Gutters are an integral part of any home. Without them, many of the potentially negative consequences of heavy rain can start to become apparent. For anyone living in Auckland, gutter replacement should be taken seriously and invested in.
This blog post looks at some of the potential consequences of not having functional gutters on your property or having an inadequate gutter replacement Auckland solution.
Potential Damage to Walls and Foundations
The most obvious consequence of not having functioning gutters is the potential damage that can be done to walls and foundations. When heavy rain falls, it can start to pool and build up against the walls of a property, which can cause damage over time.
Potential Risk of Flooding
There is the potential risk of flooding when gutters are broken or clogged. This is especially true for properties that are located in areas with poor drainage or poor soil composition.
When gutters are not working properly, they can’t effectively channel the water away from the property, leading to an increased risk of flooding.
Potential Risk of Pest Infestations
Not having functioning gutters can increase the risk of potential pest infestations. When gutters become blocked or damaged, they can become a breeding ground for pests and other unwanted critters, increasing the risk of infestations on the property.
Potential Damage to Roofs
When gutters become blocked, it can cause water to pool on the roof, leading to damage to the roofing material and potential leaks.
In addition, when gutters are not functioning properly, the water can start to back up and cause damage to the roofing tiles and shingles, leading to potential roof repairs.
Potential Risk of Mould
As water starts to pool around the property, it can lead to an increased risk of mould growth due to the damp environment. This can lead to an increased risk of health problems as well as potential damage to the property.
