Guttering

Should You Repair or Replace Your Guttering?

October 6, 2015 2:39 pm Published by

Due to harsh weather conditions and general wear and tear, over time issues can start to appear with your guttering. This can eventually cause much worse problems that will result in huge pay outs. So if you have a problem with your industrial guttering, it can be difficult to know if it is a simple repair job or if you will need to replace part or all of your guttering.

A Repair

The majority of the time a replacement can be avoided if regular care and maintenance is provided to your guttering. We recommend that you clean out your guttering at least once a year to remove any small bits of debris or leaves that will inevitably start to clog it. If your property is in an area surrounded by trees then you might want to do this more regularly – as a rule of thumb this job is often best done towards the end of Autumn.

It is also important to check your guttering for small cracks and splits – these are often caused due to the weather conditions and means that water spills out at unwanted places. A simple repair job will easily fix this and avoid a much costlier replacement so make sure you keep your eye on your guttering.

A Replacement

If you leave a problem for a long time or were unaware that one existed until something big happened, then the odds are that you will need a replacement. If there is evidence of rust or rotting within any of the pieces then these will need to be removed. If large cracks and splits have also occurred over time, these sections will need to be replaced.

Different types of guttering have different life expectancies so checking when they were last replaced is vital. You can read further information about gutters and what your options are by visiting us here.
