Why Gutter Maintenance Matters in Tiverton and Newport

Living in coastal Rhode Island, particularly in areas like Tiverton and Newport, comes with its own set of challenges for homeowners. One often overlooked aspect of home maintenance is the care and upkeep of your gutters and downspouts. At Hart’s Roofing & Construction, we’ve seen firsthand the consequences of neglecting this crucial component of your home’s exterior.

The Unique Challenges of Coastal Living

Coastal regions like Tiverton and Newport face specific environmental factors that can accelerate gutter wear and tear:

  • Salt air corrosion
  • Higher humidity levels
  • Increased rainfall and storms
  • Abundant foliage and debris

These factors combine to create a perfect storm for gutter damage if left unchecked.

The Ripple Effect of Gutter Neglect

Ignoring your gutters can lead to a cascade of problems affecting various parts of your home:

1. Foundation damage
2. Basement flooding
3. Fascia and soffit rot
4. Landscape erosion
5. Roof leaks and damage
