Why is the Guttering on your Home Important?
Or in other words, why you need to look after you guttering.
Gutters on any property are important. In an average cloud burst down pour, your roof and gutters could be coping with several hundred gallons of water spilling of it every second. If your gutters are damaged, not repaired in a timely manner then you could stockpile a number of expensive problems for the future.
If you think you guttering need some attention, don’t procrastinate any longer!
- Damage to your building
Around the edges of the base of many properties is concrete. It is a material that has been known as used by man for many years; it is one of the hardest, composite materials we know, with the ancient Egyptians using the first type of concrete. So who would think that rainwater, dropping or rolling onto concrete could, over time cause such serious erosion that it compromises the structure of the building?
If you learn nothing else today, you need to learn that water is an incredibly erosive liquid. Its affects might not be immediately obvious, but its power on occasions and even the drip-drip-drip of water of time will cause problems. These problems are costly to repair, the repairs invade the smooth running of the family home and probably could have been avoided if the dodgy guttering on your property had been fixed or replaced all those years ago...
In all seriousness, rainwater not being channelled effectively from your property and left to do so unabated for many years can cause serious issues with the foundations of your property. Also known as subsistence, it can make your property uninsurable, leaving you with a very hefty repair or rebuild bill.
- Landscape damage
Water will always try and take the shortest run-ff route but our insistence of building roads, houses, walls etc all mean that we interfere with this natural run off pattern of water. Not having guttering that work correctly to funnel the water straight into the sewer means that the water has to find another way to roll ‘downhill’. And, just like it does with concrete, water will erode itself a nice little path from where it leaves your property to wherever it is it wants to go.
Maintaining your guttering so that if functions all year round is not difficult of costly. Many homeowners ask a reputable firm such as Roofline Glasgow to maintain their property as they cannot or do not want to work at height.
