Gutter Repair and Cleaning

Our gutter maintenance provides protection against blocked gutters, leaking gutters, overflowing gutters and blocked downpipes. The consequences of not keeping your roof gutters properly maintained are:
1. Damage to the house structure

Leaving aside immediate damage that may be caused by a torrential downpour, the damage caused by water is not immediately apparent. When it becomes so it is often too late, damage is advanced and rectification can be expensive leading to damp proofing.

2. External damage
  • Water running continually down the sides of a house slowly erodes the surface structure; rendered             surfaces as well as brickwork
  • The resulting saturated external surfaces expose the structure to increased damage from frost and ice
  • Water run off from the walls saturates the ground in the immediate vicinity of footings and foundation       structures
  • Poorly maintained gutters are themselves vulnerable to damage due to distortion from the weight of         retained water
  • Damage to retaining clips
  • Damage to the gutter anchoring systems
  • Damage to the building structure at the anchor points
  • Complete failure and collapse of the gutter itself
3. Internal damage

Internal damage is a more gradual and a largely hidden consequence of poorly maintained gutters, yet can have drastic consequences:

  • Overflowing gutters allow water past fascia boards and into the internal roof area. Rarely visible to           general observation this leakage threatens slowly but far reaching damage to the integrity of the roof       structure with seepage into roof timbers
  • Seepage or even direct flooding onto internal surfaces and into cavity spaces
  • Development of mould and other fungal growths on internal surfaces and decorated surfaces
  • Pockets of damp favouring the spread of insect populations
  • In conjunction with external damage to footings the development of rising damp
