Rainwater – the great escape

Guttering at Hamilton properties channels away rainwater that collects and cascades off the roof in time of light and heavy rain. According to building inspectors and surveyors the vast majority of issues with a property – both internally and externally – are to do with one thing: rainwater.

As soon as Guttering at your Hamilton property becomes broken or clogged, the trouble starts; with maintenance and immediate repair, expensive issues can be avoided!

The roof

Rainwater of course, hits the roof and should, with ease, makes it way to the guttering on a Hamilton property and be channelled away.

On occasion, however, the source of the problem lay with the roof; a badly maintained roof, with cracked or missing slates, missing shingle, damaged flashing etc. can all lead to rainwater seeping on to the interior of the property.

The foundations

The foundation of a property is the very thing that gives the structure its strength; weakened or compromised foundation can mean only one thing – expensive repairs!

But what does guttering on a Hamilton property have to do with its foundations? A lot more than you realise…

 A guttering system on a Hamilton property – and any property, in fact – is designed to do one thing: form a channel so that rainwater can be siphoned away from the property quickly and effectively.

When this does not happen, rainwater ends up falling close to the property; this can create an unsightly mess for one thing, but the power of rain water lies in it being incredibly erosive. And so, the foundation of a property start to become sodden and this results in something called heave. It can also result in a property subsiding, that is moving on its foundation. This can be repaired with underpinning, but this is expensive and something that can be avoided in some cases…

Keep an eye on the guttering of your Hamilton property

Guttering systems are relatively easy to maintain and repair but many people are unable to complete this job themselves. This is because for many people, the thought of going up a ladder and being able to complete a repair is too much!
