WHY USE OUR GUTTER CLEANING SERVICE?
Roof line guttering is an essential component to ensure the long-term survival of buildings. In conjunction with a watertight roof, the gutters ensure that rainwater is channelled away from the building safely. Water is one of the greatest causes of damage to buildings both externally and internally; it is vital that guttering systems are well maintained.
Blocked and damaged gutters will overflow, leaking onto wall surfaces causing damage to coatings and masonry. Less obvious will be seepage into the building interior, causing structural damage that rarely reveals itself until an advanced stage is reached. Water ingress at best leads to decorative damage, at worst fungal growth, insect infestation and dry rot.
Water runoff that is not properly channelled away will saturate the ground below and may undermine walls, promoting rising damp.
Gutters capture rainwater from the roof surfaces guiding it away safely to drainage
They prevent damage to the external and the internal structures of the house
They prevent flooding around the immediate perimeter of the house
They keep the external surfaces of the house clean (otherwise they would be continually dirty from debris washed from the roof)
They avoid you getting soaked when using entrances to the property!
Most modern guttering systems are made from plastics making them cheap very easy to maintain and providing a long service life. But they do have one disadvantage, compared with cast and other formed metallic systems - they are flexible and, if blocked, will distort under load. This means that overflow from a debris blocked plastic gutter will be accentuated.
