The guttering system and downpipes on all buildings forms an essential part of ensuring your property has enough means to disperse rainwater effectively by moving this away from the foundations and building structure.
Not having a roof maintenance program in place can cause a lot of damage to your property which can be costly to fix once the damage has been done. All this can be prevented by doing some simple yearly maintenance.
If you don’t maintain your gutters it can damage your fascia boards, your paint and find its way into ceiling spaces which can cause internal damage. At Mott Property Services, we also see many homes were the water is running directly on to the foundation of the house which over time will cause movement and cracking. Our skilled plumbing professionals in Adelaide can assist you with regular upkeep and prevention from this happening to your building because no one wants to deal with costly repairs on things that can be prevented.
Gutter Warning Signs
If you notice any of the following:
- a buildup of debris in gutters
- the gutters overflowing
- peeling paint on fascia boards
- or mould and dampness on the exterior of your building or home,
it’s a sign that your gutters and downpipes need to be cleaned.
We find the common misconception with gutter cleaning is “if I have gutter guard then I don’t need to clean my gutters”. This is wrong and this is more often where we see the worst cases of neglect on new and old homes.
Also just because it is a new home you still need to clean your gutters on a regular basis
As we tend to find that the stormwater side of things on new homes has not had a lot of consideration with moving the water away from the house and foundations.
