Gutter Repair Problems
Leaking, overflowing, or damaged gutters can cause huge problems for you and your home if not fixed promptly. Most gutter related issues are caused by the lack of building maintenance such as gutter cleaning and fixing gutter problems quickly. It is advisable to complete gutter cleaning and gutter repairs routinely.
Penetrating damp is a common problem that many homeowners experience. This can be a result of water regularly splashing against an exterior wall, which absorbs through the bricks, or through loose motor and other gaps. This often results in mold, bubbling paint, loose plaster and a damp smell in the adjacent room.
Water ingress is also a cause for concern. Leaking or overflowing gutters can channel water directly into the property rather than away from the property, which is most common on properties with gutters sitting directly on or against the brickwork. Evidence of water ingress is usually found in the form of wet patches on the ceiling/wall on the opposite side to the gutter. Water can also ingress through window and door seals, air vents, and other areas where openings can be found outside the house.
