So many problems can arise from having blocked gutters and down pipes. If there is muck and debris in the gutter and the outlet, the rain water will sit still instead of running away as it should. This can result in rotten roof felt and timber fascias. The gutter may come away from the fascia due to the weight of the water inside.

The water has to go somewhere. If there's a bad run on the gutter or the union has sagged, the water may tip over, either running down or splashing onto the base of the wall. If the run is good, the water will head towards the outlet. If there is a blockage here, which is the most common problem, it will leak over the side or through the joint in the bend. The water will usually run down the outside of the down pipe until it comes into contact with the wall via the bracket. This can also happen if there is a blockage in the pipe, drain or soakaway.

In all cases, the result is DAMP WALLS. This can be serious, as insurance companies often refuse to pay out on this type of problem. Exterior walls dry out but extensive repairs may be required if the damp gets through to your plaster, paint and flooring inside which it eventually will if the water keeps running.

Gutters direct rainfall away from buildings to protect the outer skin of the property together with the foundations. Gutter cleaning helps avoid costly repairs and roof damage. Gutter systems should be ideally thoroughly cleaned twice a year.
