Clearing Gutters and Downpipes
Gutter and down pipe clearing is critical in maintaining the condition of your property - externally and internally.
It is surprising but a blocked gutter or down-pipe can have serious consequences.
Most often it is caused by the build-up of leaves, moss and other debris hidden from view. Ironically a blocked guttering system is sometimes only noticed in very heavy rain when it leaks profusely.
It is then that homeowners take it upon themselves to investigate the cause of the blockage at great personal risk as this often requires tricky work at the very limits of the ladder system they are using
Following strict health and safety guidelines we will use ladders to inspect the guttering and give a full and honest account of the problem, clear it and offer advise on how to avoid the same in future.
A blocked or leaking gutter can let rainwater penetrate into the brickwork. Over an extended period this might lead to an adverse build-up of moisture in the walls potentially leading to costly damp issues. But if build up in gutters is watched and they are cleaned regularly the rainwater will flow where it is supposed to and costly maintenance work can be avoided on your home.
We offer comprehensive maintenance contracts and expert advice as we have years of experience understanding how gutters and down-pipes get blocked and in clearing them to keep everything clear and working.
How we clear gutters and downpipes:
- 1) Firstly we will do a full visual assessment of the guttering to establish what is going on in the guttering.
- 2) Then we do a test to check flow in down pipes.
- 3) We will then remove the debris carefully avoiding damage to any tiling and fascia's.
