While it is true that a properly installed rainwater drainage system will give you few headaches, it is important that you do not neglect its maintenance. Gutter maintenance should preferably be carried out by the same professionals who installed it, and with the necessary regularity depending on the specific place in which they are located, normally once or twice a year.
Gutter maintenance in late fall is definitely a must.
Gutters must be clean to properly withstand rainfall and low temperatures during winter. If your gutters are clogged and accumulate water inside, this could end up freezing with the drop in temperatures and this will rapidly deteriorate the system, producing breaks, fissures, and possibly irreparable damage.
A gutter bumbung system without proper maintenance will undoubtedly end up leaking and cracking. The water will not drain properly and will end up falling down the facade of the building, producing leaks towards the interior. It can also end up seeping into the foundation and causing expensive damage to repair to the building structure, which can be dangerous.
Another problem that is appreciated if your gutters do not function properly is the appearance of stains on the facade. Both the unsightly water and lime marks on the facade and the possible appearance of mold will make the facade of your home look abandoned. In addition, its restoration will be much more expensive than dedicating the budget and time necessary to keep your gutters in good condition.
As you can see, the carelessness in the maintenance of your rainwater drainage system can cause serious problems at home, not to mention the cost of the corresponding repairs. Remember that at the end of autumn your gutters must be in good condition to withstand the harsh winter conditions and you can be sure that in the long term this will mean significant savings.
