Gutter Cleaning & Maintenance
Gutters on your property can on many occasions be considered as non important items – simply, just a plastic trim around your property – but is this true? Gutters on your property serve a very important role in servicing your home. Poorly maintained gutters will not only spoil the look of your home, but can lead onto structural damage and expensive repairs. Why is this the case? Blocked gutters will prevent the rain that falls on your roof from properly draining away into your storm drains. If your gutters are blocked – they will ultimately overflow with rain water down the face of your brickwork or external rendering of your home. Blocked gutters left unattended –will ultimately stain the exterior walls of your property with unsightly marks. If left for a long period – the water trapped in the texture of your brick facing or render will freeze in winter time, expand and blow the brick facing or render away – causing much bigger problems. Damp will then penetrate the wall, causing mould to grow onto your interior walls and will require special treatments before redecoration can take place. All because of blocked gutters and poor gutter maintenance. But why do your roof gutters get blocked in the first place?
Why Do Gutters get Blocked?
The roof of your property has many textured surfaces. This catches the dust in the air, along with leaves in autumn time. When it rains, this carries all of the dust, dirt and leaves down into the perimeter gutters of your property. Overtime, twigs, leaves and dirt sticks to the sides of the gutter. Algae can grow and this can end up staining your gutters, UPVC facias and soffits. Gradually blockages occur and then the gutter blocks and fills up with all of this roof debris. Before too long – the water has nowhere else to go but overflowing over the edges of the gutters, facias and soffits, down the walls of your property.
Roofs due to their nature collect dust and dirt from the air. This is washed down into the gutters when it rains
High winds, especially in Autumn cause leaves and twigs to land on the rrof tiles. When it rains these are washed down into the roof gutters. When saturated and wet, leaves can start to rot and become sticky, clinging to the roof gutter surfaces.
Anywhere where there is damp and wet – moss forms and algae can grow. This takes root in the build up of dirt and debris and roots form alowing the moss to grow and become a permanent fixture in the gutter area. This can block the roof water drainage and cause much bigger damp problems with your property walls and brickwork.
Roof Gutter Repairs - Essential Maintenance
Before Gutter Cleaning Commences
Maintaining and keeping your gutters clean and clear of blockages is vital to roof storm water drainage. This will prevent any water damage to brickwork, rendering or damp in you property.
All gutters are fitted to the perimeter of your roof with a gradual incline in the direction to the down spout. This is the pipe that collects all of the roof water from the gutters and directs it all into the storm drains of your property. Sometimes brackets to the roof gutters can break and snap, jointing strips can come unfixed and gutter end caps can fall off – causing issues and problems to the roof water drainage system. These problems need repairing to ensure correct water drainage from your roof.
