Gutter Cleaning

Gutter clearance and cleaning for some properties can be a very occasional occurence however with the recent increase in moss growth and other vegetation in the uk over the last few years it has become more prevelant and a neccessary maintenance cost.

 

Gutters should at the very least be checked annually however for most people unfortunately guttering is "out of sight, out of mind"

 

The Roof and Guttering system is an integral and neccessary part of a property that is designed to direct water away from walls and foundations.

 

Problems caused by blocked guttering:

  • Overflowing gutters and brokens tiles cause damp inside the property

 

  • Leaking gutters are the most common cause of isolated damp in properties throught the UK.

 

  • Structural damage to building walls or foundations.

 

  • Flooding

 

  • Unsightly

 

Main causes of Blocked, Overflowing or Broken Guttering

 

  • Blockages are usually caused by excess growth of moss falling and settling in the gutter or inadequate guttering aids deployed to prevent larger items from entering the downpipe. (see Hedgehog/Downpipe)

 

  • Overflowing gutters can be cause by blockages as above or this could be due to poor alignment of the flow channel.

 

  • Guttering whether it's UPVC or not has a shelf life like everything else attached to a property. The first point of failure is usually the rubber seal inside joint connectors. If you notice limescale or discolouring around this area it is time to inspect more closely.

 

  • Guttering can be broken by workman resting ladders against them a falling tile or other objects may crack or dislodge.
