Cleaning your eavestroughs, gutters and downpipes is incredibly important to protecting your home from potentially serious water damage. Overflows can allow water to enter your brickwork and damage the interior of your home, so proper cleaning and maintenance is crucial.
• Blockages in the gutter or downpipe
• Leaks caused by rusty or damaged joints
• A sagging gutter caused by overloading or faulty brackets or screws.
At Gutter Force, our suction method allows us to effectively see if a downpipe is blocked. We utilize this technology to blow air into the downpipe. If the air does not freely flow through the pipe, it is obvious that there is a blockage. A blockage could likely be missed by someone who manually pulls debris from your gutters and does not use airflow to spot blockages.
If a blockage is found, we manually disconnect the necessary parts of your gutter, eavestrough and downpipe system in order to properly clean them. We’ve found that 30% of the homes we service had downpipe blockages that they didn’t even know about! These blockages can cause water overflow, leaking, basement flooding, foundation damages and various other problems.
If there are damages to any portion of your gutter or downpipe, we can repair or replace these parts quickly and efficiently.
Blockages can also cause gutter sagging, due to a build-up of debris. If this problem is not rectified promptly, it can cause even more serious and costly damage.
