Do Gutters Improve Your Property Value?

Gutters are one of those home features that homeowners often don’t think much about until they stop working correctly. But when they get clogged or break and water starts to damage your roof, siding, foundation, or landscaping, you really start to notice how important good and well-functioning gutters are to your property.

But does this mean that gutters can increase your property value? Can they be a reason why you may get more for your home, or not, should you decide to put it on the market? Read on to find out how gutters influence property value.

The Value of Working Gutters

Installing gutters.
Will new gutters help you sell your home?

Homebuyers think about gutters in much the same way that homeowners do: if the gutters on a property are in good repair and working properly, that’s as it should be, so they’re typically not thought of as something of high or additional value.

However, if the gutters aren’t working as they should, or if they’re sagging, damaged, or broken, it’s likely that the buyer will pay less for the house than they would if the gutters were in good condition. Clogged or broken gutters can cause water damage to the roof and siding on the house, foundation erosion, and other problems.

In order to get the asking price your house deserves, you’ll probably need to fix any gutters that are damaged or leaking. Otherwise, you may well find yourself knocking money off of your asking price in order to sell.

In summary, standard gutters that are in good repair don’t really add anything to your property value, but if your gutters are not in good repair, they can decrease your property value.

Upgrading your gutter system may increase your property value.

Gutters That Do Add Value

While that’s true, it’s a mistake to think that gutters can never add value to your home. While the most basic gutter systems are what most homebuyers expect and are not necessarily a selling point, you can add additional value to your property with an enhanced gutter system—adding elements that will help your gutters function better and last longer.

For example, a gutter heating system helps to prevent ice dams from forming, which can occur when rainwater freezes in the gutters in low temperatures. This addition to your gutter system may add value to your property because it cuts down on potential expenses and repairs for buyers later on.

Gutter covers can also increase your property value. Gutter covers help prevent gutters from getting clogged with leaves and debris—clogs which can cause icicles to form and further damage your gutters. For buyers, this addition not only means that they’ll have a more functional gutter system, but it also means that they’ll have less maintenance work to do themselves—they won’t need to worry about unclogging the gutter system regularly.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
