Gutter Repair Canberra

Gutters often don’t get much credit. We think all they do is move water from the roof to the drainage pipes, and of course, that is what they do … but we often don’t think of what might happen if that system breaks down.
 
There is a reason why we need gutters. Rain water that falls on our roof needs to be guided off the property. Our roofs act like funnels, capturing a large area of water and directing it towards a much smaller area. Without gutters, that funnel of water would pour onto our yards in torrents, or flow down our exterior walls and pool at our foundations, causing erosion at the base of the walls, and exposing our foundations to the elements.

Gutters, however, control that water and move it away from the property. If, however, your gutters are developing leaks, or have become damaged, or become blocked, you no longer have control of that flow of water.
 
Repairing your gutters now can help you save far larger bills in the future. As we’ve said before, if water pools at your foundations, erosion can occur and your foundations become exposed to the environment. This might then results in cracks and leaks forming in your home’s foundations, and that can become quite expensive.
 
If your gutter is damaged so that water can’t run away down the downpipes, then the water can back up on to the roof itself. This pooling of water on the roof can cause small pressure areas to form on your roof, which can lead to leaks and cracks forming.

There are many aspects of roof maintenance, and sometimes gutter maintenance falls by the wayside. Everyone knows the importance of a good, strong roof, but not as many people know the importance of a well functioning gutter system.
 
Think about it: how often do people who are selling their homes advertise they have good function gutters? Not very often, but they are far more likely to advertise they have had a new roof installed.
 
And yet, ensuring your gutters are maintained is vitally important.
