Nearly 70% of South Florida homes have a limited amount of gutter or no
gutter at all. At least 85% of the homes that do have gutter were installed

Heavy rain cascading off a roof leaves a valley in the soil.
Water does not merely sink into the ground. Water travels to the lowest
point taking with it particles of soil. Take a few moments and walk
around your home. Notice the indentation in the ground? Soil
erosion causes your foundation to shift leading to premature settlement
cracks. Settlement cracks are first noticeable next

cracks may be noticeable approximately one foot from the ground going

Gutters installed over an air conditioner unit will extend the life of
the unit by up to 30%. If you have no gutter over your air conditioner,
you will lose up to 30% of the life of the unit.
Settlement cracks in your foundation lead to insects penetrating your
home through those cracks. The most common insect are sugar ants.
photos below depict years of heavy rain cascading off a roof that washed
away the soil that led to soil erosion followed by settlement cracking
in the foundation. Heavy rain also washed away the
soil beneath the concrete slab holding the AC unit. Eventually the concrete
slab will crack and or break into pieces which could damage the air conditioner
unit. This too could be costly to repair.
