It would probably surprise you to find out how much water the roof of your home collects, with such a large surface area even a short and sweet downpour can see quite a large amount of water being transported around your home. When there’s a leak or blockage in your guttering all that water ends up pooling on your roof, which either means that it’s going to leak into your roof or out the side of the gutter onto the ground below. This may not seem like a big deal, but often when it hits the ground and starts to pool (if not already damaging something directly in its path) that water can start to leak down into the foundation of your home and begin to cause some quite serious damage. If your gutters are overflowing, don’t let it begin to cripple your home and have them professionally repaired, cleaned or replaced by the professionals.
Despite mainly being built from PVC, there are actually a number of different materials that are used for guttering, including steel and other kinds of plastic. Each material needs to be treated specially, there are little tricks that can be used on materials such as metal guttering that not only improve the lifespan of the product but ensure that it continues to work around the clock. Don’t take risks with your guttering, if you need a repair get the help from a risk-free, professional service like WAMA Roofing.
Whether doing a repair or installing a totally new roof, the guttering needs to be treated the same – with a high attention to detail. When not done properly you simply can’t get the same results, and when the risk of having your foundations damaged comes into play, do you want to take that risk? If you want to take the safe and reliable choice, head to our contact page to get in touch with us and organize a repair of your gutters.
The repairs themselves are obviously the important part here. There is a surprisingly large difference between how installation is commenced and how a roof guttering repair should be handled. Often when you’re installing guttering you’re dealing with large, long lengths of material that needs to be affixed to the house, but with repairs you just focus on the section that’s damaged, which requires a whole new skillset to make small repairs. Our team have worked so hard on this skillset so that each repaired gutter holds up just as strong if it was the first day of the gutters installation.
Repairs often are required from a buidlup in leaves in the gutter system – this can be avoided! Prevention is always better than the cure which is why we offer plenty of guttering accessories to help get the best results from your guttering. We offer lots of small and large accessories to help your gutters stay clean; one of which is gutter netting to prevent leaves getting into your gutters and building up blockages that prevent water moving around.
