Get the Best Gutter Repairs & Replacement Services by Adelaide Roofers

Gutters are essential for keeping the rainwater funneled into the right areas, but when they get clogged, it can cause some serious problems. Gutters can get clogged in many ways. Homes in the Adelaide area often have various trees around their property that drop their leaves, seeds and nuts at different times of years. These always seem to wind up in the gutters.

The best way to handle this is simply by having the gutters cleaned out annually. If you’ve been negligent about this chore, then you may need gutter repairs or replacement. Though this is one of those things we all often put off, a big rain storm might seriously damage your roof if your gutters aren’t working properly.

One thing that Adelaide homeowners often do is try to repair the gutters themselves. The average homeowner doesn’t have the correct tools to get the job done right. For some, being up on a ladder and moving around can be quite dangerous. One fall and you’re in the hospital with a broken leg. We also do not recommend using those cheap plastic coils in your gutters that are sold in most hardware stores. They prevent the efficient flow of rainwater and cause leaves to clog up more easily.

A box gutter is called this because it’s usually boxed into the middle or edge of the roof where it collects water and discharges it into a downpipe system. A good box gutter will have an emergency overflow so that when the downpipes block up or the capacity of the box gutter is exceeded, the backed up water can escape outside the roof area.

Without an overflow, the excess water will flow back into the roof area and inside the home. The box gutter is the weakest link and care must be taken that it is draining correctly and does not become blocked. The best choice for a box gutter is to use a better material than the roof. This usually means a Colorbond™ or stainless steel box gutter.

Why you Really Need Gutters?

Though some homeowners believe they can get by without properly installed gutters, the truth is that gutters offer a wide range of great benefits. Too much rain falling right off the roof’s edge will cause erosion in your yard. Your siding and foundation can also be affected. When you consider the cost, gutters are well worth the investment.

You’ll have much better success with a good quality product like Colorbond. This is a high quality steel product that has been coated and comes in 22 designer colors.

With cheap plastic gutters, you’ll constantly be up on a ladder trying to repair a sagging gutter or downspout that’s come lose.
