Proper Function of Your Roof
Even though your gutters may seem like an unimportant part of your home or business, they are essential to the proper function of your roof. Roofs are constantly exposed to the harsh Australian elements, especially recently with all the crazy weather we’ve been getting! Because of this, they will suffer wear and tear over the years. The best thing is prevention; it doesn’t take too long or cost too much to remove leaves and other debris from your gutters and downpipes. However, if left unchecked, excess water near your foundations can cost thousands of dollars in foundation repairs. Don’t wait to fix your gutters until after a problem occurs; give AGC Roof Maintenance a call today for a free quote.
But It’s Covered by My
Home Insurance, Isn’t It?
Did you know that in the case of home flooding, insurance companies have been known to reject claims if guttering has not met compliance standards?
If your gutters or downpipes are damaged or leaking, don’t hesitate to replace them as soon as possible. Nowadays, they can be bought from any good home centre. There are many different types, such as galvanised steel, stainless steel, Colorbond, Zincalume, copper, vinyl and aluminium.
Can I Fix Them Myself?
Although you may be able to fix them yourself, it’s highly recommended to get a professional in to do the job as working at heights is very dangerous. Every year in Australia, an average of 29 people die from work-related falls, and these are people who are trained to work at heights. More shockingly is that half of the fatal falls involved distances of three metres or less!
There are also tricks of the trade, such as the slope; without the correct slope, the water will pool in your gutter and not run down your downpipe, leading to eventual gutter replacement.
Like most things, your roof requires regular maintenance, repairs and cleaning to prevent damage and costly repairs later down the track.
