Guttering on your property – deceptively simple but incredibly important

The likelihood is, you hardly give the guttering on your Stirling property a second glance. Until, that is, there is an annoying drip or, worse still, a cascade of cold rainwater dropping onto your head every time it rains.

The chances are, you don’t know much about the deceptively simple guttering system on your property but there are a few essential facts you need to know…

#1 Maintaining the guttering on your Stirling property prevents damage to the inside of your property

The gutters are the channels that funnel away rainwater cascading down from the roof. If they become blocked, overflow or sections become broken or missing, the water could run down an exterior wall.

Over time this will not only stain but cause damp inside the property too.

#2 Guttering should be fitted with a slight angle to encourage run-off

Unlike other components in your home that must be fixed level, guttering should be fixed at a small angle to encourage rain to run down the channel from the highest end to the lowest end being at the drainpipe where water falls down into the sewers.

#3 Pooling water is not good for guttering

Water, when it collects and pools, becomes heavy. Over time, this may cause the gutter to sag, preventing effective run-off of rainwater when it rains. Eventually the gutter will crack if it is plastic or sag, causing rainwater to overfill and drip down walls etc.

In winter, this pool of water can freeze in the gutter. On thawing, water expands, leading to further cracks and damage to the gutters.

#4 Guttering is quick and easy to maintain (when you know how)

Firstly, working on the guttering of your Stirling property may mean working at height. A fall from the first floor of a two storey property can lead to life-changing injuries. Unless you have the correct equipment and know how to use it, we always advise using a professional and expert company like us.

Better still, not only is maintaining and repairing your guttering quick and easy, it is also relatively inexpensive. Why not call now to find out more?

#5 New plastic guttering can look like period-guttering

Don’t want bright white, modern plastic guttering? The good news is that this is not the only option. Guttering comes in a range of colours, styles and finishes so no one need know that the guttering on your period property is actually made from modern plastic.
