Guttering….we don’t even notice it when everything is flowing fine and working perfectly. Here’s some questions to prove my point….
- What colour is your guttering?
- What material is it made of? (uPVC, cast iron, asbestos,aluminium)
- What shape is it? (half round, square)
Unless you have got new guttering installed recently, you probably only knew at best, one of the answers! Right?
Well anyway, my point is that even though we don’t pay much attention to our guttering unless there is a problem, they are an integral part of our property’s defense against rain and damp, and because of this, they should be maintained properly.
This consists of cleaning out all the muck, moss, silt, tennis balls, dead birds, cigarette ends, bottles, leaves, teddy bears and grass which we have actually found in some guttering. Downspouts are key in letting the water escape to the drains, and these too must be kept clear to prevent overflowing guttering.
So if your property is in Belfast or the surrounding area, and the guttering haven’t been cleaned out in a while, why not give us a call for a no obligation, free quotation for gutter cleaning in Belfast.
Now if you are having trouble with a drip, leak or broken section of guttering and you require a quotation for gutter repair in Belfast, we can call out and let you know exactly what needs done, and the cost.
Some customers ask us to replace the guttering, but in many instances only a small section needs repaired or replaced, saving a lot of expense. So before you think about replacing guttering, ask us if we can repair it.
In our experience, the old cast iron guttering can be very problematic, especially on a terrace house were it joins onto your neighbour’s newer uPVC type of guttering. This can be a challenge to fix, but over the years we have developed successful, cost effective methods of repairing cast iron guttering in Belfast, saving the customer\landlord the expense of replacing it.
We love the challenge of gutter repairs (sad, I know) but the damage and expense that faulty guttering can cause, means it well worth getting your guttering cleaned out and repaired, so you can carry on forgetting all about it.
