It goes without saying, your gutters need to be looked after to ensure they are working to their full ability, but understandably, gutters are high and getting up there to clean them and maintain them can be a time consuming and messy task. Here are some of the great benefits of hiring a professional to take care of your gold coast gutter maintenance on your behalf.
Ensures that all work is completed to a high standard
Most reputable gutter maintenance contractors will ensure that your gutters are installed to the very highest standards ensuring that you get a top-notch finish that is going to last. Attempting to tackle the task yourself may see you end up with a shoddy finish, and if you don’t notice it for some time, it can cause significant damage to your home. Our team here at A. I Gutter and Roofing are gutter specialists, and we take immense pride in the standard of our work. We will ensure that it is completed to the very highest standards.
Extend the lifespan of your roof
The better condition your gutters are in, the more likely they are going to direct water away from the roof and home and protect your property from preventable damage. The smallest malfunction in your guttering can cause huge issues for your home. Blockages can send water onto the roof and inevitably into the roof cavity if it is left to pool for extended periods.
Protects your home from water damage
The main objective of your guttering is to direct water away from the house however if your guttering is failing, it will do the opposite. Water damage can go unnoticed for some time if there are no obvious signs. Often it will only get noticed when it has already caused widespread damage. Mould and rot are two of the common problems caused by excessive moisture. It’s not something you ever want your home to have. Not only because it damages your home, but it can be hazardous to your health.
Prevent subsequent damage from occurring to your property
If you have old, sagging or hanging guttering and you don’t fix it promptly, it can cause damage to other components of your home. It can rip at the fascia and the roofing and fall onto whatever is below it, damaging it along the way. Our professional team will ensure your gutters are securely in position.
Ensures your home remains intact in a storm
When strong storms hit, your home can take a battering. Sometimes excessive damage is unavoidable, but if your guttering is already in less than ideal condition, it may become torn from its fixings and catapult into things nearby such as cars or other structural elements. What could have been a simple repair job is now an extensive and expensive replacement job. Without intact guttering in place, your home will be susceptible to water damage until it gets fixed.
Reduces hazards around the home
If your guttering is hanging off or sagging in sections, it can be a hazard. People may accidentally walk into it or a hanging piece of guttering may fall off and hit someone. Guttering can be heavy, and if it falls onto someone, it can cause significant injury. Our team can conduct a comprehensive roof inspection to alert you to any areas of concern, regardless of how small, allowing you to action them sooner rather than later.
Can prevent flooding around your home
Broken gutters, gutters with holes in them, and downpipes that don’t direct away from the home are some of the many guttering issues that can cause flooding around your house. When rainwater isn’t sent away from your home, it will pool at the foundation of your property. This water can then make its way inside and cause widespread damage. If it doesn’t happen to get indoors, having water pooling at the foundation is never a good thing. Over time it can cause issues with the structural integrity of the home, and this is both time-consuming and very expensive to rectify. In more serious cases, you will have to evacuate your home until work has been completed, and this could be months depending on your budget, insurance and the contractor’s availability. The A.I Gutter & Roofing team will help you prevent this scenario altogether with regular inspections and repairs.
Keeps your gardens safe
Many homeowners place great importance on their gardens and landscaping. It adds to the appeal of the home and can make being outside much more enjoyable. When your gutters aren’t functioning as they should, excess water can dump onto the gardens below, flattening them. Some plants cannot survive the constant battering from water and will die or struggle to thrive at the very least.
