Defective drainage and gutter systems can cause significant damage to structures and buildings. We often find that poorly maintained drainage and gutter systems are the root cause of many water ingress sources.
Poor drainage can also lead to additional issues. Algae and moss growth is prevalent in the damp areas that can be caused by faulty drainage systems, not only does this effect the aesthetics of a building but where algae slime growth occurs to accessible surfaces this can result in a slipping hazard.
Come the colder winter temperatures, excess standing water that accumulates due to poor and damaged drainage can cause further issues as it turns to ice. The misalignment of drainage sections, displacement of section joints and deteriorated seals are other common issues that can lead to failure.
Both partial and complete blockage of drainage systems is commonly caused by the accumulation of vegetation, debris and leaf fall.
To help prevent future blockages and problems with your drainage systems, we would recommend that planned maintenance is programmed to have all guttering systems inspected and cleaned of debris on an annual basis. We offer a range of services designed to keep your guttering and drainage systems in fully functional working order.
