Gutter Cleaning and Repair in Nottingham and Derby
Periodic gutter maintenance, cleaning and repair can make the difference between carefree living or the prospect of damp walls and damaged pointing, which in turn can cause damage to the exterior face and structure of the brickwork.
The importance of maintaining your gutters
If you have large trees near your home, your gutters and downpipes will get clogged-up and blocked over time. Some of my customers who live in Harlow Wood and the Sherwood Forest area who’s gutters are cleaned twice a year, always have a build-up of decaying vegetation during a 6 – 12 month period. Over a period of a few years, their gutters would almost certainly get blocked and start to overflow. Not what you want when coming out your door!
Blocked gutters can be the cause of damp in your home. Ignoring periodic gutter maintenance will over time lead to leaking joints and overflowing gutters. This can cause water to soak through the mortar joints and cause damp problem inside your property.
