Problems Caused by Blocked Gutters
Unfortunately the UK is not the sunniest country, which means rain and the need for clear useful gutter systems. Problems in gutter blockage can be very inconvenient and damaging to your household. Are your gutters leaking or full of leaves and garden debris? It is very important to take notice of things that may seem small in order to prevent further damage or the need for costly procedures in the future.
Water running down your structure causing damp walls, increased damage from ice and frost, ground saturation, gutters vulnerable to damage due to large weight or quantity of water strains, damaged clips and anchors, collapse of gutter.
Direct flooding, mold or other fungal growths which can cause health problems, pockets of damp spreading which encourages insect populations or other pests within the home, rising damp and water seeping into the roof area causing a threat to timber.
It is important to keep drainage systems well maintained and to make sure they are clear of debris at the point at which they enter the ground. Water flow can be effected by a build up of leaves, twigs, berries and seeds and general wastes.
