If you are like most other property owner in Mandurah, chances are you never check your gutters and downpipes.
Mandurah being a coastal city, there is a lot of salt in the air which can be a catalyst for the rusting of old metal gutters.
If your gutters are faulty and leak, or if your downpipes are not efficient or set up correctly and the drain pipes don’t take the water away for your home, then issues may develop.
Gutters, downpipes and drainage are there for a reason and have a purpose. This purpose is to get the rainwater away for your home.
Rainwater that falls onto your roof should be moved away from the footings of your home in a quick and efficient manner.
If you desire, rainwater can be collected into a tank for use at a later stage for drinking or watering your garden.
However, water that runs and settles around the footings of your home can cause major problems including a loss of foundation stability, a potential for rising damp as well as mould issues to name a few.
Gutters that are poorly installed,aged, have cracks and holes, and are rusty, all lead to potential leaking issues. Leaking gutters can cause water to run into the ceilings which in turn causes damp, mould and even collapsing. It is essential that your gutters and downpipes are functioning correctly.
If the gutters and downpipes are all working as they should, then focus on the drainage to get water away from your property, this needs to be fully functional.
