The guttering around your property is incredibly important in making sure it remains protected from an excessive amount of rain and is dealt with correctly.
Plumbing and guttering are vital in protecting your roof and is responsible for draining water away.
At Warm Space, we’ve researched three signs that indicate that you should think about calling a plumber to your property.
Gutters are pulling away from the roof
You may be noticing that the guttering is slowly edging away from the fascia boards and roof.
This can be due to the board rotting away and the fasteners around the guttering gradually failing.
In these situations, you should think about calling a plumber to your property to assess the damage and the implications it could cause for the future.
Overflowing of water during rainfall
During a rainy day, you might be able to hear a waterfall coming up above from your guttering. This can be caused by debris blocking the guttering and pipes.
When this happens, water cannot be properly drained from the property, which causes a waterfall effect around the property.
The added weight of the water can lead to the guttering to pull away, and trapped water can cause an unpleasant smell too. How to clear a gutter?
Cracks, rust or holes appearing
An ageing guttering system will be prone to cracks and rust appearing. You might notice screws and fastenings discarded around your home too.
You can also opt to buy a sealant from a local hardware store, however, if these issues are appearing around your guttering system, you might need to consider installing a new one. What other 10 signs are there?
