Give the guttering on your property some help!

Weather is the enemy in so many ways. Even when there are bright, clear skies and sunshine, the guttering on our home can take the brunt of the weather.

We are all aware that guttering is about channelling the rainwater away from out properties but, until it happens, we are not aware of what a nuisance broken guttering can be on an Airdrie home.

Guttering Airdrie

How guttering can break

The weather plays a large part in how guttering can break or split, along with the type of material and age of the house and its gutters.

Weather – everything from wind to rain, bright sunshine to freezing temperatures can place a part in how well the guttering on your property functions. Some guttering materials such as plastic and metal, expand and contract as the temperature changes.

As it does so, over time certain key points, such as the junctions between the gutters and down pipes can weaken. Eventually, water will begin to seep and leak from a crack causing a downpour down the exterior wall of a property.
Materials – modern day guttering tends to be made from plastic, a relatively inexpensive material that is light, yet sturdy. It is also easy to fit and mould into various shapes and sizes.

Some houses may still have their original metal guttering. If looked after and maintained well, this metal guttering system will last for many, many years. However, metal does corrode over time, even when it is looked after and painted on a regular basis.

Again, variations in temperature can also contribute to this, but wind can be the main enemy. As it moves and vibrates the

metal guttering, the points at which it is secured on to the wall and fascia boards can start to work loose.
There may also be occasions when rust stains are common on exterior walls too.

A vast or an affordable expense?

Looking after the guttering at your Airdrie home is not as arduous as you would think, and neither is it as expensive as you would think either.

However, even with maintenance, there are times when the guttering will crack, spoil and break and it is imperative that you have this repaired as soon as possible. A crack in one end of the guttering does not mean that the whole system needs replacing; smaller sections can be easily removed and replaced.

Does the guttering on your home need maintaining? Are there sections that are in need of repair? Why not give us a call?
