How cleaning your gutter can help you avoid roof repairs

Has your roof started leaking? Chances are, your gutters might be to blame.

Think about it… when was the last time you hired someone to clean your gutters? Or, if you prefer to do the job yourself, when was the last time you cleaned them?

Let’s be honest, it’s the job that a lot of people put off – it’s just one of those jobs you know you need to do but don’t want to.

Sadly, the reality is if your gutters get blocked, you could be facing a number of problems.

If you let leaves and debris to build up in your gutters, water can build up when it rains. This, in turn, can cause leaky roofs – which means you then have to pay out for a roof repair.

Don’t let your gutters cause loose tiling and slating

By making sure your gutters are cleaned regularly, you can help to avoid water damage to your roof and property.

It’s also important to make sure your downpipes are clear, as this will help the water flow nicely.

Getting your gutters cleaned once or twice a year isn’t enough. When you consider how many leaves fall during autumn and winter – your gutter is going to get blocked much quicker than you think.

Arrange regular gutter maintenance

If you arrange regular gutter maintenance, you’re taking steps to make sure the water is able to flow away from your property. This minimises the risk of roof damage and even interior leaks.

Here at Abbey Roofing Contractors, we provide gutter maintenance for larger properties, so you won’t have to clean them yourselves. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch today.
