Maintain Your Gutters - Sometimes Cleaning is Not Enough

23 Oct 2019

 by Brett Mulhall

The gutter system on your roof has an important job. It collects the rain and more importantly sends it to the downpipes. These downpipes then guide that water to an exit point. The exit point is chosen for a good reason - it stops the water from eroding the base of your home or any cladding. This protects your home in the long run and is just one reason why you should maintain your gutters.

When you maintain your gutters, most people assume cleaning and clearing them is enough. It definitely is an important part. Removing any obvious debris allows rain to run through it easily. But there are other things you can also be doing to maintain your gutters.

There are extra things you can buy to have your gutters working at an optimal level. A splash guard is one idea. By attaching a splash guard, it protects your home from heavy rainfall that would usually spill out of a gutter. Buying a bigger gutter itself may also be a good idea to maintain your gutters. This is a good option if you live in a heavy rainfall area.

If you're not in a heavy rainfall area, but have a lot of trees, then a gutter guard may be a good idea. By attaching a guard over the top of your gutter, it can limit the debris that enters it. While you won't stop it completely, this will give you your best chance at keeping your gutter clear.
Installing extra downpipes can also be an option to maintain your gutters. The point behind this is to give the gutters extra exit points. These would also work well alongside splash guards for heavy rain periods.

Aside from removing debris, if you seriously want to maintain your gutter its important to regularly check their angle as well. Over time and with bad weather, gutters can become loose and move. This could change their angle or pitch. Something as small as that can then change the performance of them.

These are not things you need to do on your own though. All of these solutions are something our plumbers northside can help you with.
