Gutters are a fundamental structure to your home or business outskirts. They serve a great purpose for protecting your roof, walls, foundations and keeping water from building up around the areas of the front and backyard.
When your home is situated in an area surrounded by many trees it should be a set agenda on the gardening to do list to ensure that your gutters are kept clear.
If getting up on your Rooftop is something that doesn’t really appeal to you, contacting a professional who has the equipment and will work within the safety guidelines can be a much easier option. They will also be able to evaluate the gutters conditioning and inform you of any repairs or future upkeep that might need to be done.
Are your Gutters in need of Maintenance?
- Gutters Overflowing
- Sagging in areas
- Mould or Mildew on foundations
- Heavy Storm
Usually when we have heavy rain our gutters can overflow, although if there is a blockage you will see an overflow of water coming from part of the guttering. If left unmaintained this can cause sagging to happen.
Sagging in Areas
When there is a build up of water the only place for the water to escape is over the sides, this can cause a weakness in the gutter itself which then it may need to be replaced.
Mould or Mildew on Foundations
If gutters are blocked from leaves and debris, when the rains come, this becomes a soggy wet mess and is a perfect breeding ground for mould and mildew to start building.
Heavy Storms can bring broken branches onto the roof surface with twigs, leaves and bits of debris it has blown in its path. It is a good idea to get the roof and gutters checked to make sure no damage has been done.
