Most homes’ guttering and downpipes are ignored until there is a serious problem that arises resulting in problems with drainage and run-off. When it comes to guttering, spouting and downpipes you may need minor (or major) repairs and/or replacement.
Gutter replacement is often overlooked in the home maintenance schedule. A major cause of leaks within the home can be traced back to blocked and damaged guttering, which is why it is really important to check the guttering for leaves, tennis balls, etc., as they will inhibit the run off of water and contribute to their deterioration. If your having issues with leaks you should take a look at your gutter before deciding to complete a roof restoration or re-roofing your home.
AT ROOF SEAL® WE OFFER:
> Full Guttering and Downpipe
> Gutter Replacement and Repair
Historically, in Australia, guttering (or spouting) has been made from galvanised iron but has also been made in lead, copper and plastic. More recently the base products for guttering have been Aluminium and steel, with a zinc/aluminium alloy as a protective coating.
These two more recent innovations have extended the life of guttering as opposed to the once popular galvanised product.
Because guttering is subject to the same weather conditions right around the house, the first leak or rust spot will normally indicate that all of your guttering needs renewing. Unless there is a specific local problem (e.g. an overhanging tree, or the guttering has been erected incorrectly you will normally look at complete gutter replacement).
