Many common roofing issues can be traced back to problems with the guttering or rain heads. Very few people take little or any notice of their roofs, let alone the guttering, especially during the long dry summer months. Unfortunately, that’s probably when the problems that can lead to more serious issues are building up.
Metal guttering can become blocked due to missing or damaged gutter guards allowing debris into the system. The harsh Australian climate is constantly expanding and contracting metal pipe work and guttering, causing undetected cracking and splitting. The end result is that water doesn’t drain, pipes and guttering overflow, and water damage or ingress into the property won’t be far behind.
