What is guttering?

Guttering comprises small, thin troughs or channels that are fixed to the lower edge of a roofline. It provides a necessary function to allow rainwater to flow off and away from your roof to safeguard your property. Guttering comes in a broad choice of materials and styles including metal, UPVC, PVC and concrete. In homes, they are typically made from plastic or metal.

How does guttering work?

Roofs are designed to allow rainwater to roll down their slopes and filter into the guttering. Guttering functions by directing water away from your roof and draining it into a downspout. A downspout then diverts the water to the base of the house and away to protect the basement and foundations of the property. There is typically also a splash block at the bottom of the downspout to further divert the rainwater from the house.

Why is guttering important?

If you fail to install guttering or don’t maintain existing guttering, you could face costly and frustrating issues such as:

Rainwater beneath your roof tiles which could lead to expensive roof damage.

Damage to your brickwork as water may run down your house.

Extensive damage to the foundations of your home including cracking and shifting.

Your basement could potentially flood.

Prevent Water Damage

Guttering is an essential part of your roof system and works to keep your home watertight. Without guttering, rainwater could collect in your roof and loft, causing condensation, mould, deterioration and rot.

Protect the Foundations

Guttering protects the foundations of your home by draining water away from your property. If not installed, your home could suffer water damage by rainwater accumulating in the foundations.

Supports Your Roof

As guttering functions to drain rainwater from your property, without it key parts of your roof could suffer damage. This could include your shingles, soffits, fascias and more. If damaged, this could compromise the whole structure of your roof.

UPVC Fascias & Soffits

For a roof system that provides complete ventilation combined with being completely watertight, we recommend our UPVC fascias and soffits. In addition to installing high-quality guttering, fascias and soffits work to safeguard your home and provide ventilation and a protective seal for your home. Along with guttering, UPVC fascias and soffits protect your home against external elements, water ingress, mould, mildew and rot. They also stop pests from gaining access to your roof and loft. Fascias and soffits both provide necessary functions to your home and without them, you could face costly and time-consuming problems. Get in touch with us for more information.
