What could happen if I don't take care of my guttering?
Mould damage: once mould begins to accumulate, it spreads and can be difficult to remove. Maintaining your gutters can significantly reduce the possibility of mould damaging your East Sussex home.
Staining to your property: when leaves, debris and dirt obstruct your guttering, rain water has no point of exit to drain away. This causes the rainwater to leak over the edge of the gutters, travel down the outside structure of your property and leave unsightly marks and staining.
Damage caused by rotting wood: over time, substantial rot damage can often lead to structural damage and unnecessary costs further down the line. Again, this damage is caused by the obstruction of rainwater flowing through guttering.
Collapsing and broken guttering: when water accumulates in clogged and unkempt gutters, they can become heavy and break. This can be more of a risk during the winter months as the water can freeze, causing the guttering to collapse.
Gutter cleaning is an essential part of maintaining your East Sussex property.
