Cleaning gutters

The guttering system in your home is made to collect water, however, sometimes excess build-up cannot be helped. Build-up can be detrimental to the health of your gutters, and if they become blocked, this could lead to a series of disasters. First of all, your water will not be able to drain which means that it may overflow or make its way into the ceilings, walls, windows, and inner foundations and if you leave them blocked throughout summers, they may be a fire hazard.

If structural damage or heartache from losing your home due to fire isn’t on your to-do list, consider getting your gutters cleaned, it is very necessary for the health of your home. Getting your gutters cleaned when necessary will also make sure that your gutters and downpipes have a long life and will withstand more for longer. Not to mention that clogged gutters can be a great breeding ground for mosquitoes.

If you’re wondering how often your gutters need cleaning, the general need is once a year. However, if you live in an area with a large population of trees, this figure may become larger and you may be looking at needing it done 2-3 times per year.

Repairing or replacing gutters and downpipes

Keeping up with building and home maintenance is highly important when it comes to the longevity of your home. It is your biggest and most important asset so making sure that it stays whole and without damage should be of the utmost importance. Knowing when it is time to replace your gutters and downpipes is important because, without them, your home may be in a lot of trouble.

When your drainage isn’t up to standard, there is a high risk of roof leaks, roof damage, and many repair costs trying to fix the damage that a leak will cause. While the upfront costs for replacing and repairing your gutters and downpipes may be steep, it is far easier to pay than a large amount of cost you may be hit with when your gutters overflow and cause damage to your house. Don’t look over it, face your problem now.

Fitting Tiles

If your roof is rusty, worn out, leaking, or damaged, it may be time to replace the tiles. A tiled roof can last for many years and can add a lot of value to your home if it is in good condition. Removing and replacing tiles can become expensive, but damage to your home from damaged tiles can be even more expensive.

The installation process will depend entirely on the type of roof you have and the type of tiles you would like. The angle of the roof will also make the instalment costs vary and if the job is dangerous, you may also be charged a larger amount. Another thing to remember is that if you have an asbestos roof, the cost of removal will become higher and you will likely also have to hire an asbestos service to remove and dispose of your asbestos.

They will also dispose of any excess to make sure that it is asbestos-free for the new roofers.

Replacement of valley iron and ridges

Replacing your valley iron and ridges is very important for the longevity of your home and will make all the difference in the long run. The valley iron is the metal water channel that water flows through to get to your guttering. This is an old thing, so we can either remove it or replace it to help you out.

On the other hand, you also have ridges. The condition of your ridges is highly important because the capping of them ultimately determines how waterproof the intersecting point on the roof is. If you have any cracked, broken, or missing mortar, this can allow water to seep heavily into the roof cavity which will result in water damage and ultimately destroy the structure of your home.

To avoid that, you will need to replace your valley iron and ridges to ensure your home stay safe and water damage-free. If your valley iron or ridges are left long enough, they can become loose and cracked, so the key to good roof maintenance is to stay on top of repairs to risk water damage.

Re-pointing or re-bedding ridges

A healthy roof is the foundation of every good home and is essential to the health of your property. Re-pointing and re-bedding your properties roof is an integral part of your properties maintenance as your bedding is the thing that holds your tiles in place and makes sure that they don’t move, and the pointing creates an incredibly important strong and tight seal. If you’re wanting to protect your home from mould growth, damage, or water damage.

Whenever you have excess water penetrate the walls of your home, your ceiling, or your internal structure, this can lead to several issues that will severely affect your home. Any mould will make its way very quickly throughout your home and that is when you will find yourself in deep trouble. Then, on top of that, removing the mould can become more costly than just re-bedding or re-pointing in the first place.

Flooding will also be a big concern when your home requires re-pointing or re-bedding. The damage may be bad enough that it will allow water inside of your property and create a huge amount of damage that will leave you thousands out of pocket. These issues can create a significant amount of damage even worse if it makes its way right to the bottom of your house and under the flooring. Instead of letting any of this happen, get your re-pointing and re-bedding done now.

Your gutter fire could lead to an even more hazardous bushfire which wouldn’t just affect you and your family, but also the other people that may become victim to the bushfire that could emerge from your gutters.
