Time and Volume: Both Matter
A little bit of water can do a lot of damage, especially if given time. What counts as “a lot” of time depends on what is being damaged. Water destroys paper almost immediately. Water may need hours to disintegrate plaster, delaminate vinyl, or rot wood, depending on the specifics of the materials and the amount of water.
Given enough time, water can erode stone or metal. The Grand Canyon is magnificent evidence of the power of water over time.
A burst pipe, shower overflow, or waterlogged roof can unleash a large volume water that does a massive amount of water damage in a short amount of time.

Gutters, Gargoyles, & Grotesques
Gutters were originally built to channel water from building roofs to:
- Prevent water from weighing down the roof (no one wants a roof collapse)
- Channel water away from the building to protect the walls from water damage
- Divert water from the building’s foundation
Homes in low-rain areas may still have gutters to trap leaves or other kinds of debris, reducing the risk of fire damage.
No matter where you live, it’s a good idea to keep the gutters clean.
Sometime in the 13th Century, European architects figured out a nifty way to build gutters that protected churches and castles while looking completely awesome.
They created creatures that leaned from the roofs and siphoned water away from the walls. The gargoyles became so popular that artists and architects started including them where they weren’t needed.
The non-gutter gargoyles were – and are – technically called “grotesques”, but we aren’t going to complain if you call them all “gargoyles”.
Gargoyles and grotesques became popular again in the 18th century, and they haven’t gone out of fashion.
