Regular gutter clearing - Is it that important?

Absolutely, it is crucial. A properly cleaned and well-maintained gutter plays a vital role in preventing potential structural damage and, in some cases, interior damage to buildings.

Gutters come as a standard feature on properties, serving the essential function of diverting rainwater away from the roof and safely guiding it away from the structure. While it may not be at the forefront of most property owners' minds until they notice long-term damage, neglecting gutter maintenance can lead to costly repairs.

Regardless of the gutter material—whether it's plastic, cast iron, or steel—regular annual maintenance ensures that they remain clear of debris, allowing water to flow freely and reducing the risk of long-term damage.

What causes blocked gutters?

Throughout the year, gutters accumulate various types of natural debris, including leaves, pine needles, moss, and grass. Additionally, birds often carry and drop seeds, while wind-blown leaves settle on rooftops and eventually collect inside gutters and downpipes, leading to blockages.

Moss poses a significant challenge in clogging gutters, especially for properties shaded by trees or facing north, where there's less light and optimal conditions for moss growth in damp, shaded areas.

The damp environment within clogged gutters provides an ideal breeding ground for moss and weeds, which can proliferate and obstruct water flow, causing overflow and potential damage, particularly during winter months when snow and ice exacerbate the problem.

Above the gutters, moss acts like a sponge on the roof, absorbing moisture and preventing proper drying, which can lead to damage to the property as dampness seeps through the tiles. Our innovative Gutter Vacuum Systems with roof scrapers effectively remove moss before it becomes a more significant issue for you.

How do blocked gutters cause property damage?

When gutters become obstructed, rainwater is unable to flow smoothly. If left blocked, they will eventually overflow, leading to a range of potential issues.

Common consequences of this overflow include extensive damage to various parts of your property, such as foundations, walls, fascia boards, windows, and ceilings. Internally, this damage can foster the growth of mould spores and cause dampness within the home.

How do we clear your gutters?

We've made significant investments in professional equipment, enabling us to inspect, diagnose, and clear your gutters safely from the ground, with minimal disruption to you, the property owner.

With our high-powered gutter vacuum system, we can effectively clear gutters that would otherwise be inaccessible. Using our series of carbon fiber poles, we can safely reach over conservatories, extensions, or garages, catering to standard-sized domestic properties as well as structures up to four stories tall across domestic, commercial, and some industrial settings.

When should I have my gutters cleared?

If you notice water visibly flowing down the exterior of your building or leaking from overflowing gutters, it's a clear indication of a blockage. We recommend scheduling inspections during the autumn and spring seasons.

Regular maintenance check-ups are essential for preventing blockages, particularly if your property is surrounded by overhanging trees or your roof is prone to moss growth. This proactive approach will help ensure your gutters remain clear throughout the year.
