Why you should maintain your guttering
Gutters play an important role in any building so it's vital to carry out proper and regular gutter maintenance. The purpose of a gutter is to redirect water flow off the roof and away from you commercial or industrial building. However, there are instances where this flow is impeded. If this happens then very costly roof repairs will ensue. Below are some common problems that can occur due to poorly maintain gutters:
- Water Staining - This problem is particularly common if leaves, dirt, and general debris builds up in your gutter. Water cannot flow properly and so will build up and leak over the edge. Although this doesn’t normally cause any structural damage, the side of your commercial or industrial building will develop dirty looking stains.
- Rotting Wood – This is a problem for buildings with wooden eves. As with water stain, if the water cannot drain properly it can build up on wooden structures. This not only leads to aesthetics issues but also substantial damage to the structure of your building, which can lead to a very expensive repair bill.
- Sagging Gutters – If your gutters are clogged with debris, water will build up. If it does not flow over the side, it can make the guttering extremely heavy, causing it to sag. This problem is particularly bad during winter when there is a build-up of ice. As the years go on your guttering could come away from your building.
- Mold – If water does not drain properly mould can develop. If this happens it can spread and cause integral issues with your structure.
To combat any of these problems, the simple answer is regular maintenance of your guttering. If you require more information about gutter maintenance or would like a free, no-obligation quote, please contact our professional and friendly team on 020 8037 1848.
