Many people believe that the drainpipes and guttering are a relatively minor part of a houses’ structure. While gutters aren’t important structurally, they play a major and important role in tackling adverse weather conditions. Faulty gutters and drainpipes are one of the leading causes of water leaks and rising damp, and a lot of people don’t realise the source of the problem until it’s too late to prevent major and costly repairs.
Gutters and drainpipes come in all shapes and sizes – full or half barrel, cast iron or plastic, square or round. No matter what type you have, we at Roof Doctor can diagnose your property and find the cause of any problems. With our free Health Checks, we always present you with a full diagnosis and explain the meaning of what we’ve found, so you know exactly what work needs to be carried out before we make a single modification to your property.
Your Solution For Drainpipe & Gutter Problems
We can repair problems with your guttering quickly and simply, but depending on the extent of the damage, some of your pipework needs to be replaced. If this is the case, the choice will always rest in your hands as to how we replace it. We’ll present you with a list of our recommendations and you can choose freely how you’d like us to tackle the problem.
There is a wide range of piping available, and what’s suitable for your property will depend on what’s already in place. Many older houses will have cast iron pipes, which are extremely durable, but require regular repainting and maintenance. If a cast iron drainpipe comes loose from its fixings, it can bend – then break – irreparably.
PVC drainpipes are more common, especially on newer properties. They don’t need regular repainting, and are much lighter so they don’t run the risk of breaking their fixtures. That doesn’t mean they don’t need regular maintenance, though. A hole or crack in your PVC gutter can still lead to water damage both inside and outside your home.
