You don’t need us to tell you that your home is incredibly valuable. Your sanctuary and shelter, a home is most likely the most expensive asset a person will buy in their lifetime so it’s only fair that you maintain it regularly and to a high standard. If you’re lucky enough to live or work in Huddersfield, your home is likely to be extremely precious to you, given that the West Yorkshire market town is such a thriving place to be.
Many people are proactive in cleaning the insides of their homes but not many consider the exterior, which requires regular care and treatment too. When it comes to guttering and roofline maintenance, frequent inspections are key, to avoid any existing problems escalating.
The ‘roofline’ are the boards that run along the bottom edge of your roof where it comes into contact with the wall of your home. Although ‘guttering’ is a common term linked to the edges of roofs, Rooflines are also made up of parts known by less common names such as ‘fascias’ and ‘soffits’.
In contrast, a ‘gutter’ is a shallow trough fitted under the edge of a roof which collects and disposes of rainwater. If the right guttering is installed correctly, it shouldn’t need much more attention other than the occasional removal of leaves and dirt.
Everything has an expiry date or a time where it begins to age and decay. Now imagine the edge of your roof. With all the rain, the wind and storms the North of England endures, just think how much damage your roofline will incur!
The temptation might be to take a DIY approach when it comes to cleaning your guttering and roofline but this isn’t always the best course of action. Most people don’t have the experience, professional training, correct equipment or simply the time to give guttering the suitable care it demands. Ploughcroft however, do!
If your guttering is beginning to appear white around the joints this could be a sign of leakage. If you find your gutters are blocked they will decline faster if rainwater isn’t allowed to flow correctly. If the guttering’s joints degenerate further your walls are likely to become stained.
Don’t worry if you encounter any of these problems or if you notice that your guttering is sagging or losing parts.
