When gutters aren’t cleaned regularly, leaves, twigs, dust and sludge build up. Eventually, this debris will prevent your gutter system from doing its job. Even worse, when rainwater can’t escape through your gutter system, it will find other ways to escape – like into your roof cavity – or it pools and causes your gutters to overflow and rust.
Water leaking into your roof cavity can cause thousands of dollars of damage. In a business property, depending on where the leak occurs, any stock or equipment that’s damaged will need to be replaced. The combined cost of stock or equipment replacement and building repairs can quickly escalate which may not be covered by your insurance policy. But all of these problems can be prevented with a regular roof and gutter clean.
A commercial property in Mona Vale was having issues with water ingress in the back corner of the property with the gutters overflowing with debris. In heavy downpours the gutter system couldn’t handle the large amount of rainwater. As a result, the water pooled and then dispersed into the roof cavity or overflowed the guttering to run down the side of the building.
