When it comes to the day-to-day of running your business, with your mind filled with sales reports, quarterly revenue projections, and brand extension strategies, there are lots of things that you may not think about. You probably don’t think about the colors of your building. You probably don’t think about the length of your lawn. You probably don’t think about your property’s tree-to-acreage ratio. And you definitely don’t think about your gutters.
They may sit quietly on your roofline, diligently directing stormwater away from your building but believe it or not, your commercial gutters are important to the success of your business.
They Add Curb Appeal
Curb appeal isn’t just for people who are looking to sell a house. Curb appeal for commercial properties makes a business more inviting to potential customers and clients. Lots of greenery, flowers, and a well-manicured lawn certainly make your business more attractive but a property that’s been taken care of brings people in too. Paint that looks fresh, clean walkways, and structural features that have been well-maintained including your gutters are a good reflection on your business. It shows that every detail of your business is important to you. Gutters that look old, worn and saggy are a poor reflection on the business.
They Prevent Expensive Water Damage
Without gutters, or with gutters that are clogged or damaged, water can get into the siding, leak through doors, windows, or anywhere that there may be a crack, and when water gets in, repairs become expensive. A leaky roof can cause internal damage and if not caught right away can lead to a mold problem that can cause allergic reactions and greatly degrade the air quality in your building.
Excess water on the building’s exterior can cause deterioration or damage to the foundation, walkways, and landscaping. Along with expensive repairs, you could face fines for violating stormwater runoff regulations. Repairs and fines will definitely eat into your bottom line, especially if there is structural damage or electrical damage that causes you to shut down for repairs or if mold mitigation is necessary or it has caused unsanitary conditions.
