Gutters and Downpipes are sometimes overlooked when it comes to the overall maintenance of any property. They do, however, perform one of the most important functions when it comes to roofing systems. Guttering traps run-off from the non-permeable roof and leads it into the downpipes, which in return transport the water to the stormwater system. If gutters become blocked, rotted or otherwise damaged, this can lead to leaks and other major forms of damage.
Leaking gutters may seem like no big deal in the first instance, but when left unmanaged they can transform into interior leaks and roof damage. Over time, especially in the harsher climates, gutters weaken and have increased chance of failure. If you think that your gutters or downpipes are looking a little worn out, or there are obvious signs of rust, give A-Grade Roofing a call and we’ll come out to inspect the situation. We use the highest quality materials for all our guttering and downpipe products, so you can rest assured that the gutters and downpipes will last for many years to come. A benefit of having your guttering and downpipe system refreshed is that it can improve the overall aesthetics of the property, especially in conjunction with a roof repair or replacement.
