3 reasons why you should clean your gutters

3 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS

Your gutters are an essential part of your roofline, and they have to be free of debris at all times. A clean gutter is a must because plenty of problems can arise otherwise. Make it your goal this year to make gutter clearing a regular part of your home maintenance. Here’s 3 reasons why you should clean your gutters.

1. INTERNAL DAMP AND MOULD

In the majority of cases internal damp and mould problems can be dealt with pretty easily and can be caused by something quite obvious when you have pin-pointed the source of the moisture. In most cases it’s the result of poor maintenance to the gutters and roofline.

2. FASCIA & SOFFIT BOARD DAMAGE

The fascia board is mounted just below the roof, and it’s where gutters are connected, The soffit board is underneath. Clogged gutters tend to overflow, and the water spilled will get into the fascia & soffit boards, thus causing damage to the roofline. Clogged gutters can Cause very costly repairs if left running poorly.

3. FOUNDATION DAMAGE

Gutter problems could affect everything in your home, including the foundation. Overflowing water from the gutter can go everywhere, but it will most likely run down the wall and into your home’s foundation. The water that gets there could freeze during the winter season, which can affect the strength and integrity of the foundation. The reason why gutters and downpipes are installed in your home is to make sure that rainwater goes to the right place which is away from the property.

Gutter cleaning in Christchurch

GUTTER CLEANING IN CHRISTCHURCH

We had a call from the owner of this home who was looking for gutter cleaning in Christchurch, Dorset. His gutters were full of moss and he said the birds kept flying into the gutter and throwing it onto his garden which was quite annoying.

He had just had new grass laid and didn’t want the moss ruining his new lawn. We gave him a quote to clear the gutters over the phone which he immediately agreed to.

He also had a small bay window roof and gutter that needed clearing on the ground floor. I got up the ladder and took a photo of the gutters which were full to the brim with moss.

It was now time to clear all the guttering and unblock the downpipes, I also check all the gutters joints for leaks. Armed with my ladder and a bucket i was ready to tackle this mess quickly and efficiently.

Clearing and cleaning of gutters is usually missed on the list of things to do in a property, but it’s one of the most important jobs that should be on a list! blocked and poorly running gutters can cause internal damp and mould problems in the home causing very expensive repair bills.

Once all the guttering was cleared we showed him the before and after photos. He was shocked at how full up they were but he was happy with the end result.

Here’s the before and after photos of the clearance.

Driveway cleaning in bournemouth

DRIVEWAY CLEANING IN BOURNEMOUTH

This week we were driveway cleaning in bournemouth after a customer tried to do it themselves. They didn’t have the right pressure washing equipment to do the job properly so called us to give them a quote to have it cleaned.

To make a block paved driveway look like new again you really need to have a decent pressure washer. This is where we come in, with years of knowledge on how to clean exterior surfaces we can tackle anything.

First we had to sweep the driveway and apply a biocide treatment to kill unwanted organic growths including algae & lichen. Then we set up our pressure cleaner ready to tackle the job.

It had a lot of weeds in the paving that needed blasting out of the cracks so for this we needed the turbo lance to get right inbetween each block, this is an important process as you need to re-sand the driveway after using kiln dried sand so everything needs to be removed during the cleaning process.

It was a hot day so it dried really quickly giving it that new laid look! now all we had to do was sand it. Here’s the photos during the sanding process and after now its cleaned and re-sanded.

Gutter Cleaning in Bournemouth

GUTTER CLEANING IN BOURNEMOUTH

We received a call from a regular customer of ours who was looking for gutter cleaning in bournemouth.

He has used us several times before so he was confident that we would do a great job. We arranged to go out and see the property that day after work and upon jumping up a ladder i could see that the gutters and roof valleys were full up with moss.

I arranged with him to come back the following week to complete the works needed to get the gutters and roof valleys back to good working order. It was a dry day so it was easy to clear the guttering and check all the joints over for leaks. 

Starting the clearing of the roof valleys first, then onto the guttering and downpipes! the job only took about an hour and a half from start to finish with both of us being happy with the end result, so happy that he even booked in again next year.

He was advised that gutter cleaning and maintenance should be done annually, especially if you have lots of moss or overhanging trees.

Roof cleaning in Christchurch

ROOF CLEANING IN CHRISTCHURCH

We recently got a call from a new customer who was looking for roof cleaning in Christchurch.

It had a carpet of moss on it which the lady wanted removing as she had just purchased the property. Carpet definitely looks better inside the home rather than on the roof so she called us to come and give her a quote which she happily accepted.

We decided together that the softwashing approach was better than cleaning it manually as it looks like a new roof once its cleaned, with manual removal methods it takes a while longer to look like new because the biocide treatment has to get to work and clear the tiles of algea build up, this usually takes 2-3 weeks but can take longer.

I must admit it’s a messy job that most people wouldn’t do, but the end product is you have a new roof at a fraction of the price of a full replacement.

After 2 days hard graft and a lot of tears here is the result, i do love my job, we even booked the neighbours roof for the following week.

Gutter repairs in Christchurch

GUTTER REPAIRS IN CHRISTCHURCH

Today we were working on some gutter repairs in Christchurch. The weather has been nice lately so they didn’t notice until it rained heavily, which was unfortunate.

They called us to come and repair their downpipe as it had come away from the guttering causing all the rain water from the roof to pool outside their front door and lovely front garden. It’s safe to say that once we fixed the problem they no longer needed an umbrella and wellies to leave the house.

All we had to do was put a ladder up and re-attach the downpipe and put screws in to hold it in place, the job took no more than 15 minutes and is now back in good working order, and as an added bonus for them we checked all the guttering over with no other problems to report leaving both me and them happy as Larry.

As a homeowner, you have a long to-do list of necessary upkeep and projects for your home. Gutter cleaning and repairs should be a routine part of this list. In actuality, it is one of the more important since rainwater runoff caused from poorly managing your gutter system can damage your home and foundation.
