Some people may also debate on hiring a professional for the job or just doing it on their own to save money.

Expert gutter maintenance and repair is essential if you want your home to be dry and free of mould. Most homeowners in Paignton usually don't have the roofing, gutter and fascia expertise needed to ensure that gutters and downspouts are working properly. However, this skill isn't particularly difficult to learn, and if you don't want to bring in an expert to sort it out whenever there's a problem, you will have to learn to do it yourself.

It doesn't really matter where you live, the procedure is pretty much the same for gutter repair. Belfast, Cardiff, London, Glasgow or even in Timbuktu - gutter repair worldwide doesn't change much. Gutters leak, they block, they come away from the wall, they get damaged by storms, snow, ice, too much heat in summer, too much rain in winter - in short, wherever there's weather, gutters are subject to a lot of wear and tear over time.

Repairs to gutters means climbing ladders and getting up high. There is risk involved, of course, so if you'd prefer to leave it to the experts, that's understandable. Otherwise, do your homework on all the safety aspects of the job if you intend doing it yourself.

You will need a good, strong sturdy ladder, one with wide rubber feet to ensure proper grounding. You will also need a reliable assistant to hold the ladder - don't climb high ladders on your own. You will need the proper tools and an understanding of what you are looking for, and what you need to do when you find the problem.

Anyone doing the gutter installation and repair is smart to keep in mind that before any task is performed; all necessary tools and equipment must already be prepared. To enumerate a few, mitre or hacksaws are needed for cutting the gutter as well as the downpipe to their required lengths; snips are for trimming the gutter edges; drill bits, set of pliers, levels, measure and ladder are for other related tasks. Professional gutter specialists in Paignton would have all these tools at hand but DIY plumbers can buy the essential tools from hardware and home improvement stores.

Gutters and downpipes in Paignton will develop holes through rust, or through getting punctured by falling branches in storms, or in many other possible ways.

You will need to have the interior of the gutter spotlessly clean and dry. Then apply the sealer where the leak or hole is. Apply it liberally as it will shrink as it dries out. Then spread it out to cover the leaking area, making sure it adheres properly to the inside of the gutter.

When the rains come heavy in autumn and winter, it's always good to know that the water is being carried away in the manner it was designed to and not leaking from your gutters and downspouts in a way that is undermining your basement, collecting along the foundation of your house, building up hydrostatic pressure and just waiting to seep into the house with all the severe damp problems that will eventually cause. There's no fun in living in a damp home with mould, after all.

So, to sum up, if you are confident about do-it-yourself you can maybe think about doing your own gutter repairs in Paignton, but remember this is dangerous work that involves working at height. If you have any doubts at all, it is recommended that you seek the help of a professional Paignton gutter specialist who will have all the tools, equipment and knowhow to carry out the work safely.

Common Gutter Problems in Paignton

Cleaning your home's gutters in Paignton is often a routine job which should be completed each spring and autumn to ensure the structural integrity of the property is fully maintained. If not cleaned as required, the gutter isn't able to work as intended. Once a gutter is clogged up with leaves or similar debris, damage might well be caused to the actual roof and fascia (area behind the guttering) as well as a home's foundation (crawl space or basement) if water is allowed to pour over the side of the gutter and down one of the wall. Cleaning the guttering and downpipes is quite a simple process without a need for any special tools, although if damage is found with home's gutters, you might come across one of these common problems:

Blockage - a blockage or clog in the gutter system is quite common and results from the build-up of leaves, twigs, or similar debris. A blockage in the drainage system is more noticeable after heavy rain or harsh weather, and seems to appear at the mouth or the elbow of the downspout. Every area is quite easy to reach and can most often be cleaned by lifting the joints apart and clearing out the debris. A simple solution to avoid possible blockages is by installing gutter protectors to keep out debris.

Standing Water - a guttering system that is pulled away from the house might sag which could cause water to build up and not drain as desired. Guttering systems need to be angled or pitched in the direction of the downspout for optimum drainage potential. If is often suggested that a straight gutter running at a length of 8-ft or so is made to angle at a half-inch and the side that pitches is at least a half-inch above the height of the side with the downpipe. Re-attaching any loose sections of the guttering should help with eliminating this type of problem.

Holes - a hole might appear in a particular section of the guttering system due to a build up of debris. Common causes of damage to a home's gutter is due to debris falling from trees which get caught up and don't clear by themselves. A simple technique to repair holes includes the use of specific roofing cement. If a hole in the gutter isn't repaired in the short-term it has the potential to grow a lot larger, which is likely to result in significant damage. Roof cement appears like a caulk and easily fixes a hole of this type.

Signs That Gutters Need Replacing

The question as to when you should replace the gutters on your home in Paignton may seem obvious, but actually you should inspect your gutters for signs that are not so obvious. Here are some clues that you may have gutter problems.

Leaking Gutters Paignton

In the winter, look to see if snow and ice are building up within the gutter and on the roof. These can cause leaks that damage your home in Paignton. Water can seep behind the gutters in some circumstances and cause water to leak into your walls causing mould and rot.

An indicator that your gutters are not doing their job is if your basement is damp or there are cracks in the foundations. Gutters can clog and force the water to overflow over the sides thus causing water to accumulate around your foundations.

Discolouring of the brickwork of your home in Paignton can be from backsplash. Wind (blowback) can force water from overflowing gutters onto your exterior brickwork. That discolouration of your brickwork is an indicator that you may have a gutter problem.

Mould or peeling paint on your home's exterior may be a sign that your gutters are leaking and may need fixing or replacing.

Weight from clogs and debris can cause a gutter to pull away from a house or sag and this can also cause water to leak behind the gutter which wreaks havoc. If your gutters are not hanging properly they may not channel water into the downspouts in an efficient manner.

These are the kinds of problems that an experienced gutter specialist in Paignton can spot for you. Do not wait until you have a problem. Be diligent. It is to your advantage to inspect your gutters several times a year. You do not necessarily have to climb on the roof to do this. Walk around your Paignton property and look for indications that water is causing erosion in unexpected places. Little sections of rocky material where you originally had smooth topsoil are one sign. A small area of uneven topsoil, spaces where the water on what was a smooth surface now pools is another. Give your gutters a regular visual inspection from the ground. In particular, make it a point to walk around during a rain storm. Watch your gutter system in action. Inspect each downspout during the rain. Where does the water flow once it exits the downpipe? If you live in an area with deciduous trees that drop their leaves in autumn, make it a point to look for overflows or blockages caused by buildup of the leaf material.

Reasons to Call a Gutter Specialist

Your gutters protect your home in Paignton from rotting, your roof from caving in, your basement from flooding, and your life from falling apart because of water in all the wrong places. However, your guttering can fall apart from wear and tear, too. It can also be a trap for various debris, such as leaves and twigs. Not only can such debris clog up your guttering, it can also catch fire when it is hot and dry. Your guttering in Paignton therefore has to be in tip top shape no matter what time of the year it is.

In general, cleaning out and maintaining your guttering can last for up to a whole day, and it is best done in good weather. All you need to do is take out the debris, clean out the gutters, check for leaks, and patch these leaks up. Granted, it will take hours for you to set up your ladder and equipment, and hours to fix everything up, but you could end up saving money if you do it yourself.

However, there are also dangers of repairing your gutter on your own. For one, you could injure yourself if you fall, lose your balance, or meet any kind of accident.

You could also patch up your gutter with the wrong sealants, which could damage your gutter and cause your house to flood. If you cut yourself on the metal, you will need to go to the hospital immediately, especially since gutters have a lot of dirt and germs in them. There are many ways that you could go wrong with cleaning out and maintaining your gutter system, so take note of all the risks before you do anything.

For more information, talk to professional gutter specialists in your area, and make sure that you are aware of all the places you need to go to if anything happens to you.
