Roof damage is a very common worry amongst homeowners and often goes hand in hand with gutter damage. However, gutter damage can exist for all sorts of reasons, even if your roof is perfectly fine. Property owners should check the condition of their gutter regularly to ensure it’s up to scratch and to avoid complications later on down the road.
Signs of Gutter Damage
How can you tell if the gutters & downpipes in your Melbourne property need replacing? If they have been filling up with water and debris or are rusted out, chances are it’s time to get new ones. The longer these problems have been occurring, the more likely it is that a gutter replacement is in order.
Gutters made of galvanised metal rust out very easily. These days, you don’t see many galvanised metal gutters, but they are very common in older properties. Luckily, gutter technology has come a long way since then. The materials on the market now are made to last, ensuring that your gutters will remain clear and leak-free no matter what Australian weather conditions they incur.
A second reason why your gutters may rust is because they have incorrect fall (which means water can’t fully escape from the gutter and does not flow into the downpipes). When replacing any gutters, our experienced team ensures that they have correct fall and that any existing downpipes are not blocked.
Gutters that sag are pull away from your home are one other telltale sign that you may need gutter replacement. In this case, you may also be in need of new gutter fascia, which are the boards that run under your roof and hold your gutter in place. Roof Guard handles gutter fascia replacement in conjunction with gutter replacement, as well as offering each of these services individually.
If you think there is something wrong with your gutter, downpipes or fascia, the best response is to get to the root of the issue as soon as possible.
