What you need to know about Gutter & Downpipe Replacements
Eventually gutters and downpipes loose their function and need to be replaced and this often happens sooner than needed if they are not kept clean. When debris builds up, moisture is retained and the corrosion process is accelerated. Because of this, we recommend annual to bi-annual cleans which can double or triple the life of your gutters and downpipe system.
Think your gutters and downpipes need replacing?
The signs to look out for are:
- Gaps & Cracks in the structure
- Standing water in your gutter
- Sagging gutters
- Peeling paint
- Visible water damage marks
- Overflowing water
At Gallant we recommend Colourbond metals for many reasons; Not only do they come in a large and varied colour range, but now with the introduction of Matte colours, they look great and are far more durable than standard metal gutters. New plumbing laws also mean the installation of new gutters need to provide an overflow relief system. This means when torrential rain occurs or when there is a blocked downpipe, rainwater can safely overflow away from the building and not into the structure causing potential damage and costly expenses. We also provide a plumbing certificate of compliance to ensure you’re getting the highest level of workmanship and using only the best and highest quality materials.
