Gutter Cleaning & Repairs
Gutters are essential for your home, especially when heavy rain arrives. When rainwater flows down the slope of your roof, it goes directly to your gutters. They are then responsible for sending the water down the drain. That means that water is kept away from your walls, where it could seep in and cause damage. Roof damage is also prevented.
Why Do You Need Gutter Cleaning & Repairs?
To keep the outside drainage system of your home working, it is vital to clear your gutters. If your gutters become blocked, rainwater can overflow, run down the walls of your house, and potentially cause damage to surfaces below.
This is when you can encounter problems. Water can seep into your home through wall cavities and gaps in brickwork, which could cause dampness and mould.
This can damage your home’s structure. If it is not stopped early on, it will cost a lot of money to repair. It’s also worth knowing that your home insurance may not cover you for damage caused by dampness and condensation. That can make repairs even more expensive!
To prolong the life of your gutter, it is advised that you have it cleaned at least once a year.
