We deal with gutter cleaning and repair jobs and to prevent gutter repairs occurring the gutters of your property should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis. Cleaning of gutters, will save you money over the longer term and should be done every year and if you think you won't get gutter problems – chances are you will so its best to prevent a higher cost by regular cleaning.
The gutters are open and designed to catch water but of course its not just rain water they catch, they also catch - leaves from trees, bird deposits, moss and other growths and debris from the roof. This debris if enough of it accumulates, can soon get into the gutter and block it.
You will frequently look at a gutter and see vegetation growing out of it and this vegetation, will eventually spread and cause problems. If you see water spilling over the side of the guttering during heavy rain, the reason is probably because of a build-up of rubbish or vegetation which is obstructing the flow of water. Because of this blockage, it spills over the sides and can cause damp and water damage, if it enters the property.
Drainpipes are the route the water takes from the guttering to the drain. Cast-iron drainpipes were the original pipes fitted to many older dwellings and they suffer from rust damage and in many instances should be replaced. To tell if you have a cast iron drainpipe is simple, if its painted its probably a cast iron gutter.
If you have cast iron guttering, you may want to consider a gutter upgrade to Plastic guttering. If you have cement gutters and drainpipes, you should also consider replacing these as well.
