We all have them, but what do we know about them? Gutters. What’s their purpose? Do we need them? Gutters are key to keeping rainwater flowing to the right areas. That is their sole purpose and that’s why every house needs them. Clogged gutters cause more serious problems throughout your home, which can lead to costly home repair bills. If rainwater isn’t funnelled away properly, it can pool around the foundation of your home and cause serious cracks and compromises to your foundations. This kind of damage is known to cause homes to shift and can collapse if left untreated. Homes around Adelaide and indeed the rest of the country often suffer from various trees around their property dropping their leaves, seeds and nuts at different times of years; and they always find their way to guttering.
How do we solve this? It’s simple and easy; annual gutter cleans. You can do it yourself, all you need really is a bucket, ladder and gloves. However, sometimes its best if the professionals handle it, especially if you’ve left it a while between cleans. GT Roofing is a leading Adelaide roofing specialist operating for over 20 years, and we see all kinds of roofing dilemmas. We can also advise when you might be looking at a replacement or repair of your guttering and can provide you a quote to complete the work for you. Often an overlooked task, cleaning your gutters out regularly, can prevent disasters and further damage come storm season.
We understand that cost is a factor and understand sometimes it seems easier to repair guttering yourself, for some homeowners, being up on a ladder is unsettling and can be dangerous when reaching for that last leaf. Imagine the extra cost if a fall was to occur.
Not only do we look after the guttering you see, we look after the little things, like making sure the box gutter is clear and free of debris. A box gutter also has emergency overflow, which allows excess water to escape the roof should the downpipes become blocked or overflow; this is particularly helpful during serious storms. Without this, water flows back into the roof cavity and down the walls, causing extensive and costly water damage. Not only does the box gutter play a vital role in the guttering system, it also happens to be the weak link. We always make sure this fundamental link is functioning at its peak.
