Living here in this region of the high desert southwest there comes some advantages with our climate that homeowners would be wise to take advantage of and position their homes to harvest rain water in the monsoon months. As your local home inspection company here in Albuquerque we look to provide great value in the information we look to share.
Typically, in the summer months here in Albuquerque there is often a monsoonal flow of precipitation that we are blessed with that can deliver large amounts of rain quickly and in a duration of consecutive days. Being in position to be a prepared homeowner with a roof covering system that sheds water is ideal in most climates, however having a gutter and down spout collection system can really be beneficial in harvesting and storing rain water for later use.
At Home Inspector Albuquerque we can help by providing a thorough roof inspection that also includes the gutter and downspout system inspection to ensure the path for water drainage is diverted correctly and efficiently off the roof and into a cistern or rain catchment barrels.
There are many approaches to optimally shed water from the roof and collect or redirect the flow of rain water away from the house. Finding the right approach for your house may take a little research and strategizing to implement the most cost effective and efficient method to turn your roofing system into a water harvesting and catchment system. It is recommended that after installing the gutter system to take the extra step and install gutter guards within the gutters end-to-end to prevent debris such as leaves, twigs and pine needles from clogging and obstructing the flow of water with in the gutter system.
