About

Purpose of guttering

Gutters collect rainwater from the roof surfaces carrying it safely to drainage.

 

They prevent damage to external and internal building structures.

 

They are the first line of defence to prevent erosion around the foundations.

 

They prevent flooding around the immediate vercinity of your property.

 

They keep the external surfaces of the house clean by stopping debris running from the roof straight on to your property.

 

Why it is important to keep your gutters clean

Water continually running down the side of a house slowly erodes surface structure.

 

Saturates the ground around the foundations which is likely to cause rising damp.

 

Badly maintained gutters are vulnerable to damage and distortion due to the weight of retained water.

 

Damage to clips and anchoring points.

 

Gutter could collapse from prelonged excessive weight in the channels.

Internal damage

Overflowing gutters may allow water to seep in to the internal roof area and onto roof timber, this threatens slow but far reaching damage to the integrity of the roof structure.

 

Seepage of water on to internal surfaces causing the development of mould and fungal growth on damp internal walls.

 

Internal rising damp as a result of water damage from exterior build up around the footings.
