Winter Roof Maintenance – Guttering and Gullies

With the leaves falling faster than the temperature, it’s now time to clean out your guttering and gullies.

Blocked outlets cause rainwater to overflow the guttering and run down the walls.  This rainwater, constantly running down an exterior wall can penetrate the brickwork and mortar damaging it especially if rain cycles with repeated frosts and thaws.
