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.
