The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. The gutter also helps to reduce erosion; prevents leaks in basements and crawl spaces; protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water; and provides a means to collect rainwater.
A downpipe is connected to the running outlet section of the guttering carrying the water to the base of the property to drain away. It is important to clean guttering to reduce the risk of blocked down pipes and blocked drains. Our services offer gutter repairs and complete new gutters and downpipes consisting of pvc, traditional, cast iron, galvanised steel guttering and lead guttering / gullies.
