How much does it cost to repair a gutter?
The price for gutter repairs depends on variables, including house height, type of gutter, length, and the type of repairs. Thus, we will do a thorough assessment to quote your job correctly. We want to make sure the quote we give you is fully inclusive. There’ll be no hidden costs after the job is completed.
How long do gutters last on a house?
The lifespan of guttering varies depending on weather conditions, routine maintenance, and many other factors. The National Association of Home Builders estimates 20 years as the average lifespan of galvanized steel and aluminium gutters.
Should I repair or replace my gutters?
When it comes to fixing gutters, we may be able to make repairs if there are localised sections of damage. We will thoroughly assess your gutters then, based on the severity of the damage, we will advise you of the best option for you – repair or replace. We have had many clients who only needed gutter repairs. Hence, we won’t recommend a complete replacement if it’s unnecessary.
How often do gutters need to be cleaned?
You should clean your gutters at least twice a year, once toward the end of spring and once in late summer. This may vary due to a few factors, including trees. If you are surrounded by trees (eg. pine, gum, paperbark), you should consider inspecting your gutters every 3 months. We would also recommend checking your gutters before heavy rains in winter because if they’re blocked, it may cause drainage issues or even leaks in your roof. Similarly, if you are in a fire-prone area, we recommend checking your gutters every 2-3 weeks during the summer to help reduce the risk a fire may pose to your home. However, these regular checks can be done yourself and do not require a professional’s assistance unless you cannot do the task yourself.
What damage can a leaking gutter cause?
When your gutters are leaking, they are not doing their job. And this can damage the structural integrity of the roof and fascia, which can cause roof problems and wood rot. Water can also leak into the wall cavity, damaging internal plaster walls.
Thus, water pooling near the foundations of your home or building can also be a result of leaking gutters and can cause damage and cracking to your home’s foundation. This can become very costly if not fixed quickly.
What is Box Guttering?
Box Guttering is also known as parallel, internal, or trough guttering. However, the main difference from the more common fascia guttering is that it sits behind a parapet or eaves and is not externally visible.
If my gutters need replacing do I have to replace all the fascias and downpipes?
Wherever possible, we will salvage fascia and downpipes. Thus, you must consider that if you update your gutters, the rest may appear old and worn compared to the new Colorbond.
