Maintaining guttering – the inexpensive way of keeping your home damp-free!

Maintaining the guttering on your property could solve a whole heap of problems in your home, that you may not have realised you had!

The idea of guttering is to channel or funnel away rainwater from the exterior facade of your property as quickly and as efficiently as possible. When this does not happen, for a variety of reasons, over time, rainwater can effectively penetrate the outer layer of your home and start to cause to problems inside. The sooner you deal with potential guttering problems of your home, the less expensive it will be.

Look out for these common problems:

Blocked gutters – easily done after the harsh weather of winter, preceded by the falling of autumn leaves. Fallen leaves, left in the guttering can soon mass together to form one big, impermeable lump that can take an age to degrade. Rainwater can then push this mass along the half pipes, effectively wedging it in the down pipes. Despite the weight of pooling rain, the mass will not move or will slowly be pushed down the pipe and in the event, will case water to overflow up and over the down pipe, washing down the exterior walls.

If this is allowed to continue, it can cause damp inside the home and damage foundations.

Sagging guttering – gutters are usually fixed at a slight slope to encourage rain water runoff down the attached down pipes. Failure to fix the guttering at a slope – as can be seen on some properties – will mean that rain water can pool. Over time, this will cause the guttering to sag – preventing it in the long term from allowing water to effectively run to the down pipe.

As well as being caused by incorrect fitting, sagging gutters can also be caused by an incorrect number of brackets being fitted – hence the too-few brackets cannot hold the weight of the gutter and water, eventually leading to its sagging.

Age! – corrosion and cracks on metal guttering is a sign of age! New-build Paisley properties are now built with plastic guttering but many older style properties still have the metal guttering and down pipes. With regular maintenance and painting, these pipes and guttering can withstand the harshest of weathers for many years. However, not all have been maintained to a high standard and many homeowners find that they inherit corroded guttering and downpipes. Replacement is the onlt option here.

Leaking joints – where the gutters and pipes fit together is an important inspection point as these joints can sometimes work loose or crack. It is possible to replace certain sections of guttering and guttering specialists Roofline Glasgow, local to Paisley and surrounding areas will be able to advise and re-fit various sections.

Guttering plays an important role within the roofline of your property.
