If enough leaf litter, moss, and other debris build up in your gutters and downpipes to cause a blockage you should arrange to have them cleaned as quickly as possible. If you don’t, you can expect bigger problems.
The weight of water and soaked debris that builds up behind a blockage puts excess pressure on gutter and downpipe joints. This extra weight can cause sections of guttering to sag, joints to open and support fixings to weaken. Rainwater that does not drain away as it should cascade down brickwork. This can cause damp inside your property.
Whatever guttering problems you have we’ll aim to get a roofer to you as quickly as possible and start fixing the problem straight away. They can be booked to work in any postcode district within the M25.
Gutter Cleaning, No More Roof Leaks and Water Damage
When the gutters are clogged, water has nowhere to drain away. Instead, it will find its way to your home through the walls and will cause dampness and mould. Cleaning your gutters twice a year will save your home from:
- Leaky roofs;
- Mould growth and unpleasant odours;
- Pest infestations;
- Foundation cracks;
- Driveway/sidewalk damage;
- Flooded landscape;
- Basement flooding;
- Rotting wood;
