Gutters are in effect a cup that deliver rain water that hits your roof to the down spouts/drain pipes. If Debris has formed this could be as a result of moss, leaves and airbourne rubish soil and seads building up in the gutter Small amounts may be cleared naturaly when the collected water flows along the gutter carrying the debris along to the down spouts. If debris is not cleared this can cause issues as Gutters play a vital role on any property without regular maintainance this could happen.
- Overflowing water can fall onto walls and window sils
- When the water gets to a level where it then has to escape it can be in the form of large droplets that drop onto sils, aside from the dripping sound if the external sills are wooden this could eventual lead to rot.
- When water sits in gutters for any length time this is generaly because of a blockage this sitting water could begin to affect the fascia boards and again if they are original wooden instalation cause rot to set in.
- Rubber gutter seals could rot/fail earlier and create a waterfall effect with streaming water that has the potential to cause a great deal more problems.
