Is your Property Winter Ready?
With the onset of winter there are some basic jobs you can carry out on your property to protect it against the winter elements. These simple checks or low cost routine maintenance jobs can save you money rather than trusting to luck and hoping that everything will be okay. Gutter cleaning and clearing blocked down pipes is just one of the jobs we recommend you carry out to protect your property this Winter.
Blocked gutters can affect water flow which can damage your brick work and cause damp issues. As part of our Autumn Ready Campaign we have been checking Landlords properties, Gutter Cleaning whilst checking the joints plus water testing. We bring any major faults we find to our clients attention and advise accordingly. Take a look at the below video to see what we found when checking some of our Landlords Properties.
Gutters collect and guide rainwater off the roof, through down pipes into the drainage system keeping it away from the brickwork and the building preventing damage to the brickwork and damp issues. Blocked or damaged gutters can cause water to overflow resulting in potential damage or expensive repairs if not dealt with at the earliest opportunity. Therefore be pro active and have your gutters checked on a regular basis.
