roofGuttering is extremely important to the wellbeing of your home. If gutters and down-pipes are cleaned regularly and the supporting fascia is well maintained, then you should have years of trouble free water management.

When leaves and dust are left in the guttering they eventually build up to a thick layer of moisture retaining debris. This debris can be extermely abrasive and can exposes the gutter to water and enzymes that cause rust. The rust will eventually corrode right through the thickness of the gutter, creating leaky holes along its length. If you notice that your gutters are overflowing every time you have a decent downpour, this is a good indication that your gutters are full of sludge and debris.

The sludge can also add considerable weight to the gutter, putting extra strain on the gutter mounting brackets, and in some cases even causing the gutter to sag and twist between mounts. If the timber fascia that supports the guttering has begun decaying from wood rot, then it is also much more likely that the added weight will cause the guttering to collapse.

If your guttering has collapsed, despite regular gutter maintenance, there is a very strong chance that the timber fascia has been exposed to wood rot. See our section on fascia’s for more information.

Signs of moisture inside?

aaAbnormal water anywhere in the home needs immediate investigation. If it’s not a plumbing problem then it is almost certainly due to either a leaking roof or overflowing gutters.

An overflowing gutter or leaking roof may not always seem the obvious source of water because it may not appear inside until well after rain has stopped. This could be because there is a slow leak, or the water pools in the ceiling putting enormous pressure on the flooded area. Sometimes you may not even see any visible water, only patches of mould that you have never seen before. Where there is mould there is moisture, and it needs to be stopped.


What happens if I do nothing?

The integrity of the ceiling will eventually be so compromised that it will become weak, begin to sag and eventually may even collapse.
Mould on ceilings or walls are a serious health risk and will only get worse.
Electrical wiring may be damaged and short out.
Plaster on brick or stonewalls will break down and fall off.
