Gutter Cleaning, Gutter repairs & Gutter Replacement
- Gutter cleaning
Having your gutters regularly cleaned will avoid water damage. Gutter systems ideally need to be cleaned a minimum of once a year, however, if your property is near a leafy area with trees or has a moss covered roof your gutters will need to be cleaned at least twice a year. Regular gutter cleaning can prevent water damage problems including damp getting into the wall cavity/insulation, rotten wall plates and roof trusses, damp and mould inside/outside your walls, flaking plaster and wallpaper and damp patches on your ceilings, all of which only get worse if no action is taken.
We use a traditional hand cleaning method to clean out the gutters and we then always flush them through with water to check for any faults/leaks or for blocked downpipes/gullies, etc.
There is also another important factor which property owners may not know – property insurance does not cover water damage repairs if gutters have not been annually maintained.
- Leaking, damaged and faulty guttering repaired
We specialise in repairing all types of guttering including cast iron. This encompasses every aspect including faulty clips, rotten seals, leaking joints, missing outlet cone filters, misaligned guttering, pooling and blocked downpipes, etc.
We always keep a large selection of guttering spares on our van and if possible will complete any repairs at that time. However, if the problem is more involved and cannot be resolved there and then, we will provide a price for the work and if you are happy, arrange a suitably convenient time to come back.
- Installation of ALL types and styles of new guttering
If your old guttering or part of it is beyond economical repair, we can supply and install any type or style of new guttering, as required. At this stage, we could also upgrade your guttering such as fitting a deep-flow system, etc. We use only top quality products from the market leaders, such as, Flowplast, Marley, Polypipe, Terrain, etc.
- Fascias and Soffits
We also clean and repair wooden or UPVC fascias and soffits. If your gutters have not been maintained properly, fascias and soffits are the first things to suffer, especially if constructed of wood. We are able to either repair or replace these as necessary.
- Water Harvesting
Collecting and storing free rainwater from your gutters is a great way of providing lots of water for your gardening requirements. We can supply and install all types and styles of water butts and necessary hardware.
If your guttering system is not maintained regularly this can also lead to your soakaway becoming blocked or silting up. This can be a really serious problem as it stops the water from flowing away from the property and its’ foundations. We specialise in any soakaway related problems from replacing gullies and underground pipework to replacing the soakaway itself.
