to direct water from downspouts away from the house.
