During the course of any gutter cleaning works we will assess the condition of the gutters to determine if there are any minor remedial works required, which will include repairs such as leaking gutter joints, holes in the gutters, blocked outlets, broken and/or mis-aligned down pipes and missing wire baskets.
Major gutter defects are likely to include extensive joint sealing and/or the requirement for a gutter surface treatment where the galvanised steel has been identified as corroded, flaking and brittle. We can offer various economical options for gutter surface treatments and in situations where the gutters are too deteriorated for these types of works a gutter lining system may be recommended.
GUTTER SURFACE TREATMENTS
Galvanised steel will over time start to corrode causing the gutters to rust, flake and eventually perforate. If left, this corrosion will degrade to such an extent that the gutters will need to be plated prior to any works, or in the worst case be replaced.
Most gutter surface treatments are determined by both the condition of the gutters and the longevity required. For example if you lease your building you may only require a treatment that will last for a couple of years; however should you own the building you may require a longer term solution. We have various alternative treatments to suit your requirements, if you would like to discuss your options please get in touch.
