GUTTER REPAIR & REPLACEMENT
Gutter Repair & Replacement
Because gutters are installed along the roofline of your home, the location makes it very difficult for non-experienced roofers to correctly inspect them. The general purpose of gutters is to control the flow of water when it rains. This reduces the risk of erosion issues around the foundation of the building, water damage, and even damage to the landscaping and area around the building. When gutters are not in good condition, they are not able to work to their full potential.
So how does the average person know if their gutters are in good condition or if they require maintenance or repair? You need an experienced and certified roof repairer to attend, assess and report for you. That’s where Inner West Gutter repairs can help.
Some common issues with gutters in Sydney’s Inner West are:
• Box gutters leaking because of broken joins
• Gutter holding water because of not being installed correctly
• Gutter and downpipes too small for the size of the roof
• Leaves and debris sitting in the gutter which blocks water course and leads to rust
• Moss and plants growing inside the gutters
• General age of the gutters which can also lead to problems with eaves rotting
• Internal box gutters not fitted with overflow to allow water run off during heavy storms

Regular commercial gutter cleaning is essential to the integrity of your commercial property. Having a 3 monthly gutter clean, check and report booked in is so important, so that the integrity of your commercial gutters and roof is kept sound. Often, people only call a roofer when the problem occurs. At this stage it can often be too late, and instead of repairing the gutters, it may lead to needing a full gutter replacement. This is much more costly. Having your 3-month check booked in with Inner West Gutter Repairs will ensure that any issues with your commercial gutters will be picked up early before the problem gets out of control.
Another common issue is with properties close to the ocean. The ocean creates a salty overspray that can travel 500 meters from the coast. This salty air leads to rusting metal gutters and downpipes very quickly. In these situations, PVC is a much better option. This will ensure no rust will occur.
The biggest issue we come across is insurance companies. If you need to make a claim on your insurance regarding roof repairs, your insurance company will send an assessor to conduct a full inspection on your roof and look at its condition. If your gutters are found to be in bad shape, or not cleaned out regularly, this can stop your insurance company from covering your roof repairs. This is because they will put the roof repairs down to maintenance. This is just another reason why regular maintenance and check-ups of your gutter is so important.
