Why Overflowing Gutters Endanger and Devalue Your Home

Gutter weedsWhen gutters overflow, they’re probably full of leaves or the downpipes are blocked.  If rainwater can’t escape through the downpipes, it escapes whichever way it can.  The overflow can create puddles big enough to damage your gardens, or be forced inside your home where damage is often far more costly.

Water and electricity are a dangerous mix that can make gutter problems a fire hazard that endangers your family. And if gutters overflow into your roof space, ugly stains can appear on your ceiling and devalue your home, perhaps your biggest asset.


Gutter Guard

Gutter Guard largeGutter Guard is a protective mesh installed over your gutters. It lets rain in, but keeps leaves, sticks, bark and other potential blockages out.  It’s quick and easy to install, and considering how much it can save you in the long term, it’s incredibly cost-effective.

The Result Is: No blockage.  No rust or leakage.  No damage to your property.

Roof Restoration and Roof Repair

Gutter before after 294x212
Galvanised metal roof
Roof restoration enhances asset value

Roof restoration and roof repair protect your property and increase its value.

On the other hand, failing to find and fix roof damage can inflict serious harm on the property and its value and leave the lives of its occupants exposed to danger.

When water leaks into roof spaces or down in between walls, it can come into contact with electrical wiring.  The consequences can be catastrophic short circuits, fires, costly damage to electrical devices and even electrocution of people attempting to use the electricity.  And even if none of those occurs, roof leaks can stain and deform the plaster board in ceilings and walls, driving down the value of the property.

For these reasons, roof damage needs to be detected and fixed at an early stage before it causes major safety hazards or significant property damage.

Take it from the experts …

… a good roof is the foundation of your home!

Roof restoration enhances your asset valueMaking sure your roof is sound and secure is incredibly important, yet many homeowners neglect their roof. Like everything in your home, it requires regular maintenance. If a leaky roof warps and stains ceiling sheets, for example, the ceiling may need to be replaced and, generally speaking, a roof repair is considerably more economical and less invasive than a ceiling replacement.

Roof restoration and roof repair are a low-cost ways of ensuring that your home – and your family – stay safe.  If you haven’t had your roof inspected recently, we suggest you take up our offer of a free roof inspection today.  This is how it works:

1.  Initial Consultation

Our tradespeople will give you affordable options. Rather than just handing over a report, we’d like to sit down with you and explain the exact state of your roof.  Not a sales pitch – it’s an education on your roof’s condition.
