Roofline Glasgow provide a gutter replacement service to the East End of Glasgow.

Why is the guttering on your East End of Glasgow important?

In all honesty, guttering is the unsung hero of keeping the home in a good state of repair, looking good, as well as being dry and free from damp.

And yet, in spite of it being so important, many homeowners take very little notice of the guttering on their property – until it fails to do the job that they think it should be doing!

What is the purpose of guttering on a property?

Rain. It happens sometimes without warning and when there is a downpour, there can be many litres of water cascading down the roof. All this water needs to go somewhere, whether it is into the sewers, the ground or into water troughs or harvesters.

But it needs to be funnelled and channelled from the roof in a controlled way. It needs to be done in a way that is efficient too. In other words, you need the weight of the accumulating rain removing from the roof as quickly as possible.

But, you also don’t want this rain, and its erosive properties, hanging around for long on or close to your home either.
It is the job of the guttering on your East End of Glasgow that makes this happen – rainwater is quickly removed from your property but in a controlled way.

It can go wrong

It works for decades without any issues whatsoever. In fact, many older properties may still have their original guttering fitted and working with no problems at all.

But, the forces of rain, wind, snow, ice and sun are a powerful combination and over time the metal or plastic guttering on a property will start to fail.

It can be anything from a crack or split in the gutter, to the clamps that hold is to the exterior wall coming loose.
Some issues can be ‘man-made’ too. People assume that replacing guttering is easy which it can be – providing you know how. And this is where DIYers can come a little unstuck. It may look like it is fixed straight but there is an angle to guttering on a property.

But, too much of an incline – and worse still, in the wrong direction – can mean the gallons of rainwater spills over, all in the wrong place too. Likewise, not enough of an incline means that the water pools. And water is heavy thus, the guttering sags.

Easy to maintain, easy to repair, easy to replace…
