Gutter Repair Townsville

We not only look after your roofs, we look after your gutters, and like roofs, gutters break down and need to be repaired.

Out of all the things around your house that you could possibly think of, probably the last thing that gets your attention is the guttering. Naturally, we consider that the only reason the gutters are there is to take water off the roof and down into the drainage pipework. 

The main function of a gutter is to act as the collection device for all of the rain that is deposited on your roof, and then to guide it away from the roof to the downpipe.

The nearest comparison would be like a funnel, collecting water from a large area and concentrating it to a smaller discharge point. If the rainwater was allowed to simply run off the roof without guttering, particularly in a high wind situation it has the potential to cause water penetration through walls and windows. 
 
It may also cause significant erosion of soil around the house foundations and the long term consequences of that can be expensive and severe damage to the foundations.

​The best prevention is to control that water flow by means of the guttering, and remove the water as quickly as possible to a collection point so that the property does not suffer the above-mentioned issues.
 
For guttering to perform its duty it is necessary to avoid allowing leaks to develop or damage go unrepaired. The worst situation would be to allow guttering to become blocked and thereby totally failing to fulfil its design purpose.

Guttering is not the kind of thing that can be ignored. Failing to maintain it can have long term expensive consequences.

​Water penetration can lead to extensive repairs to internal surfaces, not just externally. If damage to your guttering is so extensive that rainwater cannot reach the downpipes, your roof structure and fascia board may also be at potential risk through the rotting of the timber.

So often gutters are considered to be out of sight and therefore out of mind, and consequently do not receive the maintenance that is due to them.

​Everyone understands how important it is to have a strong functioning roof system, but somehow people tend to forget that the guttering system is just as important.

Probably one of the few times that people take notice of the guttering is when they come to advertise their homes to be sold. All of a sudden the problems start to become obvious. Don’t wait for that occasion before dealing with the guttering issues.

So many times we delay dealing with guttering repairs and suddenly a major storm can leave you with significant internal and external damage. Many of these issues could have been dealt with in the early stages when repairs could be minor and less expensive.

Why wait for a major storm to highlight problems which can be dealt with much earlier?
 
It is in your own interest to deal with initial stages of damage to gutters before full replacement is the only option left. There is no time like the present to get your guttering systems up to optimum performance.
