New rain gutters and downspouts

Do I need gutters if I have a slab foundation?

You may think that having a slab foundation in your home rather than a foundation with a crawlspace or basement absolves you from installing gutters since there is no basement to keep dry! Gutters prevent the pooling of water, which can wear your concrete slab. If you already have cracks forming on your slab foundation due to heaving, tree roots, and expansion and contraction, water can easily enter your home if you do not have gutters. Gutters can protect from further concrete wear and protect against moisture buildup, which can compromise the integrity of your structure.
