Gutter Cleaning Coventry
When was the last time you had your property’s gutters looked at by a firm that provides specialist gutter cleaning services?
People spend a fortune making a house a home. Altering the interior by knocking down walls, refurbishing the kitchen and bathroom, redecorating, and adding furniture and accessories they’ve always wanted. Yet all this can be ruined if the exterior of the property isn’t properly maintained.
One of the most neglected areas of a property’s exterior is gutter maintenance. Here at Coventry gutter cleaning company, we pride ourselves in providing the highest level of services at an affordable price.
Broken and missing tiles, damaged chimneys and split valleys are easy to detect from ground level with the naked eye. Not so blocked and damaged gutters. Out of sight, out of mind, is an old adage which could so often be used to describe people’s attitude when it comes to ensuring their gutter system is working efficiently. By the time problems are noticeable, often months after they began, water will have started penetrating wooden fascias and exterior rendering. Driving winter winds force the sitting water past exterior walls and it begins to ingress the interior, causing mould problems, damp walls and ceilings, and in the most severe cases of neglect – structural problems.
The majority of new builds these days, and properties which have had major refurbishment, are fitted with plastic guttering, downpipes, fascias, soffits and bargeboards. On older buildings it’s a good idea to get us to check the state of these items, especially if they are still wood. A little filler, some rubbing down, and a couple of coats of gloss paint, can return them to their former glory, before they are so far gone the only alternative is to replace them. If you are one of the millions who have never given their gutters and downpipes a thought, do it now – before that cheap maintenance job turns into an expensive major one!
Causes of Blocked and Damaged Guttering:
Leaves, moss and general debris washing into the gutters from the roof are the biggest culprits when it comes to blocked gutters. Dead pests, mice and rats, and even squirrels and birds are also discovered in guttering and downpipes by professional gutter cleaners, especially after a particularly harsh winter. Strong gusting winds can pound guttering and downpipes, causing vibration which loosens fixing bolts and breaks gutter seals. Frozen water sitting in gutters during periods of sub-zero temperatures can force joints apart and crack older types of guttering and downpipes. Plastic gutters especially can begin to sag under the weight of accumulated debris and the build up of water or snow that gets trapped. In the worst case scenarios, a building’s foundations can be compromised. Where damaged leaking gutters, and broken downpipes have been neglected over a long period of time, most of that escaping water accumulates around the bottom of the building. As it soaks into the soil, it begins to penetrate bricks and block-work, and increases rusting of reinforcing rods. Now you’re beginning to talk thousands of pounds in renovation costs. All of these problems mean increased repair costs when you finally decide to get them fixed. Yet just a couple of hour’s work by our team of gutter cleaning specialists ensures you keep commercial gutter maintenance and property repair costs to a minimum, and your gutters efficiency at a maximum.
DIY Gutter maintenance:
Certainly many home owners choose to carry out their own gutter maintenance, but it’s not a job for everybody. For a start you need to have basic, but good DIY skills. You need to be comfortable working at height, 16 to 20 feet in the air, and working off a sometimes swaying ladder. You need to know where to place the ladder. No, leaning it against your plastic guttering is not the place to put it. You need to have the required tools and equipment. Often, the cost of hiring tools and equipment will be higher than engaging a firm who specialise in gutter, fascia and soffit cleaning to do the job. Most importantly, you need to know what to look out for as you work your way around your residential gutter and fascia cleaning. If your gutter maintenance hasn’t been carried out for some time, damage may already have been done, which needs to be properly rectified.
