Gutter cleaning and maintenance
WealdShine specialise in Residential, Commercial and School Gutter cleaning.
Having your gutters regularly cleaned will avoid water damage. Gutter systems ideally need to be cleaned a minimum of once a year. However, if your property is near a leafy area with trees or has a moss-covered roof your gutters will need to be cleaned at least twice a year Regular gutter cleaning can prevent water damage problems including damp getting into the wall cavity/insulation, rotten wall places and roof trusses, damp and mould inside/outside your walls, flaking plaster and wallpaper and damp patches on your ceilings, all of which can only get worse if no action is taken.
There is also another important factor which property owners may not know – property insurance may not cover water damage if gutters have not been maintained.
Maintenance can be very tricky and highly dangerous. High, awkwardly placed guttering is not a problem for us as we are highly experienced in all aspects of accessibility and Health and Safety pertaining to this kind of work.
We use the traditional latter and hand-cleaning method as this not only gives us the ability to clean the gutters properly but also allows us to check by eye in detail your gutters and roof line for any preventative repairs or servicing that may be needed. Once we have cleaned the debris out of the gutters, we then always flush them through with water. This then allows us to check the function of the gutters, and will highlight any leaking joints and identify blocked downpipes/gullies, etc.
Leaking, damaged and faulty guttering repaired
We specialise in repairing all types of guttering. This encompasses every aspect including faulty clips, rotten seals, leaking joints, missing outlet cone filters, misaligned guttering, pooling and blocked downpipes, etc.
We always keep a selection of guttering spares on our van and if possible will complete any repairs at that time. However, if the problem is more involved and cannot be resolved there and then, we will provide a price for the additional work and if you are happy, arrange a suitable convenient time to come back.
Installation of ALL types and styles of new guttering
If your old guttering or part of it is beyond economical repair, we can supply and install any type or style of new guttering as required. At this stage you can change the type/style/colour of your guttering for cosmetic reasons or you may wish to upgrade your guttering such as fitting a deep-flow system, etc. We use only top-quality products from the market leaders, such as, FloPlast, Marley, Polypipe or Terrain.
