Do Your Gutters Need Urgent Repairs or Replacement?
Make sure you do not wait until the next storm or heavy rain until you do something about your guttering problems.
Here are some common gutter problems that can occur of any type of roof:
Blocked gutters or valleys
Over months or years a build-up of leaves and debris collect in the gutters and valleys. In the valleys this can be severe, as if a valley over-flows due to a blockage this can pour water inside the roof. More leaks are caused by blocked valleys than by any other cause.
The first step is to clean your gutters out. Valley seal can be a great solution for valleys. This is a very adhesive Bitumus foam that goes between the edge of the sheets or tiles and the valley, and forms a wall so water cannot push up under the edge of the valley and into the ceiling cavity.
Rust in gutters
Rusting of gutters occurs due to water sitting in the gutter due to insufficient fall and/or leaves and debris causing a blockage and therefore restricting the flow of water.
If the rust is minor, it can be ground back with an electric grinder (with a wire brush disc) and then treated with a powerful rust converter. Shieldcoat’s “Rustshield AL” is a great product with outstanding anti-corrosive qualities. If the rust is more than very light, then replacing the gutters / down-pipes / valleys is the best long-term option. You can see our range of Colorbond gutters and colours.
Gutters, downpipes and general rainwater products are important assets on any home where large volumes of water falls on the roof top area. That’s why Reliance offer a complete range of gutter and rainwater goods that protect the building and collect and channel the excess water.
