When it Rains in Iowa, it DOWNPOURS!!!
Living in Iowa, we receive about 33 inches of rain each year which is just above the national average of 32 inches. And, when it does rain, it can come down sideways and deliver large hail with it! Additionally, there are considerable amounts of snow we receive in the winter, sometimes up to 2 feet in a single storm. You need a safe and reliable gutter system installed by a reputable Ankeny roofing contractor to defend your roof as well as the rest of your home.
Just one single inch of rain for every thousand square feet of your roof will generate over 600 gallons of water for your gutters to divert away from your home. That is a serious amount of water. When a blockage happens, things can get critical, and really FAST! When you analyze the damage that kind of amount of water can do to your home each year, it is obvious why your house needs a solid gutter system.
