Gutters and downpipes are often ignored until there is a serious problems with drainage and run-off. When it comes to gutters and downpipes you may need minor (or major) repairs and/or replacement.
Gutters overlooked in the home maintenance schedule and a major cause of leaks within the home can be traced back to blocked and damaged guttering. This is why it is really important to check the guttering for leaves, tennis balls, etc., because 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.
Quality gutters are now made from Aluminium and steel, with a zinc/aluminium alloy as a protective coating.
The first leak or rust spot will normally indicate that all your gutters need replacing. This is because each gutter is under the same weather conditions right around the house. Gutter replacement is often the case, unless there is a specific localised problem. For example, if there is an overhanging tree or the guttering has been incorrectly erected, then gutter replacement is not required. However, you will normally look at complete gutter replacement.
