Gutter Works, Maintenance & Information
Most of us don’t spend much time thinking about the gutters of our home. They tend to be one of those things that you don’t really notice until something goes wrong. Or when you gutter gets blocked…
The problem with this approach is that you can end up with a very big repair bill when simple and regular maintenance could have prevented the repair in the first place.
Why is gutter maintenance so important?
Gutters are one of the most important features of a home. They protect your house from flooding and water damage, they keep your homes foundations strong and crack-resistant and they prevent walls, windows and other exterior framework from the ravages of time and weather.
The way gutters work is simple. They funnel water off your roof and away from your home so that the ground immediately beneath your roof stays dry and firm.
Why is regular gutter works needed?
The very structure of your house is dependent on the condition of your gutters. Poorly maintained gutters that are clogged, leaking or broken can cause serious structural damage if left unattended.
In winter, rain can collect into pools along your gutters, creating the perfect breeding ground for mould and fungus while also allowing gutters to rust and rot away.
In autumn, leaves can quickly pile up, blocking gutters and preventing them from functioning properly.
Over time, gutters can also pull away from their mountings, becoming dangerously loose and unable to fulfill their role of deflecting water away from your home.
Regular gutter maintenance pays off
It’s important to keep your homes gutters clear and uncongested, free from leaves, sticks and other debris that can cause long term damage if ignored.
Ideally, your gutters should be cleaned twice a year, in autumn as leaves are falling and again in spring after the winter rains.
Gutter guards are also a really great idea. These plastic or metal wire meshes are installed over your gutters, effectively preventing leaves and debris from cluttering the gutters. If your area has trees near your roof, gutter guards could be an excellent precautionary measure against blocked gutters.
