The guttering on any Lenzie property does an important job and one that, unless it does it time and time again, can cause problems for the exterior and interior a property.

Patios Motherwell

Guttering is important on all buildings

Many people assume that because they cannot see the traditional, ‘normal’ type of guttering on a property that it has none and, therefore, guttering is superfluous to requirements.

It may be that the office block or sky scraper does not have a traditional guttering system as you would imagine but, every designer and engineer knows that having a system to channel away rainwater from a building is needed.

The erosive nature and power of water

Water is erosive but not in the same way as a caustic chemical. Over time, it will soften and ‘rub away’ edges, causing dips and so on in various material. Likewise, some materials if exposed to water for long periods of time will become saturated. This is not a good for the material.

On drying out, it can crack; in winter, with sub-zero temperatures causing water to freeze, the defrosting action causing the ice to swell, causing problems deep within a material.

Channelling rainwater away from the exterior of a building is the sole and main purpose of guttering on a Lenzie home.

Keeping your home ‘dry’

There are many components that make up the exterior of your property ‘dry’; what this means, is that as soon as inclement weather hits, it is funnelled away from these exterior components. Resting water on a property is not welcome!

But, problems can arise with guttering…

  • Blockages – leaves, seeds and other detritus carried on the wind or dropped by birds can accumulate in guttering, impeding the smooth and efficient flow of rainwater away from the property
  • Incorrectly fitted – guttering on your Lenzie home should be fixed at a slight angle, towards to down pipes so that the water can run off quickly. Although many people think replacing or repairing guttering is a DIY job, if the initial problem is not corrected, it will keep on happening. Pooling water is heavy…
  • Sagging, breaks or missing parts – water that pools or accumulates in the guttering increases weight in the channels which can causing sagging. Sometimes, this weight also causes the guttering to break and leak; this leads to rainwater running down exterior walls. Eventually, if left unchecked this can lead to damp within a property.

The good news is that the guttering at your Lenzie home can be maintained and repaired relatively inexpensively; why not call us to find out more?
