Checks you can do yourself:
- Ensure gutter outlets are not blocked.
- Check whether there is overflow from your gutters in heavy rain—if so, this could indicate a blockage.
- Look for any missing slates—you don’t want a leak! Slipped slates and tiles can not only be harmful for your property but can harm people below too!
It’s important to get these issues fixed before they become bigger ones, regular maintenance can drastically improve the longevity of gutters and rainwater systems. As with any work at height, care must be taken using appropriate safety measures.
If in doubt, get a professional.
