One of these areas is your guttering [cue puns about your mind being in the gutter!]. When you think about it, if any water or damp is allowed to get into your home from above, it can cause a number of problems for any of the areas below. Many homeowners complain about damp, and how many homes can you see around about that have old or defective guttering, soffits, fascias or downpipes?

Properly installed gutters that are maintained by professionals are a no brainer, and are required in order to ensure that all rainwater is drained away from the foundations of any property. This aspect of building has become even more crucial in recent years as a result of severe weather and countrywide flooding. Modern guttering is designed to remain functional and durable as well as giving the home an attractive appearance. Your gutters from Chelmsford Roofline Ltd, will:-

  • Protect your property from damp and mould caused by water seepage
  • Ensure any soil surrounding your home is stabilised, avoiding foundation problems
  • Help prevent flooding and consequent damage
  • Lessen the chance of cracks and erosion of paths, patios, driveways etc
  • Avoid unsightly water staining on brickwork or rendering
  • Prevent water damage to external windows, doors and garage overhead doors

It is important to have your gutters regularly cleared of any leaves, soil or weeds so that they are in full working order. After all your gutters are not intended for gardening. Get them cleaned once or twice per year if you’ve trees nearby, but even where there are no trees in the area you would still be wise to have your gutters checked and cleaned. Good quality gutters, securely fastened to the fascias should not leak nor come away under heavy snow.
