Thinking about ditching those old downpipes?

An important aspect of home maintenance is the regular cleaning and repair of gutters and downpipes. Clogged downpipes are prone to rust, corrosion and rotting. This issue can cause costly problems for your home if left unchecked.

Gutter and downpipe maintenance should be a top priority on your homeowner to-do list. When these rainwater pathways get clogged, things can get downright ugly! Rust, corrosion, and rotting can take over, leading to costly home damage if ignored. So, stay ahead of the game and keep those pipes flowing!

Signs It’s Time for a Replacement

  • Frequent leaks or visible rust on existing downpipes.
  • Water stains on walls, indicating potential overflow.
  • Noticeable cracks or structural damage to current downpipes.
  • Decreased efficiency in managing rainwater flow.

Keeping your downpipes and gutters clean should be done around 3 times a year to ensure that there are no blockages or a build up of dirt, leaves and debris. Regular maintenance of downpipes and gutters not only prevents potential water damage to your property but also helps maintain the structural integrity of your home, saving you from costly repairs in the long run.

Do the gutters overflow with rainwater whenever it rains?

Was the answer to the above questions yes? Then it’s likely the down pipes and gutters are blocked up with leaves or other debris such as tree bark, branches and sticks.

Can you see water stains building up on the roof ceilings?

Even with proper care and maintenance, your drainage system can eventually show signs of corrosion as a result of element exposure. This will cause damage to occur and require corrective action. If you don’t act when you first notice leaking gutters you are risking damage to facia boards, scotia and internal roof leakage.

Do the rain gutters or down pipes drip during wet weather?

How do you prevent clogged gutters and downspouts in the first place? The easiest way is to have mesh gutter guards professionally installed; this diverts the majority of rubbish away from your gutters, falling harmlessly on the ground.

The unwelcome trio of dirt, leaves, and debris can party in your downpipes, causing unwanted clogs and overflows.

Get ready to climb that ladder! It’s time to give your gutters and downpipes some love, at least three times a year, to make sure they’re clear of debris, dirt, and leaves.
