Having a broken or clogged gutter can cause a range of issues and ensuring they are fixed is vital. Though, if you’d like to find out why gutter repairs are so important, make sure to read on below.
Do Gutters Have a Function?
The primary function of gutters is to drive water from your roof away from where it could potentially damage your home in places such as the foundation and the walls. If your home was to continuously be exposed to these harsh elements, then you could find yourself with a lot of expensive problems with your home.
Why is Gutter Repair Necessary?
Debris such as leaves, twigs and branches are common culprits of gutter blocking and other such problems. Whilst scooping out leaves yourself can seem like an easy fix, you shouldn’t take the risk.
- Control the flow of water around your home,
- Won’t allow water to collect around the foundations of your home,
- Won’t cause damage to the fascia around your home,
- Won’t cause excessive moisture build-up, which creates bacteria and mould in and around your home,
- Won’t leak and create damage to the ceiling and interior walls of your home,
- Cut down the mosquito/insect population around your home.
Looking at the bigger picture does give some further perspective on how important it is to ensure your gutters are properly working. Not doing so can cause a huge range of problems and some which are expensive to rectify.
How to Perform Gutter Repairs
It is recommended that to prolong the lifetime of your gutters, you should have them cleaned at least once a year. The best times to do this is just before the beginning of winter, after the autumn leaves have fallen and before the bad weather truly arrives. Doing so will reduce your chances of experiencing a blocked or broken gutter later in the year and still gives you a chance to book in a gutter repair before it gets too wet and windy. Though it can also be a good idea to have your gutter cleared in Spring.
In short, every property needs its gutters regularly cleaned as a part of ongoing maintenance. It’ll help them last longer and help you to avoid costly repairs later down the line.
