The variation of guttering styles and materials doesn’t stop the fact that this essential part of your roofs drainage system needs to be maintained to the same level as the rest of your homes slate or tiled roof.

Gutter repairs and replacement is just as vital as roofing in Glasgow. From moulded cast iron gutters to aluminium, plastic and lead gutters, our gutter repair and replacement service covers them all.

While it may seem obvious, your homes gutters are there to help collect and direct the water that run off of your homes slate or tiled roof. This collected water can then be drained away using down pipes that can connect to your homes external drainage system.

Glasgow and Edinburgh are both cities with a lot of Trees and other shrubbery. This means that over time, gutters can gather a significant amount of dry leaves in Autumn. They can also be a perfect environment for moss, mould and a catch trap for dislodged slates that have slipped off of your homes roof thanks to nail rot or storm damage. When you combine all of these factors, you can get a build up and blockage that will significantly reduce your gutters ability to drain away. For Glasgow homes that have iron gutters, this can lead to rust corrosion and permanent damage to the gutter sections. And in the winter, this poor drainage can cause ice damage in freezing conditions which can warp and damage your gutters further.

This collection of debris can then also present the ideal environment for Pigeons and other animals looking to build nests.

As you can see, if gutters are left un-maintained, then it can lead to blockages and overspills where the excess rain water can spill out over the sides of your gutter and onto exterior walls. If those ways have poor quality pointing and/or gaps in the brickwork, this can cause water to penetrate your home and cause potentially disastrous water damage to the inside of your home.
