An overview of gutter repairs

 

One of the most overlooked areas in any home is Guttering maintenance. If you are skipping this crucial part in your home maintenance routine, you may have to face some serious consequences shortly.  There is actually a long list of problems that can occur with the gutters in your home. Normally, all these problems, such as leaking Guttering, starts when you keep on postponing regular cleaning and maintenance services until it becomes too late. If you don’t have any idea when you last checked the Guttering round your house, then they may already be clogged up to a certain extent. The guttering and downpipes are there to direct rain water away off your roof and down into the drains to stop any of the water soaking into your walls and causing damp inside. If you suspect your guttering is leaking it would be wise to contact a professional Leaking Guttering and Replacement Guttering service to prevent any further damage, and to control the situation when it’s still in your hands.


 

In addition to the regular maintenance, you should also be aware of certain signs and indications to prevent serious catastrophes. Old cast iron guttering for example is extremely heavy and can cause serious injury or damage if it collapses. For instance, in winter months, you may have seen a lot of snow piling up inside your gutters. The weight of this snow can even damage the toughest gutters in the world. Though the damage would not be visible in the beginning, it can gradually lead to leaking Guttering. In this situation, water from the gutters starts seeping down the walls and or starts to rot timber fascia and soffit boards them. This can prove to be quite a costly repair in the long run.

 

Therefore, it’s essential to include basic Guttering services in your maintenance routine. This will help you to make sure that all gutters are working smoothly in your home, and it can also catch problems before they become life threatening hazards.

      I wish we’d known about you this time last year when the cold winter caused us so many problems with our roofing and guttering – come rainy March, we had so many leaks! Absolute cowboys we ended up with, although I’ve got your details now after you did some lovely work for a friend of ours! We definitely keep a wary eye on these things ever since!

      I’m a new home owner and to be honest I had no idea that the gutter even needed maintenance. I thought rain water should wash off whatever dirty things are on it or inside it and I shouldn’t need to lift a finger until maybe it needs a new coat of paint or something. I’ll have my husband clean the gutter this weekend and make sure we don’t damage it any further. A regular maintenance could prevent all the problems, but this ignorance of mine could end up costing me thousands.
