Why should I get the gutters on my property cleared?
Gutters are a vital component in your property’s drainage system and it is important that you keep it
well-maintained. Ignoring maintenance on gutters can lead to unforeseen costly damage to your property. Your buildings insurance may not cover for damage to property caused by poorly maintained gutters.
How often should I get the gutters on my property cleared?
We recommend at least once a year and in some cases the gutters will need cleaning twice a year. Even if the property is not close to trees, other debris will still collect in the gutters for example moss, silt and seedlings which birds have left behind.
I own a buy to let property, are the tenants responsible for clearing the gutters on the property they rent from me?
Many of our customers are buy to let landlords and take the view that their investment needs to be looked after and well maintained. It's always prudent for the landlord to take responsibility for clearing blocked gutters. We normally offer an annual maintenance schedule or end of tenancy gutter clear. Our video evidence is kept on file and our invoice gives proof for insurance companies that routine maintenance has been carried out. Regular maintenance is always more cost effective than having to renew the guttering system on a property.
