Have you had your gutters checked?
Most homes’ gutters and downpipes are ignored until there is a serious problem. Such as 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.
AT ROOF SEAL® WE OFFER:
> Full Guttering and Downpipe
> Gutter Replacement and Repair
Historically, in Australia, guttering was made from galvanised iron but was been made using lead, copper and plastic. More recently guttering have been made with Aluminium and steel, with a zinc/aluminium alloy as a protective coating.
These two more recent innovations have extended the life of guttering, unlike 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. Meaning, when one gutter rusts, they all will usually start to rust. Unless there is a specific local problem. For example, an overhanging tree, or if the guttering has been erected incorrectly. If there are any of these issues, the usual outcome is a complete gutter replacement.

Guttering in both aluminium and steel can be delivered in a painted finish with a variety of popular Colorbond colours to suit any home.
